Art is healing

That statement may seem like an exaggeration, but it's a fact. One of the many reasons art heals us is because of the way it helps us to express ourselves and our emotions through color, form, and texture in ways words cannot describe. Furthermore, art can be healing to those who have experienced trauma or loss.

For example, we all know that old saying "a picture says a thousand words." When you are feeling down or depressed due to some event going on in your life (and let's face it - there always seems to be something), sometimes all you need is one glance at a painting or drawing from someone else who has been exactly where you are today; someone who has had similar feelings before and has moved through them with healing and happiness.

What healing looks like?

Healing is a life-long process and can be different for everyone. Art in your home provides healing through:

- creating order and balance, with art as the central focus of one’s living space;

- reducing anxiety or depression by providing sanctuary from the outside world and reconnecting to oneself;

- healing depression or anxiety by providing a sense of healing to the spirit, mind, and body.

What are some other benefits? Having art around also provides:

- inspiration;

- peace;

- self-confidence. Your home should be an unwavering escape from reality where you can find refuge in your own company!

Art in your home is healing because it encourages you to take time and have an appreciation for the world around you. Looking at art while feeling a sense of peace can help heal stress, depression, or anxiety. It helps put things into perspective that otherwise might be overlooked during difficult times when life feels chaotic. Your personal healing journey begins with finding healing in your home.

Art in your home is healing and can help improve mood, reduce stress levels, decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety. It also reduces feelings of isolation by creating a sense of connection to others through empathy. However, not all art inspires healing or brings the same results: some may trigger negative emotions such as anger or sadness. Find an artist that resonates with you and speaks to your healing needs.

To find an artist, use the following steps:

- Ask friends who have art in their home for recommendations or do a Google search of artists that speak to healing

- Take note of what colors are used in each piece as well as if they include words, symbols, or shapes

- Browse galleries and shops to see if you find a piece that speaks healing to your soul.

If these don't inspire healing for you, try checking out other types of art such as painting, photography, music, or poetry. These mediums can help by opening up new pathways in the brain and improving mental health because they engage different parts of the brain.
