Is Art Therapy Really Needed?

Researchers are finding that the world is still struggling to come to terms with the devasting effects of the pandemic. Many people are still feeling isolated and are stressed when they have to leave their homes. Children and teenagers are finding their schoolwork is suffering as the years of isolation and too much screentime has affected their ability to mix with their peers and regulate their emotions.

And let’s face it, our children are not alone.

As we end the year 2023, the memory of the Covid 19 pandemic slips further back in our minds. But has its effects? Sadly, no.

We all need something to help us with day-to-day life and not every can find the time to see a therapist. But you shouldn’t be left alone to cope – we all need help. That’s why Art Therapy Activity Books were created.

Why Art Therapy?

Arts therapy works by tapping into a person’s creativity and imagination, helping them explore and express emotions that may be difficult to articulate through words. As we engage in the creative process, we learn to let go of self-doubt and embrace the unknown. This openness to experimentation not only enhances our artistic abilities but also spills over into other areas of our lives. Imagine a blank canvas, waiting to be filled with colors, shapes, and lines. Art therapy provides a space where we can experiment, take risks, and explore new possibilities.

Art therapy has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and symptoms of depression. The act of creation itself can be therapeutic, providing a safe outlet for emotions and fostering a sense of accomplishment. Art therapy empowers individuals to navigate their emotions and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

When we engage in art therapy, we enter a state of flow, where time seems to stand still, and our focus is solely on the present moment. This immersion in the creative process allows us to temporarily detach from our worries and anxieties, providing a much-needed respite for our mental well-being.

Creating Your Own Art Space

Creating art requires focus, concentration, and a tranquil environment that allows your ideas to flow freely. Having a dedicated art space provides you with a sanctuary where you can fully immerse yourself in your artistic pursuits. By designating a specific area solely for your art, you create a sacred space that acts as a visual reminder of your commitment to this form of self-expression.

Embarking on any creative endeavor requires discipline and consistency. By setting up a dedicated art space, you signal to yourself and those around you that your art is a priority. Having a designated space helps establish a routine, allowing you to develop a sense of discipline and the ability to seamlessly transition into your creative mindset. It becomes a place where you can retreat to, knowing that your art awaits you, ready to unfold.

The Importance of Mindfulness

Studies have shown that mindfulness can be effective in improving mental health. It has been found to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties and more. By practicing mindfulness, individuals become more aware of their thoughts and emotions, and they learn to accept them without judgment. This can lead to an increase in positive emotions, improved mood, self-esteem, and resilience.

Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. It also reduces the physiological effects of stress on the body. By practicing mindfulness, people can learn to calm their minds and bodies, which can lead to improved health outcomes, such as lower blood pressure and a stronger immune system.

Is Art Therapy for everyone?

If you haven’t experienced the strength and purpose art therapy has to offer, you’re not alone. Some people feel shy about committing to therapy and others aren’t really sure what it’s all about.

Some people believe that they have to be good at art to get anything out of art therapy, which isn’t true. Truthfully, if you can hold a pencil then you will benefit from art therapy. Others believe that art therapy is just for kids – also not true! Art therapy is being utilised in old-age and retirement homes to give residents a fuller life.

Let’s say you are worried about your career. It’s not going the way you want, and others seem to be promoted over you. Art therapy sessions can help you work out what you need to do to overcome the issues that are holding you back. They will increase your confidence and self-worth. Best of all, they will help you deal with wanted feelings of anger or doubt.

Are you worried about your children and how they are doing at school? Did you know that art therapy sessions can help them identify their emotions and develop greater coping skills. They can give them better communication skills, build self-confidence and self-esteem.

What about you? What issues do you face each day? Would you like to find how to cope with them and  create a better life for yourself?
