Studies show that the arts are a powerful tool of healing. What does creativity have to do with health, healing and well-being? Studies show that engaging in any creative process is healing. Whether you make a simple drawing or collage, look at art or talk about it, creativity and the arts can help you: Express thoughts and emotions that can be hard to put into words; Lower stress and anxiety; relax and feel calmer; find meaning in life experiences; cope with grief and loss; shift your focus away from pain or stressful thoughts to activities that are soothing, enjoyable and fun and create something unique that gives you a sense of pleasure and accomplishment.
