Taking care of yourselves does NOT need to be difficult. We know what you’re thinking… self-care is just another task to add to my overloaded schedule. Right?! So why not incorporate something that’s fun AND good for your health like the expressive arts?!! The expressive arts assist in Mindful Decontamination and involve absolutely anything creative or expressive. We can express ourselves creatively through cooking, gardening, woodworking, painting, dancing, drawing, writing, metalsmithing, forging, music, knitting, mixed media, photography,… ANYTHING creative can be incorporated into your wellness routine so include friends, co-workers, or family members to share in the fun!! 

The actual act of creating stimulates a theta brain wave which is comparable to the brain state during yoga, meditation, prayer, and daydreaming.  In fact, the World Health Organization reviewed over 3,000 studies concluding that the creative arts play a major role in the prevention of ill health, the promotion of health, and management and treatment of illness across the lifespan. Incorporate anything creative into your routine to consciously decrease cumulative stress.
