Top 10 Ways to Beat Anxiety
Ok so art and creativity are definitely my number two when it comes to my list of top 10 ways to beat anxiety!
When was the last time you were truly creative? Living in the 21st century is hard and life seems to be so fast these days. Do you remember a time when you actually just sat back, put your feet up and did something just for the hell of it? We seem to be living in a world where there is no room for downtime, or doing the enjoyable things in life…heck what about the mortgage, the kids, paying the bills and so on…it never really ends! Is there any wonder that so many of us are stressed, anxious or depressed?
Well one of my go to remedies for anxiety is art and I absolutely love to draw! You see I started drawing as a means to concentrate on something other than the negative intrusive thoughts that would whirl round in my head, day in day out, and do you know? It worked!
I spent so long trying to perfect my drawing technique that the thoughts that had been bogging me down for so long seemed to just vanish without a trace! I even tried crafting and I think we all have noticed the surge in crafts with the rise of Etsy where you can buy crafts and sell your own goods too!
Maybe you could come up with your own top 10 ways to beat anxiety and I urge you to start exploring just what works for you! Until then, try a bit of creativity in your life! You never know you might find it works for you!
