Look After Your Mental Wellbeing Through Art

Look After Your Mental Wellbeing Through Art

Here is the UK we are going through our third lockdown and we just don’t know when we will get our lives back. It’s hard to know what to do to keep our mental wellbeing in check.

For me, art is a way to relax my mind and unwind from the stress of my day.

I think of art as drawing, painting, sculpture or photography and I love to create my own art, but I also like to see the creations of other artists. It inspires me, it gives me ideas and it makes me happy.

Last year I started painting by numbers and it is so addictive! I can’t stop! As soon as I finish one, I start another. I have completed 5 paintings so far. I find myself totally in the flow where I think of nothing except what I am doing. If you want to relax and take a break from your routine, I thoroughly recommend it!

My first painting.. Amsterdam..

A rainy night street scene and Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers..

Dolphins surfing..
