We found this beautiful painting by artist Lynn Tribe on Facebook, which inspired today’s blog post! Take a moment to take this painting in; what do you notice? What colours are used? What emotions do the various details invoke?

Engaging in art can be a calming and meditative experience that helps to reduce stress and promote relaxation. This can have a positive impact on your mental and physical well-being. This is just one case of art and its effect on health.

Here are a few more reasons why with thinking you should consider exploring the world of art:

  • Art encourages creativity and helps to develop your imagination. It can inspire you to think outside the box and develop innovative ideas.
