it’s important to find hobbies, crafts and pastimes that are relaxing and boost your well being. If you’ve always fancied getting arty, now is a great time to do it, and a paint by numbers kit is a brilliant way to start.
According to chartered counselling, mindfulness practices, including colouring, can help to improve mood. Painting is the one of the best creative activities for boosting brain function indoors – working to sharpen the mind through conceptual visualization; people who often use creative mediums like painting and drawing have a decreased chance of developing memory.
The likes of mindfulness art studios such as Master Peace have opened in response to research that showed a link between creativity, and well being. Founder Zena El Farra has now created At Home Art Kits and online tutorials as a way to help people cope, and the effects.
Zena said: “Research has shown that even a small amount of creativity can sustainably boost our mood, help us cope and even the management.”
