Incorporating Art Therapy

Art is a way to find yourself and lose yourself at the same time. When troubled, we experience the monkey mind, thinking of worst outcomes or replaying past events. A creative pursuit helps stall that process by helping us actively practice mindfulness. There is no wrong brush stroke in art, you simply incorporate that into the painting and create something beautiful out of it. A good philosophy for life too, it seems.

The experience of being an inpatient during this pandemic can be isolating and unnerving. This is a unique period in the history of mankind and we are rallying forces to combat a deadly virus.
