Stressed Out? Anxious? Add Some Art Therapy to Your Self-Care Tool Kit

When you feel anxious or sad, remember to take care of yourself. You can start with the basics of getting enough sleep, eating right and exercising. You can also write in a journal, watch something funny or hang out with friends. But have you ever thought about trying art therapy? To put it simply, art therapy is using creativity to express yourself and then looking at the art for clues about what you’re feeling.  And, you can do it right at home.

Watch our video to see ways you can incorporate art therapy into your life, whether it’s through drawing and painting, working with modeling clay or creating a collage from materials you already have. Try it!
