Mental Health Awareness 5 Tools for Better Mental Health Mental Health Awareness Month was first observed in 1949 by the Mental Health America organization and has since grown into a national movement. Observed in May to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and to educate people about mental health issues, The Wellness Universe is supporting wellbeing with a panel of experts and self-care tools. The goal is to promote mental health and well-being, reduce stigma, and encourage people to seek help when needed.
Creativity as a Mental Health Tool
Expressing creativity has a myriad of benefits. Here are some ways creativity supports mental wellness.
Whether you garden, dance, bake, play music, or paint, life is enhanced when you consciously cultivate creativity.
A recent study in Scientific American Magazine shows that creativity exercises specific neural networks in your brain. This keeps your mind active, engaged, and sharp. Hand-eye coordination and memory are boosted when you draw, paint, craft, dance, and play music.
Thinking like an artist broadens your perspective, and seeing things from a higher vantage point is essential for mental wellness. Creativity boosts joy, lifts your mood, grounds you in the present moment, and places you in a flow state. This produces a calming effect on your brain and body.
So, find your own brand of self-expression and get creative!
On May 10th, 2023 Jane spoke at The Wellness Universe 5 Tools for Better Mental Health online event to raise awareness and share tools to help with your mental well-being. Five experts from the US and UK spoke and shared tools for self-care in the 90-minute online event. The clip above was Jane’s contribution to the conversion.
