    How Art Can Improve Your Happiness And Health

    Africa has the best art characteristics in the world but most of the people of the region do not embrace the benefits accrued to this culture.


    Speaking with experience, here in Nigeria only a few is benefiting from this and is appalling that most people who live in a better environment have no element of art or practice the habit of exhibiting some art creativity to improve their health.


    Or maybe they do not understand the importance of this. Art in this aspect ranges from music and writing to dance and the visual arts.


    Delving little to what the American Journal of public health published in 2010 which captioned: “The Connection between Art, Healing, and Public Health.”


    In that publication, researchers went ahead to analyze more than 100 studies about the impact of art on your health and your ability to heal yourself. The studies included everything from music and writing to dance and the visual arts.

    Let us illustrate with example the findings from five visual arts studies mentioned in that review. Remember, visual art should include; painting, drawing, photography, pottery, and textiles.


    Among these five visual art studies, each study examined more than 30 patients who were battling chronic illness and cancer.


    Below is how the researchers described the effect the art activities had on each and every patient:


    1. Art went ahead to fill their occupational voids, this helped in distracting the thought of illness.

    2. Their well-being improved because, art helped in decreasing their negative emotions and increase positive ones in replacement.


    3. The medical outcome was drastically improved.

    4. The level of stress and anxiety went down easily and this improved their emotion positively.

    5. There was good improve in social networks, flow and spontaneity as resulted in signs like grief and positive identity.


    Do you think that the benefits listed above could be only observed by patients in the hospital? Well, I do not know about you but all I know is the above benefits are not just for hospitalized patients only but for each and every one of us who wants to improve in their health and healthy habits.

    Going further in this I would like to bring to your understanding that the benefits of art is not only in the head, the impact should go along way noticed in your physical body.

    In fact, the impact of art, music, and writing should be seen in your physical body as well. This study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Medicine which used writing as a treatment for HIV patients found that writing resulted in “improvements of CD4+ lymphocyte counts.”

    This can be explained as being that “the act of writing actually impacted the cells and improved their immune system.”

    Without much doubt, we all can testify that the presence of art makes you real, and create conducive physical changes inside your body. Anybody who has experienced the presence of art could testify for this.

    CREATE MORE ART THAN YOU CAN CONSUME
    Art is not only good to your body both mental and physical but is essential that you try to create some element of art near you each and every time in your environment.

    Try always to express yourself in a tangible way and share something with the world. This is what I do as an enliven habit and I encourage you to muster courage and do likewise.

    In our recent world of electronics triggers of which you sometimes do not call for, now calls for an out-let in which to release yourself from shackles of social media and internet struggles. And I think art offers an outlet and a release from all of that.

    I advise you should take a minute to ignore all of the incoming signals and create an outgoing one instead. You should know that producing something will help you to express yourself in some way. As long as you contribute rather than consume, anything you do can be a work of art.

    Then, open-up a blank document and start typing. Try to put pen to paper and sketch a drawing. Also grab your camera and take a picture. Turn up the music and dance. Start a conversation now! And make it a good one dear friend.

    So, you should start now to build something, share and craft something, and our health will be better for it when we make more art.
