Art And Motherhood – How Art Acts As A Stress-Buster For Mothers

In today’s time, our schedules have become hectic to a level where we do not have time for ourselves. Mothers, especially, are juggling between handling the house, the children, and their work. Hectic lifestyles leave them with insufficient time for themselves.

In such a situation, how about letting art step into your life? It is scientifically proven that art helps you reduce anxiety, depression, releases stress, and help you align your thoughts. You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy art. Just go with the flow.

Here are some major reasons for how art helps mothers rejuvenate and take a break from their daily chores:

  1. Enhances creativity:

Creativity should never be restrained. It does not have a path to be followed. Let loose and splash all the colours out there. A free environment will enhance your creativity and encourage you to inculcate art in your everyday lives.

If you’re confused about where to start from, seek inspiration from fellow artists. For starters, you can try your hands on abstract art. Choose a proper theme or a colour combination and splash your thoughts on the canvas. If you’re more into making designs, try drawing Mandala art. Mandala art gives you a deeper spiritual symbolism for observing the mechanisms of nature and helps you align your thought process. These intricate designs will also help you improve your creativity, provided you are consistent with it.

  1. Rejuvenates mind and body:

When your body experiences fatigue and tiredness, it isn’t just physical but mental weariness. This can be due to various reasons such as – work pressure, meeting targets and deadlines, household chores, taking care of the kids, et cetera. Art – painting, drawing, sketching acts as a stress reliever and refreshes mind and increases the blood flow to your brain, making the body feel more relaxed.

  1. Improves concentration level:

When you focus on something that you truly enjoy, you will voluntarily put in extra efforts to excel at it with every passing day. This indirectly helps in increasing the concentration level, resulting in better performance in every field.

  1. Avoids negative thoughts:

When you focus on something that you truly enjoy, you will voluntarily put in extra efforts to excel at it with every passing day. This indirectly helps in increasing the concentration level, resulting in better performance in every field.

If you face a creative block, start drawing or sketching anything that comes to your mind. Like a Mandala art or something abstract. Mandala art helps you increase your concentration level as it needs attention to details.

  1. Bring out the inner child in you:

No matter how old we grow, we will always have a child within us hidden somewhere. Picking up hobbies that truly made us happy is much needed in a stressful and hectic lifestyle. This won’t just act as a stress-buster, but break the monotonous routine and leave you rejuvenated and charged up.

Take out your canvas or a mere piece of paper and splash your thoughts on it. This Mother’s day, promise yourself to spend some more ‘Me time’ and make sure to inculcate art in your everyday lives. Here’s wishing all you wonderful mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day.
