One of the reasons that clinical art therapy is effective is that the act of drawing and creating art can help you relieve stress in many ways. Just the act of having a hobby can make you feel more balanced in your lifestyle. Sometimes, with all of life’s responsibilities, we forget that we need and deserve ‘down time’ and self-care. Taking even a few minutes on a regular basis to devote to a hobby can give you more of what you need in this area.
