Implementing small changes daily in your way of thinking, accepting, believing and doing can have a profound ripple effect on your body, mind and life balance; improving well-being. This wellness retreat experience will help get you started on holistic self-care strategies for a healthier you. Your body and mind can heal itself – with some guidance. Your body is already created with many amazing abilities to heal. I share my holistic ‘stop, start and change’ protocol that has helped many of my clients as well as me to recover from multiple health challenges. Follow my road map for improved health! I will help you navigate your journey!

#12 – Creative Art Therapy to Change/Heal Your Brain

According to the Huffington Post article, creative artwork is good for your brain.

“In a journal article titled, “How Art Changes Your Brain,” participants in a 10-week art course (a two hour session, one day per week) showed enhanced connectivity of the brain at a resting state known as the “default mode network” (DMN). The DMN influences mental processes such as introspection, memory, and empathy. Engaging in art also strengthens the neural pathway that controls attention and focus.

Whether it’s creating mosaics, jewelry, pottery, painting, or drawing, the combination of motor and cognitive processing will promote better brain connectivity. Join a local art class; just once a week will help your brain grow.”

According to Psychology Today, “There is a whole field of research known as “haptics,” which includes the interactions of touch, hand movements, and brain function.[5]”  Writing cursive and hand drawing provide brain benefits.

Add creative art therapy rock painting to your retreat weekend.  Below are some samples designs to choose from.
