I continue to sketch on daily basis so I was interested in this article on Ten Ways Drawing Can Relieve Stress & Inspire Wonder written by artist, Danny Gregory. I discovered the post on the mindbodygreen site. Here are a few of the points that caught my interest. Daily sketching can help you:
- Control Time. "Making art stops time. When you draw or paint what's around you, you focus and see life for what it is.......Instead of all the things buzzing in your head, you will be able to stop - to clear your mind - to take a deep breath - and just be."
- Create Memories. "When you draw, you enhance your memory. By slowing down and observing carefully, you create deeper and more vivid records of everything that surrounds you in life."
- Banish Boredom. "You will never be bored or waste time again. Every day is full of mundane moments between activities. Waiting in the doctor's office, watching mindless TV. Instead of reading tweets on your phone, you'll be creating a piece of art. Every minute of your day counts."
