Mental Health and Creativity

June 26, 2023

Engaging in creative activities is not only enjoyable, but it can also have a positive impact on mental health. Creativity is a personal journey, and the most important thing is to engage in activities that bring you joy and promote good mental health.

One example of a creative activity is relaxing and coloring in some Mandalas. In the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, mandalas are an object of meditation to aid in one’s spiritual development. Mandalas are traditionally used in many Eastern spiritual traditions as a tool to aid meditation. In Western culture, Mandalas are often used as a form of stress relief, a tool for art therapy, and as a meditative exercise.
