Health Benefits of the Arts
Staying involved with the arts can be beneficial in a variety of ways. Many of our members find the artistic experience to be relaxing and enjoyable. Creating a new piece of art is a great way to escape from the stresses of everyday life, and focus on something beautiful.
Art is an intellectually stimulating process. It can be challenging, and forces the brain to work in creative ways that are different from the everyday processes. This type of stimulation can help keep seniors alert and focused during all other aspects of life.
Self expression and emotional well-being are especially important during the retirement years. Art allows seniors the opportunity to express themselves in a variety of ways. Some studies show that participation in the arts is linked to a decrease in feelings of depression and improves self-esteem.
