Making Art Helps Our Brain

Whether it’s simply doodling on your notepads, or creating elaborate drawings or paintings, creative work helps us to be healthy and connected to the world. There’s the feeling of elation and a burst of creativity every time we try to create anything, regardless of form. NPR has more details:  

"Anything that engages your creative mind — the ability to make connections between unrelated things and imagine new ways to communicate — is good for you," says Girija Kaimal. She is a professor at Drexel University and a researcher in art therapy, leading art sessions with members of the military suffering from traumatic brain injury and caregivers of cancer patients.
