Artistic & Creative Coping Mechanisms.

Hey there, lovelies. Here are some tips and ideas to get your inner-artist going AND better your mental health (or at least keep it up!):

♥ Print out coloring pages and color your heart out

♥ Draw some Zen Doodles or some plain-old regular doodles

♥ Color those doodles in

♥ Play an instrument or create its silly cardboard cousin (tissue box guitar, anyone?)

♥ Make someone a homemade card (yes, from scratch.)

♥ Pick out some pretty fabrics and sew a pillow/dress/blanket/baby clothes

♥ Knit or Crotchet

♥ Wreak havoc on a blank canvas

♥ Make some jewelry (the Macaroni kind is totally cool, too)

♥ Make an art journal for you to express the bejeebus out of yourself

♥ Pick up an interesting craft kit at a nearby Hobby Lobby, Joanne’s, or Michael’s.

♥ Break out the chalk and decorate your driveway and all of that boring sidewalk

♥ Bake something and use all your might to decorate it

♥ Go to a Paint-n-Party

♥ Glitterize something, damnit!

Anything that I missed? Comment down below if one of your favorite artsy feel-good hobbies are up there, and let me know if it isn’t and what that awesome activity is! Good luck, darlings. Sending you hella positive vibes.

  1. I am creating and crafting so much at work, getting ready for vacation bible school, that I’m too tired to craft for myself when I get home. Oh Well, at least I’m creating.
