How Art Can Increase Your Positivity

Hello everyone it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to the blog! For today’s post, I’m going to be doing a positivity post – which for some reason I feel like I haven’t written in a while! This post will be discussing how art can help increase positivity and wellbeing. Let’s jump into it!

It Can Relive Stress

Whether it’s scribbles or splattering paint, creating art relives stress as you’re putting all your emotions onto paper and they aren’t inside you anymore! If you don’t believe me, there’s an article linked here saying that during 45 minutes of art, 75% of participants cortisol (stress hormones) levels lowered!

It Gives You Something To Channel Your Energy Into

A lot of people feel unmotivated because they might not feel good at something or not have something to do. Well, whether you’re good at art or not, it can become your hobby and it really allows you to be able to do something fun and to help your motivation too!

It Adds More Creativity To Your Surroundings

We all need to spice up our room decor every now and again – art is the perfect opportunity to fulfil that desire! The best part is, it doesn’t even matter how your art looks because it’s such a unique thing for everyone.


Thank you so much for reading this post – I tried to keep it simple so it would be easier to read and you can spend more time actually doing the art! I personally also lov9e looking at Art too – and there are so many creators these days, I’m linking my favourite underrated artist on Tiktok (@artby_zahra) whose a self taught artist with original content which you should definitely check out (this post is actually a collaboration with her!) Let me know in the comments your favourite artists!

    Absolutely agree! Art is such a cathartic experience and like you said, it is incredibly stress relieving. I especially love using colour pencils – it feels so nice to go with gentle strokes and see the colour take form. Lovely write!
