Meditation and yoga are great ways to relax and clear your mind, but sometimes you want to try something new and flex some different mental muscles. Here are 4 ways to clear your mind while getting creative at the same time:
I have absolutely no artistic talent, but I still find painting to be really relaxing. There’s just something about spreading paint on a canvas that forces you to slow down. A similar feeling can probably come from drawing or sketching, but I think there’s something about paint and it’s semi-permanence. Once it’s there, it’s there. You can cover it up later, but there’s no erase or undo button. Learning to literally let go of your mistakes in that way is oddly liberating. It’s not about creating something beautiful, it’s about the process of creating it.
