I know, (I really do know!), there is no way you have an extra two hours a week to do something creative. However, hear me out. First of all, the two hours do not need to happen all at the same time. Second, I’m not necessarily talking about the act of picking up a brush or guitar. If you consume art rather than create it, the benefits of doing so are still in effect.
There are two ways to engage in the arts to get this benefit. The first is to take action by writing, painting, piano playing, etc. You can also enjoy the arts by attending a concert or performance. Yes, even making a playlist on Spotify or iTunes counts.
Do the math…in as little as 15 minutes a day, you can increase your happiness, confidence and self-esteem as well as lower your stress and enhance your health. This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, Just Do It!
