What Are Art Breaks?
Art-Breaks are small moments of creativity, big or small, that enrich our lives. I believe that the act of creating is an important part of self-care. It complements mindfulness to allow for a greater personal connection to the here and now. Creative expression can help you connect more fully with yourself, relieve stress and anxiety, and even help you work through your thoughts and emotions in a healthy and productive way. I invite you to take a break to create!
