Healing in Art and Nature

VIEWING ART IMPROVES OVERALL HEALTH AND WELL BEING 

Setting aside a few hours to stroll through a gallery, or to attend an art exhibit at a museum, has a proven link to good health and life satisfaction. Experiencing art can also help lower anxiety, alleviate depression, and improve critical thinking, delivering positive consequences with significant results for all of us.

The clever healing mechanism of art, regardless of subjectivity of beauty or topic, is that art can engage our brain’s reward system. Simply viewing art can lead to the release of dopamine, a chemical related to feelings of love, pleasure and desire.
