Painting brings positive energy in our lives
How painting can boost happiness in these gloomy times
Holding a paintbrush in your hand is just like holding a pen or a steering wheel. Here are a few reasons why you should start painting for a blissful living.
Painting gives expression to your hidden thoughts
If you have read some works of Freud and the human mind, then you must know our thoughts come from a very far and dark place. It takes strength to uncover them. Though speech may reveal some aspects of it, other cannot be expressed and remain absolutely unknown to the man though affecting his behaviors in their own ways.
This may appear subjective, but it is real. If you want to know which thoughts are hidden inside of you, you may just start painting anything that comes to your mind. You will see your hidden thoughts coming up one after the other.
And as they start coming out, keep painting, for it will help you liberate yourself from harmful hidden thoughts and get back to a much happier mood.
Painting liberates your mind from tension
In these tough times, when everything becomes difficult, try painting. Not only will it lighten your mind, but it will spark a light in yourself and help you find a way where all seems to be dark.
As an artist, painting infuses light into your mind. It enlivens the corners of your mind by putting a sweet pressure on them. During that pleasant exercise, your brain sweats happily, thereby relieving your consciousness from disturbing thoughts and mental stress.
Painting add colors to your life
Paint what is lacking in your life. You need calmness, paint a serene landscape. You need joy, paint colorful flowers. You need to develop your focus in life, do still life artworks. You want your home to be a happy place to live in, just paint that. In times of gloominess, never paint your feeling. Make a conscious effort to paint the best things in life.
