Do you notice that when you do Artist Resin crafts, you become happy? 

Scientists discovered that creativity can really improve your life. It might sound illogical at first but many studies confirmed the positive effects of being creative to a person’s health- both physical and mental.

So how can being creative make you healthy? Let’s look at the benefits of being artistic.

Increases happiness

Do you ever wonder why you completely lose track of time when doing crafts?  It feels like you are so engaged with what you do that you’re completely absorbed into something. Psychologists call this state of mind the “flow”. It lessens anxiety, boosts your mood, and regulates your heartbeat. When you see the end product of your work, your brain releases dopamine which makes you feel happy and motivates you to do more.

Reduces dementia

People suffering from dementia can try art therapy to improve their condition. Studies show that doing repetitive creative motions help dementia patients connect to their own personalities and improve their memories. It makes them feel good about themselves and their surroundings.  

Improves mental health

Your brain can produce 60,000 thoughts per day which can lead to over fatigue and stress. When you do creative projects, it helps calm your mind which is as effective as meditation. Even gardening or sewing can rest your brain from information overload. This is the reason why a person who suffers from trauma can unleash his negative emotions through art, and this experience can help him move on with his life.

Boosts your immune system

Doing artistic projects make people healthy. Studies show that people who write about their experiences daily have a better immune system than those who don’t. Although experts can’t fully explain how it works, they are convinced that writing increases a person’s CD4+ lymphocyte count, a very important component of the immune system. Listening to music can also improve the performance of the immune system.

Makes you smarter

Studies confirm that musicians have better connectivity between their left and right brains. The left brain makes them execute the beat, while the right brain focuses on the melody. When the two sides of the brain synchronize, the musician can create harmonious sounds.

It feels amazing to know that doing the activities you love can make you feel good (that dopamine rush!). So what are you waiting for? Get your resin ready and start making another project again.
