I encourage my daughters believe that there is no limit to their "EVENTUAL" power. I, really, try to get them understand that they will Grow and Mature into one the MOST powerful creations under the sun. A Fully "Grown Women". Which is why they must develop the best Character Possible. Which is a daily task that I am here to assist and usher.
The Arts: A Holiday Stress Reliever December 5, 2011
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can leave us stressed, fatigued and even anxious or depressed. But according to studies sponsored by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s Nord-Trondelag Health Study, there are many artful ways to relieve these conditions: Painting, dancing, playing a musical instrument or even attending a theater performance or concert may help us feel better, healthier and more upbeat.
The researchers worked with more than 50,000 participants, using questionnaires, interviews, clinical examinations, and blood and urine samples to assemble detailed health profiles. The data was controlled for chronic illness, social relations, smoking and alcohol.
What most surprised the researchers was that the study findings held true regardless of socioeconomic status; whether a truck driver or bank president, participating in the arts had a positive effect on the individual’s sense of health and well being.
So, if your stressed out this holiday season, dive into the arts and relax!
Peace, love and light to all
