How can paint by numbers improve wellbeing?
Studies have shown that taking part in a creative pastime is a great way to relax and dial down the stress!
A creative activity for adults such as paint by numbers, is a great way to take your mind off things.
Focusing on your art creation will help to keep you in the present moment and is a perfect mindfulness exercise.
But I’m not artistic!
You don’t have to be!
That’s the beauty of paint by numbers for adults. The artwork is already done for you, you’re simply adding the colour to the canvas. Easy!
What else is great is that the detail of the images make some of the paintings quite a lengthly process.
This will boost the therapeutic factor and give you a great sense of accomplishment when you have completed your masterpiece!
Eco therapy and art
One of the reasons I fell in love with Winnie’s Picks paint by numbers, is the range of nature inspired images that they have to choose from.
My ethos at Gardening Love is my passion for fusing nature with mental health and wellbeing, and what better way to add some eco therapy to your day, than to paint a stunning landscape or nature image?
These beautiful painting are perfect for people who find themselves indoors mainly, for people who are convalescing or those looking for stress relief and a wellbeing boost.
Allowing a connection with the outdoors and a touch of mindfulness at the same time! Perfect!
