Paint Your Way Through Stress

We live a in fast paced world. We overschedule ourselves for events and activities and move through our tasks list at rocket speed, but is this the best way to live well?

A recent study from Drexel University examined the effects of making art on stress-related hormones in your body. The study experts found that 45 minutes of creative activity significantly lessens stress in the body, regardless of artistic experience or talent. Take a look at the entire article here. 

Lucky enough for you, our library and the libraries with our county system offer a variety of artsy programs that will help you de-stress!
