Need Stress Relief? Do Art. Even If You “Can’t Draw.”

Doing art lowers the stress levels of most people, regardless of their level of talent. A few people continue to stress, about 25%, but most had lower cortisol (the stress hormone) levels after doing creative art. The Drexel University study expected that experience would matter, but finger painting works as well as making a Monet.  

So do something nice for yourself. Doodle, sculpt, and be messy!
