Picture Yourself Resilient

I was reading an article and wanted to share how important ART really is:

Battling stress is an ART- literally.  Painting and drawing improve the brains ability to bounce back under pressure, even if you're no Picasso, according to a study from the University Hospital Erlangen in Germany.  Newly retired adults who blocked off time to paint or draw once a week for 10 weeks demonstrated greater psychological resilience-labspeak for that roll-with-the-punches cool we all dream of having in the face of stress.

Creating visual ART improves the connection between brain regions associated with resilience, likely because it's an activity that calls for integrating cognitive, motor and creative skills, the study authors say.  Pass the paint, please

I would like to add:  Pass the FLOWERS please!
