Here’s how… Frazzled?  Blue? Pick up a paintbrush (or a knitting needle) to feel better fast! Studies prove that simply drawing, writing, or singing is enough to ease problems like stress, depression and even pain and illness!  “Being creative triggers positive biochemical changes in the brain,” says Eric Maisel, Ph.D., author of The Creativity Book.  And you don’t have to be Picasso or Pavarotti to benefit.  Just expressing yourself through any creative outlet will give you the feel-good results!
