Here’s more #MondayMotivation for your creativity: Making art can actually relieve stress.

As Sketchbook Skool co-founder Danny Gregory wrote in this article on 10 ways drawing can reduce stress for MindBodyGreen, making art is a great way to reduce stress levels. Additionally, sketching, crafting, or any kind of creative endeavor, reconnects you with a sense of wonder. That can be a real balm for the spirit.

As anyone who has read Danny’s books Everyday Matters and A Kiss Before You Go knows, he’s an expert on how making art can heal. In good times and bad, your creativity is your greatest asset for living your fullest life.

Sketchbook Skool offers online art klasses to fire up your creative spirit. Check them out here.
