Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders. They affect 18% of adults in the United States in any given year, with a lifetime prevalence of 29% of all Americans (National Institute of Mental Health). Nearly all people experience anxiety at times, such as prior to public speaking or taking an exam. An anxiety disorder is more than just a temporary feeling. It is relatively long-lasting, can get worse over time, and significantly interferes with a person’s daily activities.

Art has played a large part in my own way of handling anxiety. The source of my anxious moments are those I feel I have little to no control over a situation but see it going badly. I dive into art when that happens because I can completely control the outcome of my project. This is slightly less crazy looking than when go to a store to buy something and discover I have spent an hour facing products.
Comment what tricks you use to gain control and stay afloat.
Thank you for taking the time to follow me. You are what keep starving artist eating. Even if you never buy a drop of paint from me...Just knowing people think they are worth looking at is pretty cool.
