RSS Arts Studio - Writing

Writing and reading the writings of others is good for the head, heart and soul. And, it's also been proven to have a number of health benefits. Expressive writing has been linked with improved mood, well-being, lowered stress levels and depressive symptoms. It's also been known to help lower blood pressure and even reduce time spent in hospitalization. You don't even have to physically do the writing. Sharing your stories with others is an important form of communication as well.
