Did you ever think drawing unique pieces of art could clear the mind of stress, worry and mental clutter? Do you ever think you could create and experience such a thing yourself?
Well now you can with the Zentangle Art Meditation, a Tools for Health, Resilience, Insight, Vitality & Empowerment (THRIVE) program provided by the Student Health and Psychological Counseling Center.
“When you let go, everything else just comes,” said Tess Sheets, the presenter of the Zentangle Art Meditation program.
This is why the Zentangle Art Meditation program works so well for the stressful, high demand of student life. It brings out the inner artist in everyone while having fun and creating a unique piece of art.
“The ability to relax and clear your mind allows the mind to open up and relieve stress that may be clouding judgment. This allows for more concentration, an increase in memory and less stress; which all in turn help students focus and do better in school and life,” said Sheets.
According to Heather Henry, who works for the Student Health and Psychological Counseling Center this program “has done very well for participants so far, that is why next quarter it will be provided again.”
