Creating Art to Fight Depression

For the past 6 months, I have been working hard on creating this website and some of the images that will be posted here. The work has the added benefit of keeping me occupied for a significant part of the day. Without having my own work, I would probably be clinically depressed. Since leaving the workforce, I have had what some would describe as a life changing experience. I call it "wearing out of the body".

The best way I found to cope with pain and depression is to stay busy with something you enjoy. For me it is learning new things, creating this website was a learning experience. I also tend to work on my psychedelic images when I feel a bit depressed, as it brings me back to the era in which I was the most happy! Happiness is a state of mind we create for ourselves.

One thought on “Creating Art to Fight Depression

  1. I have seen that these days, more and more people are now being attracted to surveillance cameras and the field of photography. However, being a photographer, you will need to first expend so much time deciding the exact model of photographic camera to buy and also moving store to store just so you can buy the least expensive camera of the brand you have decided to select. But it would not end generally there. You also have to consider whether you should obtain a digital digicam extended warranty. Thanks a lot for the good points I gathered from your web site.
