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. Working on art and the website 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 creating photographic art and 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. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
