We believe that there are ways to relax and release your creative self through art forms. Henna is a relaxing, and calming way to release the stress and negativity in your life. Associated with transformation and transcendence, it is a beautiful and mysterious art form that has been used for centuries to heal, to adorn and to bless.
Activities like painting, sculpting, drawing, and photography are relaxing and rewarding hobbies that can lower your stress levels and leave you feeling mentally clear and calm. Creating art provides a distraction - giving your brain a break from your usual thoughts. The average person has 60,000 thoughts per day and 95% of them are exactly the same day in and day out. When you get totally immersed in a creative endeavor, you may find yourself in what’s known as “the zone” or in a state of “flow.”
