Benefits of Drawing Everyday – ART

There is so much art in the world, everywhere that you look. Gardens, trees, buildings, and even how people dress is art.

I am sure that when you were a child you would have done art in school, and had a go at colouring books. Expressing ourselves is so important, as it is part of our identity.

I have always loved drawing, and painting particularly. I get so much joy out of being able to bring my ideas to life on paper.

Drawing everyday is very important to me. Even just scribbling on paper can help relax the mind.

Here are some benefits of drawing

1. Improves communication

When you draw, it becomes a way of self-expression. In doing so you develop skills that help you to get messages across from expressing your ideas. Also when you draw something, and someone views your drawing, they will ask you questions, which allows you to reply with your answers.

2. Can relieve stress

Drawing can help release stress. When you draw, your mind tends to wonder, and relaxes. I find each time when drawing, my mind drifts away and I feel at ease. It is good therapy for the brain as drawing is fun. It is an activity where you do not feel pressured, and can be a good thing to do to get your mind off work or any other challenges that you may be facing.

3. Can help improve your memory

Improving memory is a great benefit from drawing. As you draw, you focus on the idea of what you are drawing, which improves your memory. For example, let’s say you are drawing a vase that has flower and triangle patterns on it; as you draw it, your mind will remember each of the details that are featured on the vase. You will be surprised at the tiniest details that your brain will memorise, and will notice growing positive changes the more often you draw.

4. Creates positivity in your life

Being able to create something from your mind, then bring it to life on paper, really does feel good. You will feel positive each time you draw something, as it is a sense of achievement. Drawing makes your mind more positive, and really does make you happy.

5. Develop artist skills

Drawing everyday will always bring you a step closer to developing advance artist skills. Everyone starts as a beginner and can become a professional artist. All it is, is practice. The more you practice a skill, the better you will become at it.

Art is such an important part of my life. On busy days I dedicate at least ten minutes to drawing something new. I love to be creative, my day can include a combination of: painting, makeup, writing, gardening, or even baking. As long as I am creating I find myself to be happier, and more positive.

Creating can also help with personal growth, as when you have an idea, then develop them, and bring them to life, it will help you grow into a better version of yourself. We all want to be the best version of ourselves, so we need to keep practising our skills, in order to master them.

Thank you so much for reading, and please dedicate even just ten minutes a day to creating something you love. Doing so will allow you to express yourself. Have a beautiful day!

  1. Nice drawing! I used to think I’m good at drawing too, until I saw my brother’s artworks (or drawings). The difference in quality is huge enough to make me think what my talent is during that time. 😁

  2. Artists are typically extra sensitive about their lifestyle and interests, and I imagine you are to some degree the same as that, although you are clearly brave enough to present yourself on WordPress, however dedicated you are to your art. It is a challenge and an outlet, and, of course, many people enjoy being part of WordPress, yourself included. I have picked up a few points of style by reading your blog, and I feel reassured that an artist like yourself can see the value in how I’ve handled my blog, and the praise I gleaned from you I keep with me, because life is thoroughly competitive, and that is the nature of the beast.

    1. Yes you are right 🙂 🙂 Artist can be shy about sharing things ❤ ❤ Thank you very much. Yes, I really do enjoy WordPress, blogging is great, and a nice way to interact with other people. Aww that makes me so happy to hear that. Yes life can get competitive. I always find it best to remind myself to not compare myself with others, and just be the best version of myself (so I only compete with the person I was yesterday). We can only control our own situations so it is good to go for want we want in life x x

    1. Thats so cool 🙂 🙂 I’ve always loved drawing anime characters since I was about 12 years old (my Art and Graphics teacher in school would always think anime drawings were a waste of time and not worth it, they were so wrong haha). I love anime and manga so much, they inspire me alot ❤ ❤ Thank you very much. Do you still draw other things? x x
