Arts and The Mind

Dancing Heart program at the Deer Crest Assisted Living in Red Wing, Minnesota.

Art, in all forms, is a magical elixir. Alzheimer’s researchers call it a powerful tool to ward off dementia. Troubled teens use it to find meaning in the world around them—and in themselves often transporting them from painful realities to brighter places. It offers measurable healing to both chronically ill toddlers and veterans battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“Art plays a vital role in human development during both youth and older age, and shares stories and cutting edge scientific research on how music, dance, painting, poetry and theater markedly improve well-being at both ends of life.” – PBS

Science and Art come together to show a fundamental relationship which leads to vitality and wellness throughout our lifetimes. Practicing art instills the habit in people to try something new and to stretch their awareness of their own potential. In any situation, being able to find unique and unconventional solutions to life’s challenges is invaluable to living a life with unlimited options.

Be proactive when it comes to enriching your life by watching and participating in creative endeavors. Learn more from the enlightening documentary by PBS called Arts & the Mind-The Art of Connection
