Making art has been shown to enable people to take greater responsibility for their own health and wellbeing by helping maintain levels of independence and curiosity and improve the quality of life by bringing greater joy.
A recent study has also shown that looking at and appreciating art can create similar patterns of neuronal activity in the brain as those associated with pleasurable activities such as food and sex. The benefits of this kind of brain activity are that they can have a stress-buffering effect and therefore help stimulate mental resilience.
Tate galleries are the perfect place to get a stress-relieving art fix.
