The form of art therapy that helps me reduce my stress is photography. The way that photography helps to reduce my stress is that it distracts me from the loads of school work I have waiting for me back home. It also makes me bring out the creative side of myself and adding to that it lets me express want I am feeling into a picture. Photography is most fun when you have your friends with you exploring the different kinds of neighborhoods around the city. I personally like taking pictures at night when there aren’t much people in the streets and you are able to do whatever you want. Seeing the city during the night from afar is very beautiful and soothing.

Art therapy can be any form of art like painting, collaging, digital art, photography and textile. I recommend to find the form of art that helps you reduce your stress cause forgetting about something is way better than sticking with the feeling of stress. Buy a coloring book or play around with photoshop, anything that makes you use your creative side will most definitely help you reduce your stress.
