You may not realize this, especially if you are spending less time out, how important the arts are in your life.

There are performing arts, creative arts, and healing arts that offer support in our lives. If we allow ourselves, we can leverage the various arts in our life for greater health, confidence and even team productivity. You may not realize it but the arts profoundly impact our soul and vitality. Maybe you’ve experienced a time when you put on a performance, did a craft or gave yourself a session with a holistic professional. The positive energy that you feel from participating in these types of activities contribute to your overall well being. It can be transformative and feel quite magical.

On this July 16, 2020 WSA-TV Premier Show episode we feature powerful women leaders who share the magic of the arts and how they impact your well being.

Featuring: Lisa Jean Nielson, Maxine Shapiro & Marina Lando

Our experts share some advice:

Lisa Jean says “Give yourself permission to try out a new art medium you haven’t before – or revisit something you used to find joy and release in from younger years. Make a list of artistic practices or creative activities that you would like to try- quite frankly, YOUR artistic medium doesn’t have to be traditional or look like anyone else’s! Books, podcasts, libraries and museums- these are all great ways to get started!
Think outside the box when it comes to what it means to be an artist and a creative and be cautious as to not compare and criticize your own creations- you are good enough, valid enough and your expression is worth sharing and connecting you to others!”

Maxine shares “I put people through this great exercise- every sentence begins with “What I like about that idea is…” They love it, as they realize how quick they’ve been to shut down other’s ideas and they begin embracing this alternative. I get emails all the time sharing how it’s changing their relationships. Thrilled!”

Marina explains “Emotions are just a different layer of response of your immune system. We experience them not because we are good or bad. These emotions when accepted with compassion can make a positive change in the world.”
