Research has shown that engaging in creative artistic expression, including expressive writing, visual arts, music, engagement and movement-based creative expression can have many positive impacts on health. Creative expression can improve mood, reduce chronic pain, and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Some studies also show relationships between creative expression and improved healing time and reduced risk of chronic disease.
