Feeling Anxious or Depressed. Go to an Art Exhibition
Strolling around the Venice Biennale not long ago I observed how calm people were. They were moving slowly and rhythmically, speaking quietly or not at all, gazing intently at the work on show. Sure they may have been slightly soporific due to 30+ degree temperatures but I am certain that there is something more powerful at work here and research on the well-being benefits of art supports this.
