The Arts CAN keep you healthy!
The latest research shows that: the arts can keep you healthy. Creative activities like painting, writing, pottery, drama, singing, and storytelling raise self-esteem, increase enthusiasm for life, and result in fewer doctor visits, says Gene D. Cohen, M.D., Ph.D., of George Washington University’s Center on Aging, Health and Humanities at the George Washington University Medical Center. Cohen's ongoing study at GWU's Center on Aging, Health and Humanities of approximately 300 men and women tracked several arts programs around the country. The arts participants, whose average age is 80, scheduled fewer doctor appointments and used fewer medications than members of the control group (who are not involved in the arts). They also have fewer incidents of depression, higher morale, and more involvement in outside activities. Be sure to include art as part of your health plan for living a fuller, healthier life!
