Today, I was asked why do you keep drawing pastel art. I was surprised because I was never thinking about that. At that time, I said I draw for my mental health.
Usually, people work hard every day. When you are busy, you forgot to take a rest and lost the way to feel comfortable. I usually use a phone and watch Facebook, Twitter, and so on. But is it perfect for your health? your brain really take a rest? I think No. When You need a rest, you have to get off your phone. However, nobody does that.
So what should I do? I choose pastel art.
When I draw, I do not think about my job, my money, and so on. I do not have to worry. It is like a meditation. And more, it is fun to draw. Every day, I found something new. I learn more, and if you keep up drawing for more than 1 month, you can find you had great progress. It grows your self-confidence, and you will enter a good cycle.
Even if you do not like drawing, you can choose to play the piano, write a poem, dancing, and so on. Anything is ok if you feel better.
When you can not find anything, remember your childhood. What did you like? What you usually do? Actually, when I was a kid, I draw pictures every day.
So if you feel tired because of your job, please start something you feel comfortable with. Maybe it is better to choose which you can remove your phone. Focus on the paper, your body. Be healthier with what you like.
