Hi all! Hope your day's been well. I'm just putting this question out the community. Are there any books, paintings, shows, characters--basically any specific kind of art--that you've discovered is helping you through anxiety? For me, and very surprisingly, it's been anime. I've found learning about this new form of entertainment has helped give me some creative focus outside of myself, and specifically the "slice of life" genre shows deal heavily with relationships and psychological issues. It's been very therapeutic for me to dive into an unexplored art form. Does anyone else out there have similar experiences with "finding" a new art to help you through anxiety? I'd love to hear your stories and any recommendations. Maybe if we all share some art that's stirred us into feeling better, we can all find even more to help us. For anime so far, I'd recommend the film "The Garden of Words" and the show "Kids on the Slope." Beautiful animation and lovely messages about friendship, love, and connection. Thanks for reading, and here's to sharing our Recovery Art :)
