Alive4life Garden Projects June 2020
While COVID 19 might have put a stop to lots of things over the past few months, in times of uncertainty and stress there is no better way to spend your time than being creative and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing at alive4live. We have taken the opportunity to transform our garden by creating a beautiful vibrant garden sculpture and wind chime from repurposed and found objects. It’s been a fabulous team effort drawing on the creativity of our staff and clients, we have spent quality time working together soaking up the autumn sun creating our recently installed garden artworks.
In a climate of uncertainty creativity is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. A creative act such as crafting can help focus the mind, and has even been compared to meditation due to its calming effects on the brain and body. Creative pursuits such gardening, sewing, painting and drawing releases dopamine, a natural antidepressant.
Working on group projects has a number of positive benefits, working collectively provides an opportunity for sharing skills while problem solving and the sharing of a creative experience strengthens relationships. As a group participants encourage each other and celebrate the success of their achievements.
Come and enjoy our garden or join us at alive4life for our next creative project.
