Art is a word that simply means “a form of expression” that produces a perceptual or emotional response. Art is not just limited to paintings, but can include any other forms of creative expression such as photographs, poetry, architecture, music, film and theatre. Art enables us to reflect on our environment and the world around us.
The art of the beach is no different. It allows you to take in your surrounding environment while relaxing in the sun. Beach art is a new way to chill out, destress and clear one’s mind. In fact, it is said to be an antidote to the daily grind. It may just be the thing you need during your holiday in Langkawi after being in the city for a long period of time.
Beach art rouses your creativity
Tapping into your creative side can be a lot of fun. Beach art is a perfect way to relax and get in touch with your artistic side while at the same time feeling the benefits of the fresh air and exercise.
Beach art instantly upsets your daily grind
Art has been known to be a good stress reliever. However, the beach art trend is taking it to a whole new level.
It is replacing the regular seascape and sunsets and adding color and vibrancy to the regular serene beach scene, leaving you with nothing but pure relaxation.
Beach art allows you to slow down, enjoy life authentically and savour the moment
On a daily basis we are bombarded with stress and the feeling of over-stimulation. This is largely caused by the fast-paced lifestyles we lead in the cities. A lot of us enjoy our jobs, however it is possible to be stressed out despite genuine satisfaction with your employment.
By de-stressing through art, you can take back control of your life and feel like yourself again.
It allows you to go back to basics
We live in a fast-paced world of constant movement, overstimulation and noise. If you’re not careful, you’ll find yourself stuck inside your head with no way out. This is especially true if you spend most of your time working in an office or at home, where there’s very little space to fill with anything that’s not work-related. When this happens, it becomes difficult to remember what it feels like to be truly present.
A beach is the perfect solution for this kind of mental exhaustion. It allows you to go back to basics by letting you reconnect with nature. Here are some ways that beach art can help you improve your life:
It is meditation, in another form
Painting on the beach is a very meditative experience. There is no “art world” or art critics in the midst of nature. You are in the moment, in the zone, in flow, creating something beautiful and real. I can’t think of anything more therapeutic than this.
Clients often tell me they’re nervous about being out of their comfort zone. They are worried that their artistic skills are not up to scratch or that they have nothing creative to say. Or they are concerned that they don’t have enough time during their holiday to devote to this kind of fun project.
The truth is that if you want to do something different with your vacation, you don’t need to be an expert or have loads of free time. All you need is a willingness to try something new and let it take you where it wants to go. Once you get started with such fun experiences, I promise you will wonder why you didn’t start sooner!
What we call life is nothing more than a series of experiences. So why not experience something that makes you happy and will help you appreciate life? If you’re looking for an easy and inexpensive way to relax, then beach art may just be what you need.
