How Can Creativity Improve Mental Health?

Creativity can improve mental health in several unique ways. Studies show that creative activityβ€”through music, visual arts, dance and beyondβ€”has a positive effect on brain health, cognitive function and emotional well-being. Creative expression can improve symptoms and responses to various mental health challenges, from anxiety to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

By having a positive impact on the symptoms that come with co-occurring disorders of substance use and mental health, art therapy offers relief to veterans and civilians alike. Researchers recently wrote in the Journal of Military and Veterans' Health that "art therapy is designed to help participants bridge their memories of past traumatic events to understand and communicate their traumatic experience."

Particularly in the treatment of PTSD, art therapy provides a canvas for a person to explore their thoughts and feelings in an impactful and safe way.

π’…π’π’ˆ π’…π’‚π’šπ’” (𝒏𝒐𝒖𝒏)
: the hottest time of the year (Merriam-Webster)

π‘«π’π’ˆ π’…π’‚π’šπ’” is a plural noun that refers to the hottest time of the year, which in the northern hemisphere is usually between early July and early September. π‘«π’π’ˆ π’…π’‚π’šπ’” can also refer to a period of stagnation or inactivity suggestive of hot, sultry weather when it can be difficult to summon the energy required for hard work.

If you are curious how dogs got singled out in this expression, you might say it was in the stars. The dog in π’…π’π’ˆ π’…π’‚π’šπ’” is the Dog Star, aka Sirius, the star that represents the hound of the hunter Orion in the eponymous constellation. The star has long been associated with sultry weather in the northern hemisphere because it rises simultaneously with the sun during the hottest days of summer.

β€œSirius rises late in the dark, liquid sky
On summer nights, star of stars,
Orion’s Dog they call it, brightest
Of all, but an evil portent, bringing heat
And fevers to suffering humanity.”
β€” Homer, The Iliad (c. 8th century BC)

cups from the Victorian era (1837-1901) in the United Kingdom were devices that sat inside the cup and allowed one to drink from it while keeping their mustache dry. They were invented in the 1860s by British potter Harvey Adams. Mustaches were incredibly popular during the Victorian era, to the extent that the British military mandated all its soldiers to grow one from 1860 to 1916. These soldiers would often apply mustache wax to keep their facial hairs tidy and in place. However, drinking hot liquids such as tea or coffee would often cause the wax to melt, resulting in it slowly dripping into the cup. Mustache stains were also a significant concern for coffee/tea drinkers during this time.

In the 1860 book "Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette and Manual of Politeness," it was declared that mustaches must "never be curled, nor pulled out to an absurd length. Still worse is it to cut them close with the scissors. The mustache should be neat and not too large."

French writer Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) once said, "A man without a mustache is no longer a man" and noted that their kisses "have no flavor, none whatever!"

Starting in World War 1, soldiers began to shave their mustaches instead of trying to groom them while living in the trenches. Production for these cups continued to decline after the war as mustaches began to go out of fashion.
