Most people if not all deal with mental or emotional struggles at one time or another in life. Whether its stress from work, situational depression, anxiety or full-on mental illness, it helps to spend some time to refocus and gain perspective. One effective tool of making all this happen is a good quality camera or simply that smartphone that is just right in your pocket.
It’s a proven fact that creativity and art therapy are valuable tools for emotional wellness. You don’t need a teacher to learn how to take photos. However, you can perfect this talent as you enjoy relieving yourself from depression. Today, modern technology provides easy-to-use options including automatic modes on point shoot cameras, digital single-lens reflex cameras and even camera phones. Taking photo allows you to look at the world in a different perspective. It enables you appreciate the wonders of mother nature and changes your day from a negative to positive. To some, it’s the time to usher in a moment of calm.
