I've been trying to sooth my anxiety with my art. But it's not working. Any suggestions?

      Have you heard of comfortsonas? They're OCs that are comforting to you. You draw them when you're struggling so that they can help bring you comfort!

        @Eren2273 To make a comfortsona, all you have to do is choose something or multiple things that are comforting to you. It could be a puppy, a stuffed animal, etc

      I suggest finding a comfort object like a stuffed animal to hold while you feel anxious. It sounded dumb to me at first but it can be rly comforting

      I've never been good at painting, but I love to write, especially poetry. It really soothes me and helps me get my bad feelings out.

        @Halcon that's good. You can do that too. Whatever helps.

      What kind of medium do you use? Did you try to listen to soothing music while doing your art?

        @pinky3 I sit here and sometimes paint. I listen to music alot. It's the only other comfort I have.

          @Lemontart I love to paint. What kind of paint do you use? Music with paint helps.
