The hospital can be a pretty challenging place.  So on my relatively frequent visits, I've decided to take along my paints and canvases.  I choose a color palette and paint!  Whether you knit, sew, draw, write, make jewelry, engaging in a creative process when your sick is remarkably theraputic.  In my case, when I would paint, my blood pressure dropped. My oxygen saturation improved.  My heart rate went down.  So go make something!  It's good for the body, the soul and your walls <3
