Why is abstract art good for the brain?
Abstract photos might not seem like an answer to stress, but this type of art opens your imagination. Creativity lends you a hand in reframing problems and finding solutions. For example, if anxiety escalates, abstract art diverts that spiral of negativity. It literally can give you a handle on changing your mood.
By taking a few moments to center yourself, you let go of focusing on good or bad emotions. They aren’t the issue. Instead, what’s essential is exploring your reactions to those emotions. Emotions are just a compass. Where you head is a choice.
Abstract photography allows you to be curious. As you build your curiosity muscle, you’ll find it easier to look at your responses to stress and see patterns and triggers.
I believe if you give them a chance, abstract photography is fun and calming. And interrupting negative thinking patterns is a good habit to develop.

Appreciating the present moment with help from the color yellow.
So often we wait for a big event, for everything to line up just right. And when it doesn’t, are you bummed out? Well, the key is to appreciate the present moment. Big moments are wonderful, but most of life is about ordinary little moments. So if you want life to mean more, you’ve got to look at the gift of right now. The color yellow led me to this epiphany. Take a look at this abstract photo’s message.
The Great Wave.
I see the rise of the ocean and foam spilling over the crest of a wave. This abstract photo reminds me of a recurring dream. During times of overwhelming emotions, our subconscious plays out themes like giant waves. This wave appeared in a piece of metal with paint overspray, deterioration, and scratches. I offer this as a symbol of releasing emotions that have been stirred up.
