One good way to relax is to go to an art gallery or museum and look at abstract paintings. Some art can elevate one into the cosmic beyond where there is no meaning, no intellect, no explanation--just beauty and truth. This is healthful like a powerful meditation for the mind and spirit. Forms and colors can soothe the soul, if painted harmoniously. Good art should invite the viewer into thinking about the meaning of life. The newest trend in health is practicing meditation and perhaps a healing through art.
