Think about the people that you know, and then think about yourself. We are all blessed with different personalities, and therefore different interests. And because of this, a lot of people have come to the conclusion that artistic things are simply not what they are cut out for. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard my boyfriend say that he can’t really enjoy art much because of his more left-brained and analytical orientation. But I have found this to be a total misconception! It is my opinion that no matter what your views on arts and crafts, there is one specific art that is naturally one you can enjoy immensely and excel at! My boyfriend, for example, loves playing the guitar and is super great at it. But that is the art that is best suited for him. So in this article, we will talk about how to identify your own natural art and make the most of it in your life.
If you are an analytical individual, science shows that this means you are a person who is mostly left-brained by nature. Perhaps you do not look down on arts and crafts per se, but you may feel as if you don’t have time to make them a hobby or how you can even be good at a particular activity to make the effort worth it for you. What I recommend is taking a step back and looking into your usual interests and hobbies with an outsider’s perspective. Do you enjoy writing and reading? Do you enjoy engineering or invention? Or what about building and construction projects? What you really love to do for fun or pleasure in life will shed lots of light on your ideal art form.
For example, a writer of code could find that writing stories or poetry may be the best activity for them to enjoy. Or an engineer/problem solver may find their brain gets equally challenged in sewing or painting. Other excellent art forms? Pottery, sketching, music, photography, even dancing. And most, if not all, of these enjoyable things to do are practical in the sense that you can use what you end up with in daily life.
If you are ready to dive head-on into a fun creative activity but don’t know where to begin, I recommend trying a variety of projects and art forms in order to see which you will take to the most. And you will be able to say you had fun at the same time!
My natural art? Sewing. My boyfriend’s? Music. Yours? Go and find out!
