The top health benefits of doing ceramics

  • Creative outlet – There are both physical and mental benefits from expressing yourself by creating something. With pottery you can produce something and express yourself in some way.​

  • Increase optimistic outlook – Pottery enables for improvements in flow and spontaneity, provides an outlet for grief, and helps you with self-identification and self-expression, bolstering confidence and self-esteem.

  • Improve focus – Ceramics allows you to escape the worries of life and shift your focus toward your creation. Being able to fully focus something helps the mind relax and expand, which will help you focus in other areas of life as well.

  • Reduces stress – Our hands are an outlet for creativity, the sense of touch is of high importance. A lot of focus is required while you’re making ceramics, therefore outside distractions are reduced and no longer stress you out.

  • Exercises the hands, wrists, and arms – The movement of making ceramics is gentle yet strengthening to the hands, wrists, and arms. This can be beneficial to those prone to arthritis in the hands, as it promotes joint movement and dexterity.

  • A natural pain killer – Stress can lead to feeling sensations of pain and discomfort. Since ceramics is a hobby known for reducing stress and boosting self-esteem, pain caused by stress may be alleviated while taking part in ceramics.

  • Captures memories – Your artwork has the potential to last forever. Whether or not you hope future civilizations to discover it and have it immortalized in a museum or if you would rather have it sitting in your home’s foyer, seeing the creation in its final form will serve as a reminder of your accomplishments.
