Art has helped me heal in many ways.

Today I am 56 years old and create with watercolors and doodling to help me with mindfulness and staying present. What does staying present do for me, you may be wondering? For 40 years I was a chronic worrier. I worried about everything – every single thing there was to worry about I made sure and worried about it. It has caused a lot of disease and sickness in myself.

The following information is from the internet: Researchers say that creative pursuits help to build connections in the brain to strengthen cognitive reserve, or brain resilience, and subsequently prevent memory loss. Creating artwork can also improve fine motor skills through small, purposeful movements, which may help to prevent pain and stiffness. Beyond the physical and mental benefits, art can have an important emotional impact as well. For those who have trouble expressing themselves, creating a visual representation of thoughts and feelings can be a simpler way to communicate. Communication with others reduces feelings of loneliness and isolation. The AARP says that doing the arts and crafts you did as a child can help you connect to positive childhood memories and emotions.

Art as Meditation

Much like meditation, art can calm your mind by helping you focus on the moment, a popular strategy for reducing anxiety and other negative feelings. Getting lost in thought while you create can help your brain and body relax, which also leads to stress reduction and improved health. https://www.riteaid.com/articles/the-arts-and-healthy-aging-how-does-art-affect-the-brain

Kris Rudarmel

I am an (award winning) womanpreneur, artist, speaker, empowerment leader and knowledge seeker. I share my stories of adversity with fear, in business and in life, with vulnerability and being awakened and how I boldly built a company to new levels and took risks to soar. Along my journey, my belief in myself, tenacity, courage, confidence, hope and faith grew exponentially. You will hear my message of enlightenment and my life changing principles for fearless living that will assist and inspire others to jump to their greatest potential. I hope to inspire my community to find their strength to live courageously, ignite their flame and leap joyously. I believe we should continually upgrade our dreams to preserve our road to happiness. You need to believe it can be done- this will set your mind in motion to find a way to do it. I (along with my husband) bootstrapped our way to building a local, woman owned enterprise in Salt Lake City; Anchor Water Damage & Restoration. While building Anchor (2008-2016) I have been recognized in the community 8 times with the following: • Nationally Recognized 2016 Best of the Best -Top 3 ‘Women in Restoration’ 2016 Remediation and Restoration Magazine (October issue) • 2016 Enterprise 7 Award: Woman Business Owner • 2015 and 2014 Best of State • 2013 30 Women to Watch- Utah Business Magazine • 2013 Outstanding Entrepreneur • 2011 Woman Business Owner of the Year – NAWBO SLC • 2009 Small Business of the Year • 2013 Kris graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program • 2012 GE Capital Banking on Women program • 2011 Won the SCORE/Sam’s giveaway (2 companies per state were awarded this) I love being involved in the community. I help out by serving on committees and volunteering. I serve on the Granite Foundation Board and have held positions at Chamber West, NAWBO along with other organizations. I was a mentor (2016) for the Women of Worth foundation. I reside in South Jordan, Utah with my husband of 33 years and my 2 children.
