Staying in the hospital can be pretty drab and boring especially if you happen to stay on those typical white-walled hospitals that have nothing in them rather than you and time. In most cases, staying in such drab walled hospital rooms increase the feeling of being sick and lowers the enthusiasm of a person to move, talk and get up. Patients asked much to prefer sunrooms or hospitals that have a glint of art in them. It is said to lift up their moods and produce a positive atmosphere, that helps in eliminating the bad feeling that sickness comes with. But, most often than not hospitals do not specifically invest in these things and much rather on equipment and technicalities.
The Good News
A piece of good news is that hospitals and facilities like Gastro Center NJ are welcoming the thought more and are into investing in the aesthetics of their facilities to compensate with their technicalities. Transforming their once white walls into pieces of bold-colored, stylish and artistically enhances walls that give an initial treatment to their patients.
Other than creating a stylish interior to their facility, hospitals are also being more open into incorporating art programs to their in house patients that are conducted on a daily basis, including the patients into art hours and therapies that greatly boosts their mood leading to a faster recovery and stronger positive mindset. Hospital arts include murals and paintings that denotes messages of recovery, optimism, family, friends, and community that help patients think of all the things that can strengthen and help them help themselves.
Art is a medicine that hospitals are now discovering, art can be a way for patients to treat themselves with proper mindsets and stronger visions of themselves and how they want to walk out of the hospital to create their very own art that can also inspire and transgress to others who might just need it.
