Tips on Handling Stress

By | Creative Techniques, General | No Comments

Stress Relief

As of recent, I’ve been interested in stress management. Stress is something that unfortunately has the possibility to hinder us all at times. We can however, use stressful times as an opportunity to find relief in new directions, try something new and/or use the negative energy to fuel something positive.

In such an interest, I’ve been researching tips and tricks to help handle stress.

I think the first thing to identify when discussing stress is that there are different types.

Covert Stress

Covert stress as its name suggests builds up with no clear warning and can occur in various ways. The most common factor that aids covert stress is lack of sleep. Unfortunately this can happen for various reasons such as your job, responsibilities or something as simple as an unorganised environment.

Covert stress is dangerous because usually it’s hard to detect until the last minute. Read More

Kind Art has seen growth in both returning visitors and general visits thanks to your constant support. This forced us to think of ways we could make readers, writers and creative individuals like yourself feel more involved with the on going progression. We think and know it’s time to be able to give back and let the readers have a say on some of the material they read and should be reading.

Business Update & Competition

A small update from us this week as we’re still making developments on what was mentioned in the previous business update.

Kind Art has covered a lot of ground with Microsoft and has begun to utilise the BizSpark services. As part of our development, Kind Art is now able to provide hosting to our clients.

This is great news as it assists us in centralising all our services and therefore streamlines the overall experience for the client. It also means that we’re now able to bundle packages and provide affordable prices on web design/web development.

The Kind Art social media networks are doing very well with Facebook having over 3000 likes, Twitter 1200 followers and our newest platform Instagram approaching 100 followers (currently at 85). We really appreciate all the help we’ve had so far so we’ve decided to run our first competition! Read More

It’s been nearly 5 months since the last blog post…

Even with no official update, the views for the site have not decreased. The support on our social media sites is consistent and we’ve received emails of encouragement to continue producing content. So thank you for staying engaged and a massive thanks to those who have contacted us with encouragement and interest.

A lot has happened in the past 5 months, and it’s all good reasons as to why we’ve not been updating the blog.

This is Kind Art

Kind Art

Welcome to Kind Art, a New Kind of Art.

If you’ve used Kind Art in the past you may be a little confused as to why everything has changed. The premises to Kind Art remains the same however, there are some differences.

Prior to the rebranding of Kind Art, Kind Art was used as a hobby, it wasn’t taken too seriously and content was only ever produced when time was available. Now, Kind Art is taken seriously. Others have been included in project who will help shape the growth and ensure that regular content will be provided. Although not everyone is listed, you’ll be able to keep track of the key members at Kind Art by viewing the about page.

At the present time, Riannah and myself have decided that the blog will consist of the following categories:

• General
• Creative Techniques
• Photography
• Projects
• Inspiration

The general category keeps creativity in mind but will contain posts regarding various topics that do not necessary fit into the other defined categories. Posts will consist of general Kind Art business, news discussions, popular events and more.

Creative techniques will allow you to identify and create a discussion regarding various creative techniques. Posts will also contain popular tools used to increase creativity.

The photography category contains images photographed by Kind Art where you’ll be able to give advice and critique on the techniques used. Some images may also be used in the portfolio as well posted on Instagram.

The projects category will contain posts relating to the current projects Kind Art is taking part in. Projects will be both business and pleasure related and may also be an extension to what can be found in the portfolio.

Sometimes your creativity runs dry and you need a little inspiration. This category will contain various creative posts varying between images, videos and quotes. Content will be produced by Kind Art but will also be from other sources so be sure to check the references.

Kind Art is not only a blogging platform but is also a way for those involved to showcase their talents. The best of these talents will be displayed in the portfolio section.

Like before, any creative individual can get involved with Kind Art. The only thing that has changed is the process. Now, individuals will have to contact Kind Art using the form on the contact page. They will then be instructed to provide examples of their previous work and also an explanation of how their work will benefit themselves as well as Kind Art.

It’s early days for Kind Art however, a lot of thought and planning has gone into the execution of this project so expect to see the site flourish with various creative content. Until then, bare with us as we try out different techniques to engage you as a reader as well as interest new readers to get involved.
