"When Emma Miles started taking art classes a year ago, she didn’t expect them to have a huge impact on her life. But the busy businesswoman needed an outlet outside her work life to relax and unwind, and an art class seemed like the perfect fit. “As a business owner, my day can become pretty chaotic,” says the cofounder of Pawsome Advice. “Plus, the burden of being responsible for everything that is happening in the company can be heavy at times.” The art classes, though, had a tremendous positive effect on Miles. “Taking art classes helped me decrease stress levels, as it allowed me to put my frustration to canvas,” she says. “As they say: paper suffers everything, and it can really help when it comes to destressing.” Today Miles takes art classes—drawing and painting—once a week."
