Useful Expressions

Engaging with some form of artistic expression can help to alleviate feelings of psychological distress, such as depression and anxiety. Doing art has also been linked to improving memory, reasoning, and resilience.

1) The ball is in your court

If we say that the ball is in someone's court, we mean that they need to do something before any progress can be made, and if we put the ball in someone's court, we make sure that they are responsible for whatever happens next: I've offered to pay for her driving lessons, but the ball is in her court now.


2) Get a taste of your own medicine

If we say let him get a taste of his own medicine it could be harsh or unpleasant treatment that is like the treatment someone has given other people. In other words, if a playboy jumps from one to the other girl without a second thought. “Let him get a taste of his own medicine when the girl he falls in love with jilts him for another guy.”


3) It’s just a storm in a teapot

A storm in a teapot (British English) is an idiom meaning a small event that has been exaggerated out of proportion which is a disproportionate reaction of anger, concern, or displeasure over some minor or trivial matter. A less common variant, a tempest in a teapot is American English. “If you ask me, these protests are nothing but a storm in a teapot that's been stoked by a media campaign of misinformation.”


Creativity is what helps people focus the mind, so you can compare it to meditation due to its calming effects on the brain and body.


Take care!

Prof. Carl Boniface
