Doodling is a basic component of creativity, a gentle introduction into the creative arena. Doodling gives you a simple creative outlet. Exploring your inner creative potential is empowering and it is also very rewarding when it is done collaboratively. 

Doodling can be calming, help centre your mind, and take away stressors of the day.

It is very therapeutic for good mental health.

Taking 5 minutes with pencil and paper (or pen and card, chalk and pavement...) will help to calm the mind. It can even help during a stressful day, to help focus the mind on a project or situation.

     Doodling for Learning

Focused thinking, is when you’re concentrating on the information that you’re trying to learn, or understand. Diffused thinking, is a more relaxed thinking state, allowing the brain some rest. It promotes subconscious incubation of ideas and information.

After a while of focusing intently on a subject that you’re trying to learn, sit back with a pen and paper and relax your mind–that is, enter the diffused mode of thinking–by doodling. You’ll learn better.

Doodling for Productivity

Doodling enhance access to the creative, problem-solving, and subconscious parts of the brain, while allowing the conscious mind to keep working.

Doodling unifies three major learning modes: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.
