  • Why doodles?

For many, doodling is an everyday activity that provides moments of mindfulness/head space, helps to reduce stress and can even help our memory. Doodling can be just the break your brain needs to help retain information, fill gaps in thinking patterns and allow our minds to ‘breathe’ whilst taking in vast amounts of information.

Taking a few minutes out of our day to day activities can also be great for our mental health. Not only can it help us to problem solve – a moment of mindfulness can improve our mood, help us to feel less overwhelmed and can even offer us a form of mini meditation.

Here’s our top 5 reasons why doodling is a great option:

  • It’s super easy – anyone can do it
  • It’s free and easily accessible – you just need a pen and paper
  • It doesn’t need to look a certain way – it’s a personal form of expression
  • It ignites creativity in us
  • It provides us with a ‘mini pause’ in our day
