It may look like you are merely moving your crayon around the paper aimlessly but doodling can help you shift effortlessly from the reactive (subconscious mind) to the problem-solving mind (where learning takes place). Harvard research has also shown that there can be a significant increase in comprehension and recall when an individual is allowed to scribble, free-draw, or doodle while listening. So when you need to keep your mind focused, keep your pencil or crayon moving! If you don’t have a pencil or crayon, then doodle with your finger on your arm or leg. The motion and tactile stimulation will help keep your brain awake.
The ICWIB Just Scribble activity is a great way to explore focusing your mind.
I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
