The art which you do without thinking when your mind is occupied or bored.

Spontaneous marks to help you think, keep your hand busy in the process.

Mindless art?  To you, maybe.

Just pay attention to what you doodle.

It’s a brain exercise, and good for it.

Makes you a better problem solver.

A better artist.

A better writer.

Unlocks ideas and concepts you didn’t even know were kicking around in your brain

Helps you process and retain better.

Untangles knots in your mind to clear thinking.

Improves your penmanship.

Like practicing the scales.

A deeply intuitive thing.

Open to everyone.

An inner expression of the inner self.

For a long time, I doodled only boxes, or squares, of all sizes.

To cross out, to fill in, to check off, to doodle as I journaled daily through grief and sorrow.

During the time I was packing to move and when I wasn’t packing.

When I didn’t feel like writing or smiling for a long period of time.

One day, all of sudden, out of nowhere, flowers began blossoming on the page,  with explosions of hearts and stars on every page my pen touched.

My sorrow had changed and pages had begun to blossom instead with genuine smiles from within, and, when I started thinking outside the box.

Doodling had been part of the process of grief and loss for me.

Don’t underestimate how doodling can untangle the knots of the neuropaths of your brain to life and creativity.

Watch what you doodle on the page in your unique forms, shapes, and words.

Because, without realizing it, you are probably already doodling without thinking about it.

What you doodle can tell you a lot about yourself and what is going on inside your brain and your body because everything is connected.

What are you experiencing in your life at the moment? Check to see if and what you are doodling.

Happy doodling, whatever you doodle-ly do.  It will help you to think outside the box.
