What Good Does Doodling Do? 3 Surprising Brain Benefits!

Steve Jobs. Albert Einstein. Nikola Tesla. Leonardo da Vinci. And just about every American president. What do they all have in common? They all doodled! Why should you doodle, too? 

  • It improves memory. A 2009 study conducted by Professor Jackie Andrade found that doodlers recalled facts significantly better than non-doodlers. 
  • It helps attention and focus. When we doodle, we focus on that, and we save our brain’s executive functioning for the really important stuff. 
  • It's enjoyable and relaxing!

So doodle away!
