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!
