Doodling! It’s good for the brain.

I’ve known since childhood I concentrate better when I doodle. When I am not allowed to doodle my mind drifts off into another world, another space, another time. I end up hearing absolutely nothing of the meeting.

People who don’t doodle don’t seem to understand. And that’s fine. There is no common experience to relate to.  Fellow doodlers grab each other by the elbow, look each other in the eye, and exclaim, “I know! Right?!” Well, maybe it’s not quite as dramatic as that, but there is an acknowledgement of a shared mystery.

I just found an article, or rather Facebook found it for me, that doodlers concentrate better while doodling! Here is a link to the article. There is some pretty amazing doodle/art on the page as well.
