Cute easy drawings to help improve your concentration and memory
What are the benefits of doodling?
There has been many studies conducted by different scientists, psychologists and researchers. All of them state pretty much the same. Doodling helps improve your mental health, reduces anxiety, alleviates stress, improves your memory and helps you concentrate. Therefore, next time your boss decides to scold you on doodling instead of paying attention in a meeting, kindly let him know that you are actually focusing. Here are the main benefits of doodling:
- Improves memory. A study was conducted with 40 people, sitting and listening to a long, monotonous lecture. 20 of them were given notebooks and pens and were told to doodle. The other 20 had to just sit and listen. After the lecture was done, there was a Q&A on the subject of the lecture. The people who were doodling had remembered 29% more information than the people who were just listening.
- Helps you concentrate. Studies have found that doodling activates more cognitive functions, which, in turn, help you multi-task, plan and concentrate.
- Helps with anxiety and alleviates stress. Drawing, in general, is an incredible method of relaxation. Focusing on the thing you are drawing distracts you from your anxiety-ridden thoughts. This, in turn, helps you feel more calm and relaxed. If, however, you are looking to solve a problem while you are doodling, then it helps arrange your thoughts, therefore, firing up your problem-solving skills.
- Boosts your creativity. Even if you are not the greatest drawer, doodling can definitely help your creativity. Plus, the more you doodle, the better you get at drawing.
