I frequently doodle. It helps me concentrate. I’ve always known this to be true but have read recently that this has been confirmed by official research.
I often doodle in church to capture phrases that inspire me, but mostly to help me focus. I am delighted that this official research vindicates me in the face of those who would suggest that I am distracting myself when I doodle. Quite the opposite!
The doodle above is from today while I waited for my daughter at a 4H meeting where she was planning State Citizenship Day. The ones below were done during church. I carry a bound book with me in my purse for catching tidbits and for doodling. I heartily recommend it.
