Doodle your way to better Mental healthRashi Bhargava
A daily dose of doodling can keep the doctors at bay:) Doodling won’t help you avoid medication if you have a medical condition that requires it, but it can be a great stress reliever.
My therapist urged me to engage in activities I had enjoyed as a child, and that’s when I started dabbling in doodling. To be honest, it had been years since I had even touched a pencil. I was nervous at first. It’s likely that most of us have doodled on the last few pages of a notebook, either on purpose or by accident, when we were in elementary school, middle school, high school, or college. Doodling is great since they require neither training nor innate artistic ability on our part.
A task that was first assigned to me by my therapist has evolved into an integral component of my daily routine and is now second nature. I have doodled for about two years now and have made over 500 of them.
I found that doodling is a great way to relieve tension and deal with the unpredictability of covid and heartbreak. Doodles have a meditative effect on me; they quiet my mind and slow my pulse. For want of a better term, it calms my brain.
Even the most upbeat people sometimes struggle to keep their spirits up in the face of constant upheaval and unpredictability. However, there is an original way to keep your future worries under control: draw it out. Just like meditation, doodling can bring peace and tranquility to a chaotic mind.
What are you waiting for? Distract yourself from the stress of the situation by brewing a cup of tea and drawing a dragon on the notebook 🙂
