July 3rd: Daily Doodle For My Health

Today is the last minutes of a WELL NEEDED few days off!  Giving me time to build and strengthen my faith, and COURAGE.  This month in July, I’ve made it a goal to doodle every day.  It is believed “Doodling” can offer stress relief and improve our focus.  I agree, but there are lots of other benefits attributed to doodling.  The s-curve doodle above was relaxing. I ended up spending 3x longer drawing it, just to enjoy the relaxation benefits.

Time to draw: 60 min 

Here are four other benefits Doodling gives me:

Creativity

BrainStorming

Help Dealing With STUFF!

Makes Ya SMAT-AH (smarter)…

Well, Doodling can help me learn, this one is more of a guess.

 

 

To continue my Daily doodle goal this month…On July 2,  I would try a “Tangle” style doodle.  I started out with an optical illusion with squares… It was a total Fail… I didn’t even bother shading it.

 

Time to draw: 35 min 

“My parameters are simple: draw what comes to mind. Focus on a feeling and doodle it out…No color, just black and white images.  I want to also try to add a time limit of 20 minutes max (something new). No, this will not be  Zentangle, or “Tangle” but some principles apply and I may do a few of my own patterns.”
