“When you draw an object, the mind becomes deeply, intensely attentive, and it’s that act of attention that allows you to really grasp something, to become fully conscious of it.” – Milton Glaser, Drawing Is Thinking
MEMORY: Drawing is the oldest language. Even our language is composed of letters drawn on paper to form ideas. Not only is drawing a form of literacy, it also helps your memory! A study from Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology found that participants that doodled were 29% more likely to remember mundane information.
IT MAKES YOU HAPPY: When you draw, you release Serotonin, Endorphins, Dopamine, and Norepinephrine. You don’t have to be a famous artist to draw and doodle. Drawing also has calming effects, so if you’re stressed out, you may try to pick up a pencil. Read more about how drawing relieves stress.
HAND-EYE COORDINATION: Even you can’t draw the perfect circle, you are improving your hand-eye coordination.
ALERTNESS: What’s better than a cup of coffee in the morning? DRAWING! The act of drawing wakes up your brain and makes you more alert. We think that’s pretty cool.
