Benefits of Drawing – Stimulate the Brain

“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.
