Art Journaling – Week 22 – Doodle


I brought my journal along to a conference last weekend and during the teaching time, I started to doodle.  Having no intention in mind, only making marks on the page as I listened to the speaker.

Reading many articles and hearing much teaching about how doodling and even simple scribbling helps improve comprehension and creative thinking.  While I was listening and doodling shapes started to form and words came to mind.   In the end, I have a visual representation of what I learned throughout the teaching, which helps it stick in my memory, and a list of words that spoke to me and were calling out for further pondering, not only about the teaching I received but also about the things that were already weighing on my heart.

I watched a Ted Talk about this very thing, Sunny Brown states that “doodling impacts the way we process information and our ability to solve problems.”

Give doodling a try the next time you are in a lecture, a business meeting, or class and see if there is a difference.
