Nowadays, I don’t have to feel stress about workloads. When I do have one, I just take out my sketch book and start to scribble some patterns. Doodling helps me relieve my boredom and frustration, and the urge to doodle gets stronger as my stress levels rise.
Doodling is like a safety valve that allows pressure to be dispelled in a playful and creative way. I feel that this doodling is the great way to pass my time during boring times. It also helps me to improve my art skills and help me fine my passion. It also helps me to keep my mind relaxed while letting my hand do the thinking.
I found out that while I was doodling, they portray my emotions, thoughts and creativity. Each time when I start doodling, I seem to improve my creativity, especially the patterns. Sometimes, I find it funny to see my doodles which are funny but yet my own version.
Nowadays, I find that people seem to suffer from stress due to frantic pace of their daily routine life. They keep juggling between personal and professional life, like me, at all times. I think that this is not good for emotional and mental well-being, especially to senior citizens, so I think doodling is the best way to combat our stress. It may seem like a juvenile activity but these random scribbles can have more than what meets the eyes. During doodling, our brain utilizes the flood of thoughts in the mind as it tries to fine some productive activity to engage itself. So it is not surprising why many people nowadays scribble their thoughts on a single sheet of paper.
