Doodles are an unconscious expression of our mind through the art of scribbling and putting pen to paper. We are usually doing or thinking about something else when we doodle. On the phone, daydreaming in school, we are not concentrating on what we are drawing. As a consequence doodles are free of any conscious thought.

Doodles are a fantastic way to unleash your creativity. These days as children we are not encouraged to draw or to be artistic unless we are "good at it". Only those that are obviously talented are encouraged to draw. You will often see people draw geometric shapes when they doodle. They feel comfortable drawing these shapes {which they learnt to draw in school usually in Maths class} but they will not really let themselves go and try other shapes and styles. There is still that worry that someone may see their doodle and it will not be "good".

Doodles do not have to look like anything. There is no one standing over your shoulder saying that it is not good enough. When you realize this you can relax and just let you mind wander as your pen creates. You can change any part of the doodle at any time simply by going over what your have already done. The sky is the limit.

Doodles are a great way to let your mind relax and to let your creativity (which is in all of us) take over. If you have a problem that needs solving, let your mind dwell on the problem while you let your hand scribble on a piece of blank paper. You may be surprised to find that the answer to your problem becomes apparent while you are doodling.

Not only will your drawing skills improve when you doodle but you will not believe the stress relief that doodling can give you. It is only just being acknowledged that doodling is a great way to relax. If you start to seriously doodle then you will really notice how calm and stress free you feel when you have finished a doodle. As your doodles become more elaborate your feeling of satisfaction will grow and your doodles will develop into works of art. So when your feeling really stressed do not discount the relaxing power of doodles.
