For most of us, our “normal” is operating at a chronic stress level. Heightened cortisol levels are the norm in our daily lives. This leads to an inability to focus, concentrate, and perform our best when it comes to both work and play. Putting pen to paper or pen to tablet just for 10 mins a day gives you a creative break from stress.
Here’s why creative mindful doodling is a fast and effective way to help you de-stress:
- Doodling is one of the most accessible and effective ways to help relax the mind so it can integrate and process information
- The repetitive, rhythmic motion of doodling increases blood flow to the prefrontal cortex of the brain, for a calming effect on our emotions
- Doodling provides a safe creative outlet that helps people manage emotions and neutralize negative feelings without judgment

In this simple, guided doodle break, I show you how the act of repetition can immediately start to help you de-stress. Grab a drawing utensil of your choice and watch the video (and doodle along with me) to learn an activity that will bring calm and lower your stress levels.
