Everyone could use a bit more sleep. Lack of sleep can lead to a whole slew of issues and keep you from performing your best at work. 

It can lead to a decline in memory and recall, mood changes, thinking and concentration and result in high blood pressure and eight gain and many more health issues. Sleeping better leads to a more productive and happier workday (and home life).

Mindful doodling helps you sleep better because it:

  • Helps you mind go into a cathartic state, which is useful before you try go to sleep
  • Reduces anxiety and restless thoughts 
  • Distracts you from focusing on a given problem, allowing the unconscious mind to generate fresh ideas (when you wake up with that a-ha moment!)
