50 amazing doodle “How to’s” for your bullet journal

This is probably going to be one of my favorite posts of all time! And I dont even know where to start I am so excited!

So i started collecting these little “How-To” posts because I found them so helpful when creating little doodles in my bullet journal! So lets talk about some of the benefits of doodling!

So according to the Harvard <yeah fancy! Health Blog stated (and i found this insanely interesting so instead of summarising it I popped the whole quote in!)

In 2009, psychologist Jackie Andrade asked 40 people to monitor a 2-½ minute dull and rambling voice mail message. Half of the group doodled while they did this (they shaded in a shape), and the other half did not. They were not aware that their memories would be tested after the call. Surprisingly, when both groups were asked to recall details from the call, those that doodled were better at paying attention to the message and recalling the details. They recalled 29% more information!

While there are no definitive reasons for why this occurred, we are learning more about how this can happen. When you’re bored, your fight-or-flight system will do all that it can to rally and stay alert. Doodling (a form of fidgeting) may be a last-ditch attempt at staying awake and attentive. Doodling keeps you from falling asleep, or simply staring blankly when your brain has already turned off. The permission to “free-draw” keeps your brain online just a little while longer.

Spontaneous drawings may also relieve psychological distress, making it easier to attend to things. We like to make sense of our lives by making up coherent stories, but sometimes there are gaps that cannot be filled, no matter how hard we try. Doodles fill these gaps, possibly by activating the brain’s “time travel machine,” allowing it to find lost puzzle pieces of memories, bringing them to the present, and making the picture of our lives more whole again. With this greater sense of self and meaning, we may be able to feel more relaxed and concentrate more.

So I sat there and thought for a second – I must be a genius with all that doodling I do! haha! So I am so glad that I put together is awesome list of doodle how-to for your bullet journals

I then read another post that covered 7 benefits of doodling!

  1. It helps you concentrate and focus
  2. It can help empower creative insight
  3. It can help process emotions
  4. It can help alleviate stress
  5. It can be a creative outlet
  6. Can help you visualise learning and help you learn better
  7. helps with big picture thinking

What do we used to doodle?
