Mindful Doodling
Limited Capacity full

Mindful doodling consists of a series of repetitive strokes—straight lines, curves and dots—drawn on a paper. Mindful doodling is much more focused and deliberate, but still allows the doodler  to be creative and free-form in using patterns, lines, shapes and shading. Preliminary studies and anecdotal reports seem support the idea that mindful doodling is a “meditative” art form that actually induces relaxation and has an impact on self-control, mood, and stress reduction.
