Step 3- Let your mind relax, wander and doodle! ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Doodling activates your brain’s creativity. Moving beyond thinking, doodling relaxes the mind and loosens up your hand, wrist, and (you guessed it!)- your writing arm!
To get into practice, I recommend you doodle anytime, anywhere. Use those boring moments waiting in traffic, on hold on the phone, in line at the Post Office…be creative. Have your pencil or pen handy and doodle on that grocery list, on the junk mail. Sky’s the limit! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________
