Soothing Art Video Explains How Doodling Is Good for the Brain and Creativity

Doodling is good for the Brain and Creativity” is a video by artist Shoo Rayner from 2013 in which he explains the benefits of doodling while simultaneously creating a doodle for the viewer. Rayner’s calm voice and smooth, curving lines make for a very relaxing and soothing five minutes of video.

Doodling is good for the brain and for your creativity. As you doodle, the left hand side of the brain begins to go to sleep and all those annoying thoughts about what, where, when and how, fade away.

The the magical process begins. The right side of the brain, given time and space to be in charge, somehow come up with all the answers that the left side of the brain is demanding.

If ever you are stuck for an answer, stop trying to force it out, start doodling instead. You will be amazed!
