Bullet journaling is my secret weapon to staying organised. If you don’t know what a Bullet journal is read this post ‘Why you NEED a bullet journal’
I am artistically challenged but I love to doodle in my bullet journal. That’s the great thing about doodles though, they are by essence simplified representations, not photo-realistic pictures. They can add character to your bullet journal with a few simple shapes. So I don’t have to try and make my doodles look realistic and fail miserably. The aim of this post is to show you some easy bullet journal doodle ideas I’ve found around the web.
There is research from Harvard that says that doodling can help you recall details. 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!
I’m loving drawing animals at the moment, so here are some simple tutorials on how to doodle animals.
