Drawing the simplest shapes can do everything from boost your mood to melt stress.
Spark your confidence… write your name. Studies show that we have a natural bias toward anything that bears our name. Just looking at your letters lights up major brain regions and boosts confidence and control.
Improve your mood… sketch spring. Draw a flower, tree or the sun. Nature bounces you back from a blue mood. Since a happy, relaxed brain is more creative, “drawing” on the power of nature helps you think outside the box.
Relax fast… draw super-sized circles. Drawing circles is so calming, it slows down breathing. Gradually draw bigger and bigger circles, feel freer in a few minutes.
