DOODLING : How it can make you more CREATIVE


Anu Handa

 

Updated: Aug 11, 2020

Many people come across brilliant ideas when they are doing routine activities like driving, taking a shower or walking. Different ideas and thoughts keep on floating in our brains, no matter what activities we are doing. This happens because our subconscious mind is an inexhaustible storehouse of ideas. Ideas strike us one moment and slip away the very next. So it is important to capture that particular moment of brilliance. You can build big ideas from little ones, new from old ones. Keep a pad of paper and a pencil next to you, in your purse or bag. Its easier to access and helps in capturing spontaneous thoughts and ideas to doodle.

Doodling improves your drawing and abstract thinking ability. Its fun to do and not difficult also. Doodles don’t follow any rules. You can draw anything you wish to. It need not make any sense. Make a doodle book. Store all your ideas in it. This way you build an archive of your concepts and visuals which is a good resource for future inspiration. If you are preparing for any design / architecture entrance exam specially NID, you should start doodling right away.
