In addition to keeping you organized, a bullet journal can also be a fantastic creative outlet. Even if you’re not artistic, you can still get creative with bullet journal doodles! 

Today I’m going to show you the benefits of doodling and how to easily get started!

Definition of Doodling

What is the meaning of the word “doodle”? The dictionary defines doodling as ” scribbling absentmindedly .” In other words,  you don’t have to be an artist to be a great doodler.  

Bullet journal doodles are simple drawings that don’t require any skill. But they still make your journal pretty!

Best of all, there are plenty of easy ways to incorporate doodling into your daily life –  and reap the benefits. 

Wait, what? There are benefits to absentminded doodling? Yes!

Benefits of Doodling

While doodling may seem like a waste of time, it actually has some measurable benefits.  Because it doesn’t require your full attention, doodling is an excellent way to relax and unwind. There’s even evidence that it improves your ability to concentrate.

For instance, Vox.com writes:

” …the repetition and rhythmic motions of sketching can activate the relaxation response as a way to counter the body’s fight-or-flight intuition. And making art has been shown in studies to reduce cortisol, the “stress hormone.” “

Also,  according to a study published in the Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology  

“..doodlers find it easier to recall dull information (even 29 percent more) than non-doodlers, because the latter are more likely to daydream. ” theatlantic.com

In addition to reducing stress and improving memory – you get to pretty up your journal! It’s win-win!

The Best Pens for Bullet Journal Doodles

For great bullet journal doodles, it’s important to use the right pen. For instance, don’t doodle with a fountain pen. The ink will flow too quickly and ruin your doodle.

You also don’t want to use a pen that draws thick lines. Thick lines will look awkward while thin lines allow you to add detail.

So, before you start doodling, check out this list of the best pens to use in your bullet journal!
