WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DRAWING
Why might you care about drawing?
Drawing improves brain function.
That's right, drawing is an activity that can help your brain do more, do it better, and stay sharp longer in life.
Western science and society promoted left-brain analytic and logical thinking for the past 200+ years. Yet in the past 30-40 years science has gradually admitted that we need BOTH sides of our brain working together for everything we do.
The easiest way to stimulate right-left brain synchronicity is to do creative things like, but not limited to:
• playing a musical instrument
• do improv acting
• wood carving
• sculpture, pottery
• and DRAWING
Some activities require lots of time, space, materials, or expense.
Not so with drawing.
You can enjoy drawing every day, just about anywhere, for a few minutes at a time, with few materials, and for very little money.
Drawing improves brain function in other ways, too.
Drawing stimulates your visual sense. You train your brain to "SEE" differently when you develop your drawing skill.
Drawing is a physical/mechanical action of the body: you train your brain to develop more eye-to-hand coordination and fine motor skills.
Drawing reduces stress
Once you let go of those nagging negative belief systems that tell you not to draw you will find out how peaceful, calm, even meditative, you can be while you are drawing.
A friend of mine who had Parkinson's Disorder found regular drawing to help her cope emotionally with the problem, yet it was also an activity that reduced the symptoms.
Drawing takes your focus away from worry and busy-mind to being in the present moment. Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing to do at the end of a work-day.
A short drawing break in your day can help your brain relax so that you can receive the solution to a problem you are working on. It's like when you get all sorts of good ideas in the shower - drawing can do that, too, and you don't have to get wet.
