A doodle a day…


I really wish my teachers had known that doodling while listening to lectures helps you retain information. I was a chronic doodler and always got in trouble for it.

Check out today’s Deepak challenge and why you should do it:

Put pen or pencil to paper today, and doodle for a few minutes while you’re listening to something you need to remember. It could be during a class, webinar, or even a radio or TV program that contains information you’re trying to retain. Create a simple line drawing or geometric pattern – whatever you like.

Why it mattersDoodling has gotten a bad reputation as a mindless time-waster. But when you draw little squiggles and sketches while listening, it helps you better retain what you’ve heard. Doodling seems to harness the brain’s wanderlust and prevent unproductive daydreaming. In fact, in a study on doodling and memory, those who doodled while listening to a monotonous two-and-a-half minute phone message recalled 29% more of the details afterward than did a group who listened to the message without doodling.

So far they have been pretty good… well except for yesterday’s crunches… I didn’t really understand the instructions so skipped those.

    I completely agree! Especially for people with dyslexia or ADHD. Doodling helps the mind focus. Keep up the doodling! 🙂

At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
Loved the ride up to @barkervillebc I'm a sucker for historic towns. #goldrushtrail #explorebc so far we've made our way up #seatoskyhighway #duffylakeroad #route97 #cariboohighway next up @route16_ca #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x is rocking it.
