Everyone should have hobbies outside of work that they love to do. For many people that’s music. But as a musician, I had to find things outside of music that were interesting, fun, and helped make me a more well-rounded person. (Not to mention relieve some stress.)
I have three main hobbies:
- Watching Hockey
- Painting wooden boxes – check out some photos on my website.
This post is about Doodling. I’ve always liked to do it. My notes in college were covered in doodles. It helped me think and process (and sometimes stay awake). Sometimes when I have something on my mind that I need to work through, I’ll start doodling and it always helps. Before iPhones and iPads, I used to doodle in the pit when I was playing musicals. For Christmas, my boyfriend got me the book Zen Doodling and it has been really fun working through and getting new ideas. Now, I try to doodle a little bit each day. It’s a lot of fun!
Do you doodle? Share a picture in the comments below, I’d love to see it!
