Via the MindBodyGreen site, I came upon this interesting post written by Danny Gregory on: Ten Ways Drawing Can Relieve Stress & Inspire Wonder. Here are two of the points that caught my interest:
"You'll Amaze Yourself: Drawing isn't a mysterious matter of God-given talent. It just takes a few minutes of practice each day to make new connections in your brain and your body. I've discovered that keeping an illustrated journal helps me develop a creative habit that jump starts my drawing skills. And as your sketchbook fills with beautiful drawings, you become proud and eager to keep going."
"You'll Tell Your Story: Life is just a long succession of small epiphanies. You need to stop and seize them. By drawing the everyday things you encounter, you'll be making a record of what you're living through and what you are learning. A drawing and a sentence or two in a sketchbook turns those everyday moments into something significant. Over time, you'll build up a book of memories — a true record of what's important in your life."
