3 Minutes To Happy

Doodling, drawing, and coloring increase blood flow to the prefrontal cortex, a brain region link to reward perception, Drexel University reports.   The result:  you feel a sense of pleasure within minutes. For the biggest lift,  doodle.  ” Coloring in shapes or drawing a picture may calm you, but it also has the expectation of a finished product,”  researcher Girija Kaimal says.   “Doodling is a form of personalized self expression and is perceived as more enjoyable.”

Doodle away!
