The Perfect Day! Part 2

10 am: Meeting – doodle ’till the doctor comes

The meeting is slow, you doodle away on your notebook, the boss frowns – don’t panic, science is on your side. A British psychologist go so far as to motivating participants of a meeting to doodle, because it improves the concentration.

The scientist of the University of Plymouth tested how many facts 40 participants could remember at the end of a monotone monologue. Those who were drawing doodles could remember 30% more then the ones who just sat there doing nothing but listening.

The reason: Doodling actually prevents you from daydreaming, which occurs naturally when listing to rather uninteresting lectures.
