How did we all get this busy? It’s embarrassing, really. We all have coping mechanisms for dealing with the constant flood of stupid stuff in our lives. Some people eat chocolate or buy sneakers online. Other people play drums really loudly or swim to Alcatraz. I’m not a strong swimmer, so I’ve settled on drawing.
Whether it’s a leisurely sketch in the park, a mid-meeting doodle, or an end-of-the-evening haiku, taking an #artbreak for as little as five minutes a day can have a powerful effect on your peace of mind, health, and creativity. Plus, it’s fun, and it’s an easy, low-pressure way to get yourself to play more.
