Fun Friday: Doodling
June 3, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Fun Fridays offer a refreshing mid-day break from work to indulge in physical, mental, or creative activity.
Deb Putnoi returned to Fun Fridays to show “Doodle Escapes,” five-minute doodle breaks. Whether you’re at your desk for 10 hours on virtual calls, a student feeling stressed out, or parent who is looking for ways to engage your kids—these creative exercises gave participants a different way to change their mood, de-stress, challenge their brain and just relax in a new way. She shared 3 different simple exercises that anyone can use right now even if you never doodle or draw. These 5-minute exercises would help anyone to take a couple of minutes to de-stress, jumpstart your creative brain or just take a different kind of break.
