Just Do-odle It!

Have a Friday afternoon conference call in five minutes and your mind has already wondered into weekend mode? Grab your favorite writing device and draw squiggly shapes on your notebook or nearest scrap paper. Doodling provides just enough brain stimulation to help you stop daydreaming and get you focused back on the task at hand.

*This is according to a study in the Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology, this tactic showed it can improve alertness by 29 percent.

Doodle to your hearts content, maybe you will even create a personal masterpiece... ;)
