The Energy Answer: Doodle For Wellbeing with Melissa Lloyd

Updated: Mar 26, 2022

The Energy Answer with Alison Butler is an interview series where we explore mental & physical well being and tools we can use to reduce stress and overwhelm.

Today on The Energy Answer I'm chatting with Melissa Lloyd of DoodleLovely and DoodleBreaks. Melissa's journey is about bringing intentional calm and creativity using doodling as a key tool to help quiet the mind and connect to a place deep inside, that needs daily attention.

In our conversation, we talk about:

  1. How Melissa used creativity & doodling in her own life in the corporate world during times of burnout.

  2. The many benefits of doodling including stress relief, mindfulness, and boosting creativity.

  3. How we can use guided tools to help us learn more about doodling and get into the doodling process.

  4. Doodling for self-care. Making time for space to rest, rejuvenate and reset.

  5. The importance of checking in with yourself and not being afraid of taking breaks.

  6. Being intentional , clear and realistic about how you are working when you are feeling drained.

  7. How to give yourself permission to START somewhere. It's more about the journey than the destination.
