Boredom is my excuse for doodleing. Probably adhd, but I have difficulty being tied to one limiting thing for too long.

Helps you think.
Also recommended for office workers - good exercise.

Thank ewe both mrsmith and Colin

So, it's boredom and concentration. I can imagine that the need to doodle might add to assist in being able to focus but at the same time it might add as a distraction too.

hmmm....thanks both !
