LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — For Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Carol Edmonston can share a powerful creative tool that helped her through two bouts with breast cancer … Doodling!
Edmonston says a breast cancer diagnosis is always stressful but this year when the entire U.S. population remains under stress due to the pandemic, it is arguably more important than ever to offer women tools for coping that are simple, fun and portable.
Carol can share about the 3 R’s of doodling and how this seemingly frivolous and mindless activity became her constant companion during those times — a daily ritual, much like meditation. The niece of the late cartoonist and children’s book author Syd Hoff who wrote Danny and the Dinosaur and Sammy the Seal, among others, Edmonston says doodling allows our spirits to rest, recover and regroup.
She can explain the five biggest benefits of doodling and share why being diagnosed with breast cancer need not mark the end of life but can help transform a life by learning how to embrace the unpredictability of life with pen and paper. She can also share how doodling saved her own life, twice.
Edmonston is the author of several books, including The Healing Power Of Doodling: Mindfulness Therapy To Deal With Stress, Fear & Life Challenges (Bindu Publications, 2020).
