2. It is the act of drawing that is helpful, not the results of what you draw

and how skilled you are. I am an illustrator and given an idea to illustrate and represent in a visual way is very complex and makes your mind work in several different ways. To put those ideas on paper is even more complex. Don't worry about how good or bad you think it turns out, it is the act of drawing that is the reason for benefits to your memory and mind overall. You really have to instensely focus on it and that itself is therapeutic. Give it a shot again but don't focus on how good it is.
