What Those Steamy Doodles Really Mean In The Bathroom
Whether you scribble stars or draw skulls, find out what your choice of doodle says about your inner thoughts.
How many times in your life have you found yourself doodling on a steamy bathroom mirror? Subconsciously creating the next world-renowned work of art.
Whether it is 12, 103 or 200,394 times, it is an odd act of boredom, cheekiness, or amorousness, we can all say we have done at least once in our lives.
Now more than ever are we having idle moments. The current lockdown situation has given us more time to reflect (and overthink) about life. Isolation daydreaming has got us expressing our subconscious thoughts through subliminal doodling.
We teamed up with graphologist Tracey Trussell to reveal the deeper meanings behind our own and our children’s bathroom doodles.
So, why do we doodle on steamy mirrors?
Picture this – you have just got out the shower and the whole room is steamy. So much so, that condensation has covered the entire bathroom mirror, then you find yourself drawing a little picture.
It has been revealed that we doodle as a way of relieving, stress boredom and even frustration. It is a way of dealing with life’s pressure’s in a playful manner.
The bathroom is a place where we find ourselves on autopilot. Cleaning, washing and brushing, are activities where our inner dialogue takes precedence and you find yourself thinking of things that have been lingering at the back of your mind.
These underlying thoughts travel down from your brain, to the tip of your fingers and onto a steamed mirror in the form of doodles.
