Writing is a necessity of life. Like a routine, writing completes your day. It is a daily habit that makes you happy and keeps you sane. There is a sort of excitement when you see some writing stationary at a shop. Don’t you feel magnetically attracted to it? You have all the stuff but still you crave for more. This is simply because you miss something the day you don’t write.
Writing is therapeutic
Writing definitely heals you. Did you realise that you write on every occasion? Why? Have you ever asked yourself? Shuffle your memories and you will get an answer. You write when you feel good about something. As soon as you write, you read it again. Then you smile and feel happy remembering it for long.
You write when you feel bad about something or someone. Your anger is written down on that piece of paper and gradually you feel better. The burdened mind gets lighter. You are able to divert your attention. You feel much relaxed after you vent out your anger on the paper.
All thoughts at one place
Many times you just want to write something important but you don’t. Then an hour later, again something essential comes up in your mind and you feel lazy to jot down. But this adds to confusion at a later stage. If you write all your important thoughts at one place, it will be easier for you to recall. You just need to write at that very moment and you are done. It makes your life simpler.
Exercises your brain
According to sources, humans use only one-third of the brain throughout their life. This must be surprising as to know that rest of the brain is numb. But writing solves this issue. While writing, you constantly think about the points and situations about which you write. And the brain becomes super active. As you think of an idea your brain gets alert and you write immediately before it slips out of the mind. A much larger part of your brain is being used in this process.
Organises your life
When you write everything at a place, all your thoughts are grouped together. You get a clear picture of the plans ahead. Reading those points again reminds you of the missed practices in life. Writing definitely makes you organised. You get a clear picture of what are the goals to be achieved in that particular day. And if you miss out on anything, you can always add to the next day. After all, we all are humans. We may miss doing something but would be assured that all the tasks are safely written at one place.
Enriches your vocabulary
Don’t you feel a change in vocabulary from what you have been using than the ones being used by the current generation? Definitely there is a change. And this comes in front of you only when you write regularly. When you come across a new word, you search for its meaning and want to use it in your language. The dictionary in our mind is also updating regularly through writing.
The benefits are endless, it is just that you need to start and see what changes writing bring to your life. So without wasting another minute take out a diary and pen or sit on your laptop and voila!
