Write your way healthier
The Journal of Research and Personality, had a study that seemed to show that writing on positive subjects might boost your immune system.
Writing also helps you sleep better, according to Applied Psychology. Spend 15 minutes before bed writing about things you are grateful for.
Writing or journaling has been shown to reduce symptoms of asthma and arthritis.
Writing perks you up and helps keep feelings of anger and hostility in check.
Writing makes you grateful. Good vibes.
When vibes are good, you may want to get out and exercise.
AND--writing helps keep your brain cells working and connecting...Thinking and expressing yourself on hard subjects may even keep dementia at bay.
I used to know a guy who would copy a paragraph from The New York Times just to get some words in his mind and then he took off from there for a day of writing.
As you readers know, I write about everything. It doesn't make me feel better all the time, but it can't hurt.
