There are more reasons to write than you might otherwise realize. For many of us, the writing we do in the course of a day is something we have to do. Maybe you have to send emails for your job or prepare some kind of report. If we do have to write anything out by hand, it’s usually a grocery list or something like that. However, there are many benefits to writing something out by hand, particularly in terms of wellness and mental health. At our SoPsyched online store, you can find a notebook to fit your needs.
The Power of a Handwritten Note
Do you remember the last time you got a handwritten note? Maybe it was one from your parents, telling you that they were proud of you, or wishing you luck with some difficult endeavor. Perhaps it was a love note from a partner, telling you how much you meant to them. Maybe it was even just from a boss or colleague, telling you “thanks” for a job well done. A personal note, no matter the context, usually means so much more than an email, a Slack message, a text, Facebook Messenger message, or something else.
One way to improve mental health that’s caught on in prior years: utilizing a gratitude journal. The idea is the simplest thing: at some point during the day (usually at the end of the day, but not for everyone) you simply write down everything that you’re grateful for in the course of the day. Maybe it's a partner or family member. Perhaps it’s something good that has happened for you professionally. Or, it could be something simpler: a great workout, a fantastic sandwich, a new song you heard that you can’t get out of your head. You do this over the course of many days, and then, when you’re in a bad mood or something rough happens, that’s when you turn to it. The idea is that whatever you’re going through doesn’t seem so bad, because you can look back on the good things that are happening in your life. That way, you don’t lose sight of them. The journals we offer at SoPsyched excel as gratitude journals.
