Improve Your Mind Tranquility Using This
"The faintest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory".
Have you ever heard of this? It is a Chinese proverb that serves as a reminder that writing down things can be a powerful tool in life!
So if you want to recall something, especially things with specific details, write it down! Writing in your journal can help you to recover from disorganized thoughts. When you want to remember something, it is much easier to read it again on your notes rather than searching it up on your mind, you'll just end up getting lost and confused.
Do you know that feeling that can make you very uncomfortable? It is when millions of things come up in your mind and you don't know how to tackle each and one of them before you break down. Sometimes you just wish that you could store all of those thoughts in one place so you won't bother letting them stay on your mind.
If you ever feel that way, then you should start making this a habit.
Keeping a journal is also proven to improve your writing skills. To put it simply, the more you write, the more you discover techniques in building paragraphs and wordplay thus, improving your writing skills. This is also the best moment to write down your goals and your plans to achieve them. If your goal is serious enough, you can read it over and over again in your journal to help you remember what you want the most. As stated by Mark Murphy, CEO of Leadership IQ and the author of Hiring For Attitude, "Writing things down doesn’t just help you remember, it makes your mind more efficient by helping you focus on the truly important stuff. And your goals absolutely should qualify as truly important stuff."
Lastly, writing boosts your memory! If you write something by hand, all that complex sensory information increases the chances the knowledge will be stored for later. In short, writing by hand forces your brain to process information in a more detailed way, which helps you successfully load that information into your memory. (LifeSavvy)
