How Regular Writing Can Positively Influence Your Brain?

Posted on the 17 May 2017 by Gaurav Tiwari @wpgaurav

The more you write, the better you'll get as the time goes by. Writing is just like any other skill - upgradeable. Good writers are always intellectual people. They know what they're talking about, they're highly communicative, and you can notice something in them. That "something" is very much debated nowadays: are writers' brains better?

Now - you can't assess a brain by how good/bad it is, but you can definitely spot certain traits in people's mindset. The traits and skills that you're developing as a writer are definitely a long-term investment, as they're always going to influence the way you do things. In this article, we learn about the benefits of regular writing on your brain. As already mentioned, the more you write, the better you become and the better traits you develop.

You're Developing Your Imagination and Creativity

When you write, you have to pull out words out of your brain. That is called mental effort, and it's leading directly to the improvement of your cognitive functions. Your creativity, for example, is put into action every time you're writing. In case you're writing fiction, it goes the same with your imagination.

Expands Knowledge and Broadens Outlook

The process of writing starts after the necessary research has been done. This obviously requires reading. When you read, you develop your knowledge in that specific field. When you read again, you're developing it even more.

Professionals writers acquire a lot of knowledge throughout their careers because the entire writing activity is fueled by new information. Moreover, writing allows you to broaden your perspective. You will be able to assess information, events, or actions from different points of view.

Handwriting influences your dexterity, which in its turn increases your IQ. Many studies confirm it, and writers can confirm it too.When you write each day, you'll realize that mental effort doesn't seem so hard anymore.

You'll sometimes notice that you won't have to think too much about what you have to write next.What happens is that your subconscious mind is already doing your job, helping you find the necessary resources to perform your writing.

It Reduces Stress & Helps with Emotional Issues

Did you know that writing makes physical wounds recover faster?An interesting fact to know.Besides the physical side, writing is an excellent remedy for emotional wounds and traumas. When you put your biggest problems on a piece of paper, you're feeling relieved. When you read that paper again, you'll notice improvements since then. Therefore, you'll win the confidence that you're going survive the challenge.

Moreover, a Harvard study suggests that writing will ease your stress big time. Less stress means better productivity and health, so keep writing on your mind whenever you feel the need to "heal".

It Helps You Sort Out Ideas and Express Better

We've asked John Michael, professional writer at Aussiewritings.com, to share his opinion concerning the biggest mental benefit of writing:

I've been a professional writer for over 17 years. Fiction, non-fiction, self-help...you name it, I've done them all.
The biggest observable difference that came as a result of consistent writing was the fact that I learned how to structure what, when, and how I'm about to say something. My communication skills are extremely developed, and I believe it's the persistent and consistent writing that I've been practicing over the years.

Writing has always been an underrated activity, even though it is used as a form of testing throughout every college and institution. Moreover, almost everything on the web takes the form of written content.

E-books, articles, news, tutorials...and the list could go on. If you begin to realize its importance, you'll understand how beneficial it is to make progress on it or maybe make it a daily habit.
