Power Up Your Brain

We are all familiar with the popular methods for powering up your brain…exercise, diet and brain activity games.  Have you considered writing to be one of the others?

 

According to increasebrainpower.com, writing is another way to boost those brain cells.

We are told to:

  • Write out your plan
  • Take notes
  • Write your goals
  • Write your synopsis of the situation
  • Formulate your ideas
  • Write your memoirs
  • Journal daily

Presto, magic word – writing!

That’s great news for those with careers as writers. It’s also great for others who use writing for creative purposes, business planning, or goal setting.

Did you know that writing by hand can power up your brain even more?

Handwriting incorporates visual, motor, and cognitive skills.

■· Visual: Seeing what is on the paper in front of you.
■· Motor: Using your fine motor skills to actually put the pen to paper and form the letters to make the words.
■· Cognitive: Remembering the shapes of the letters requires a different type of feedback from the brain. Huffington Post.

You can write stories poems or just keep a journal to do this. Your mind first works to think up the words and then it has to signal your fingers to write them.

    1. Wow, Elizabeth…that is great to hear! I’ll have to tracking myself. Nothing like proof. Thanks so much for commenting.

    1. That’s great, Alecia. I totally agree, it’s just getting them all done before daily life steps in the way. Thanks for commenting.

  1. As you may know, I LOVE to write in my Composition Notebooks! I have written and filled dozens and dozens of them over the last 10 years. I have some dedicated to all kinds of subjects, and some just for daily notes I’m taking about my days and thoughts. I’m sure most would get thrown out after I’m done, but the joy they bring to my own life now is worth me keeping them. Any many times I use them for my second brain because I can flip back over the pages for information I want or to stir up my memories of what happened on some particular days.

    Good to know that hand writing is kicking my brain into gear! LOL

    1. Hi Cathy,

      It’s amazing the things that some of us just do, we now see how a benefit to it. Along with this research that I looked at, I saw many things on “whole brain studies.” It was interesting. Thanks for commenting.

    1. Hi Thanks PJ for visiting and commenting. It still takes me a while to post because I keep going back over checking mistakes…and still don’t get them all.

    1. I know what you mean, Pat. My writing is chicken scratch…but I still do it. Thanks so much for commenting. I really appreciate it.
