Keeping your thoughts and ideas in writing is one of the best ways to stay organised, and there are few better tools for this than the humble pen and paper. Here are some of the reasons why you should write down your thoughts when you’re trying to organise them, whether it’s at work or in your personal life.
A study from American University found that when people organize their thoughts and experiences on paper, they have a clearer idea of what’s going on in their lives. Not only does it provide a much-needed break from the world around you, but it can also help you think more clearly about your day-to-day interactions.
Being busy means being creative, getting things done and not having time to sit down and write down your thoughts. However, you need a moment every now and then to take some time out for yourself. Not just because it’s important for your mental health but because of how useful it is to keep track of all the little things that are going on in your life.
You may not believe it, but your brain is capable of remembering only so much. According to Dr. Gordon Neufeld, there are two things that limit your brain’s capacity to store information: Attention span and concentration span. It’s often hard for our brains to stay focused on one subject for an extended period of time (this phenomenon is known as task-switching) which is why writing down our thoughts forces us to focus on one specific topic at a time.
If you want to improve the way you remember things, be more productive, or just feel like a better human being in general, then you need to start writing down your thoughts. Not only is it going to help you with your day-to-day life, but it will also relieve some of the weight that has been carried on your shoulders and put more positivity in your life.
