Writing is not only a hobby, but also a good mental exercise. You are an author, but you don’t write every day? Well, you should. Here is why.
- Words are the writer’s most important tool – so it can be a problem if you are writing a book but you cannot find the right words to express your ideas. If you write every day, you will never run out of words. Try to learn a new foreign word a day and to use it in sentence. In this way, you will expand your vocabulary.
- You have trouble waking up in the morning? Then, find the time to write down a few sentences. This is an incredible way to take your mind off your problems and to have a good start to the day. In the morning, write about positive experiences – this will positively influence your life.
- Writing in the mornings is fun and good gymnastics for the brain, as it boosts your creativity. It is also a good wake-up call. You should always have writing materials next to your bed, so you can write whenever you feel like. Last but not least: let your imagination go wild!
- Writing at night is as useful as writing in the mornings. You should try the Three Blessings Exercise, developed by Martin Seligman, a famous psychologist and author. The exercise is simple. Every night, ask yourself what three things happened in your day for which you feel blessed and grateful. Add why they happened to you. This re-educates your attention toward the positive.
