Why to write that kind of book?
Why do we feel it is important to encourage picking up a pen and writing? Writing by hand possesses a special power, no matter how many important thoughts, wishes, analyses, and goals we might outline inside the head. Various experiments have shown that writing by hand helps us formulate our thoughts more precisely; in addition, the information we write stays in our memory longer (compared to writing on a computer). Paper and pen improve our abilities to concentrate and focus; moreover, writing down our inner negative experiences lower their importance and, subsequently, the stress levels in our bodies, flourishing creative energy. Writing by hand every now and then is also a workout for our brain: during the process, specific parts in our brain, responsible for speech, memory and thinking, are activated. It turns out that writing by hand can be a tool to maintain youth – not to mention the major changes a written word may bring in your life. At least within this book.
