JJust like athletic training, we can exercise and strengthen our minds. It only takes a few minutes of training each day to break bad habits, manage emotions better and increase productivity. One of the essential tools for improving mental health is writing. So grab some paper and pen and take notes. Your journey to a happier, stronger mindset starts now!
Positivity belongs on paper
OOptimism enables us to improve our overall mindset and as a result, our performance! Recent studies find that recording our positive experiences magnifies feel-good moments, so why not keep a small journal or sketchbook in your bag so you can jot down all of your success stories? Did you have a great day? Then write it down!
Paper supports our goals
AAccording to a study done by Gail Matthews, those who write down their goals accomplish them significantly more often than those who don’t. When writing down our wishes and dreams we make them more concrete in our mind than when we just think about them. Plus by having them in black and white, we can revert to our plans any time we need a reminder.
So the next time you are tempted to get discouraged, don’t! Grab a notebook instead and power up your mental health today!
