When blog authors write with conviction, we’re often moved by their words. In fact, some of the best blog posts I’ve read are so raw with emotion, I actually feel the author’s pain.
Granted, these are probably the most difficult blog posts to write, however, by penning our deep rooted feelings, we’re releasing that pain into blogosphere. Not only can that be therapeutic, but it may have an additional benefit, as well.
As a subscriber to the Real Age newsletter, an article in a recent issue caught my attention. In part it said:
Do It Write
Take time every day to jot down your worries or note how you’re feeling. People with insomnia who did this as part of a study fell asleep faster than the people who wrote about their hobbies or didn’t write at all. Writing may help you process some of the thoughts that are keeping you up at night
With so many blog authors writing about their daily concerns, business worries, health issues and thinking errors, might this be true?
Could blogging actually be the answer to those who have insomnia?
What do you think?
Does blogging about everyday concerns help you to sleep better?
Might blogging have additional (mental and.or physical) health benefits?
Has blogging been therapeutic for you? Are you resting easier at night? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
