small-5Want to keep your mind sharp? Need help winding down at the end of the day? Looking for a way to get your frustrations out (without yelling at someone)? Try writing daily! Before you say that you’re not good at writing, or you don’t like words, there are a few things you might like to know.

Whether you’re an author, an entrepreneur, a student, or even retired, writing has a plethora of benefits you might not have known about, including…

  • Encourages you to relax and wind down from a stressful day.
  • Keeps your mind sharp through learning and exercises.
  • Helps you to practice expression and better express yourself.
  • Gives you a way to help build and improve your creativity.
  • Improves your memory, and helps spark things you may have forgotten.
  • Provides a way to reflect on your thoughts or daily happenings.

Just writing five minutes a day can provide you with all of these benefits, and more! Plus, you can use your writing as a way to log your daily activities, so you always have a written record.

Other ways to stimulate your mind include…

  • Look up a new word daily and use it in a sentence.
  • Research a new topic.
  • Engage in a discussion.
  • Participate in a friendly debate.

That is so true!! Writing daily is the most important thing for me to get my thoughts out of my head. 5 days a week, each morning I write about 600 to 1000 words. After 3 weeks I realise that it easier to write blog post, to find a focus, finde a topic, finish the post. I also get much more things done. And in the evening I feel much better now.


Andrea, the amount you are writing daily is impressive! Thank you for sharing some of the benefits you receive from your writing practice. Blissings, ~ Dena


Dar, reading of your practice of writing about your blog journey inspires me. Your remark that you don't always write a lot each day reminds me of the importance of consistency rather than amount. Writing daily works for some, writing at specific set times each week works for others. I have found it is a commitment to self. I keep such commitments best when I write them into my schedule - making an appointment with myself. I wouldn't blow off a business appointment or lunch with a friend, and it is as important for me to hold myself accountable to my own heart. Blissings, ~ Dena

I do love this post, Dena. It's inspiring, so very helpful. I don't always write a lot each day, but I do try to jot down a few notes. Right now, it's mostly notes on the journey to starting a new blog. I write in a 3-ring binder. It's mostly for me, but I may share it someday if I see that it might help others. ;-)
