Whether you’re writing today’s to-do list, planning out your meals for the week or coming up with your next big business idea,
here are 7 reasons you should put Pen to Paper.


Number 1

It Clears Your Mind

You can’t possibly remember every little detail of all the goings-on in your life or all those important things that need doing. This is why writing things down is SO beneficial! Whether it’s a shopping list or an amazing new business idea, if you get it all down on paper, you can go from feeling overwhelmed to a sense of calm. You’ve got this!

Number 2
It’s Kind Of Like Meditation

Putting pen to paper really helps to clear your mind, regain clarity and increase your focus – kind of like meditation! Taking the time to write things down keeps you focused and in the present and ultimately helps keep those stress levels and worries in check. It’s a self-professed form of self-care and is honestly one of the best things you can do.

Number 3
It’s Important For Goal Setting

Goal setting is a great way to help you focus and visualise what you really want. Write it down and plan it out. Seeing it written down will really motivate you to work towards your goal while at the same time keep you accountable so you actually achieve it.

Number 4
It Helps You Stay Focused

Your life is busy, right? Writing your to-do list at the start of each day allows you to stay on track and get the most important tasks done. Prioritising your tasks for the day will help you stay focused and also give you a sense of achievement at the end of the day!

Number 5
It Gives You A Sense Of Accomplishment

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love ticking items off a to-do list! There’s a psychological association between the action of ticking/crossing/highlighting things on your to-do list when you’ve completed them and having that sense of achievement. Try breaking down a larger task into smaller tasks and ticking them off as you go, you’ll be surprised how it will motivate you to keep going!

Number 6
It Sparks Creativity

Putting pen to paper allows your mind the space to open up to new possibilities. Whether you’re brainstorming a new idea or journaling your thoughts, writing by hand encourages your creative juices to start flowing. You can draw pictures, create shapes or simply doodle to bring your mind back into the moment.

Number 7
It Makes You Happier and Keeps You Motivated

When you start to write down your goals, dreams and thoughts regularly, you’ll start to feel more motivated and happier. Even if it’s completely nonsensical, writing down your thoughts for the day, including any stresses, frustrations and disappointments, you’ll start to feel lighter and brighter.
