Reasons to Write: It Can Save Your Brain!

Mashable has published an interesting article on handwriting. According to Dr Marc Seifer, a graphologist and handwriting expert, writing by hand has the following benefits (italics are mine):

  1. It has a calming effect. And really, who doesn't need that today?
  2. It coordinates the left brain and right brain.
  3. It boosts cognitive skills. Oh good; I need help!
  4. It inspires creativity.
  5. It sharpens aging minds.
  6. It improves memory. But what if you're writing things down as an alternative to actual memory?
  7. It uses more of your brain.
