Continue reading to find out how writing actually makes me happier and smarter.  It can make you healthier, happier, smarter, and more persuasive.  Being happy is healthy and being smarter is sexy, so stay with me here.  

Now, the nitty gritty.  In order for you to start seeing the effects in your blogging or essay writing, you have to be consistent. You should not only be consistent but you should thrive to write the best way you can.  One great way to improve your essay writing is to get help from others. Some experienced essay writers from services, like EssayService.com,could help with solving your academic problems by creating an essay in a proper way. 

So here are the ways that, according to science, even your life can be improved with writing. 

Writing makes you happier                                                                                                             

According to experts, expressive writing is a great way to motivate ourselves.  Oh, what is expressive writing, you ask?  This refers to expressing your feelings, thoughts, and experiences through writing. Pretty easy, right?

For instance, you can keep a diary.  You bring out your inner voice to narrate all the events that you went through.  Besides this, you honestly express how you felt and what you thought.   This constant state of mind increases your chances of happiness.

Another form of expressive writing is goal setting.  Not only will setting a goal keep you motivated towards it but will also help you connect with such goal.  This is a proved way to stay happy. 

Writing makes you think better and faster

Constant writing can help you improve the mechanism of your thoughts.  You will find out that when you first start writing, you might get it a little rough.  That is ok.  You see, the hardest part of getting something done is actually starting.  But once you have started, it gets easier. 

As you go on with it on a regular basis, writing actually becomes easier.  This is because you are training your brain to think faster.  Our lives are filled with problems waiting to be solved.  The dexterity with which you do this will help you reach happiness.  In other words, that sensation of relief that you get after solving an issue will be a repeated event in your life. 

It can help you with your studies

This is where you wanted to land.  When it comes to studying, you want to be smarter.  When you write, you are helping your brain develop the logical functions it needs to solve academic problems.  Studies relating to this specifically refer to the learning of sciences and mathematics.

Besides this, essay writing is a practice that gets better with practice.  You are on a road of producing the best essays ever.  

Writing will improve your communication

Remember what we said about getting the boy or girl of your dreams?  Well, writing is an excellent exercise to help you organize your thoughts.  You become more keen on expressing your feelings and sharing your experiences. It pretty much sucks not being able to communicate your ideas!

You have a lot of ideas in your head, there is no question to that.  But you are constantly getting this “it sounded better in my head” thing.  This is because you cannot just jumble out everything that just pops into your bed.  You need to have the ability to filter and process what it is in your mind before putting them into words.  

You will more easily get through tough times

Writing about traumatic events is a very powerful way of coming to terms with what happened and accepting it.  Whatever situation you are going through, write about it.  Just let the words come out through the pen (or through the keyboard).   Keep this journal with you.

Take a look at it after an hour has passed.  Look at it again after a day, after a week.  By that time, your mood would have changed.  This will be motivational as you will be inspired by the fact that everything turned out to be ok.  

Get started

Yes, I know that getting started is not as easy as it seems.  Starting a habit and then sticking to it is pretty challenging.  But you have to start somehow.  All it takes is a little determination at any moment. So, go ahead, grab a pen (or, let´s be real: turn on the computer) and take action.  

Just commit yourself to one thing.  Start doing expressive writing.  Write down all your thoughts, ideas, feelings, etc.  You will notice that as days pas by, it will become easier every time.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood?

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Why Writing Actually Makes Me Happier and Smarter

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Why Writing Actually Makes Me Happier and Smarter

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
