Benefits of writing by hand and writing therapy…

Deakin University has discovered through research that writing by hand for 15-20 minutes a day can lead to a healthier and more balanced state of mind.

Only confirming what many other universities around the world have been studying since the 1980s. But now, studies have found that writing by hand provides a feeling of well being if done every day. I would add to this if you write about stress or bad personal experiences, or memories you can’t get rid of or anxiety or depression every day, you will experience freedom from these through this process.

This is all writing therapy. Officeworks now runs a mini workshop called “Time to Write” which shows how much writing therapy has permeated the mainstream now. I am very happy to see it. 🙂 When I discovered writing therapy by accident (2008) and then after found it was an established therapy, there was no one or only a few academics in Australia talking about it.

Things have changed dramatically, and I am glad because more people can see the benefit of writing therapy. Feel free to contact me for further information and have a look around this site for more information. Thanks for reading. 🙂
