Writing Articles Online Will Help Your Memory and Cognitive Skills

August 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 495

Back when I was in high school and college I was a spectacular athlete, and I'm not afraid to say so now. At the time, it might not been inappropriate, as it would have shown an inflated ego, but I was pretty good. After I retired, I tried something new, something I wasn't very good; writing. You know what I noticed after writing for seven years now? I noticed that the writing has changed the way my brain is formatted, although I am still good at the same things I was before, I now have a new set of skills.

I am blown away by how it has improved my memory and cognitive skills. You might not think that writing online articles isn't going to help your brain work better, but as a case study, or a human guinea pig in this case, it certainly has helped me. No, I didn't come from a genetically inferior family when it comes to brain power, but something had clicked along the way. The nearest I can figure is that by preparing online articles, and coming up with new content, I have forced myself to keep a better memory, and recall things in the past, events, and experiences to put into articles.

There is something else, and I read this a long time ago from a very famous writer, but didn't realize what he meant until now. He said; "some people think to write, and others write to think," and you know what, he's correct. Writing really will help you think, because it makes you think while you are writing.

Putting thoughts into words is very difficult. The mind thinks in three dimensions, as is our life experience, but to transfer that into the proper words out of an ever expanding mental dictionary, and type it onto a 2-D plane from a keyboard, or using voice recognition software requires a lot more cognitive focus.

Am I suggesting that; "the more you write, the smarter you get," well, I suppose it depends on what you are writing, and reading some of the social networking tweets, perhaps not so much. But if you are writing online articles on a topic that you are passionate about, believe in, and have a good deal of expertise in, you will have to push the boundaries of your knowledge and abilities to get that done.

The harder you push, the farther you are extending your writing ability and thinking process. Therefore, I have concluded that writing online articles will not only help you with your memory, but it will give you with a rather large uptick in cognitive skills. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
