How Becoming A Writer May Be Good For You

So you want to become a writer? Why not? It’s a great career – you can work from anywhere in the world, you decide when you write, and you could even, one day, become rich and famous.

Being a writer myself, I can confirm the benefits – it’s cathartic, it’s a great way to communicate, and it loosens up your brain a little as your creative juices start flowing.

However, scientific studies have also shown that there are many benefits to writing:

No matter the quality of your prose, the act of writing itself leads to strong physical and mental health benefits, like long-term improvements in mood, stress levels and depressive symptoms. In a 2005 study on the emotional and physical health benefits of expressive writing, researchers found that just 15 to 20 minutes of writing three to five times over the course of the four-month study was enough to make a difference.

Writing has been shown to improve your health and can even boost your immune function.
