Handwriting improves health
A new study finds that the expression of emotions on paper encourages more rapid and effective treatment of wounds, not only emotionally but also physically.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. It was attended by about 50 people. They were divided into two groups, one of which should have a paper describing the experience for three days. They recorded all the traumatic events leading to stress, then shared what emotions experienced during this time. Participants are encouraged to be open and forthright in his confession. Many of them shared thoughts long kept secret.
The second group had to describe their thoughts, but without showing emotions and feelings. Two weeks later, the researchers took samples of participants who had wounds in one form or another. The results showed that 76% of the participants in the first group of the wounds healed completely compared with 42% in the second group of participants.
