How does the Act of Writing Affect the Brain? Infographic

Since the start of this blog in March of 2010, I have taken several courses in the brain and its function in the human body. I thought it would be interesting and might offer some clues on losing weight and being healthy. Well, it did. I am fascinated by this amazing little organ that weighs only three pounds but, literally, runs our entire body.

Since a lot of my readers are also fellow bloggers (writers) I thought you might be interested in this infographic on the brain.

  1. I liked the idea of stream of consciousness writing as a form of meditation. Thanks for the post, Tony!

    Hi Tony, you’re a wealth of information as always thanks for this. I find that writing and reading does put me in the ‘zone’ and it is meditative and soothing. Something about reading from paper still appeals rather than reading on a computer screen which isn’t nearly as relaxing
