New-fashioned Writing Instruments
Writing helps me remember things way better than typing does. In "Write It Down, Make It Happen," author Henriette Anne Klauser says that your brain works overtime when you write, sending a signal to the cerebral cortex saying: “Wake up! Pay attention! Don’t miss that detail!” When you’re writing by hand, you’re taking your time. When you’re typing, you’re often distracted because it’s happening so fast. Wait…what? (See 8 Ways Technology Makes You Stupid).
For the sake of science, don’t ditch your pens, except for your old pens. You know, the ones that are boring.
