The Science behind handwritten notes
Do you still have a callous on your middle finger from writing with a pen? I just noticed a few years back that the one I got in high school and college from taking notes and writing exams has disappeared. And in its place, a little further along my fingers, on the inside of my little finger on my right hand I now have a small indent from resting my phone on it when I’m scrolling away.
This 500-year-old journaling technique might just be what you need to finish your day.
Morning routines are all the rage right now, thank you Tim Ferriss, but evening routines… not so much. And, truth be told, they are just as important, if not more than your mornings. Evening routines help me to wrap up my day and prepare for tomorrow. Not in a write a to do list kind of a way, but in a holistic sense of being kind of a way. The unexpected bonus, I sleep much, MUCH, better when I take the 10 minutes or so to officially close my day. This evening routine* is over 500 years old and, in my experience, anything that goes further back than your last mobile phone upgrade is worth looking at.
