The therapeutic value of blogging…

The therapeutic value of blogging…

Timo at Heartwood Studios sends me a link to the health benefits of Blogging.

Here is an excerpt from an article from Scientific American – “Blogging – It’s good for you

“Self-medication may be the reason the blogosphere has taken off. Scientists (and writers) have long known about the therapeutic benefits of writing about personal experiences, thoughts and feelings. But besides serving as a stress-coping mechanism, expressive writing produces many physiological benefits. Research shows that it improves memory and sleep, boosts immune cell activity and reduces viral load in AIDS patients, and even speeds healing after surgery”

I am sure those of you who are bloggers don’t need another reason to blog but it is worth reading anyway.

Chocolates are good too. And so is a pitcher of beer. Beer also has therepautical value as the silicon in it is good for bones!

It is nice to know blogging has such great medicinal uses. I like to blog because one day, I will take random entries from my blog post and create a book called — “My blogography”

First let me posit my observation, your posts are evolving better and better – keep it up!

My dad started his blog recently, it is helping him to cope up with his cancer.

Thanks for blogging about this interesting topic.
