A new study from Michigan State University revealed that for chronic worriers, simply writing about your feelings can help you perform better on an upcoming stressful task. Researchers measured participants’ brain activity, and it’s the first neural evidence for the benefits of expressive writing, which takes the edge off of brains so that people can perform tasks with a ‘cooler head.’

One thought on “Wellness Evidence Study: Expressive Writing Helps Chronic Worriers Perform Better”

  1. I have used this process, have begun training to facilitate it, and HIGHLY recommend using the sequence of writing assignments/experiments for surprising improvements in health in all areas. Even if the overall health had not also been true for me, the value of discovering new strengths that are very much a part of a legacy I am proud of would make this profoundly easy to follow, easy to understand. For this purpose there is few awesome books like “Expressive Writing: Words that Heal” by James Pennebaker
