3 Ways Writing Makes You More Tolerant and Mindful

For some people writing is a way of earning money while for others it is just a hobby. But everyone should write once in a while because it makes you wiser and more tolerant as well. There are several things one can write about. You can write about your favorite topics, or you can create new stories. You can also write your own story as it can help you reflect on things and can make you a better person. If you are hesitant about sharing your story, you can share it anonymously as well. There are a lot of online platforms out there that let you share your experience as John Doe protecting your identity. In this article, I have mentioned a few ways in which writing helps you become a more mindful person. Let’s take a look:

Brainstorming Ideas

When you are writing about any topic or your life experience, you are juggling with a lot of ideas in your head.  The process of brainstorming does not only help you write a great story, but it also helps you assess your actions and provides you introspection. The more ideas you juggle with, the more perspectives you gain. This can help you become a wise person.

Creates Connection

When you share your experience as a story, it does not matter whether you are doing it openly or anonymously, you will receive feedback. You will be able to come across people who will relate to your experience, and this will help you spark a conversation. This can be really helpful, especially when you are sharing a tough experience like trauma or abuse. Because you get to talk to people who have gone through the same things, which can be very comforting.

Out of the Box Thinking

When you are writing creative stories, you are always looking for narratives. In order to make your story engaging, you will have to add some innovation, and when you start doing it, often, it sharpens your critical thinking. This also makes you better at problem-solving in your day to day life as you start thinking outside of the box more often.
