The Power of Hand Writing!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Hope all of you are keeping well and happy. Today I thought of  Writing about the value of writing by hand. As in this increasing digital age, so many have, and are turning to type and swipe, on the computers, laptops, I pads and phones than using pencils or pens to write by hand. In my case I do use all that but, have always liked to write by pens and pencils too from my school days, and still continue to write using my various pens to write. How many of you still still love Writing by hand?

W 1

A study in psychological science has been found that students who take down notes by hand, rather than by laptops are better able to remember and grasp the subject. This is because when we are Writing by hand we tend to concentrate and write slowly, be more selective, rephrase and summarise, and choose the most important information, to include in the notes. This makes the brain works more efficiently and we are able to understand the content clearly and memorize better 🙂

W 3a
The studies with small kindergarten children also showed that, those who learnt the alphabet by Writing exercises, learnt it faster and better than those learning from the key board system. On the whole children both young and old, acquired a better understanding of the language, and were better able to express more ideas with a multitude of  Words !

Writing  journaling are excellent ways for understanding and recovering from stress and Trauma ! In my opinion, the best way to put the mind in order is writing out what is going on in the mind. Typing out also yes but, “Writing  by hand puts in that extra effort and forces out something from inside of you, that cannot really happen from typing” As the hand yields to the emotions inside of you, and helps better to let go or organize your mind in a much better way ❤W 4aaEvidence from new research show the psychological benefits of handwriting. How those who wrote by hand, were more likely to find relief from anxiety, fear and worry than those tapping on a computer. It also shows that jotting down our thoughts and feelings not only help people understand and recover from stress and Healing ~ Trauma ! but also help those with chronic conditions such as asthma and arthritis, those recovering from surgery and even those battling terminal or life-threatening diseases !

W 14

The fact that some who rarely or never use handwriting as an outlet to express themselves, is a sad fact as journaling is so helpful in clarifying one’s thoughts!

W 9

Writing by hand is a very personal and creative experience. I know as I am very fond of writing by hand. It helps one to be more aware of what is going on in the mind and helps the mind to stay in balance, healthy and happy. So why don’t you try too? If by now if you have not tried 😛

Things We Love to Do!

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

I have been talking about the things we really like to do, and I came across these really wonderful picture quotes that I thought of posting them for your knowledge and enjoyment. The last few articles have been rather serious, as the subject of mental health is quite a heavy subject. So for a break I felt like writing something more light hearted and relaxing, as life is not only to live well but, to enjoy, have fun and be happy too. To be able to be really happy, is to be able to, “Do what You really Like” 🙂

ZZZ 5a
There are lot of things we can do in life. There is a saying, “Just to eat, drink and pay the bills is not a way to live”. And of course all of us are doing many things to keep ourselves occupied, to keep us going. Being on the blogs itself is proof that we are out and about in learning new things and moving on in life without stagnating ❤

ZZZ 8a
There are many things we can do to Relax and be Happy, but it depends on what each of us like and want to do, according to our own personality ❤

ZZZ 16a

We all have our own talents, gifts that we can make use of, to keep us active, happy and also to earn our living 🙂

ZZZ 7

I enjoy doing a lot of activities, both indoor and outdoor. Sometimes a little too much for my age but I like to keep myself active. Today too even though it is winter and cold, I braved the weather and did my front garden. I also enjoy cooking, housework as I love to keep a neat house, reading and music my favourite topics, chakra dancing for therapy and exercises, Mandala art for relaxing the mind and well…. the list goes on 😛

ZZZ 17a

What are the things you Love to do? Think. Are you doing them? At least some of them or even one? Sometimes we forget or don’t pay attention, to do the things we like to do. As I said it need not be a Hobby as such, but anything that Relaxes you, make you Happy and Calm. Doing what we like need not be big things that takes up a lot of money, but even small things, to distract us from unnecessary issues and keep us going. As it is, our life and others can help us but, only we can choose what we like to do to make us Happy, that will lead to our goals and have a Happy ending 🙂

ZZZ 15
I am sure you enjoyed reading and looking at all the beautiful pictures quotes that has been posted. Please share and pass it on for those who can benefit from what I have written. Thank you for reading ❤

Those who like poetry can have a look at some of my creations of, little poems that I write on my personal website:https://www.facebook.com/deepa.nilamani

Hello To All My Dear Readers ❤

Today I am writing about what each of us are born to do, or why each of us are born for. We all know that we are all born for some specific purpose. As each one of us are different from each other, and have a unique personality of our own, our purpose is completely different to each other too. There maybe similarities, but never exactly the same. For example see how many of us write blogs here, we writers are all sorts. Each of us have our own style of writing and our own topics. Same with other things too. So how do we find or know what our purpose is? Some are born with a gift a talent. But others?

Cover 12

Everyone has something that they really like to do, that excites them even thinking about it. Those who love to read cannot put down a book until they have finished. Those who love to write keep on writing, and they get lost in what they do and even loose track of time. Scientists, inventors, artists and other various people work into the wee hours into the morning, or even through out the night days on end, tirelessly as they enjoy what they are doing. So all of us have what is called the passion, which leads us on our own path into our destiny 🙂

A 144
So when we follow our passion, how do we know it is the right or the wrong path. As I wrote before, passion is what keeps us moving ahead no matter what. There will be obstacles, there may be others who will not understand or/and even criticize what you are doing. But they wont understand what you like to do as it is what only you like to do. No two people do the same thing the same way!

A 146

When we are going ahead in the journey of our life, we will meet other travelers along the way. As in life we all are moving ahead doing what we like along our own paths. From time to time people will cross our paths, from some we will learn lessons while others will learn from us. Some will walk for a long way with us while others will part sooner. However it is, we end up walking alone in our path, as it is our path and ours alone 🙂

with shoes in hand on the field

We all start walking along our path following our passion towards achieving our goals. As we go along there will be many changes along the way, as that is how life is. There will be detours, even additions to what we already want to do, and sometimes it might end up in a way, a place that we never ever dreamt of. This is the beauty of life, as life is a fascinating mystery. But to achieve all that, “We need to be brave and strong” to face all weathers along the way, as all good things require hard work, dedication and sacrifice. Although we never thought of ending up in a castle, it might be that, ultimately we have been directed to a magical place we never had thought of. Believe me it does happen 🙂

A 143
So in life, we need to put in hard work. Experience good things as well as bad things. Pain and suffering too, as it is through pain that we let go of the unwanted, to make room for the new things and people in the next level. The challenges we face make us strong and resilient to do more and better things, for ourselves and others in the world. As in the end it is not just for us, we need to make the world a better place as, “We are all one big family in The Universe” Why? Because we are all energy and part of The Universe!

Thank you for reading. Hope you learnt something and enjoyed reading this. Please share and pass on to others for their benefit too ❤

Thanking the I net for the pictures ❤

Hello To All My Dear Readers 🙂

As you all can see, I have taken a long time to write an article since the last one, End of A Very Long Journey ! This is mainly because after that end, I still had not found any, New Beginnings ! to write about. As always a beginning has to follow an end. Not knowing how to start writing again, I have looked in to this topic about, “The writer’s block” Well it seems to be that I fall under some of the views that is being said here !

block-3

There seems to be many different views by different people. Some do apply to me and maybe some of you also may come across these sometimes ? I found it an interesting topic and decided to write, as somehow I wanted to get back in to writing, and this is one of the advice I found, and hopefully this will help me to be posting articles here again 😛

block-4

I guess almost all of you are aware that when we write, we tap our inner wisdom and its almost like someone helping or dictating words to us. In my case I hear some words being prompted, and also almost like being whispered and I found that this was actually missing since recently. I found this quote to support what I am saying 😛

block-7

As I wrote at the beginning, nothing new has happened to me to write about. No one has asked any questions nor given any suggestions either. And as we all know sometimes how ever much we try, there is that specific time for anything to happen, and I have found that it applies for writing too 🙂

block-2

According to the above quote it says, writing block doesn’t exist, but then being unable to write and being stuck I feel it is some sort of a block. From what I have read and know, we all need a break from our usual routine to relax and charge our batteries as well as find new and fresh ideas. So it is for writing as I have found in this quote which says what to do and what not to do !

block-1

I am more on to the way of a perfectionist and this also is a reason that sometimes I take my own time to do things, as what ever I do, I want it to be that perfect piece of work, so writing also comes under that. I wonder how many of you share this trait with me ?

block-8

Although it is mentioned as a block, somehow I have managed to write an article about, “The Writer’s Block” itself. Yes it does go quiet unable to think of what to write and then it has come back suddenly, my head filled up with this topic that pushed me to write again which is a great relief 🙂

block-5

This is a time I have asked myself, “Why do I write” I started to write my story of becoming well and to share my experiences and knowledge for the benefit of others. At the same time writing/journaling is therapeutic to the mind. Writing is the only way, that you can pull out the feelings that are buried deep within your mind. It helps to declutter and reorganize yourself to begin a new chapter again. The quote below by, “Anne Frank” also says the same thing !

block-10

So when we write, it is our life, our own story that we write. It is known to us only and we write how and when we want to. Writing is being free, as we are all born free and being free is what makes us happy and joyful that leads us to find peace in our hearts, our ultimate goal in life 🙂

block-6

Then do we always become successful and popular writers ?  Or do we write because we like to write, to put forth our ideas that flood into out minds ?

block-9

So the answer is above, I am not sure if I should say we. But this applies to me, as I don’t earn anything from writing here, and sometimes there is hardly any response but yet I go on writing, because I like to write. I hope those of you read will give, some of your ideas/views on this ?

I hope you all enjoyed reading this article and share the same views with me, or anything new you can contribute ? For more information on writing, you can also look up my other article of, All About Writing !

Thank you all for reading. You may share and/or pass it on for others who will like and benefit from what I have written ❤

And thanking all the quotes I have shared from the I net ❤

P.S This is my latest update. As I have completely recovered and living free of depression, I needed a distraction, and to do something new and different. I have always liked poems and poetry, and I had this beautiful poem about the tree that I just started with that. But since then slowly I have begun to write my own little poems. Not only that, I was going beyond that and almost like catching up for lost time, the time I was down and was stagnating !!!
I was getting this strong need to express myself through creativity. My mind started to run into old interests and hobbies that I used to do. They have been growing in silence, and suddenly they have raised their heads up, pushing me to break through and open up myself to the world of color back again 🙂

Hello My Dear Readers 🙂

Its three months since I started this blog, my writing style has improved. I am gathering more information and expanding my knowledge. So this article is all about, “How I started to write. After I overcame depression, I have been impatient to move on to do more things. I could not really think of something to do, to my satisfaction and was getting restless. Do not get confused with the word restlessness here, with frustration 🙂
In psychology, frustration is a common emotional response to opposition. Related to anger and disappointment, where as restlessness that I am talking about here is wanting to do more, to move on, being impatient, which makes your mind work to its fullest to look for answers. Being restless does bring about good results !

A 133
I had been writing on my Face Book pages and slowly improving but that was not enough for me. I wanted to do more. Wanting to do more is how I happened to start this blog. It seems that I had been developing myself gradually over the years, but was not aware of it until I did get down to write here. And now, I have found that I love to write and writing is my passion. Its very satisfying and enjoyable. For everyone there is something unique one can do, and for me I finally found that writing is my calling . A Calling is what you really want to do that makes you feel fulfilled and happy 🙂

A 23
What each of us write is unique to each other. As no two people have the same experiences the knowledge nor does their minds work the same way. In short each one has their own personality and how they write is different to each other !

A 22a
The use of words also is very important. As there are many whose first language is not English, or what ever the language you write in. So when you use very advanced words, the flow of the reading gets disturbed. As the mind stops, to understand, to think. Then there is a break, a disturbance. The words has to be written in such a way that one follows the next just like flowing of a natural spring. Even like music harmonious, the words blending to each other, pleasant to the eye and even to the ears if read aloud 🙂

A 26
 I have found out, the more you write the more you get better at it, just like most other things in life. This is also the advice given by, other writers like, “Jane Austen”. So if you are keen to write, keep on writing 🙂

A 22
Before writing its very important that you read a lot. As you need to be very fluent in the language you write. All these words that flow comes from our memory bank. In my case, from far as I can remember, my parents had read to me. I have been surrounded by books, so it is now. Books are my passion and reading is one of two main hobbies. Even if I go to the shops, my first stop is the book shop. This has continued from my childhood to past my mid years now. So much so when I write I almost hear words being prompted to me, almost as someone is saying them from inside. I hear some of the words, as if someone is dictating while I write as even I don’t know that I knew some of the words that I hear. Like now I am just writing non stop, and very often I hardly have the need even to edit, other than a small typing mistake as I am typing very fast. Writing is a part of me, and I am a part of writing !!!

AAA 23a
Why we write. Its because we have so much inside that we can share with others. Each person does their own way, how they know, what their talents are. Some write, some paint, some are musicians and each one paints the world with their own colours and make the world beautiful and better place to live in 🙂

AAA 22a
Writing helps to know yourself better. To find out who you are, what makes you happy or unhappy. What your strengths and weaknesses are. Through this you clarify your thoughts and feelings. Writing or journaling is the best way to organise the inside of your minds. As you write daily your thoughts your feelings, you find out things that even you didn’t know about yourselves. And then you know how to rectify/sort out them. So writing helps to reduce stress and is very therapeutic in relaxing and healing yourself 🙂

AAA 15
Writing helps the writer as well as many others, who read their experiences, stories and get to know their knowledge. As in one life time we cannot have all the experiences in all the fields. Even what I write naturally is a combination of endless books I have read, others experiences and knowledge gathered over many years 🙂

AAA 16
As always in life, unless we try we don’t know if something works or not. Even if we do not succeed at the first attempt or the second, we need to keep on trying. For some they know from the very beginning as they are born talented. Some find out in their later years. For some like me I had to finish my duties in life before I found out what exactly I was meant to do. And as my mind was not free I was unable to really know my true calling. So this is why, you need to be at peace so that hear from within the answers you are looking for. For each of us its a different calling, but the main thing is to keep on trying. As its never too late for anything as long as we are alive 🙂

AAA 20
Since I started to write, I have found out that in the past, the whole time I had been working and  planning things inside my head. Quite a few have been telling me to write, but didn’t really get down seriously into it. And then one day, I do happen to start, Bang. And now I have found why I have always been thinking and planning inside my head. The reason my need was to put out what was working within and the best way was to, put my thoughts into words in writing 🙂

A 25I hope you found this article interesting, and what I have written will be useful to some of you to find out your passion, and your calling too. I have found that this is a wonderful way to share what I know and keep myself occupied too. Please do share and/or pass it on for others also who can benefit from what I have written. Those of you who want to read another article about writing, can check up my article on, Writer’s Block ? Thank you all for reading 🙂

Hello To All My Dear Readers. 🙂

World 4a

I started this blog to spread the message on mental wellness. We all go through some form of difficulties in Life. And I too have gone through mine. Due to the ups and downs I went through one after the other, suddenly the last incident pushed me to a break down, and I became a victim of depression. For fifteen years I battled depression as well as bipolar disorder. Since  middle of June 2014 I was cleared from counselling, being said that I had come back to normal by my psychiatrist. A word I never expected to have heard in my entire life. Suddenly the clouds had moved away, and out came the sun. The world opened up to me 🙂
Knowing what it is be depressed, and because of the stigma attached to it, many do not want to go for treatment, making it worse and even ending their valuable lives. Getting out of long term depression is like a miracle. There were so many who asked how and also my doctor encouraged me to write, for the benefit of others. The reason I started this blog is, I want to show the world that depression can be overcome and even Bipolar disorder can be controlled. And being mentally ill is no different to being physically ill. As mind and body are together. Mental illness also can be cured or controlled and they also can be normal as everyone to live with dignity in the world 🙂
I am studying psychology ~ counselling and psychotherapy, at the moment to give back the knowledge and experiences I acquired. But make note that, this is not exactly counselling, but this is, “My Journey on how I overcame depression and mood disorder” I hope all those reading my blog will learn something new, or remember what you already know. And make use of them to lead a better and happier life 🙂

P.S This is my latest update. It’s almost three years since I wrote this, and today it’s the 20th of May 2018. I have completely recovered and living free of depression now, that means it has gone into remission 🙂
I will be updating some of the old articles with my new knowledge and added experiences and also for the benefit of those who are new to the blog, as well as to confirm that it is possible to overcome and become completely well too. Now that my mood is even more uplifted, my choice of colours and posts have changed too accordingly. My eye goes to new pictures that resonate with how I am feeling now that I am feeling very much positive than when I was feeling unwell.. It does happen. You too can come out into the light and live Happily 🙂

So this is my other website: https://deepanilamani.com/home/
