Taking notes and writing ideas on paper is an attitude that does not seem to disappear at all in the digital age. Some recent studies draw attention to the importance of handwriting and reading on paper. Handwritten notes, like reading a paper book, involve more processing and selection of information than typing from the keyboard.
According to Princeton University – Attention, Students: Put Your Laptops Away – it turns out that those who still use the most “ancient” technique to take notes or read a book, select more the elements to take note of and then have less difficulty in making the transcribed notions their own and “storing” them in the brain. But handwriting also helps develop the brain and keep it healthy (by Karin H.James and LauraEngelhardt) not to mention the benefits of writing, a case of traumatic, stressful, emotional events.
Writing in the digital age on notebooks, diaries, notebooks of the highest quality, which always open perfectly flat, hand-bound in Italy with unique certified or recycled materials can only increase the pleasure of this healthy habit. If you then add your name, a drawing, your favorite quote engraved on the cover of your notebook and maybe a nice photo inside, it will also be a pleasure to always have it with you.
