Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in our society. And rightly so, of course. It has so many benefits! Not only for the environment, but also for the wallet. And just for the sake of convenience. Because what is useful about having to replace things after a short time? Nothing! Consider, for example, the amount of notebooks you chase through for school or work. That must be more than you actually realize. That is why it is wise and convenient to use a durable notebook!
Of course, we are also making more and more use of computers and laptops, on which we can easily (and quickly!) Note things down. But if you have a meeting and are talking to people, do you really want such a screen in front of you? It is not very personal and it will not benefit your conversation. There are even more objections, see below.
By taking notes by hand, you remember the things you write down easier than when you type it. The process stimulates part of the brain that it Reticular Activating System hot. This system is actually a kind of brain filter for it recording information. If you write something down, this system picks it up extra well.
Many good and well-known writers write by hand. Because you write slower, your imagination also better the chance to optimal to work. It also ensures that you think better about what you actually write down.
New technologies give us the opportunity to do more things at the same time, but by nature humans are just not good at it multitasking. Ultimately, we can only really focus on one thing, so that we largely forget the rest around us. At the writing by hand don't get distracted. You are busy with one thing and can therefore do it well. You already have your concentration needed to write texts by hand.
If you write by hand a lot, slow down you it aging process of the brain. You train your visual, motor and mental abilities. Also, the intelligence of a person higher when the person writes a lot by hand. So you can literally get smarter of writing by hand.
Putting a complex issue or problem on paper makes it a lot easier. You can look at it from a distance, as it were. So create you rest for yourself and a solution comes to you faster.
It is not said for nothing. By writing down all your thoughts, feelings and questions, you literally give it a place and you can let it go better. This applies to both private and work-related fantasies.
Very well! 😊
We recommend using the combination of working digitally as much as possible and the advantages of writing by hand. This way you save paper, money and distraction while doubling your efficiency (and that of your colleagues or employees).
Our tip: use digital work for, for example, invoices, contracts, correspondence and communication. For notes and notes we recommend a durable notebook (such as our own brand or another brand you like). This way you can write by hand to your heart's content and without guilt for optimal concentration, efficiency and focus. 😉
