It's good for you!
Isn't it funny how we pick and choose among available "expert" studies related to health and well being.
Sometimes I make lifestyle choices because of science but mostly I just tend to to pat myself on the back whenever something I am already doing turns out to be healthy.
For instance, blogging---to quote this week's issue of Newsweek. "My Shrink Says...Blog!"
The article begins, "Why do people write confessional blogs? It's a creative outlet. It's a forum to vent. It's an exercise in exhibitionism. To mental-health experts, though, it's more than that: a blog is medicine. Psychiatrists are starting to tout the therapeutic power of blogging, and many have begun incorporating it into patient treatment."
So, there you go, gentle readers, the health benefits of blogging.
