It’s simple, but monumental. A good, smooth, fancy pen holds the ability to transform your mood in an instant. Paired with your favorite custom notebook, you’ll never want to stop writing down all your brilliant ideas.
In a recent study published in Psychological Science, researchers explored the effects of note taking in writing versus typing on a laptop. They found that those who wrote down their notes on paper were more selective with the words they wrote causing them to retain the more important information. Those who typed out their notes ended up writing almost everything they could which actually led to a decrease in retention.
The moral of the story… Pen and paper won’t ever go out of style.
