Morning Jog and Blog

December 4, 2008

As I was jogging on my treadmill, I came across an interesting piece in Self magazine by Sheila Monaghan and thought it would be a fun little tidbit to share with Idea Peepshow readers. Monaghan says that blogging is actually good for your health!

Why? She lists these reasons:

  • Sounder Slumber: Blogging about your feelings can bring on relaxation, which helps usher in sleep
  • Improved Immunity: Expressive writing may encourage growth of white blood cells, which fight off infection
  • A Hardy Heart: Writing about emotional topics may lower blood pressue and heart rate, keeping your ticker in better shape

There…I feel more relaxed already!
