Reasons Not To Abandon The Art of the Handwritten Letter

0-255449703-fotolia-71247521-subscription-monthly-m

Nowadays we rarely pick up a pen and paper to communicate with one another, but it might not be wise for us to trade this long-standing, cultural practice entirely for the convenience of text messages and emails.

Research has shown that the general act of writing by hand can promote quite a few physical and mental benefits, from improving learning abilities to fostering a more positive outlook on life. And when it comes to writing that is used as a form of communication between two people, namely letters and postcards, the impact of such messages lasts far longer than any alternative version offered in our high-tech world. From the careful intentions of the sender to the value experienced by the receiver, no true match exists for this old-time, traditional means of conversation.

Whether you’re trying to cultivate a little romance, nurture a friendship or simply stay connected with loved ones while abroad, here are nine reasons you should still send a letter or postcard once in a while.

 

They create lasting memories.

Studies have revealed an association between writing by hand and brain development and cognition, increasing neural activity more than typing can. Just as learning by handwriting notecards and study guides proves more effective for students, the moments you commit to paper for others are more likely to stay stored in your own memory as well, allowing you both to reflect back and appreciate them again in the future.

They show how much you care.

In the days of oversimplified communication, receiving a “just to say hi” email can feel like a big deal. So imagine the powerful message you convey when you actually write out your thoughts for another person by hand, purchase a stamp, physically deliver your note to a mailbox and wait days for your special someone to receive it. Their beaming smile at your thoughtfulness will say it all.

They make you feel good.

Aside from the residual satisfaction of knowing you’re making a close friend’s day with your efforts, science has linked expressive writing to better mood, reduced stress and improved overall sense of well-being. Similar to keeping a gratitude journal or writing about your future goals, sharing your genuine thoughts with another person can be quite the morale booster — not to mention a mini adrenaline rush as you drop the final draft into the mailbox.

They make every word count.

Postcards only offer so many square inches, forcing the sender to truly think about the message they want to share and how they want to phrase it. Unlike with a quick text or Facebook message, you only have one chance when you send a handwritten message, so you learn just how important it is not to let it go to waste.

They spark creativity.

Taking to pen and paper utilizes the visual, motor and cognitive brain processesdifferently than when we recruit technology to help us out. It is also by nature more labor-intensive, requiring us to slow down and connect the mind with the hand, one word at a time. Together these factors can make the sensory experience of writing just what you need to get those creative juices flowing.

They require your undivided attention.

By recruiting all of the senses to participate in the writing-by-hand process, little room is left for multitasking (or hyper-speed task switching). To write thoughtfully and coherently, we must focus on the present moment and contemplate — without side conversations or other to-do list items taking priority — the thoughts we’re aiming to coherently convey to the person on the receiving end of the letter.

They require unplugging.

Let’s face it — we could all use a little extra screen-free time these days. By nature of sitting down to write a thoughtful note to a special someone, your thumbs won’t be able to scroll your Facebook feed or type out a text message to another friend in demand of your attention. For those few minutes, you will live entirely in the present moment and in the thoughts you’re putting on paper.

They honor tradition.

There’s something sacred (and romantic, in the broadest sense) about communicating in the way generations before us once did. We’ve all heard the stories: It’s how your parents communicated with Santa Claus, it’s how grandma and grandpa kept their love alive during wartime, it’s how immigrant families and friends separated by their respective moves shared written snapshots of their new lives. Computers and smartphones may prove more efficient, but they can never take the place of this kind of sentimental history.

They’re timeless.

“A letter always seemed to me like immortality because it is the mind alone without corporeal friend.” — Emily Dickinson

Long after they are written and sent (and even after their senders and receivers are gone), letters and postcards remain to be read, appreciated and preserved. Whether displayed on museum shelves honoring famous historical figures or saved in a scrapbook between two old friends, letters protect the memories of lives lived in a way that technological communication cannot. They are tangible, personal and real, in every sense of the word.

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    Q: I'm writing to you to ask your advise as to what would constitute a beneficial regimen,(SP?), for my 27 year old nephew who suffers from psoriatic arthritis and is currently on a program of methatrexate infusions every eight weeks. His lifestyle is fairly hectic as he's hoping to receive a professorship in the next two years and he is currently working all the time in a physics lab and continuously has things other than his personal care on his mind. For these reasons I've decided to try and find some way to possibly help him hopefully reverse this terrible condition. I've read about your Full body detox and was a bit disappointed when reviewing the conditions which it remedies as it listed neither psoriasis nor arthritis. With his condition uric acid levels are extremely elevated as in gout and I was wondering if a course of medical grade charcoal would help to adsorb the U.A. Any help you could offer in the way of advise would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    Just because we don't list EVERY ailment the FBD helps to help mean doesn't mean the Full body detox doesn't. Of course it works on psoriasis and arthritis. Read some of our FREE health articles on our site! There is much help for any condition here at Dherbs.Com! You can heal from ANY condition as long as you BELIEVE you can be healed!

    Q: I am writing for advice about a brain tumor. My daughter, 14, was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade II brain tumor (fibrillary astrocytoma). A neurosurgeon placed a "shunt" in her head a week ago. Speaking with a number of physicians in Atlanta that specialize in pediatric neurology, it seems our options are limited, and we've been directed to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, for a 6 week treatment of radiation and chemotherapy (tarceva). We know there are risks, but we seem to have no other choice in the conventional medicine arena. Here are my questions. What holistic approach could we take? The tumor is the size of an orange and is growing around her brain like a vine on a bush. It is also bithalamic, that is, covering both her left and right thalamus. She is an honor student, but we are seeing signs of some erosion i.e. she takes frequent naps, does not seem to know when to take herself to the restroom, and is running fevers. The doctors have her on steroids to help with the swelling of her three recent operations as well as something else. My preference is to try to the holistic approach first, but we don't have a lot of time. What are the time-frames associated with your treatment? I know something of this nature will take some time to take effect. I should mention that the prognosis is not very promising.

    A:

    Don't worry about time, just take a natural course. Chemo and radiation will do the poor child in. This would poison her. But this is you guy's choice here! I would give the child BRAIN TUNER TEA daily (2 cups daily) and DETOX TEA nightly. Stop feeding the tumor by giving the child bad food, i.e. meat, eggs, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc.

    Q: I have just discovered some of your articles last night. I have been reading a lot of stuff by David Wolfe lately, and pretty much everything thing you say agrees with eachother. You are a very intelligent person. I was wondering if you had written any books, or plan on writing any. I will buy them. Keep spreading the good word, you really are a true healer.

    A:

    Much appreciated from the heart, Beloved! Thank you for sharing that! I have a few e-books right now, including "The Mental Science Manual," "The Money, Wealth, and Prosperity", "The Love Manual" and a few others. You can find them on the website in the on-line store under "e-books." They'll all be published in the future into little books. I'm presently working on "Discovering Your Life's Purpose", so as to help people transition into their life's higher purpose. I quote David Wolf in my new article "Beware Hybrid and Genetically Engineered Foods" which will be on the Dherbs.com Home Page in about 2 weeks.

    Q: I was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.

    A:

    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: I am writing to you because I recently had my blood checked for hormone levels, it turns out I am producing more of some male hormone in large amounts. I think its called the DHAEs, in any case the endocrine specialist says it could be cysts on my ovaries or a tumor in my adrenals that is making my count 163 where a normal woman produces this hormone at a 79 count, of course I am not claiming any tumors, and I asked her to send me back to the lab to "retake" a sample...before I go back, I would like to try regulate the glandular function with your help and see if the results differ.

    A:

    HMMM, DHAE OR DE-HYDRO EPI-ANDROSTERONE IT'S CALLED AND IS SOMEWHAT UNIQUE BECAUSE THE HORMONE "ANDROSTERONE" IS UNISEXUAL AND BOTH SEXES OR GENDERS PRODUCE IT BUT IT'S REALLY A FEMALE HORMONE BUT HAS BEEN GIVEN OR ATTRIBUTED TO MALES TO BALANCE WOMEN HAVING 2 HORMONES: PROGESTERONE AND ESTROGEN, AND SO NOW MALES HAVE TESTOSTERONE AND ANDROSTERONE. WELL, CLEARLY A HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND DENOTES A DEFICIENCY WITH THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. RARELY, I WOULD AGREE WITH THE ENDOCRINOLOGIST IN THIS CASE BECAUSE DHAE IS PRODUCED IN AND SECRETED BY THE ADRENAL GLANDS. BUT YOU SEE, WHETHER OVARIES OR ADRENALS, YOU ARE DEALING WITH "GLANDS" AND IT STILL POINTS TO THE HORMONAL OR ENDOCRINE SYSTEM SO FOR SURE WE KNOW THE PROBLEM IS HERE WITH THIS BODILY SYSTEM (ENDOCRINE OR HORMONAL). FOR SURE ... I MOST DEFINITELY UNDERSTAND. WITHOUT A DOUBT I AM SUGGESTING THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE AND THE ADRENALIZER FORMULA (REMOVE ONE OF THE FORMULAS FROM THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE THAT YOU FEEL YOU DON'T NEED AND SUPPLEMENT WITH ADRENALIZER FORMULA.)

    Q: Thank you for your responds to my letter. The reason why I want to gain weight is for a health reason not for looks. Society has nothing to do with me gaining weight. I'm 5'11 1/2" almost 6' and my weight is 137 lbs. Now to me I'm underweight for what I used to weight in my 20s. I was 150-160 lbs then but as I'd reached my 30s and having a lot of stress weigh down on me my eating habit as well my weight decrease to 120 - 130 lbs. So as you can see I had lost about 30-40 lbs. So yes I want to gain my weight so I can be happy and healthy. I understand that "gaining weight is gaining waste" if you are doing for the society or physical appearance. But that's not what I'm looking for, I'm doing it for my health. So if there a way for me to put the weight on; do you have a suggestion. I will appreciate it if not then thank you for taking the time to read my letters.

    A:

    THE BEST WAY TO PUT THE WEIGHT BACK ON IS VIA EXERCISING (WEIGHT LIFTING), PERFORMING VISUALIZATION TECHNIQUES (SEEING YOURSELF WITH THE WEIGHT ON YOU) AND PERHAPS OVEREATING GOOD VEGAN FOOD

    Q: I am writing you to see if you have any information and remedies for hemorrhoids. I am a Black African male in my 40's.

    Q: I am writing you with concern for my father. He is 54 years old, and was just diagnosed with an enlarged heart. He is very worried, and to be honest I am too. I told him that he immediately needs to go on the Full Body Detox. Start a raw foods diet that includes no meats, and no dairy. Do you think he should get a colonic? Should he get it first? He began running this morning, and has been walking in the evenings. He has a HUGE stomach. It looks as if he is about 8 months pregnant. SOLID! We live in the Philadelphia Area and we are Muslim. The only person we know that is GOOD as far as colonics is a female, and he has some reservations about that. My mother always says "Do what you gotta do". What steps should he take to heal his body? In what order? I know it may be kind of hard to diagnose, or give steps to a third person. I am really concerned, and afraid that his concern may cause more damage to his heart. I am almost certain that my father would not mind talking to you. He may be impressed with your knowledge. All the herbalist we know thus far have been women. As soon as he told us of his illness I immediately thought of you. I pray that you can help us. We all as a family need to get our health together. PLEASE HELP US the best way you can. . . . .

    A:

    It's the easiest thing to take care of. Detox the body with the Full Body Detox followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. He will drink Hearty Heart tea during both cleanses. The man has eaten himself into this condition via poor diet so reversed diet is the way out. More raw foods (fruits and vegetable), vegetable juice.

    Q: I read most of your articles. Love them. What you say is 100% correct. See for me. I believe that God has put me here for a reason. I have been blessed with the ability to for see things and when I think about something hard enough BAM!! I think of someone and they show up, so in regards to my current situation YES. I did have a hand in this. I keep thinking of not wanting to get HIV. Didn’t want to hear about or talk about it. Then two months before getting my initial test. It was on my mind. Then I got a physical and I was like no going to take this test but went ahead anyway and here we are. Do I believe in it? Not anymore. I now believe in blood toxicity. I am not freaking out about outbreaks because I don't have any. What I want is to know how to shape my mind. Do I need Chakra balance? What can I do to stop the thoughts? How do I reverse my mind to stop thinking on things. I try so hard to see happy things and feel happy thoughts. BTW in Jan I thought about a cold sore and it appeared.

    A:

    Thanks for explaining all that! I think the MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL is right up your alley, Beloved. It'll be up next week. So glad you enjoy my articles, Beloved! You are a powerful person and you will be dangerous (in a good way) when you learn the power of your mind. Peace and Love!

    Q: Back in September, I experienced a terrible outbreak on my hand. Today is day 20 on my FBD, and I have another outbreak on my hand. The outbreak is not as severe as last time. I had an outbreak in my private area 2 days ago. This outbreak was not as severe as in my past. There was itching, but no bumps. I have gotten to the point, where I am going about my normal routine, like I did before I was diagnosed. Any suggestions for me in order to meet optimal health that will reverse herpes anyway?

    A: First start with the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Anti-Viral Cleanse. Lastly you will perform the 10 Day Blood Cleanse. You then want to start a daily regimen consisting of the Anti-Viral Formula, Vitamin C, and Blood Formula. You want to perform a cleanse at least four times a year. There is no way to determine how long it will take to heal yourself from herpes but with a proper diet and help with herbs your intuition can only get better.

    Q: I am sending you this message because I am very concerned about my friend?s health. He's a young black man; age 31.He is highly STRESSED OUT on his job and has been experiencing patches of HAIR LOSS all through out his head. He went to see a doctor and is now taking some sort of medicine with steroids in it. I believe you can advise him on a more natural way (DHERBS) to control his STRESS & HAIR LOSS problem.

    A: Consider supplementing with MSM, Hair, Skin, & Nails, Nerves Formula, and/or the Anti-Stress Inhaler. These products should greatly help with the mentioned symptoms your friend is experiencing. The stress is contributing to the hair loss.
