Another day, another study and one that you can participate in regardless of where you are geographically located.
I thought this one might be of particular interest to my fellow bloggers, people who obviously enjoy the written word.
From the Black Dog Institute:
Over the centuries, many people have been naturally drawn to writing about their life and their experiences, through journals, creative writing, and other forms of written expression. Day to day life can be stressful as people strive for balance between family, friends and work. We are interested in whether certain kinds of expressive writing can be helpful for people in managing their moods, stress levels and general health. The ‘Writing and Mood’ study is investigating whether particular ways of writing about our lives and our experiences can offer benefits for our moods, emotional and physical health. We are also interested in whether people with certain personality styles find writing in certain ways to be more helpful than others.
If you are interested in finding out more or even taking part, you can read more about the study or register here.
