Improving Test Scores [Life Scores]

I came across a TV show on PBS called ScienceNow. In this show a researcher showed  that students who write their thoughts on paper for 10 minutes prior to a test scored significantly better, a B+ over B- by the control group. The researcher found that this quieted the emotional part of the brain which no longer interfered with the cognitive area brain that is responsible for recalling the information stored for the test. Could our 'Life Scores' be better if we journaled each morning before starting our day? [Stefan]
