Note taking theraputic?

I was reading a post by Steve over at This Space and it got me thinking.

I know that taking notes really increases comprehension for me during spoken events, but what about during reading or, say, watching a video? I’m not thinking that note taking is going make your average movie more enjoyable, but what about a documentary you’re watching for more than just entertainment value?

His comments on how note taking relieving some travel ailments also make sense to me – if taking notes increases concentration, then naturally it will take your mind off things.

Another reason to take a few extra notebooks or Moleskines or memory cards on that next trip!
