A death note book is one of the most powerful tools in the world, so it’s no surprise that Netflix has made it the subject of their newest series. A death note book, or simply, the death note as it’s called in the show, offers Shinigami (Death Gods) an opportunity to extend their lives by writing down the names of humans they’ve deemed worthy of dying on its pages. While that sounds like it could be pretty easy to do, the power of this particular note book was what drew me into the series and kept me watching until I reached the end.
What is a Death Note book?
The death note book is printed with a white line of ink and is made of paper. These note books are also described as being leather-bound, which are perfect for an office setting. Many people prefer to use these note books, over laptops or computers, because they feel that it is more natural for writing since one does not need to stare at a screen all day. But do death note books really help someone to focus and get their thoughts down on paper? You might be surprised by how helpful your new life-sustaining power can be!
So how do I use it?
It may seem simple at first, but you can use your death note book in many ways. Here are just a few Keep track of your food intake for a week and compare it to how you feel each day to see if there’s any correlation between what you eat and how you feel (e.g., better after that huge meal or more sluggish after consuming too much sugar). Keeping track of your diet over time will help give insight into which foods make you feel good or bad. Don’t have a pen handy? You can also jot down notes with your finger! Write down new ideas as they come to you so you don’t forget them later. If something is bugging you or weighing on your mind, write it down and try not to think about it until you get some perspective by writing about it.
How to Maintain your Death Diary
Use your death diary regularly. Use it to organize your schedule, jot down important dates, and document activities or events you’re in charge of leading or participating in. By keeping your death diary current, you’ll be more likely to remember details about events and commitments that are important to you but less likely to make personal time a priority over work commitments—which is key to supporting a successful career. If a loved one dies unexpectedly, use your death diary for information about their memorial service and other relevant details about their final days (if there are any). You can include information like how they died (car accident vs. cancer), what life would have been like had they lived another ten years, or how their family members were faring afterward.
The note book is so powerful that its owner can write both a cause and manner of death for any person he sees. The Shinigami then watch as their victim slowly wastes away, eventually dying in horrible agony; these agonizing moments are referred to as an impure death because there is no white light or tunneling into Heaven. While it’s true that some owners do use their note books to kill people they hate, others use them purely out of curiosity—and sometimes even boredom. The death diary has been used by many different people over time, but one thing remains constant: once you possess it, you never want to let go.
