Beautiful handwriting is incredible, isn’t it? There is no doubt that writing by hand requires more complex movement than tapping keys on a computer keyboard, but it has been shown to improve learning, creativity and memory.
Many people argue that in this age, handwriting is not required since we almost always communicate written language using computer devices. They believe that class time should not be wasted teaching what is not needed.
However, that is a narrow definition of “need.” Writing by hand does more than just create a grocery list. It helps define your fine muscular control and the vital connection between your hand and your brain. I consider this to be a powerful argument for anyone wanting to write by hand.
If you want to improve your handwriting from an illegible squiggle but haven’t got around to doing it, why not start now!
