WRITING BY HAND AND WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT MORE OFTEN

There is something inherently alluring about anything hand written. Writing love letters by hand seem more romantic. Thank you letters seem more genuine. And hand written invitations just scream “I want you to be there!” Now find out why you should write by hand more often.

IT HELPS WITH MEMORY

Hearing something and then writing something down by hand helps with memory, it’s proven! And this is the major reason why educators all over the world still advise their students to handwrite their notes, despite the introduction of all sorts of technology. So next time you’re working on your computer in the office, instead of making a note on the computer or iPad, handwrite it on a post-it.

IT DISPLAYS SENTIMENTALITY

It’s much easier to send a text or an email, this goes without saying. But handwriting a thank you letter or invitation makes the whole thing much more personal and sentimental. One reason for this is because it simply takes more time to write something, and that in itself shows personality. So the next opportunity you get, try giving someone a hand written letter and see what the results are. I’m sure they’ll be positive!

IT MAKES YOU A BETTER THINKER AND WRITER

Because it is inherently slower than typing, writing by hand helps you better articulate your thoughts and therefore makes you a better writer. Not only this, absent the spell check ability and other grammar aiding tools, handwritten notes help you focus on building your sentences while also forcing you to practice your grammar.
