Admittedly, yesterday was National Handwriting Day, but just because the “holiday” is over, doesn’t mean you should go back to tapping out all your meeting notes and thank yous on your laptop. There are actually several benefits to writing out notes and ideas by hand. The Week has compiled a list of four of them:
1. It’s better for learning.
2. It makes you a better writer.
3. It will prevent you from being distracted.
4. It keeps your brain sharp as you get older.
