Handwritten Note

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.

Head over to The Week for the explanations, and tell me in the comments what things you still write by hand.  And of course, don’t forget to see what your handwriting says about you.


  1. Tackling Mommyhood
