Whether it is filling out applications, writing in my journal, writing letters with photos attached to my Grandma down in Oregon, handwriting is bliss...happiness...relaxing.
I would like to thank a fellow blogger for posting about this as well and sharing the link to "What's Lost as Handwriting Fades". This article is an interesting read. I find it informative that, "Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information". (Konnikova, Maria June 02, 2014).
In a world were technology is so prevalent and mainstream, it is easy to forget how things first started....with a pen, a piece of paper, and some ink. According to research that is out there, handwriting also keeps the brain in tip-top working order, sharper than ever. Not only that, but handwriting helps the brain to remember and retain information better than the screen and keyboard does.
