Pen and paper perks: Your brain loves handwriting

According to a number of studies presented in an article by Huffington Post titled ”How Handwriting Sharpens Your Mind”, writing by hand has several benefits.

One of them is the discovery of a distinct neural pathway that is only activated when we physically draw out our letters. And this pathway leads the way toward overall success in learning and memory.

Another study, of pre-literate children, showed that handwriting turns us into stronger readers since forming letters by hand activates the brain’s reading circuit. And then there’s the deeply meditative quality of handwriting, helping you slow down, focus and making sure what you write will stick for good.
