IMPROVING YOUR HANDWRITING (Easy tips and tricks!)

IMPROVING YOUR HANDWRITING (Easy tips and tricks!)

Hey everyone! Many people send me comments
and messages saying that they like my handwriting but hate their own. It’s annoying when you
have pretty journals, notebooks and writing paper but you’re afraid to use them because
you’re worried about your writing. So today I have put together a video for you with my
tips on how to improve your handwriting, I really hope that you enjoy it and you find
it useful. Now let’s begin! So to start with, you need to find the right
pen. You may have to try a variety of pens first. Felt tip, ball point, gel… it’s important
to find the right pen because you need to be able to get a good grip on it and use the
right pressure on the paper. You don’t want your hand to start hurting either and for
writing to feel like a chore. The one I feel the most comfortable using is this fine line
one here. As you can see, it’s got a really fine tip and it feels really comfortable for
me to use. Pick up a cheap lined exercise book to practise
in, and practise as often as you can whenever you have some free time. Don’t worry too much
about the positioning of how you hold your pen. Back when I was in second grade my teacher
constantly criticised how I held my pen and tried to change it, but I never had an issue
with it causing me discomfort or my work suffering. I don’t believe that there is a right or wrong
way to hold a pen, so do whatever feels comfortable for you and only change it if you’re experiencing
discomfort to your hand. A good way to start is by hopping online and
finding some pangrams to copy. A pangram is a sentence that contains every letter of the
alphabet. The most common one you have probably heard of is “The quick brown fox jumps over
a lazy dog,” but there are plenty more to find online. I will link a website down below.
Start by writing the sentences in your normal handwriting. Assess what you are and are not
happy about. You can even write out the alphabet and look at how you are forming each letter
and which ones you need to improve on. Next you can try rewriting the alphabet as
slowly and as carefully as you can. It’s important to not rush or feel stressed. Practise your
handwriting when you feel calm and relaxed. There’s no need to rush and to expect your
handwriting to magically become neat and amazing overnight. It takes practice. So breathe.
Make yourself a cup of your favourite tea. Light a candle. Put on some ambient music
and be kind to yourself. Another thing to look at is how tightly you
are holding your pen. As an example, you can see me here holding this ballpoint pen. I
don’t know if you can notice but I’m gripping it so tightly that my hand is shaking. And
as you can see, because this is the wrong pen for me and because I am gripping it so
tightly, the quality of my writing has suffered. You need to have a firm grip on your pen.
It’s about finding the right balance between a tight grip and a loose grip. Writing with
a tight grip on your pen can lead to discomfort and pain to your hand. My next tip is to concentrate on the size
of your lettering. In my first example here, my letters are all the same size. Whereas,
in my second example, I have rushed through and they are all of different sizing. Practice
making all of your letters the same size. A good way to do this is by using the lines
on your paper and practising keeping all of your uppercase letters within the same lines
and your lowercase letters within the same lines. You can practise this using different
pangrams and by rewriting the alphabet. You can do this over and over each time your practise
your handwriting. You will gradually see an improvement. Now my final tip is, you can check out pinterest
or other sites for inspiration if you want to change the style of your handwriting. Cursive
handwriting may look pretty, but if you don’t feel comfortable using it, you don’t have
to. Stick to printing. You can then look at your slant and whether you are able to write
quickly and neatly without slanting. Do what feels comfortable for you though. For me,
I feel most comfortable printing. And that’s it! Thank you for watching this video I really
hope that these tips have helped you out. It can be a good way to relax and fun to practise
handwriting, so I really hope that you give it a go. If you enjoy this video, be sure
