How to improve handwriting

Are you thinking about ‘How to improve handwriting?’ because it is bad or not satisfactory. 

I myself and my wife both are high school teachers we have dealt with many students with bad handwriting and who ever followed our guidelines has improved their handwriting to a clean and beautiful one.

Moreover I myself had suffered this issue of bad handwriting in my early age, I faced the situation when my own family members criticized me because of my handwriting, but this criticism was good for me, as I was determined to change my handwriting and I was successful in that. 

I do not possess the best handwriting but now my writing is fast and clearly understood by everyone. 

You can improve your handwriting by following some simple steps like: 

  • Make sure people can read your handwriting easily (ask others to read your writing)
  • You must be able to write fast
  • Your writings of every letter or number must be easy to understand 
  • Give appropriate space between letters and lines
  • Make sure size of your letter and numbers are appropriate (Not too small or too large)
  • Try to write with single flow (without picking up your pen several times)
  • Hold the pen properly, so that you can make easy and most movement
  • Make your hands flexible in rounding by practicing
  • Create a proper grip with pen and fingers
  • Don’t use smudge creating pen
  • Hold the paper in way it is comfortable to you
  • If your cursive writing is too confusing to others then change the style

1. Day 1: Realize that you need improvement in your handwriting and make determination

First step towards improving your handwriting is to realize that you need improvement in your handwriting. If you are satisfied with your current handwriting then you will never be able to improve.

How will you know that you need improvement in your handwriting?

There are some indications to observe and give attention to for understanding this. 

It is not enough that you can understand your own handwriting but the most important matter is that others can understand your handwriting. 

If you find that other people are facing difficulty in understanding your handwriting or giving negative comments about your handwriting then it is clear that you need an improvement in your handwriting. 

Once you are sure that you need improvement, now is the time to work on this. Working on a habit of writing style you are adopted with and improving it can not be done overnight, so you need strong determination to break the old habit of writing and establish a new style of writing.

2. Week 1: Break the old habit of writing

Breaking a habit of writing style is not so easy, because your hand and fingers are adopted with this style of writing. 

First thing you need to do, in the process of breaking the old habit of unsatisfied handwriting, is setting a special time of at least 30 minutes for one week to shift from old to desired new style.

3. Week 2: Establish the new style of writing

Breaking the habit of old style of writing and establishing the new style of writing may go together in the first one week and in the second week you need to establish the new style of writing strongly to make your hand adopt this. 

It is said that it takes around one week to break a habit and adopt the new habit, so we are actually applying this principle, in changing the pattern of handwriting.

(I have practically worked on this one week habit breaking principle and I found it works)

4. Find someone with good handwriting / Get idea from internet

The way of success can be followed, so if someone is writing in a certain style and it looks clean and attractive then if you follow the same style of writing it will look beautiful too. 

You may have a friend or family member, whose handwriting mesmerizes you, because of its clarity and easy readability. Then it is a smart choice that you observe his or her writing style keenly and apply them in your writing. It was the first and most effective way I changed my handwriting. 

If you don’t find anyone then get help from the internet or check out the samples below. 

You can also follow cursive writing in English but often it creates difficulty in detecting and distinguishing every letter from writing. So, according to my opinion, mix your writing style and find the best readable one to continue to practice and follow.

5. Follow the best writing style of the alphabets and numbers

Remember, there is no exact rule in handwriting. The priority and purpose of handwriting must be to present your thoughts, ideas, emotions and knowledge in a clearly readable way. 

You don’t need the best handwriting but what you need is a clean, clearly visible and easily readable writing with efficient speed of delivery or fast handwriting. 

So, either you can follow one person’s handwriting or multiple person’s handwriting by picking the best readable styles of alphabets and numbers. 

Once you pick them now is the time to apply them in your day today’s life in order to make your handwriting effective, fast and easily readable. 

6. Some important facts to know and practice

  • Make sure people can read your handwriting easily (ask others to read your writing)
  • You must be able to write fast
  • Your writings of every letter or number must be easy to understand 
  • Give appropriate space between letters and lines
  • Make sure size of your letter and numbers are appropriate (Not too small or too large)
  • Try to write with single flow (without picking up your pen several times)
  • Hold the pen properly, so that you can make easy and most movement

  • Create a proper grip with pen and fingers
  • Don’t use smudge creating pen
  • Hold the paper in way it is comfortable to you
  • If your cursive writing is too confusing to others then change the style

7. Benefits of Good and Fast written handwriting

Remember the good handwriting with fast in speed of delivery produces a bunch of benefits, some are here:

  • Beautiful handwriting increases your self-esteem or respect.
  • You become capable of writing fast, which is great for examinations to write more and get more marks.
  • It becomes easy to write faster by listening to the lecture of your teacher or professor.
