9. It helps you practice your handwriting.
You spend years of your early life learning how to write in a variety of fonts. Some of us even took calligraphy lessons. It was cool back then, we swear! But what happened to all those skills? In an age where we type more than we talk, many of us have forgotten how to actually write down anything. Our handwriting abilities have gone to crap thanks to the whole “use it or lose it” theory. If you commit to writing your notes, birthday cards and letters by hand you’ll regain your ability to write in a neat, or maybe just legible, way.
