Role of A Beautiful Mind  What are the things that come first in our experience when we meet someone and start our first conversation! Definitely, their words or say their thoughts! If you seriously understand thoughts you might wonder what thoughts can create for us? So let's dig into the "Art of Becoming a Mindful Being" and know it from an artist's dogma. If you ever met a really captivating personality then it's somewhere directly related to the person's thought process! Our thoughts become our actions, and actions define us. Further, doing a specific kind of action repeatedly defines our nature and character. It directly implies that thoughts are making us and what we do makes our destiny. That's what is exactly called as "Law of attraction" also in some other fancy words. What we are today is a collection of our thoughts from the past and we can say that our today's thoughts are tomorrow's actions and our actions define what we are

The Art of Writing: How to write beautifully | Improve Your Child's Handwriting

The Art of Beautiful Handwriting

Beautiful handwriting is a learned trait

We all can relate how hard it is to read, which is almost illegible, and how soothing is to read those words written in beautiful handwriting. Handwriting is not only related to writing something on paper it's much more than what people know. According to Graphology, it's the language of mind expressed through your body, or say hands. It says a lot about what's going on in your mind.  

So in this article, we are going to brief the knowledge about handwriting, explore the art of beautiful handwriting, and also understand "How to improve your child's handwriting".

Relation Between Handwriting and Personality:

Though once you are done with your studies, your handwriting doesn't matter a lot. But never underestimate the role of beautiful handwriting. You would have heard about the analysis of personality based on a person's writing skills, or say writing patterns. It's called Graphology. According to this writing can expose both a stable state of mind or even some kind of incoherent state of mind.

Beautiful handwriting is not gifted but it is earned through practice and efforts. Though there are many learned and intelligent people who don't have beautiful handwriting, if one has it's a plus point with/her whole education duration and persona.

A Parent Or a Teacher Can Play a Vital Role

I remember my early childhood when I used to write in a bizarre pattern😏. Though it was not very bad, you can say I used to put my own size of letters plus some amount of imitation from other people and peer groups. In "Hindi" I remember my big sizes of "Matras" and that Zigzag and wavey patterns of line on top of all those letters😝. Then I met a teacher in my 5th grade, who changed me a lot. My handwriting was one of those changes. She was a wonderful lady I ever met in my elementary school days. She was really kind of a teacher who can create values in a person. So in a few months only I totally changed my way of writing, and when I passes 5th grade, I could say my writing was really neat and beautiful compared to my age then. And yes, this was the case with all the students in my class. Later whenever I wrote everybody appreciated it. I can never ever forget her contribution. 

Steps to Beautiful Handwriting Starts from Early Childhood:

Little children's fingers are very nimble to adapt handwriting skills

Yes, you read it right! Little efforts can go magical at an early age when children's fingers are nimble. This is the phase to practice handwriting, and this is the best time when a right kind of teacher or a parent can play a big role. Every child is different, some are gentle with high learning curves, and others are self-willed needing some kinds of tricks and tools to learn. So, here are some ideas to give you a helping hand while teaching beautiful handwriting lessons.

1. Learning How to Write is About Imitation

Take some good handwriting examples, and pay attention to the pattern of every letter. Then start imitating those letters. If a parent or a teacher has good handwriting, then that person can also help little children to understand the flow of the letters. 

2. Right Sitting Position Matters a Lot

Pay attention to the child's sitting position, and also how he/she is holding the paper and pen. Sitting on the "chair and table" of a suitable height is always recommended, if not try to provide them a small writing desk/study table. You can also consider the multipurpose study table shown below. You can take it anywhere, and use it for multiple purposes.

3. Early, Slowly, and Regularly Wins the Race Here

Practicing beautiful handwriting is just like making Art pieces, you can not do it just like that. It needs continuous efforts to reach perfection. But anyone can do it for sure.

 4. Practice Is the Key Point

Write a few letters or a few lines every day to keep your mind and fingers in practice until you get the desired results! Practice always makes a MAN perfect. I am sure practice will make a CHILD perfect too. 😄😜😝

5. Continuity Is Important 

Practicing handwriting now and then is not helpful. It can't give you permanent results. So Continuation of practice is another main key point.

6. Engage Your Child in Art/Drawing Activities

Art and drawing always help in lubricating children's minds and making their fingers nimble. Give them opportunities to explore their horizons. 

7. Applauds and Small Rewards Motivate Them

Everybody likes Applauds and rewards so as little children too. Fill their bucket of emotional needs with motivation and positive support.

8. Few Toys/ Activity Books Can Help

Children are always inclined towards fun activities. If your child has just started holding a pen, a few educational toys can really help him/her.
