Boost Creativity with Cursive: The Benefits of Learning

Cursive writing is so much more than just making fancy letters on a page. Cursive is about practice and patience. It’s not just about writing. Some people may argue that cursive writing has become obsolete in today’s world, but the truth is that taking away opportunities to practice and improve skills like cursive writing sets a dangerous precedent.

If we take away things like cursive it’s not long before things like art and music are to go because they “serve no purpose” either. Most people never use the art or music they learned in school. It teaches appreciation and a way to enjoy things. But just because someone doesn’t go on to become a professional artist or musician doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the arts.

Learning to write in cursive teaches important skills that can be applied in other areas of life. It requires focus, fine motor control, and attention to detail. The process of forming each letter and considering the placement and spacing of each character can actually enhance creative and critical thinking skills. Critical thinking skills are vital in all parts of life for things problem-solving and communication.

Writing in cursive is also a form of personal expression. When people create something with their own hands, they are expressing themselves in a way that is unique and personal. It gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment and can bring joy and fulfillment to their lives. By taking away opportunities to practice and improve skills like cursive writing, we’re also taking away opportunities for people to express themselves and experience these positive emotions.

It’s true that the world is moving at a fast pace, and technology is playing an increasingly larger role in our daily lives. I love technology and automation. I work in software development. But that doesn’t mean that we should forget the value of patience, practice, and dedication. By taking away opportunities to improve and master skills like cursive writing, we risk losing the appreciation and enjoyment of the arts, as well as valuable practical skills and the ability to think creatively and critically. These are all important qualities that we should strive to preserve and value, no matter how much we can rely on technology.
