In order to be able to write fast and relaxed over a longer period of time, you should consider the following points:
1. How do you hold a pen correctly?
In order to keep your hand from cramping up and to be able to write as quickly and relaxed as possible, you should hold the pen in the so-called three-point grip.
With this grip technique, the pen is fixed between your index finger and thumb and is guided in this way. The index finger should be as parallel to the pen as possible, as this makes it easier to guide the pen with your arm.
The pen should be placed approximately on the upper joint of the middle finger. The middle finger itself does not carry the pen.
2. Write with the whole arm
The movement should not come from the fingers or the hand, but from the whole arm and shoulder. This may seem strange to you, but it relieves the strain on your hand and wrist and allows you to write longer and better.
3. The correct position of the wrist
Your wrist should be straight and not bent. The pen should be the extension of your arm and should be in a straight line to it. Make sure that you write with your whole arm and not only with your wrist.
4. The correct posture
You should be sitting upright at your desk. Your shoulders shouldn’t fall forward. Pull them back and lift your chest. If you lean forward too much while writing, your muscles in your neck, shoulders and arms will tire faster.
Also make sure that your desk and desk chair meet ergonomic requirements.
