"It is safe to say that the majority of jobs on the market involve typing in some way or another.

Typing correctly can help you later on in life.

"This reason may seem a little bizarre at first, but think about it. When a person types with bad posture or hand positions, the typist may acquire neck or back pain, but on a more serious note, the medical condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. With good technique, a typist has a better chance of avoiding all sorts of discomfort"

Typing increases reading skills.

"One of the most prominent benefits of learning to type while young is that it involves so much reading. The literacy of the kids will grow at a very rapid rate with the kids reading the words, and then producing the words themselves. Their knowledge of the alphabet, spelling, sentence structure, etc. will augment substantially. It will also improve their memory and hand-eye coordination."

Good posture leads to better typing.

  • "Sit straight and remember to keep your back straight.
  • Keep your elbows bent at the right angle.
  • Face the screen with your head slightly tilted forward.
  • Keep at least 45 - 70 cm of distance between your eyes and the screen.
  • Еxpose the shoulder, arm, and wrist muscles to the least possible strain. The wrists can touch the tabletop in front of the keyboard. Never shift your body weight to the wrists by resting on them."

Don't look at the keyboard when typing.

"Don't look at the keys when you type. Just slide your fingers around until they find the home row marking.

Limit your hand and finger movement only to what is necessary to press a specific key. Keep your hands and fingers close to the base position. This improves typing speed and reduces stress on the hands.

Pay attention to ring fingers and little fingers, since they are considerably underdeveloped."
