By: Olivia Reul

Health Benefits

Many people who sit at desks all day often have muscle pain in their back and shoulders due to improper typing posture. Many people also get carpal tunnel syndrome due to improper typing posture. This is caused by excess stress on your wrist which happens when you don't properly type.

Speed

Proper typing increases you WPM (words per minute). Many people have an average of 30 WPM, but proper typing allows you to have 75-80 WPM. This can cut the time it takes for a job in half. This could leave you extra time for other jobs and time to relax.

Employer Appeal

Proper typing makes you more appealing compared to others who can't type or work as fast as you. It also gives you more job options in fields that require typing such as office work, accounting, or secretary.
