Another Stress Reliever

Feeling stressed? Calligraphy not only creates beautiful art works with letters, it’s a soothing, relaxing exercise for anyone who needs to unwind.  Just take about a half hour a day to practice and you’ll notice an instant difference in how you feel.

After several months of lettering, I’ve noticed how the process resembles a calming experience similar to yoga. If you’re familiar with this exercise, you know how it encourages smooth, slow body movements to form a stationary pose. In comparison to yoga, calligraphy demands the same pace while using the pen; it helps a writer achieve a near-perfect letter design.

 As I’ve heard numerous times…”it’s about quality, not quantity.”
