Living in the digital age, we simply can't survive without typing. We use different keyboards on our smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops daily. This is probably one of the activities you do most of your day if you are a student or working in an office. We don't even think about it anymore since it's so common, but the question is if we use it properly, with 10 fingers and if we can type fast enough and be fully productive while studying or working while staying healthy. We prepared for you our best typing tips and hope this will help you improve your typing skills.
Learning how to type properly can take a few weeks. Make sure to practice daily and don't give up easily. Practicing touch typing (typing without looking) is something you should practice daily, because looking down while typing slows down your typing process. You can also try free typing workshops online as a practice. One of the best tips is to get to know your keyboard well because only if you have a clear picture of your keyboard in your mind, you will be able to focus on what you want to write and you won't make many mistakes.
