Worried about your typing speed? Typing speed is important when you need to do things. At initial stage, most of us are slow in typing. But having a good typing speed really helps you out in various activities like blogging, chatting and importantly social networking. Life has become fast, and now we need to manage our time efficiently. Improving your typing speed helps you to get better time management.
The position in which you sit actually matters, and also determines the number of performed keystrokes significantly. Position yourselves steady, and sit with your backbone straight in a tall chair so that your eyes, and monitor is in a straight line.
The placement of your fingers over they keyboard, determines the speed of your typing. Most of us type using one hand, and that practice should not be continued further. Because for smooth typing, we need to two hands. Place both hands on your keyboard like in this page.
#3 Look at monitor
Don’t look at keyboard while typing. This may seem hard to implement. But if you practice typing without looking at the keyboard, then its worth it. Because looking at the monitor helps you find errors, and also helps you type faster.
#4 Use backspace
Try typing as fast as you can, and use backspace, if one error occurs. Because at first its perfectly normal to have errors. And later when you can type faster, just try to reduce the number of errors.
#5 Type smoothly
You can get best results if you follow smooth typing. There is no use in hammering the keyboard with loud keystrokes. Because hitting the keyboard harder won’t make you faster. Try to press keys with less effort so that you can perform more keystrokes.
#6 Use typing tools
There are many typing tools available for practicing typing, so download one and start working on it. After some days of homework, you will definitely start to feel the difference.
