16 Videos Of Perfect Handwriting That Will Calm Down Your Anxious Mind

I am addicted to handwriting porn.

The problem started innocently enough. Early one Sunday morning, I happened to be lolling in my bed, dwelling in a black pool of guilt about having gone out the night before, scrolling through Instagram.

I like to treat social media like junk food: Follow a few accounts that make me laugh, but mix some educational feeds too — art history, travel, the whole deal. Fewer aspirational feeds, less stress in the pit of your stomach.

That's how I found Kelly Klapstein (@KellyCreates), a woman with handwriting so perfect and crisp it's unbelievable.

She's the Beyoncé of pen nibs and brush lettering. Her unbelievable art puts my mind at ease.

Soon, Instagram was suggesting I follow dozens of calligraphy accounts. The more I looked, it became clear there was a meditative quality to slow, precise brush strokes.

Their smooth edges and jewel tones made me feel like I was looking at a stained-glass window or taking a break while on vacation somewhere.

I'm telling you: Handwriting might just be the solution to your stress, anxiety and busy week. Just adding it to your Instagram feed will make you feel better.

Pen porn is thriving on social media, and you'd better get in on the trend.


If you struggle to quell the rising anxiety in your esophagus at all times, watching a stable-handed lady wield a pen is a master class in zen-like meditation.


Following a slow brush stroke with your eyes is basically the equivalent of a Millennial mandala.


Why walk a church labyrinth, when you could use this quick fix at your office desk?


Those crisp lines.


That smooth pen stroke.


Pure bliss, I tell you.


Add in some color and you're really having fun.


So deliciously satisfying.


How are you feeling?


Is your heartbeat slowing?


Breathing feels a little easier?


Pen porn does it yet again.


Now, think happy thoughts and go about your day.
