Chinese calligraphy is both an artistic and physical practice. Chinese calligraphy is an effective way to enjoy a healthy life and longevity. Many medical reports and research studies have rated practicing Chinese calligraphy as the number one activity for benefiting longevity.  It can elevate one’s body, mind, and spirit from internal and external practices. It has been regarded as a good way to strengthen one’s will and leads to a healthy life.

Many principles and benefits of practicing Chinese calligraphy are very similar to meditation, Qi Gong, and Chinese internal martial arts. While one is practicing Chinese calligraphy, one has to calm the mind, body, and breathe and focus on writing. The breath is very smooth and the mind is very peaceful and joyful.
