National Letter Writing Day (Dec 7)

Choose a few special people to write a full-blown letter to this month. It will help you focus on gratitude and will give them a boost during a stressful month.

We have some tips to help you craft a lovely letter. First, use a warm greeting. Perhaps remark about the last time you were together. Next, tell them about yourself, what’s going on with you and your family — but avoid the urge to brag — just keep it down to earth. Follow up this part by asking about your recipient. Inquire about family news, what’s happening now, etc. Close by sharing some things you appreciate about them and any upcoming plans for the future. Let the person know you’d love to hear from them too. The most important thing is to be sincere and honest. Date the letter (usually in the top right-hand corner), and sign it. And that’s all there is to it!
