Welcome to my Home. Today is National Thesaurus day and Handwriting week. Making it a perfect time to talk about the lost Art of a handwritten Note . My Mom was famous for her note writings : she wrote notes to family and friends and of course Thank you notes. Since her passing I have tried to keep up the practice in her honor. But yes : a simple text or email is so easy and No stamp needed.
Reasons to Reclaim the Lost Art of Letter Writing
- Handwritten letters are personal. : “A hand-addressed envelope with a real stamp and luxury note inside is very tactile. One of the oldest forms of communication, handwriting is innately human.”
Handwriting is a stress reliever. “The experience of writing a handwritten letter has been shown to relieve stress and is a really calming process,” notes.
It’s an opportunity for creativity and self-expression.: It’s also an opportunity to embrace right-brain thinking, allowing your creativity to influence how you write, what you write, how you read, and how you interpret the words.
Handwritten letters provide you the gift of time.: In our fast-paced world, we could all use an opportunity to slow down. Whether writing a handwritten letter or reading one, you take your eyes off the screen and engage your eyes and brain in a new way that requires attention and thoughtfulness
They have more value than a digital letter.
Unlike a text or email, handwritten letters offer both physical and emotional value that doesn’t go unnoticed by the receiver. You can hold a letter in your hands, smell it, display it, share it, and store it. And because they’re often unexpected or occasional, they’re associated with delight.
If you haven’t written anything lately : And want to start with something small :
Handwritten Thank You note :
What to write : Thank You Note basics:
- Though it might seem obvious, it’s important to start off your note by actually saying “thank you.” “Address the person and say ‘thank you’ because sometimes people forget that part.”
- Name or reference the gift specifically.
- Write a sentence or two about how you plan to use the gift or what you like about it.
