Writing it in a letter
Of course, many people would call letter writing old-fashioned. But let’s be honest – when we come home to find an envelope with our name on it, we get a warm fuzzy feeling inside. And no, we don’t mean your latest bank statement or electric bill, but a bona fide handwritten letter from a loved one. There’s so much love in a letter – they’re sentimental, rare and romantic – something physical to hold on to. They show that a real effort was made to reach out to you, and getting an actual letter can often make someone’s day. But writing a letter can also be therapeutic. By sitting down and composing a message to someone, we allow ourselves to take a break from the hectic world around us and focus on the person we’re writing to. These days, letters are rare, but there’s something truly special about getting actual mail, instead of just a ping in your inbox.
