When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone? This year, we predict that letter writing is making a come-back! Start your new year off by writing a letter!

Letter writing is a mindful activity that will improve your mental health by easing feelings of loneliness and isolation. Connecting through letter writing is also a great way to strengthen friendships and family bonds, or make new friends. Writing letters often will help you to improve your writing skills and offer a creative outlet for you to share stories, feelings and decorate your letters. Letter writing allows you to be creative in many ways from practicing your hand writing and lettering, writing creative stories, poetry and conversations, or giving you a space to add drawings, stickers, wash tapes and creative decorations.
