#connectionchallenge Day 3: Handwrite a Thank You Card
To connect on a deeper level, people need to feel they are appreciated. A handwritten thank you note to someone you care about is a great way to show you are grateful for their presence in your life.
You never know how such simple words can impact the person on the receiving end. It can also impact you more than you think. Researchers at Indiana University found people who wrote letters expressing thanks to someone “had more gratitude-related brain activity” than those who hadn’t practiced being grateful.
Research has shown people who express their gratitude are happier, healthier and have more energy. People who say thank you are more resilient and show signs of more impulse control. Therefore, I challenge you to put pen to paper and with honesty and sincerity, write out the words you’ve been meaning to tell someone.
