Make Card Writing a Simple Habit

With the convenience of technology, sending a quick message or email has become the norm in our daily communication. However, there’s something special about receiving a handwritten greeting card. It shows that someone has taken the time to think of you and put effort into creating a personalized message. At CheerNotes, we believe that nurturing relationships and friendships is important, and one way to do this is through the art of card writing. In this blog post, we’ll explore some tips on how to make card writing a simple habit.

    1. Set a specific time for card writing

The key to making anything a habit is consistency. If you set aside a specific time for card writing, it becomes easier to stick to it. It could be once a week or once a month, whatever works for you. It’s important to make it a routine, so you don’t forget to do it. It’s also helpful to pick a time when you are most creative or relaxed, whether that be first thing in the morning or before bed.

    2. Make it fun

Card writing doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be a fun and creative activity. Consider setting up a special space in your home where you can spread out all your supplies. Gather some stickers, stamps, and colored pens to make it more colorful and enjoyable. You could also put on some music or a podcast to make it more entertaining.

    3. Create a list of people to reach out to

Having a list of people you want to reach out to can make card writing more manageable. You don’t have to write a card for everyone you know, but rather focus on a few people you want to nurture your relationship with. It could be family members, friends, or colleagues. Having a list also helps you keep track of who you’ve sent cards to and who you still need to reach out to.

     4. Batch your cards

Batching your cards is a great way to save time and be more efficient. Set aside a specific time to write multiple cards at once. This not only helps you get into a rhythm but also saves you from having to gather your supplies and set up your space multiple times. You can also take advantage of the postage rate by sending multiple cards in one envelope.

     5. Get personalized cards

Sending a personalized card shows that you’ve put more effort into the message. At CheerNotes, we offer a wide range of greeting cards for all occasions. Our cards are handmade and can be customized with a personal message. Personalized cards are more memorable and show that you’ve put thought into the card.

     6. Take advantage of Forever stamps

The price of stamps in the US has gone up again, so it's important to be strategic when purchasing stamps. One tip is to grab Forever Stamps during your grocery trip, so you have a good supply on hand. Forever Stamps are always valid for sending a one-ounce letter, regardless of any future price increases.

In conclusion, making card writing a simple habit can bring immense benefits, both for the sender and the recipient. Taking a few minutes to express gratitude, show appreciation, or send well wishes can make someone's day and strengthen relationships. By setting a goal, choosing quality materials, and finding inspiration, anyone can easily make card writing a regular part of their routine. So why not start today and spread a little joy through the simple act of sending a card?
