Today is the start of Positive Mental Health Week, our Theme this year is
“Little Acts, Big Impacts”
we are giving you a challenge card today and we hope that you will all try to complete one challenge each day, each morning we will let you know why completing this Little Act/Challenge is good for your Mental Health.
Challenge 1: Today you are being asked to Write a Hand Written Thank You note to someone!
“The act of writing thank-you notes allows the gratitude you feel to trickle from your head, into your pen, and out into the world. That’s why we must preserve the art of sending thank-you notes.”
Write a thank-you note. You can make yourself happier and nurture your relationship with another person by writing a thank-you letter expressing your enjoyment and appreciation of that person's impact on your life. Send it, or better yet, deliver and read it in person if possible. Make a habit of sending at least one gratitude letter a month. Once in a while, write one to yourself.
Today, handwritten notes and cards are especially meaningful because most of our correspondence is done by email, Twitter, Facebook, texting or talking on the phone.
The more you practice gratitude, the more you can enjoy its psychological benefits.” These psychological benefits include a feeling of wellbeing and reduced depression.
In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.
We hope you all have a good week.
