How often do we go out to dinner and spend more time on the phone that we did talking to the people with us (sorry mom!)? When’s the last time you talked to your friend (and texting and Facebook doesn’t count)? Sometimes I want to unplug and connect with friends and family the good old way – through cards. Remember good old fashioned snail mail? I remember when I was younger I had a few pen pals from overseas, and I absolutely LOVED getting letters and cards from them in the mail. I would find myself rushing home from school to see if I had a new letter yet. Sincerely Box
does just that.
We get SO caught up in our busy and hectic lives (and I’m the first one to admit I’m guilty!) that we don’t take the time we should to just relax and do something fun and calming. To me, writing cards helps me to unwind. It helps me to relax after a long stressful day. It helps me to get my thoughts out of my head and onto paper. It makes me feel happy. It makes me feel connected to people. It puts a smile on their face too. Sincerely Box is a monthly box subscription that includes 4 cards and postage for the cards. I received my box last month and loved the bright colorful variety of cards that were in it! One was an Easter card, one was a birthday card, and the other two were just “happies.” When’s the last time you mailed a “happy” for no reason? I can’t remember either.
I’m teaming up with Sincerely Box to give away one box to one lucky reader so they can unplug and brighten someone’s day. It’s a win-win. You get a box in the mail to brighten your day, and then when you mail the cards, you brighten someone else’s day. It’s the gift to you that keeps on giving. What is your favorite way to unwind and relax?
