What makes you happy? Is it doing things for yourself or for others? Studies show that gratitude is one of the surest ways to make YOURSELF happier (and luckier!), while at the same time making someone else’s day. Gratitude is so powerful that it can even make you a more creative thinker, in effect making you more successful in every aspect of your life. Building a “gratitude habit” is the mission of my husband Mike’s new company, Handwrittn.
Handwrittn is a monthly subscription service that delivers beautifully designed “blank” cards, along with stamps and envelopes, to you door each month. Every month there is a new theme and your shipment will contain four different and uniquely designed cards that align with that theme. You can use the cards any way you’d like – a thank you for a gift (the most obvious), to wish someone good luck on a big race, presentation, or test, to express sympathy, to congratulate someone, or to just simply let a special person know you’re thinking of them. Mike’s blog and newsletter (sign up here!) can give you even more ideas on who to and how to write these special notes. No matter, what a handwritten card impacts two lives.
Handwrittn officially launched just this month and the first shipments go out next week. If you’d like to be included, be sure to sign up before Wednesday to be one of the pioneer members! To celebrate, we’re also giving away one free set of cards to one lucky reader (if you are already a subscriber, we’ll refund your money for the first month). You don’t have to sign up for the membership to receive your cards – we’ll just get them to your door.
In order to enter the giveaway, please do each of the following:
- Comment on this blog post that you’d like to enter the contest.
- Share Handwrittn on at least one social media platform (mention @fitnessfatale on Instagram and @handwrittncards on Twitter; if you share on Facebook and win, we’ll just ask you to screen shot your share for us).
- Sign up for Handwrittn’s newsletter here if you haven’t already (top bar of all pages or on contact page).
I’ll announce the winner on Friday and all you’ll have to do is give me your address and you cards will be in your hands by February 1st!
I couldn’t be more excited for Mike and this journey. I’d love nothing more than for you to check out his website, read his blog and if you love it, spread the love for his company. Even better, sign up! Trust me, you’ll be grateful that you did.
Do you write thank you cards? When was the last time you received a card in the mail? How did it make you feel?
