National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week

TEXT SIZE: A A A


This week is National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week and everyone is encouraged to write a note or letter to someone who brightens your day, helped you accomplish something, takes care of your child, car, pet, or neighborhood, makes your world a better place, or just brings you joy!

The weirdest thing is that not only will you help someone feel better about him or herself and rewarded for a good deed, you will feel pretty good, too! Writing thank you notes used to be much more common and I think it would do us all a lot of good to do it more often! For some help, see this article about how to write a thank you note.

For me, I will start here - thanks to each of you - the Teen Health 411 readers!
