DISCOVER Gratitude Letter Writing

Writing to heal has long been established as an effective tool in psychological research, but writing to grow, thrive and flourish is a relatively new concept. In our fast-paced world, the art of letter writing has fallen out of fashion, yet it seems it’s poised for a resurgence. The early research is promising—pausing, putting pen to paper, and expressing gratitude in letter form has significant positive impacts at the individual and relationship levels. Gratitude is often thought of as thankfulness, appreciation, or a sense of wonder. Taking the time to craft one thoughtful gratitude letter, written and hand-delivered, is one of the original positive interventions studied by positive psychologists. More recent research suggests that writing multiple letters over time can have even greater positive outcomes. By intentionally practicing skills like Gratitude Letter Writing, we can all learn to experience, enhance and express more gratitude.
