Email or Thank You Note?

18 Jul

It’s Friday and I was thinking ahead to the weekend.  We are invited to two parties and of course I am planning what I will bring. Then I started to think about making sure I have enough stationery and stamps for writing a thank you note afterwards to thank the host.  I wonder how many people actually still take the time to write their host a thank you card.  Or is it now more acceptable to simply send a text or email after a party?

I feel that a handwritten thank you note shows your host how much you really appreciate the time they took to have the party.  And honestly, who doesn’t like getting mail that isn’t a bill or advertisement?  It’s always fun to get a handwritten thank you note in the mail!  No matter what you believe, it’s always in good taste to thank your host either way.  So now I’d love to know what you think is acceptable … an email/text or a handwritten note?  Tell me what you think and why in the comments below!

Why Handwriting is Important

17 Jun

Someone at work just shared an article with me about the importance of handwriting.  I’ve always felt strongly that it is in fact important.  I remember being in college and writing down my notes during a lecture. There is science showing that writing your notes down actually helps us to remember the information better than just reading it.  A new study is showing that handwriting helps activate a part of our brain for learning.

What’s Lost as Handwriting Fades,” by New York Times writer Maria Konnikova, talks about the studies associated with these findings.  I found the article fascinating and worth reading as messages are being sent more and more through electronic devices.  It also reminds me to journal my thoughts and write that thank you card.  There is science proving it’s good for my brain!

How do you feel about handwriting?  Do you think it’s important?
