Letter writing may seem like an outdated mode of communication, but it has many advantages.

With social media, email and mobile phones, you certainly don’t need to write letters to communicate to your friends and family, and it definitely isn’t the quickest form of communication. However, letters will always be a cherished way to stay connected, and it has many benefits. In our previous blog, we went over several of the benefits of writing letters. Here are a couple more reasons to start writing letters regularly:

#7. Lasting Memories

A letter isn’t just a way to send a message, it’s a way to create a memory that your loved one will cherish for years to come. Years from now, your loved one’s great grandchildren will be reading your thoughts and wondering what kind of person you were, which is pretty neat.

#8. Tradition

People have been writing letters to one another for millions of years. Although they probably didn’t look much like letters today, many different ancient societies wrote letters, including India, Rome, Greece and China. It’s only in the past couple of decades that letter writing has become virtually obsolete, but you can help to keep the tradition alive!

Although calling a friend, sending them a text or personal messaging them on Facebook may be faster and more convenient than writing letters, these methods of communication will never match the benefits that come with letter writing. We have just two more letter writing benefits to go over with you, so please make sure you stay tuned for our next blog!
