Make Homemade Cards and Actually Send Them
Do you remember the utter joy of opening your mailbox as a kid and seeing an envelope with your name on it? Most people don’t send snail mail anymore but with some extra hours to create, nutritionist and celebrity chef Serena Poon has started making handmade cards again. “It’s a beautiful, calming outlet to escape back into because you need to tap into your heart and the creative part of your mind to do so,” she shares. “The process also shifts us into our parasympathetic nervous system, helping to put us into a more relaxed state of being, especially given the uncertainties of the ever-changing state of the world right now.” And as a bonus, she has been spreading the surprise of joy to her loved ones, creating a ripple effect of goodwill when we need it the most.
