Writing things down by hand is one of the most powerful ways to make sure you remember it. You’ve heard that before, you’ll hear it again. Still, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll start practicing the helpful habit of handwriting notes.
However, the holidays offer the perfect chance to start. We’ve come up with a few ways to make handwriting easy and helpful.
The holiday season is a perfect reminder to reach out to family and friends who you’re not in touch with as often as you’d like. Maybe Aunt Sherry had a tough year and could use an especially nice letter, or maybe that old college roommate hasn’t heard from you in three years. Write reminders on Post-it® Page Markers, stick them on the calendar on days you’re committing to writing the letter, and you’ll have an easy way to ensure you stay in touch with family and friends.
Get a 2016 calendar before this year is over and mark it with 2015 memories. Post-it® Notes work perfectly to write down when something big happened in your family. Then when you get to that point in next year’s calendar, you can reminisce about the last year’s milestones.
When that great gift idea pops into your head, grab a Post-it® Super Sticky Note and write it down right away. Too often the best ideas come and fade away, so take a few seconds to write down the thought and save it for good.
