One thing that really helps with social isolation is to receive a card. Another one, AND the best way to increase the chances of receiving a card, is to send a card!
While working at home during our State’s Stay at Home order, I have challenged myself to write and mail at least one card a day. I started sending them to family, looking up their address each day. Then I remembered that I have the addresses for all my family and friends in one place: my Christmas card list! Now I just open that list each day, pick a name, write them a card, and the address is right there to use.
I have already heard back from several family members thrilled to get a card during this difficult time. So join me in tapping into your Christmas Card list now, and send each person on that list a card in the coming weeks, letting them know you are thinking about them. They will appreciate it—and it will make you feel better as well.
