For the next year I challenge you to write a letter to yourself each week. Writing letters to yourself is a great way to connect with yourself. And get a better idea of what you are really feeling and truly thinking. So if this appeals to you then keep reading for these 52 letter to yourself prompts to write this year.
Before we get into these letter to yourself prompts I want to share some tips for writing these each week and some of the benefits of writing letters to yourself.
Tips for writing letters to yourself each week:
- Make it apart of your weekly routines! Do you normally do laundry on Sundays? Then add this to your Sunday routine and do it after laundry.
- Keep your journal somewhere visible (like your nightstand) so when you see it you remember.
- Be patient with yourself! It takes time to build new habits and routines. So if you set out to write your letter on Sundays and you forget and have to write it on Tuesday that is fine. Life happens! So be patient with yourself and remember that trying and not being perfect is better than not trying at all.
Benefits of following these letter to yourself prompts:
- Writing letters to yourself can help with self awareness. It makes you realize how you are behaving and why you are behaving like that.
- It also motivates you to work on bettering yourself. And regular boosts of motivation are so important for living your best life.
- They also help with personal growth! Personal growth has a lot of elements but one of the most important is making an effort to understand where you can improve and how you can actually improve those areas. And writing letters to yourself is an important tool for that part of personal growth.
- They are also a fun way to organize your thoughts and make sure that you are keeping track of your current thoughts and emotions.
Now grab your favorite journal and let’s get into these letter prompts!
