The Heartspoken Movement is about harnessing the power of pen and paper to change the world — one note at a time! You love getting a handwritten note in the mail. It’s easy to give that same joy to someone else, but it’s also easy to make excuses not to.

One simple way to become a more practiced note writer is to make it more convenient and fun. This strategy is effective for developing almost any good habit, because it minimizes the obstacles between inertia and action. That’s human nature.

If you’re serious about writing more heartspoken notes:

· Keep your writing supplies together on your desk or in a basket.

· Find a comfortable place to write.

· Make it a ritual.

· Choose stationery and pens you love.

· Keep track for a sense of accomplishment.

Remember this: every note you write is a gift of love and kindness.
