The Express Thanks Challenge invites you to write 20 handwritten thank you notes within the next 30 days—an average of five per week. It may seem old fashioned, but there’s nothing like a thank you note to share your sincere appreciation for someone.

While expressing thanks seems like something we only do for others, when we do it we experience some amazing benefits, like feeling less stress and being more forgiving. When we have a mindset of gratitude, we are more empathetic and have stronger relationships.
