The very best kind of letters are the ones we write to ourselves; in moments of strength, bravery, excitement, positivity, to be read during in the moments we need help to find that strength, bravery, excitement, and positivity.
One of my favourite The Mamma Return's activities is letter writing. Mammas are asked to write themselves a letter for: their first day back, their best day back, and their worst day back.
Imagine arriving back at work and seeing that letter sitting on your desk? You open it and the words you need to hear flow out and surround you. How would that make you feel?
Not a letter writer? Try post-it notes. Put one in your lunch, under your keyboard, in your locked drawer to find. Short, sweet words to lift you up and keep you going. Perhaps as simple as 'You are Awesome.'
Prefer an image? Hide some pictures or a beautiful scene or person to find.
Recently I left myself a post-it message in a book I tend to pick up when I want to reign in a 'no good, very bad day.' Finding that note was all I needed to jump up out of my chair with a new perspective.
You know best what you need to hear in those moments. Get writing!
