"My friends and family who have received my letters raved about how great it was to get a handwritten letter and not just a text. I recommend them to everyone."
As an experiment, I wrote 30 letters in 30 days. At the end of the month, I was hooked. I felt mentally healthier than I had in years — reconnected to the tangible “real world" and noticeably closer to my favorite people. I started Nice because I realized how many other people were craving a similar change and looking for tools to help. I believe in the power of this timeless practice and want it to be an easy, accessible option for anyone seeking balance in our increasingly digital world. I hope it makes you feel good and brings you closer to the people you love.

"I don't always have time to reply to texts right away and I hate how that can convey that I'm ignoring or not prioritizing that person. When I send letters with friends, there's no distraction. Just heartfelt conversation that picks up where the last letter left off."

Taking regular, mindful breaks throughout your day has been proven to reduce stress and increase focus, motivation & creativity. Writing to people by hand helps you relax and recenter — plus it nourishes your relationships without the distractions of a smartphone.
Physical material like paper is more “real” to the brain than digital content, because it engages emotional and spatial processing. That’s why you feel so weird-in-a-good-way when you hold your favorite childhood toy, a homemade gift, or a letter from someone you love.
Maintaining strong social bonds does more than help you feel good, it can also help you live longer. The most comprehensive study of emotional wellbeing in history found that quality relationships are the #1 predictor of lifespan and overall happiness.
Trying to cut back on social media?
You’ll need more than willpower alone. Research shows the more you try to supress your thoughts the more likely you are to revert back to old habits. Instead, it’s been proven that the easiest way to succeed is to incorporate a new, positive activity into your routine.
