Like a vitamin for your relationships

In 2017 I had the painful realization that my social life had accidentally slipped mostly into fractured text conversations and watching my friends’ lives play out on social media. Like most people I knew, busy schedules and tight budgets made it hard to keep up with regular calls and in-person meetups. I felt overstimulated by technology, superficially connected, and I craved something deeper. 

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."

Benefits

Feel the difference for yourself.
stress-relief-icon

Stress relief

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.

stronger-memories-icon

Stronger memories

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.

healthier-happier-icon

Healthier and happier

Maintaining strong social bonds does more than help you feel good, it also helps you live longer. Yes, really. The most comprehensive study of emotional wellbeing in history found that quality relationships are the #1 predictor of lifespan and overall happiness — more than wealth, fame, IQ, or genes.

A healthy balance

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.
