When is the last time you wrote a letter or a postcard to someone while you were traveling? The art of writing may seem passé in our age of Instagram, but this simple act can save your friendships and boost your wellness. Researchers at Kent State University found that writing to maintain social connections three times a month increases happiness and overall life satisfaction. Now you can hunt for the perfect postcard, the most unique international stamp, or wait until you return home and turn your favorite photograph from the trip into a one-of-a-kind card.
