Day 19: Write a Letter to Your Present Self
Task: Handwrite a letter to your present self from your future self. What advice would you give? What reassurances would you give?
Why: This is a powerful exercise that builds your confidence and ability to self-soothe. When we write (pen is preferred, but you can type), we clarify our thoughts. We get to crystallize our concerns, which paradoxically lowers the power they have over us. We get to set our long-term intentions and improve our actions because we’ve been comforted and guided.
