How to send a letter to the future you

How to send a letter to the future you

As we enter a new year and decade, it is the perfect time to check in on ourselves, look at what we’ve accomplished so far, and reassess our goals for the future.

You can do this by writing a letter to your future self as a reminder of where you’ve been in life and your current aspirations as well as a motivating message to go further.

There are many tools that can help you send this letter. Apart from the analog time capsule, you can also use note-taking apps or access special websites such as FutureMe or Letter to my future self.

After you write the note, set the time you want it to be sent – be it a week or five years from now – and fill out the email address where you want to receive the message.
