A very interesting article about the link between greeting cards and your health emerged from the PGs Worldwide trade magazine March 2013 edition, .
Quote: Results from a series of scientific laboratory experiments, as explained by respected cognitive neuroscientist and psychologist Dr Lynda Shaw, confirm that greeting cards are officially good for your health.
As part of a recent study, the brain’s emotional activity was measured as a result of receiving a handwritten card. The experiment involved volunteer women being fitted with a cap and electrodes which measured changes in voltage caused by cognitive activity in the brain.
The experiments, commissioned by Royal Mail in connection with Mother’s Day Cards, showed electrical activity in the mum’s brain saw a greater positive emotional response to handwritten letters and cards when compared to electronic messages such as social network messages and emails.
The findings of these experiments, not surprisingly, sparked media interest. The Greeting Cards Association (GCA's) chief executive Sharon Little, together with Dr Lynda Shaw, were involved in a series of Media interviews connected to this as well as general Mother’s Day discussions.
As Sharon commented “ How great it is to be involved in an industry which can now officially claim that scientifically it improves people’s well-being. How many other trades can say that they really do up the nation’s happiness?” End of Quote
