A simple “thanks” can lift the spirit. Not just by receiving thanks, but also by expressing gratitude. An article published by Harvard University, “Giving thanks can make you happier,” describes how “gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness.” Cultivating gratitude may help people appreciate the positive things they have in their lives.

This week, try boosting your own gratitude attitude by spreading thanks to friends, relatives and even strangers.

5 Ways to Say Thanks

  1. Write thank you cards to people who gave you gifts over the holidays.
  2. Text a friend and let them know how much you appreciate them.
  3. Tell someone why they are important to you.
  4. Go above and beyond to thank a stranger who does something nice for you.
  5. Call a senior friend or relative and tell them how grateful you are to have them in your life.

Do you feel happier when you express gratitude?

  17. I am so greatful for the seniors that i help everyday. I love to see them smile and listen to them talk about their families and traditions that they had and just how their families are growing and having new great grand babies and the expressions on their faces. It is amazing just how much we can learn and enjoy their stories. Without them we wouldn’t have the enjoyment in our life and theirs.

  18. Reached out to several people I had not spoken for quite a while, and prayed with a couple of them. I took a friend who have MS to get a long winter coat so she can cover her legs when she’s in her wheel chair.

  20. I recently went on Facebook’s Messenger App and I saw a truly wonderful text message that a friend of mine sent to me… Inspired by the message it contained I wrote one in my own words to express the feelings that I have in my heart for so many of my close friends and what I would love each of them to know about how they have individually touched my heart and made a positive affect on my life by their presence… These were all the things I would want them to know and I would love it if I could tell them all this, in case (God Forbid) they were taken from me here on Earth and they were no longer here for me to say to them! It evoked such a beautiful response from each and every one of them back to me that I sat there in tears reading each and every one of their responses back to me! It was the most emotional day I can remember ever having & it helped all of us say what we’ve always felt in our hearts before it was too late to do it in person… It was actually the best thing I think I ever did to express everything I have in my heart and deep in my soul for each and every person who has touched my heart ❤️ in a very profound way! So I would say this is one off of my bucket list now, as now all the people who I love know exactly what their presence in my life has meant to me and how much I love and appreciate them for all they are to me! And now for anyone new that enters my life after this I will express to them on a yearly basis just what they mean to me too, so I keep the gratitude and love moving forward in my life! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 💕 Julie
