Need some ideas on how to show thankfulness? Here are some amazing examples!
Expressing gratitude is one of the easiest ways to lift your mood and feel great! But what exactly does this look like?
Let’s be honest: We could all show a little more gratitude. And sometimes, showing gratitude is the one step we need to take in order to step into more happiness!
There are so many ways you can show gratitude on any given day. Sometimes it’s a matter of just switching it up and trying a new way of expressing your gratitude so you can focus on what’s positive and become a little happier.
Here are some ideas of how you can express gratitude anytime, anywhere!
1 – Give a detailed example of appreciation
Give a detailed example of your gratitude to someone in your life, whether it’s in a professional or personal relationship. Provide examples, explain the situation and what exactly you appreciate about it. Even if it’s a small thing they did that made you feel valued, expressing your appreciation to them will have a lasting impact!
2 – Give out compliments
Giving out compliments is very simple. Did you notice a coworker do a really great job on a task or project recently? Or perhaps somebody in your family made you a really great meal. You can even simply compliment how great somebody looks. There are endless possibilities when it comes to giving compliments, but this is a great way to express some positivity (and maybe even make a new friend at the same time)!
3 – Random acts of kindness
Doing random acts of kindness gives you such a deep feeling of positivity, but also shares the positivity with others! What are some acts of kindness you can do? Here’s a list to start you out:
- Hold the door open for somebody
- Carry things for somebody if they have a lot on their hands (literally)
- Buy a coffee for the person behind you in line
These are just some simple ways that take no time out of your day that can really impact someone’s day in a positive way.
