5 simple ways to show your gratitude this November
Gratitude. Tis the season! It’s time for us to count our blessings. Grand gestures are great, but who has time when it takes days to prepare a Thanksgiving feast?! A simple, elegant thanks can still show you care. Plus, it might just make you feel better about the state of the world and your life. After all, science shows giving thanks is good for your health.
With some DIY and thoughtful reflection, you can express your gratitude to everyone in your life with just a little time and effort. Here are 5 utterly simple ways to show you are thankful. These aren’t expensive or lavish, but they’re packed with heart.
1. WRITE A THANK YOU NOTE. FOR REAL.
Writing notes, cards, and letters on actual paper is becoming a lost art. Receiving real snail mail is always exciting. Fill someone’s mailbox with a little love!
2. GIVE SOMEONE A BOOST…WITH A COFFEE!
Does a co-worker deserve a special thanks? Bring them a coffee or tea in the morning. Or, there’s an app for that! Use Starbucks’ app to gift your friend their favorite bev.
3. ASK “HOW CAN I HELP YOU TODAY?”
Ask and you shall receive. Or rather, ask and you can properly give. Sometimes all you have to do is ask someone how you can be of help to them in the moment. Maybe it’s providing care for a child or pet while a friend or loved one takes a break. Or it might be as simple as fixing the printer at work. Just ask.
