Does thank you really help?

Short answer. YES!

It’s easy to say two words, but a real thank you is about much more. Thank you brings people together and increases the mental wellbeing of both the thanker and the thanked.

When you thank someone, you create a relationship with them, however brief. To thank someone is to acknowledge that they have played a part in your life.

First and foremost, the most important person to be grateful for is you.

How’s your gratitude attitude?

  1. Keep a gratitude journal. Make a practice of writing down three to five things you are grateful for—every day—and explain why each one makes you grateful.
  2. Before going to sleep each night, call to mind one or two things you are grateful for.
  3. Write a thank you letter. Write a letter to someone in your present or past to whom you’re grateful.
