Ways to Show Gratitude…

  • Be an active listener Show you gratitude to others by really listening to what they have to say.
  • Give out compliments Make someone’s day by giving out compliments on little things like a great shirt, a nice smile, or on a job well done.
  • Make eye contact When interacting with people, make eye contact and show you are really present in the conversation.
  • Give a detailed example of appreciation Let someone know exactly why you are grateful to have them in your life by citing an example of things they have done or said on your behalf. 5. Be thoughtful of others While you must take care of you, it is important to also think of others first. Consider someone else’s feelings with every action and word.
  • Volunteer for unpleasant tasks Offer to do a chore or errand. By doing these tasks for someone you make their day easier.
  • Give a hug Make a true connection with those you love and are grateful to have in your life by giving hugs when greeting, saying goodbye, or saying thanks.
  • Just be there   Spend time with others especially during difficult times and just be there without your phone and other distractions.
  • Be gracious when challenged When someone challenges your actions or words, still show grace by listening to what they say and being polite. You never really know what someone else might be going through so don’t take their actions personally and show them kindness (even if it’s really hard to do).
  • Offer congratulations  When someone you know is celebrating an achievement, offer your sincere congratulations even if you are not the winner.
