Showing gratitude for the people in our lives is a really important part of building personal happiness on a daily basis. We've come up with five awesome ways you can work gratitude in your routine today, and any day!
A genuine handwritten note never goes out of style. The personal aspect of it is something that doesn’t go unnoticed. Because letters are tangible, they are worth saving and get tucked away for later enjoyment! A short and sweet letter to someone you admire is a sure way to make their day!
Offer up your talents to those around you. Whether you’re a photographer who can take a few family photos, a writer who can lend a hand for someone looking to revamp their resume, or a great cook who can make a delicious dinner for a friend to brighten their evening, your skills can go to great use!
Tipping is a great way to show your appreciation in everyday situations! You may be dining out, grabbing a drink, hiring movers, getting a manicure, or catching a taxi ride. No matter the service, tip a little extra than usual and you’ll both be feeling the positivity!
Carry out a random act of kindness for someone you don’t know. Having no expectation/reward, you’ll for sure leave them better than you found them. You never know, someone may do the same for you one day!
It could be as simple as visiting a bookstore to find a new best seller to read together, going to the newest movie in theaters, or going for a bike ride and getting lost in a gorgeous part of town. Use what you know about their favorite things to do in their free time and run with it! No matter what you do, it’s the thought that counts!
