DAILY HAPPINESS TIP #42- Spread Holiday Cheers: Express Gratitude

The holiday season is not only a time for revelry but also of gratitude. Celebrated at the end of the year, it is a good time to reflect on the year that was and to look forward to the new one as well.

Counting our blessings, remembering those that have been there for us and expressing our gratitude to them is the best way to spread more happiness this holiday season. There are many ways to do this, here are some of them:

  1. dropping by and personally say thank you
  2. sending out a letter of thanks or a greeting card
  3. emailing photos and reconnect
  4. calling to express appreciation
  5. texting a cheerful message and letting the person know s/he is thought about
  6. giving a hug to show that your loved one is appreciated
  7. expressing gratefulness to God through prayers

C’mon, do yourself a favor and express gratefulness. It’ll not only make another person happy, but amazingly it’s also a sure way to lift your spirits…and the joy it brings will last longer than the good feeling one gets from eating delicious treats and sumptuous dishes or drinking expensive wines!

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
-William Arthur Ward
