The importance of saying thanks

As Thanksgiving approaches so does our need for reflection and inner journeys of self-improvement, but in order to get to that place of betterment, we need to undergo a rather deep research into ourselves and our immediate environment. However, the road to a better self is rocky and long and change won’t happen overnight. Nevertheless, if you want to take a big first step towards a better version of yourself, you may start by being grateful.

Being thankful makes you automatically more likeable and agreeable. Further, gratitude is scientifically considered as a constructive emotion that provides a feeling of security and peace of mind, which of course has a positive impact in your life and the lives of the people around you. In fact, Hans Seyle discovered during his famous research about stress that “thankfulness is directly related to success in life”.

And just like with success, attitude is everything. A grateful attitude will provide you with a practical approach towards your problems resulting in unexpected and sometimes quick solutions to everyday problems that might have cause you anxiety in the past. Being successful is not about having more than others or having everything, being successful is about feeling happy, satisfied and thankful for what you have.

A big part of showing gratefulness is being thoughtful and kind to other people, especially the people who have been there for you in your time of need and the people who make your life better with their sole presence.

Contrary to popular belief, showing thankfulness is not about buying expensive gifts or throwing over-the-top parties or gatherings, it’s about being honest and offering gestures that come from the heart. A simple handwritten note can go a long way when it comes to showing gratitude and kindness. If you want to go the extra mile, don’t buy an expensive gift, buy something you know the other person will enjoy, or even better something you can both share or use to bond over it. Your relationship with that person will not only grow and solidify but it will also help you grow and improve as an individual.
