3 Ways To Say Thank You

Gratitude is a hugely important part of life. Although it’s entirely possible to go through every day, week, month, year, and even entire lifetime without actually thanking anyone for anything or feeling grateful for anything, the reality is that, this will only make you unhappy. It could even lead to mental health issues such as depression. The best thing to do is to understand that being grateful is good for you and everyone around you, and even on the worst days, you can be grateful for something. 

When it comes to gratitude and other people, saying thank you is crucial. This can make a big difference to your general wellbeing and to theirs. It can strengthen relationships and fix many problems. Sometimes, however, saying thank you might not feel like it’s enough, and you may want to add something to your thanks; read on for some ideas on what you can do. 

Give A Gift 

One of the simplest and most obvious ways to add to your thanks is to give someone a gift. In fact, this might even be easier than actually saying the words thank you for some people. It’s important to know that the size or cost of the gift is not the main factor; something simple and inexpensive will be just as well received as something that cost a fortune if your heart is in the right place. 

One thing that will always be appreciated is something personal. Take some favorite family photos and use box picture frames to make them look great and so they can be hung on the wall, for example. Or, buy the recipient the new book from their favorite author, showing you know them and what they would. Anything that thought has gone into will be perfect. 

Take Them Out For A Meal

Food has been a way that people have expressed themselves and their feelings for centuries, and probably longer. It’s such an important part of our lives – we wouldn’t survive without it, after all – but food is much more than a necessity; it’s something that can speak a thousand words. 

If you want to say thank you to someone, taking them out for a meal will work wonders, and will put your point across perfectly. Most people have a favorite restaurant or at least a favorite type of food, and if you pick a restaurant that caters to that, you know they’ll enjoy the meal. Or, why not let them choose where you go as long as you pick up the tab? 

Pay It Forward 

Sometimes, the help we get can come from complete strangers, meaning that there isn’t an easy way (or perhaps any way) to thank them. Or perhaps you do know the person who helped you, only they wouldn’t be comfortable with any thanks. In this case, don’t worry; there is still something you can do – you can pay it forward. 

Paying it forward means that, when someone does something for you that you’re grateful for (it can be anything, from helping you cross the street to saying good morning to giving you a gift or anything else), you do something good for someone else. You are effectively passing on the kindness to another person, and perhaps in turn they will do the same. You might be starting a long chain of gratitude and kind acts in this way. 

Some of the things you could do include:

  • Donating to charity on their behalf
  • Paying for a stranger’s coffee
  • Volunteer your time
  • Give a random gift
