1. Say A Kind Word
The quickest, simplest and easiest way to demonstrate gratitude is to say thanks to another. If you don’t have a specific item to express thanks for, saying a few kind words is just as effective.
2. Be Appreciative
Tell your loved ones something specific you appreciate about them.
3. Listen Intently
I know I’m guilty of sometimes thinking so hard about what I’m about to say next that I fail to grasp the essence of what another person is saying. That’s a common behavior that can be corrected, although it takes effort and practice.
4. Leave Sticky Notes
Drop an encouraging sticky note in a semi-hidden place for a loved o ne. If you like to live on the wild side you can cover a small wall with encouraging and kind sticky notes for a friend or family member.
5. Be There For Someone Who Is Hurting
Everyone needs a supportive friend or a shoulder to cry on once in a while. Allowing them to vent about their bad day or cry over losing a loved one can be a blessing to someone who needs it.
