Ways to Express Gratitude

An open journal that says
The month of November is a good time to express gratitude, especially with Thanksgiving at the end of the month. We’ve decided to share with you some ways that you can express your thanks in this week’s Sunset Palms Blog.

Write a Letter

Take some time to think about the many people who have affected your life in a positive manner and write down the experiences you share. When you’ve figured out who you’d like to thank, start by picking someone and writing a personalized letter to them. It may seem old fashioned or a little cheesy, but this small act will show your gratitude to those who have changed your life and may even make their day. There’s no limit to how many letters of gratitude you can write, but make sure you make each one sincere!

Small Gifts

Giving gifts and receiving gifts can be a part of how someone shows and feels love. Think of someone who you want to show appreciation to, and while you’re out shopping, try to consider a gift that you think they would appreciate. The gift doesn’t have to be big, as a small sincere gesture can have more impact than a large generic one. If you live close by to the person you wish to give the gift to, take the time to give it to them personally.

Gratitude Journals

Since there are so many, it can be easy to forget the good times to be thankful, which is why we suggest keeping a gratitude journal. With a journal, you can keep track of the many things you can be grateful for, big or small. As you write them down, you can look back upon the things that have happened, bring them to your remembrance, and help you feel gratitude. If you feel inspired to do so through your reflection, you can write letters of thanks or buy a small gift for those who have touched your life.
