Saying “thank you” is the ultimate win/win. Research shows that expressing gratitude increases feelings of personal well being. Our official day of giving thanks isn't the only day we can say "thank you". Perhaps all of us can take a moment to consider how we might make gratitude an ongoing part of our lives.
If you are looking for someone to practice your “thank you” on, start close to home. John Gottman, Executive Director of the Relationship Research Institute of Seattle says: “Masters of relationships have a habit of scanning the world for things they can thank their partner for. People whose relationships go down the tubes scan the world for their partner’s mistakes.”
