The Holiday season is great for a lot of things! The weather, the food, family and friends together after slogging through the entire year, and of course, gifts! Receiving and giving gifts are some of the best things about the holiday season! But what’s more important than all of these things, is saying two words – thank you – to people that have been there the most for you during the course of the year. That’s right, being kind and expressing gratitude in the form of saying ‘thank you’ can go a long way!
As people so caught up in the daily humdrum of life, we often forget how to say thanks! It may sound bizarre, but when the holidays are around the corner and you want to express your love, affection and gratefulness to people, you find yourself in a slump. So how can you really express thanks to the people that have always been there for you?
1. Say Thanks in Person
It can never be enough to thank a person for things they have done for you. It takes a huge amount of reflection to understand the people who have been there for you in your life, and have helped you become the person you are today, even if in a minuscule way. Go up to people, call them on the phone or take time out to video call them – and say thank you in person (or virtually, as may be possible). Making eye contact to express thanks can really warm someone’s heart and are considered excellent manners.
