Say Thank You Today — and Every Day…

Even though many of us have numerous occasions to feel grateful in both our personal and professional lives, we often miss out on opportunities to say thank you — especially at work. Failing to express gratitude is a missed opportunity. Research finds that it allows you to savor positive experiences, cope with stressful circumstances, and strengthen your relationships with colleagues. And sending a message of gratitude can also have powerful and long-lasting effects on the recipient, who will feel valued and motivated to help others.

So send some thanks today — to colleagues, mentors, mentees, family, friends, or anyone who’s helped you along the way. But don’t wait another year to do it again! Whether you’re a CEO or someone looking for your first job, think about incorporating gratitude into your daily, weekly, and monthly routines. It may make your journey, wherever you’re going, a little brighter.
