Do write a thank-you note as often as indicated

19apr29

I came across these articles and I fully agree with the benefits of writing thank-you notes and I will advocate practicing it as often as indicated and in whatever media, SMS or text messages, voice calls, social media, emails, note cards, or verbal.

Benefits:

  • Strengthen relationships.
  • Teach you how to be grateful.
  • Know the feedback.
  • Increase your mental health – increase your own happiness, mood and well-being.
  • Brighten recipient’s day – increase recipient’s happiness, mood and well-being.

Why You Should Write More Thank You Notes

Gist:

Writing thank-you notes is not just good manners. It can have a strong psychological effect for both the sender and receiver, suggests research published in the September 2018 issue of Psychological Science.

While most people consider showing an expression of gratitude a nice gesture, many people struggle to do it.

Not surprisingly, the letter writers felt more positive afterward. However, they overestimated how awkward the recipients would feel receiving their letter and underestimated how positive it would make them feel. This may explain why more people don’t engage in expressions of gratitude, according to the researchers. They suggest that understanding the gesture’s impact may help people do it more often. So take the time to write and send a well-deserved thank you note. It will be good for both of you.


Research has shown time and time again that being grateful is good for your health, mood and general well-being. In fact, it’s one of the easiest things you can do to increase your mental health.

Saying thanks can improve somebody’s own happiness, and it can improve the well-being of another person as well.
