“Appreciation is a wonderful thing, it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” – Voltaire

The notion that a little goes a long way is one that’s often shared in relation to celebrating even the smallest of wins. Similarly, a simple thank you can have such a big, positive impact on those receiving your gratitude – and to you as well.

Many studies document the health benefits of expressing gratitude, ranging from better sleep to improved health. With such enticing benefits, it’s no wonder many are adopting an attitude of gratitude in every aspect of their lives.

While the individual benefits of showing gratitude are something to aspire to, the impact of your simple “thank you,” on others is something even better as these 5benefits will show.

It boosts confidence

When you thank others for whatever kind of help or service they’ve provided, your gratitude sends a message to them that they’ve done well. The sense of accomplishment gives their confidence a massive boost.

One great example of both parties gaining something from being thankful is in the workplace setting. Showing gratitude to your employees often leads to abetter work environment with a team of confident people who return their appreciation for your gratefulness with an improved work ethic.

It leads to a better mood

Few things can get your mood up like knowing you’re the reason why someone else is smiling. Some researchers observed that health and happiness are benefits of receiving thanks and giving it as well.

The concept of finding happiness in making others happy is nothing new, but unlike most people believe, it isn’t limited to buying extravagant gifts or showering people with money. The simple act of saying thank you can turn a frown upside down and leave you with a warm feeling similar to how you’d feel when you know you got someone a gift they’ve always wanted.

It promotes good relationships

A grateful world is a happy world and a happy world fosters good relationships.The positive energy that showing appreciation generates is a good foundation for all kinds of relationships, from friendships to more intimate partnerships.

When you show gratitude to others, they in turn share those positive feelings with the people around them, including their loved ones – as you will also do with the people around you.

It spreads positivity

It’s always been said that “what goes around comes around,” and that’s often a principle that guides our behavior. In some ways, this theory of reciprocity applies when it comes to giving and receiving gratitude

Often when you put out good things and positivity into the world, whether by random acts of kindness or something as seemingly benign as saying thank you, you get back the same positive energy – a phenomenon many like to call karma.

“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy orgood within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times.” –John O’Donohue
