The Importance of Expressing Gratitude

Expressing gratitude is important for a few reasons. First, it's polite and shows that you appreciate what someone has done for you. Second, it helps build relationships. People love to feel appreciated, and thanking someone for something they've done makes them more likely to help out again in the future. Finally, gratitude is good for your mental health. It can help you feel happier and more positive overall. 

 It's no secret that expressing gratitude makes people feel good. In fact, gratitude is one of the most important emotions we can experience because it has such a positive impact on our overall well-being. According to recent studies, gratitude not only makes us happier but also healthier, more productive, and more connected to others

 But why is gratitude so important? What benefits does it offer us?

  • It's hard to be unhappy when we're grateful for the good things in our lives. According to one study, gratitude increases our overall happiness by 25%. 
  • Gratitude makes us healthier. Grateful people experience better physical health and fewer symptoms of illness. They also have stronger immune systems.
  • Gratitude makes us more productive. People who are grateful are more likely to achieve their goals and be successful in their pursuits. They're also more likely to help others achieve their goals.
  • Gratitude makes us more connected to others. Grateful people have stronger relationships and are more likely to be helpful and supportive of others.

So it's definitely worth taking the time to write a handwritten note expressing your thanks!

How Handwritten Notes Express Gratitude Better Than Email

There are a few reasons why handwritten notes are better than email when it comes to expressing gratitude. 

 First, a handwritten note is more personal. It shows that you took the time to sit down and write a letter specifically for the person you're thanking. Email is less personal and can often feel like a chore rather than something special. Second, email can be easily forgotten. A handwritten note will likely be kept longer as a keepsake, while email is often quickly deleted or filed away in a folder and forgotten about. Third, handwritten notes are more memorable. People love getting mail other than bills and advertisements, and a handwritten note will be sure to stick out in someone's inbox. 

 It should be no surprise, though. How many times have you gotten excited when an email arrived in your inbox? Probably not nearly as often as when a handwritten note arrives with the mailman. There's something visceral about reading a card that someone penned by hand. It's as if the sender is reaching out across the distance to touch your heart.

 "Your kindness means more to me than you could ever know." 

 "I'm so grateful for everything you've done for me." 

 "Your support has meant the world to me." 

 "Thank you for your friendship/love/support." 

 "I don't know what I would do without you." 

 "Thank you for being my rock during tough times." 

 "Your friendship means everything to me." 

 "I'm so thankful for the time we've spent together." 

 "Thank you for being such a great friend."

"I don't know what I would do without you by my side." 

 "Thank you for being such a great support system." 

 "Your friendship means everything to me, and I'm so grateful for it." 

 "You're a light when times are dark and my best friend when I need one." 

 "I'm so happy that you've shared the last few years with me." 

 "You didn't have to do it, but you did, and I'm so grateful." 

 "Thank you for always being there for me." 

 "Thank you for always being there for me when I need someone to talk to."

 No matter what words you choose, make sure your handwriting is neat and legible. Nothing says "I didn't care enough to take the time to write a proper thank you" like sloppy writing.

 Or better yet, let Simply Noted do the work for you.
