6 Simple Ways to Show Your Gratitude This Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, as you gather with family and friends, don’t forget the true meaning of the holiday. It’s a time to come together and give thanks for what you have.

Give Thanks 

From your health to your family and friends, there’s so much to be thankful for. But people don’t always take the time to express their gratitude or realize their blessings. Here are some simple ways to give thanks:

1. Handwrite a letter or note 

Write a letter or note of thanks to someone who has made a difference in your life. Handwritten letters aren’t the norm anymore, but they mean so much more than a text message!

2. Donate to a charity

When you give back to others, you show gratitude for all you’ve been given. From money to supplies, every donation makes a difference. You can find countless charities that need donations by doing a quick search online. 

3. Volunteer your time  

Show your gratitude by being generous with your time. Make a difference by volunteering at a local shelter, a community center, or for a cause you’re passionate about. 

4. Count your blessings

Take a moment to reflect on the blessings in your life; things you may take for granted, like a great job, a loving family, your health, a home in a safe neighborhood, or having enough money to pay your bills. 

5. Nurture your relationships

Think of the people in your life who make it special. Whether it’s your family, friends, or co-workers, these relationships add value to your life. Show your gratitude by spending time with the people that matter to you. 

6. Show your love with food

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without enjoying delicious, comforting meals with loved ones. Whether you prepare a dish to share or spend time cooking together, sharing food is a great way to show your thanks. 

And when Thanksgiving is all said and done, appreciate the wonderful food by using it for leftovers.

Did someone say turkey tacos

Sure, you could throw some leftover turkey between two slices of bread and call it a day, but why stop there? Try something new — you can’t go wrong with tacos!

Giving thanks is an important part of Thanksgiving, and small acts of kindness can make this holiday season special.
