All of us, being humans, crave attention and appreciation.
If someone does a good deed, showing a little appreciation goes a long way.
Some people work day and night, with little or no appreciation shown to them. This makes them depressed and they slowly lose interest in the work they do.
Showing a little appreciation did not hurt anyone. However, this can exist only in no jealousy zones.
Have you ever observed that those who’s work is truly appreciated, end up working more productively and it helps maintain a healthy work-life balance.
It is much wiser to say a few kinds words of appreciation to someone when they are living, rather than writing an essay for them when they’re no more.
Sometimes people do not show appreciation towards other’s due to the following traits :
Ways we can appreciate others around us :
1) Make something for them.
2) Write a thank you note.
3) Compliment / Praise them
4) Show signs of affection
5) Do something thoughtful
6) Get a small gift
Whether you are having a great day or a horrible one, an attitude of gratitude can lift your spirits and change your mood, and sometimes the mood of those around you too.
Alan Cohen said, “Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts”.
So, starting today, let’s make a conscious effort to appreciate those around us and also appreciate all the things we have in our lives.
Let us be more grateful in order to be more happy.
Thank you for reading! ❤
