Send a Note of Appreciation

Take a few minutes out of your day today to write a note of appreciation to someone you haven't thanked in a while.В·You can send it to your spouse, significant other, sibling, parent, child, best friend, coach, teacher—anyone who you feel needs a bit of a pick me up.В· You can even make a list for your loved one highlighting all of the different reasons you appreciate him or her. Once you’ve brainstormed your thoughts, write them neatly in card you’ve chosen, or just send an email.В· No matter how you decide to share a note of appreciation, be sure to do it today!


Too often in life we take the people we love for granted. This is a wonderful reminder of how lucky we are to have these people in our lives!

Step It Up:

Do this exercise for everyone whom you appreciate in your life. Maybe you sent a note today to your spouse or significant other. Next month, why not write a similar note to your parents? Or your best friend, college roommate, or coach? Make a commitment to write one note of appreciation each month for someone special in your life. Perhaps you could present them with the note over a nice dinner or long walk. Spending quality time with your loved ones is a great way to show appreciation as well.

Keep It Simple:

Go out of your way to tell your loved one how much you appreciate them (and why!) each day this week.
