From the Post: The Power of the Thank You Card: All the Reasons to Use Them
In a world that often seems detached and impersonal, the power of the thank you card remains undeniable. Its ability to convey genuine appreciation, strengthen relationships, foster positivity, and preserve tradition is unmatched. By taking the time to express gratitude in a physical and heartfelt manner, we not only make someone else’s day but also enrich our own lives. Let’s not underestimate the effect of this timeless gesture, and let us embrace the power of the thank you card to build connections, spread joy, and make a difference in someone’s day.
Buy a box of thank you cards and have them at your desk. Watch for a crucial moment where the effect of a well-written thank you will enhance someone’s day. If you want to get the most out of doing this, don’t sign the card.
If the thank you is a heartfelt personal reaction, sign the card and tell them how much their work or actions meant to you.
Whether you know it or not, random acts of kindness release dopamine, a chemical in the brain that can give us a feeling of euphoria otherwise known as the helper’s high. It gives us a chance to smile at ourselves knowing we did something nice for someone else without expecting anything in return.
