World Gratitude Day
World Gratitude Day is about being thankful for what we have in our lives, no matter how big or small the object, person or place may be. Hosted on 21 September, World Gratitude Day is about encouraging individuals and organisations to celebrate and show appreciation for all that they are grateful for. It ultimately aims to bring the world together in a day that is all about being thankful.
Have you ever got that warm, fuzzy feeling from telling someone that you are grateful for them or their service? You might get it when you thank a chef for the delicious meal you’ve just consumed, or a family member for saying something kind? Even saying thanks to an animal for showing you affection? That’s because being thankful has both emotional and physical benefits. It not only makes others feel good, but it also boosts our immune systems, lowers stress levels, and helps to improve our sleep.
It’s so critical that people feel appreciated for everything that they do, especially in times of crisis where people aren’t in the greatest headspaces.
Businesses thrive when customer service and reviews are excellent. Pets remain loyal when their owners appreciate them.
Children can feel appreciated and learn how to properly appreciate those around them. If there is anyone in your life that you are thankful for, such as a doctor, teacher, nurse or babysitter – today is a great day to tell them, ‘thanks!’
There are so many things to be thankful in our lives. You can be thankful for something as simple as you have woken up to experience this new day. You can be grateful to nature for providing clean air, glistening oceans and beautiful sunsets. You can be grateful for your job that can give a day purpose, feed your children and pay bills. Regardless of your circumstances, there are many things to be thankful for in your life. Nothing is too big or too small to show appreciation for, especially on World Gratitude Day.
There are many ways to celebrate the day, from moments of reflection, spending time with your animal and to paying a compliment to a stranger. Irrespective of how insignificant something may seem; it could make a huge difference in someone’s life.
If we reflect on the things that bring us joy, our well-being can be positively impacted and make us happier and healthier people. By celebrating World Gratitude Day, more and more people can understand the importance of acknowledging others contributions, and being grateful for their impact.
At Key Assets, something we are grateful for is you. You have remained loyal to us and to the children in your care. You have remained resilient when times have been tough. We are grateful for your continual support and the lessons you share by being yourselves. Thank you!
