Say thank you According to Robert Emmons, a leading gratitude expert and the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Positive Psychology, saying thank you to people not only makes them feel appreciated, it also makes you feel happier.

Words of gratitude Clinical psychologist Dr Christina Hibbert advises placing gratitude words and phrases around your house and office to repeat in times of frustration, sadness or anger, such as: “Our struggles make us stronger, and for that I am grateful.”

#thankfulfor While experts, including Emmons, are still encouraging us to keep gratitude journals, if you’re more likely to be holding your phone than a pen, join the global gratitude community by using #thankfulfor on your social media posts.
