Ways to Give Thanks

November is about recognizing the positive attributes happening in your life right now. Showing gratitude about your daily life is good for your well-being. Are you looking for ways to give thanks? Consider reaching out to someone in need or volunteering. If you need inspiration, check out the following list.

  • Donate groceries to a food bank
  • Volunteer at an animal shelter or rescue.
  • Buy a coffee or hot chocolate for your co-workers
  • Give flowers to your child’s teacher
  • Cook a meal for a family going through a rough time
  • Leave a tip above the standard rate
  • Donate your gently used clothes to a women’s shelter (personal hygiene products are also a welcomed donation)
  • Offer to drive an elderly person around to run errands or go to a doctor’s appointment
  • Leave a positive review on social media about your recent restaurant visit. Give your waiter or waitress some positive feedback.
  • Engage in a kind gesture. Hold the door open for someone. Or allow a person with a single item check out ahead of you and your cartload of groceries.
  • At the drive-thru, pay for the next person’s order
  • Write a thank you card to your favorite teacher.
  • Volunteer at a nursing home.
  • Take a bag of groceries to a relative or person in need.

Finding small ways to give thanks may have a significant impact on another’s person day.
