Health Tip of the Day

Each day, take some time to thank someone for something they did for you - something recent, or something in the past. Choose something tangible rather than offering a general sentiment.

Write an email, or send a note in a card. Perhaps give them a call, but the written word seems to have a more lasting impact, because the person can look at it again and again. Just dash off a simple: "Thank you for 'this.' I was thinking back and remembered how much I appreciated what you did." Do not pretend appreciation or hang anything on it. Speak from your heart.

The effect of this definitely rides a two way street: You get a chance to count your blessings. Many times, we let things slide and take the simple things for granted. The other person feels loved and appreciated. People are uplifted by positive people who appreciate them.

Make the world a better place for yourself and those around you.
