I think telling people directly how their act helped me or improved my life. Being really open and honest is vital.


Acknowledge them as they happen. Thank people. Share experiences.


I demonstrate my gratitude with appreciative gestures and genuine words if thanks.


I make sure the people who've given me something to be grateful for know that I am grateful by thanking them directly. As far as things and experiences, I feel an inner gratitude is sufficient to appease any anxiety I might have towards not being grateful for being fortunate.

I express that gratitude directly whenever possible, in proportion to the benefit, if that makes sense.

By saying thank you or a hug or maybe a present or all three


Not enough I suppose

I try with actions after a "thanks". Eg a small box of desk flowers, or lunch outs, etc.

Most of my thanks are followed by, even at the least, a round of drinks on me next time we're at a pub - regardless of time elapsed.
