Have you said Thank You today?

Gracias. Danke. Grazie. Asante. Sukria. Thank you… This simple phrase in English and its variant in all languages of the world has been recognized with a special day unofficially recognized worldwide to build the culture of expressing appreciation to others.
Every very year people all over the world celebrate International Thank You Day that falls on January 11. This celebration is the ideal opportunity to show your gratitude to people who make your days what they are.
 
 
The origin of International Thank You Day is unclear. No one knows who established it and when. There is an opinion that greeting cards companies promoted this holiday to increase their sales. But this doesn’t make the concept of International Thank You Day less appealing.
Celebrate this day by showing your appreciation to people who make your life better and more beautiful. One single word can make people who surround you happier, isn’t it great?
Such little words can make a difference and it turns out can have health benefits too! Some research has found that thanking others more often may improve well-being, physical health, strengthen social relationships, produce positive emotional states and help you cope with stress. When you’re healthier and less stressed your heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood to the body, which is great for long-term heart health!
