Feeling and expressing gratitude and doing acts of kindness are science-based ways to help protect and promote our physical and psychological health (e.g., higher mental well-being and self-esteem and fewer depressive symptoms) and strengthen our relationships at work and at home.
As we grow habits of gratitude and kindness, they become a bigger part of who we are, and we are more likely to notice more opportunities for gratitude and kindness—creating an upward spiral for our health and happiness.
There are countless ways to express gratitude and do kind acts at work and home as part of our daily routines—even for the busiest among us.
One especially easy way to do so is to send a note of thanks, support, or affection to friends, family, colleagues, and clients using IWIL’s e-message form. Just fill out the form below, and we’ll send a customized email with your message to the recipient. It’s quick and easy—but can be so impactful!
It’s free to use as much as you like, and we encourage daily use during Well-Being Week in Law!
