    Using these two little words more often will make you more popular

    We all just want to be liked. Whether it’s on Instagram or in actual real life. 

    And, according to a new study, it’s not always the grand gestures that get you noticed. In fact, just going out of your way to say ‘thank you’ now and again can massively influence someone’s opinion of you.

    A recent study by the University of New South Wales found that going out of your way to say ‘thank you’ makes people see you as a warmer person and want to be your friend.

    For the small study, students were paired with older mentors on a project. Afterwards, half the students sent ‘thank you’ notes to their mentors.

    Those who wrote to express their gratitude were seen as having greater ‘interpersonal warmth’ than those who didn’t. Plus, their mentors were more likely to exchange contact information with them.

    Not only will giving thanks make people think better of you, but it can also make you happier.

    Previous research published in the Psychological Science journal found that not only is expression of gratitude positively linked with relationship satisfaction, but that ‘people who express gratitude also benefit from doing so’.
