Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all you have—a great job, a cool boss, a fun office to work in every day. (OK, fine, also your friends, family, and health.)

But it’s no surprise that being grateful is good for your health and happiness. Saying thank you for the people and things in your life can make you seem more approachable and caring, as well as improve your relationships, self-esteem, and mentality (and even your wallet!).

And it’s so easy to do: Even after Thanksgiving’s over and done, show some gratitude to those you work alongside every day with just a few simple words—this infographic will show you how.
