So, how often do you say ‘Thank you?’ No idea, isn’t it? Many of us don’t even use this word frequently.

But go home today and say thank you to your mom and dad and see the joy, pleasure and glow on their face.
There are many reasons to say thank you. One should use this word frequently to become friendly and avoid rudeness in his behavior.

Now, since there is a right way of doing everything, so is the case for saying ‘Thank you.’ I am here to give you some tips on how to say sorry and thank you.
1) Always bear a smile while saying Thank you – It helps a lot while conveying a message. It shows that you are happy with their service; you respect that person for the service they provided you. It shows that you appreciate them.
2)Say softly instead of using a loud pitch – Voice plays a very important role in communication. Your mood and mindset are determined by the pitch you use. Using a loud pitch can hurt the receiver and will lead to misunderstandings.
3)Keep Body language in mind- A little bend in your body is regarded as showing gratitude, and on top of that, saying thank you will enhance the positive message. Standing straight while saying Thank you will often lead the receiver to think that you are arrogant and do not appreciate their service. Making eye contact with the receiver will prompt your message, and it is also a sign of surety that you are sincere while saying thank you. So, one should take care of their body language while saying thank you.
4)Don’t mutter. Be audible! – Don’t mutter while saying thank you, be audible so that you can reach the receiver. If your thank you don’t reach the receiver, it is of no use. Muttering a Thank you is often received as arrogance and the consequent confusion, which will invoke negativity in the receiver.
