Did you know that expressing gratitude isn’t just about being polite, it’s like a mini workout for your brain. Saying “thanks” triggers a rush of feel-good endorphins not just for the receiver but for the giver as well. It’s a win-win situation!

In a recent survey conducted by Nectar, 800 full-time employees in the United States were polled.
