Why Good Morning Messages Matter

We've already seen how messages of general support can benefit people. But it is exciting to see how more strategic implementations of kindness can impact folks throughout the day.

A 2018 study published in the Association for Positive Behavioral Support found that students who received positive greetings from teachers upon entering the classroom were more engaged and less disruptive throughout the day.

Even outside of these platonic settings, a quick "good morning, dear" can do a lot. A few words of affirmation won't just help you maintain that intimacy when apart from your partner—they can actually influence the levels of productivity your partner will experience throughout the day.

So go ahead and send out some cute morning messages to the ones you love. If not to help someone make the most of their day, then simply because it's a nice thing to do.
