To help encourage more of these interactions, we've put together a list of good morning messages for friends. Use these blurbs the next time you want to let your pals know just how much they mean, but can't quite find the words.

Why Saying "Good Morning" Matters

If saying "good morning" in the workplace is enough to improve morale, can you imagine the impact it might have on someone you actually love? While these small gestures may not seem like a huge deal, they can go a long way in making someone feel seen and appreciated. Keep in mind that not everyone has a huge network of people to offer this kind of support. A message from you might be the only one of its kind someone receives all day. And peppering in a few kind words might make things all the more meaningful.

Besides, doing so might be the first time you've actually started speaking their language—love language, that is. Remember, these experiences aren't just limited to romantic partners. The way we give and receive affection applies to all relationships in our lives. If words of affirmation just happen to be how your friend internalizes tenderness and attachment, then you have all the more reason to fire off a friendly message.
