National Do Something Nice Day

Every year on October 5, people around the country observe National Do Something Nice Day.


This observance is very similar to National Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is observed on February 17.

It would be great if everyone lived their lives doing kind things on a daily basis and not worrying about it. We're all caught up in our fast-paced lives. However, kindness should never be sacrificed in order to advance in the world. Kindness does not require grand gestures. However, when appropriate, those are also acceptable.

We have the ability to change a person's day by being courteous in a matter of seconds. The individual's day in question may even be our own. Here are a few things that take no time at all and require virtually no effort:: These are all things that take little time at all and require almost no effort.

Do something nice. The something can be anything from buying a cup of coffee for someone in line at the coffee shop to complimenting the gruesome clerk to the tired clerk. Perhaps the day calls for sending flowers with a card that says "just because," or asking the neighbors over for a barbecue in the backyard, or mowing the lawn for someone. To post on social media, use the hashtag #DoSomethingNiceDay.
