5 Ways You Can Be Nice

We should strive to be kind to others every day.  Kindness is an awesome virtue!  Today is Do Something Nice Day and we challenge you to do something nice!  Need some help? That's what we're here for.  Here are our top 5 ways you can do something nice today!

Hold the door open

Holding the door is a small act, but one that can make other people smile!  Next time you're at school, at home or out with your parents, try holding the door open for someone.  I bet they'll be super thankful.

Help clean up at home, at school, or in your neighborhood

We need to do our part and show respect for all the places we visit.  Let's help mom clean the dinner table, make sure our classrooms are tidy, or pick up litter in our neighborhood.  You can be an everyday super hero!

Thank your teacher for teaching you cool things every day

Every day, your teacher chooses to come to school and teach you all the cool things you learn. Tell your teachers how much you appreciate them!  It will definitely make them smile.

Give compliments like "You are a great soccer player!" and "Your art is beautiful!"

Use kind words and language that is inclusive to everyone -- the world needs more of this!  Kind words are the best, and you'll be the best for simply being kind. Isn't that awesome?!

Give a hug

Extra hugs are awesome!  When we give or receive a hug, our brains release oxytocin, a hormone that makes us healthier and happier.  Neat, huh?

Don't stop here!  Let's use our loud little voices for good and be nice every day!
