If you believe what you give comes back double to you, Say Something Nice Day is for you. On June 1, give those around you words of support, love, appreciation and sincere compliments.
This kind, touching holiday appeared in the summer of 2006. It has attracted the approval of religious communities, but the benefits for atheists and secular people should not be underestimated. Mitchell Carnell’s journalistic articles on the interconnectedness of psychological and physical health and successful communication skills had a huge influence on the creation of this holiday.
Negative emotions take away energy, positive feelings add vitality.
- Flattery is recognized at an intuitive level. Compliments work better when you are sincere.
- Appropriate, real complements require intellectual work.
- Good things should be praised, instead of waiting for the right moment.
If a person believes they are surrounded by negativity, they themselves become hostile toward the world. It is necessary to change perspective!
How to take part
It is difficult for some to say pleasant things without embarrassment. It takes practice.
Start changing this morning! Greet the dawn with a smile; tell your family how charming they look in their pajamas and with disheveled hair. Get smiles.
Pay compliments to your postal worker, milkman, bartender, server, cashier at your favorite supermarket. Wish them a good day. There is nothing shameful about it, just politeness, a concept lacking in today’s embittered world.
Give people a good mood, catch the rays of goodness sent in response. Make the world kinder, cleaner, and happier.
