Shovel a Sidewalk

If you live in a area with snow offer to shovel a sidewalk for someone that is not able to do it for themselves.  It is good exercise for you and could be a lifesaver for someone else.

Dress for the Season

Wear a Christmas vest, sweater or pin. Silly is okay. It's the Christmas season! Seeing other people in Christmas attire reminds folks the season is here and might make them smile a little bit more during the day.

Be Afraid...

Take a dog for a walk

Many dog shelters need volunteers to give their dogs a daily walk.  Some elderly or handicapped folks are not able to walk their dogs.  Check with your local ASPCA or Humane Society to see where your services could be put to use.  The Dog owners will be grateful, the dogs will be happy and as an added benefit it is a healthy activity for you!

Let someone in.

When traffic is awful and you are in a hurry, slow down and let one person pull in front of you. It may slow your trip by 30 seconds, but you’ll feel better for helping to brighten someone else’s day.

Listen to a story (even if you have heard it before).

Sometimes you need to grit your teeth and listen to a story you’ve heard before (even MANY times). Act as though it is the first time you have heard it. It is a kindness the storyteller will never know about, but usually one you won’t regret.

Sometimes people aren’t looking for advise or sympathy. They just need an ear to hear what they have to say.
