Observe National Courtesy Month Every Month
Posted on 09/29/2014
Although September is National Courtesy Month, It’s never too late to teach people to be more courteous through your own actions. A little courtesy goes a long way. Being courteous is defined as displaying good manners and polite behavior. The small things we can do daily don’t require much effort and show the appreciation and respect we have for the people around us. Bring manners back through simple actions every day. Here are a few ideas on how you can pay it forward:
Remember to share—Remember the preschool mantra: “sharing is caring”? That still holds true as an adult in this fast-paced world. It’s the little things we do every day that count. Share freshly-brewed coffee with a coworker, share a meal with a friend, share dessert at home with family. Sharing will remind yourself to care about others and spread goodwill.
Always smile—A smile is contagious, and you never know when someone’s day needs to be brightened. When passing someone in the hallway, even if it’s a stranger, smile. Smile even if you’re having a bad day. Remind yourself and everyone else to smile.
Roadway rituals—We’re quick to blame the other driver on the road. You can’t change everyone’s attitude towards driving, but you can change your own. Drivers cut off cars in traffic, fail to use the turn signal and run stop signs. This common rudeness can often lead to road rage and accidents. It is imperative to start with your own attitude and be more peaceful when driving. You will be more aware of your own driving and this common courtesy will help make the roads safer.
