It's one of my favorite unofficial holidays today, "Do Something Nice Day", an observance day where people do just that, every year on October 5th. The "something" can be "anything", like leaving a kind note for a friend or college, bringing in or taking out your neighbors trash, holding the door open, giving fresh flowers to someone just because, or buying a cup of coffee for the security guard at work.

The possibilities are endless and many of these things we do everyday anyhow, but it turns out consciously thinking about ways to be kind and implementing them is really rewarding. Not only does it makes those we are serving feel good, but it releases endorphins that make the doers feel happier.
Today serves as reminder to all, that the free things in life can be easily given and hold the greatest impact on making the world a better place. So get out there and see how many "nice" things you can do today, and take note of the joy that comes from performing simple acts of kindness.
Use #DoSomethingNiceDay to post on social media and share the ways you did something nice.
