Today, September 12, is National Day of Encouragement. This day is dedicated to having a positive impact on those who are around us. Give your family, friends, coworkers…anyone you see…a word of encouragement. Positive words can change someone’s day and turn a frown upside down. Compliments take less than a minute to say, but can change someone’s outlook for hours…even days.

Mindfulness can be encouraging. Give it a try with these suggestions.
