We all know the saying, “If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.” This week, live by that saying and speak up to a senior! Remember, kindness is infectious and makes an impact we often don't see. If you want a bit more of a challenge, give a compliment to one senior you know and one you don’t to spread a little extra love.
Here are few kind words you can tell them:
- Why they mean the most to you
- Why they make you smile
- What you love about them
- Or, all of the above!
Saying something nice to a senior has been proven to boost their self-esteem and provide other health benefits. According to the Mayo Clinic, kindness often reduces stress, increases empathy and makes a person feel less lonely.
