National Day of Encouragment

National Day of Encouragment

September 12th recognizes the National Day of Encouragement each year. This day is dedicated to uplifting people around us and making a positive impact. Encouragement is free. It never costs us anything to say a few words to inspire a student, coworker, or friend. Even a reassuring word to a stranger may make a difference in their lives. Encouragement lifts someone when they are down. It also motivates a person who has an eye on a goal. When we have failed, the right words remind us to keep trying. The right message may create a spark that changes a loved one’s perspective.

Sometimes, the act of noticing a job well done improves someone’s day. Developing a habit of recognizing emerging talents motivates us to speak up and offer a kind word or helpful tip. It is a practice worth having to improve relationships at work, at home, and in the world around us. There really is no simpler way.

HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL DAY OF ENCOURAGEMENT

Acts of encouragement require so little – a bit of time, the right words, and noticing accomplishments, even small ones. Encourage someone you know in many ways:

  • Let them know you noticed their progress.
  • Provide reassurance and inspiration to the people around you.
  • Give a high five to someone for a job well done.
  • Take notice when a friend is getting close to a hard-earned goal, encouraging them to keep going.
  • Send a card or give a call or text to a family member who may be struggling.
  • Show your support by attending a friend’s performance, sporting event or exhibit.
