Day 10: Encourage someone

Source

Could someone in your family use some encouragement?

It could be anyone – your spouse, child, sister, aunt, cousin, nephew, parent, grandparent, etc.

Take some time today to call the person (not email or text) and see how he or she is doing beyond the cursory, “Fine, and how are you?”

A few minutes spent encouraging someone who is going through a hard time is time well spent.

Even if you’re not that great at giving out some encouragement, simply offering a listening ear is a thoughtful act that will be much appreciated…

…and will probably make you feel better, too.
