“As long as you live, keep learning how to live!” Seneca
Be curious, ask questions, listen, volunteer, read a new book, take a new class, meet a new person, try something new!
What new things would you like to learn? I love this month’s happiness calendar. It’s about learning something new. A friend of mine attends the University Of Minnesota every weekday to study French, just for fun. She’s curious and learning something new! There is so much to learn and enjoy about the Earth and about difference cultures and ideas. So much to learn about science and geography, about history and literature, and on and on. I hope the below calendar makes you curious and helps you learn some new things. I hope it helps you set new goals, and that you have a “New Things November.”
Sundays: Super Sunday! A perfect day for kindness. How can you show people they are special to you, and that you are thinking of them?
Mondays: Make It Respectful Monday! Demand people show you respect, and show them respect back. Aim high, never gossip, lie, bully or make fun of people. Compliment, and active listen.
Tuesdays: Good Thoughts Tuesday! Give yourself a boost of positive energy. Enjoy the day and have fun. Turn off politics, Facebook and Twitter.
Wednesdays: Zero Waste Wednesday! Bring your lunch, use only reusable dishes, glasses and utensils. Cook your dinner, no take-out, and no wasted food! If possible leave your car at home. Have fun being good to the Earth!
Thursdays: Thankful Thursday! Think of all the people you are thankful for. How many times you can say, “Thank you.”
Fridays: Listen/Friendship Friday! Check in with an old friend or make a new friend. Listen and ask questions.
Saturdays: Smile Saturday! The more you smile the happier and better you feel. Good luck!
