My son works part-time as a waiter in a nice restaurant near the university. He loves his co-workers, boss, and the kitchen staff. Serving people is demanding work and he's had some difficult customers. He's learned that some people can be rude and mean-spirited even when the service is good. But thanks to a positive work environment, he enjoys his work.
So what is the best most original New Years resolution?
Treat every person who serves you, as a waiter, checker, gas attendant, clerk, with kindness and as if you know them personally. After all, they are someone's son, daughter, mother, father, sister-- you get the idea. Who knows, it might be my son or daughter you are treating kindly!
And what's in it for you? A great new habit to kick off the New Year! And according to science, being nice is good for your health. Being kind is less stressful and studies show it boosts your immune health.
Here's a great example of a small act of kindness making a great difference!
Make 2017 your best year ever!
