Are you a person who compliments the people in your life? A true and sincere compliment and not just a comment on clothing or a hairstyle.
Today could be a day that you spread some compliments around.
The word compliment means:
- A formal act of civility, courtesy, or respect.
- An expression of praise, admiration, or congratulation.
Praise, admiration, courtesy and respect. These four words can create so many positive feelings for both the person giving the compliment as well as the one receiving it.
In elementary schools, there is a lot of talk about kindness and respect. How can we be kind to one another? Giving a compliment is very kind and in a child it can give them great confidence.
Compliments are powerful for adults too. First, you want to be sincere. Second, you should try and give one for something a person has done or a quality you like about them. That makes the compliment more sincere.
Once a person hears a compliment it shows that person that you’ve been paying attention to them. It makes them feel valued and respected. The bonus is that you’ve done your part to spread happiness.
Private Home Health Care appreciates how important and helpful it is to give compliments. We look forward to noticing times when we can give a compliment.
