“Be Kind to Humankind Week” ends today, however we feel that it should be followed every day of every week. Here is a re-cap from all of our posts from the last week in being kind to your fellow humans.
You see someone who is wearing a pair of shoes you admire, a skirt or pants you like, a top that looks just right or an outfit that fits perfectly. Do you say something or keep it to yourself? If you answered the latter now is the time to change it. When you share your compliment to them those few short words can mean even more to that person. It is a small feat that can make a big impact and make someone’s day.
Where You Live Charities:
Do you love to give of your time and give to those in need? The Boca Guide has a list of charities in the community that are always looking for volunteers. A little of your time can mean a ton to someone else.
When you work out there are a few simple etiquette tips to be kind to your fellow gym goers. First and foremost, clean up after yourself. Put away your weights and clean off the equipment you used. Save your cell phone calls for outside of the gym, not while you are working out. Finally, perfume and cologne are great for wearing everywhere but not in the gym.
When it comes to tennis, it doesn’t take much to be kind to your fellow players, but sometimes everyone needs a few reminders. Understanding and using proper tennis etiquette on the court leads to fun every time. Always remember to be a positive competitor, leave the bad temper and negative attitude off the court. Good ball management is important to keep the speed of the game going. It is always good to be courteous in warm-ups and on close calls. This will keep your tennis calendar full and your games enjoyable.
Practicing good golf etiquette makes the game more enjoyable for everyone! Here are two very easy things that if done regularly can lead to better conditions on the golf course that will make your game and everyone else’s more enjoyable. Make sure to fill your divots and fix your ballmarks correctly. If you have questions or need help, stop by the Boca Grove Pro Shop and they will show you proper technique.
Proper application of dining etiquette is important to make sure you and your guests enjoy every dining experience. Start by making dining reservations whenever necessary to make sure your dining needs are met. It is kind to treat not only your guests properly, but also your server. Use your servers name when necessary and be polite when something goes wrong. Be prepared when ordering and keep your conversation within your table. When you make the effort to follow proper dining etiquette everyone will enjoy their meal.
“Be Kind to Humankind Week” may only last for a week, but if you keep these few tips in your arsenal then you will always be kind to your fellow man (or woman) all year long. Here is to being kind all the time!
