Good Samaritan (n): A charitable or helpful person.
Hey, Munchers! March 13th is National Good Samaritan Day! This is a day to celebrate and practice kindness and selflessness. To look around and think to yourself “how can I help?”. Feeling stuck, or maybe a little awkward about offering help to those who don’t usually ask? Check out the tips below for a little help (see what we did there?)!
- Think about how happy it would make you to receive help from someone in your life. Just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean it’s always easy. Check in with your friends, family, or coworkers and ask how you can help to pull a bit of their weight.
- It doesn’t always have to be face-to-face! So, you feel a little uncomfortable going right up to someone to ask how you can help them out. That’s okay! Next time you’re grabbing that morning coffee in the drive through, offer to pay for the person behind you. This is sure to make someone’s day, and you might just start a chain reaction of Good Samaritans!
- Think about how your talents could help someone! Offering help doesn’t need to feel like a chore. You’re great at baking? Whip up your favorite recipe and bring it to your neighbor! Have some extra Munch Rights? Share with a coworker or friend to brighten their day! You love the satisfaction of a clean house? Offer help to your spouse or family members and let them know you’d like to take over for a change.
A little kindness can go a long way, Munchers, so keep these tips in mind this month, and every month, to spread a little joy! Did these tips help you help someone? Let us know on Twitter or Instagram: @MunchRights.
