Today is Do Something Nice Day. Go ahead, do something nice, anything nice. Doing something nice for someone almost always brings a pleasant response, and usually results in a smile. Practicing kindness makes us happier and gives us healthier hearts. And, best of all, doing something nice can be contagious.

In keeping with the spirit of this day, set a goal to do something nice for someone or for several people. To quote the Dalai Lama, “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
