History of National Compliment Day

National Compliment Day has been celebrated since 1998. It is created by Kathy Chamberlin, of Hopkinton, NH. and Debby Hoffman, of Concord, NH. They created this day to tell the people in our lives how much we appreciate them. Praise can be anything like encouraging, complimenting, congratulating someone for their good work. The day is the perfect time to share these feelings with those who deserve them to the fullest. Everyone has good attributes, and so you can say some really positive things about the people around you. You are forbidden to take the people around you for granted and so take the time to appreciate and compliment them.

Research shows that the brain is energized and works better when the person is praised. This is a day of celebration not only for those who receive the compliment, but also for those who add it. It means that the person needs time to observe and notice the things done by others. Expressing praise builds trust and will create an atmosphere of mutual admiration. You are encouraged to consciously try to praise others to spread joy. It's like a smile that spreads from person to person. So if you give compliments, you will definitely get one of those things in return. It's as easy to make people happy as with kind words.

Showing respect and sincerity should be encouraged as in the hustle and bustle of the social world. Often, we don't seem to notice what others do for us. Realize this for yourself one day because giving praise is not a difficult task. Give sincere compliments and notes to those who truly deserve it on this special Day of Celebration. If you admire, then honestly compliment everyone and everything you find around you. No money or things can bring more joy than the praise a person gives or receives. Appreciate the benefits of original and original people who stand out among the rest.
