It may be socially acceptable to wear next to nothing to the beach or curse like a sailor in a public space, but let's not forget simple manners that make our every day interactions important.
Showing others kindness is simple, so let's bring back these important things that should have never gone out of style in the first place!
Instead of sending a text or sharing a picture on Facebook to commemorate someone's birthday, why not pick up the phone and give them a call. You can even give them an off-key rendition of Happy Birthday to help celebrate.
Doing Mental Math
With calculators on everyone's phone, it seems needless to try and work out a problem in our head. Challenge yourself, because this brain exercise can really help improve your math skills.
Knowing Your Neighbors
Remember the days of Block Parties? It seems like so long ago that we would just converge onto the street to get to know one another. We are so busy making online communities that we don't know the person that lives right next to us.
While we may be putting the focus on typing classes, learning cursive was a rite of passage in school. Getting the letters to align just right and practicing the capital "S" was a struggle we all went though.
Keeping a Diary
When was the last time you were alone with your thoughts? Away from Facebook notifications and YouTube videos, all you need is a diary and a pen. We used to journal-keep all the time and they proved to be amazing and sometimes hilarious years later.
Saying "Please" and "Thank You"
They're not just magic words they're nice to say and even nicer to hear. Let's add these ones back to our vocabulary.
Fun fedoras, floppy brims, berets and fascinators added so much flare to your outfit and really saved you on those bad hair days.
Holding the Door for Someone
Instead of letting the door slam the person behind you in the face, grab it and open it for them. The world would be a better place and we remembered our manners.
