Today try to compliment at least five people. Not only are compliments appreciated by the receiver, but they also lift the spirit of the giver.

Compliments provide a quick and easy way to connect positively with those you come in contact with. Giving compliments forges bonds, dispels loneliness and just plain feels good.

This holiday was originated by Debby Hoffman and Kathy Chamberlin.

A serotonin boost is a tried-and-true way to put someone in a good mood and wear a contagious smile all day long. And, you definitely don’t need anything fancy or a chocolate bar to make someone feel great because you can do this by stringing a few positive words together that highlight traits, abilities, achievements, emotional capacity, and everything else in between. It’s that simple and easy. Plus, the more kind words you say to others, the better it makes you feel. So why not spread positivity and happiness one compliment at a time? Here are some compliments you can pay your friends and colleagues today.
