Character (Every) Day : 10 Daily Practices to Strengthen Character in the 21st Century

 

  1. Every night before bed, think of three moments or people you are grateful for. #Gratitude

  2. Identify your top three strengths and find ways to bring them into your life in new ways. #Character

  3. Identify one strength you want to develop and make a list of practices you can do each day to strengthen it. #Perspective #Perseverance

  4. Think of people you see everyday but don't know personally -- find out their name and something about them. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes. #Empathy #Curiosity    

  5. Next time you're in a group setting, if you're a shy person, try to raise your hand or speak first; if you're a vocal person, let others speak first. #Humility #Courage

  6. Recognize character strengths in others and compliment them regularly. #gratitude #Perspective #Empathy

  7. If you have an email that is stressing you out, sleep on it before you send #Self-control

  8. Recognize teachable moments in real life and on screen and identify what strengths they exercise. #SocialIntelligence

  9. Ask people for permission to post (PTP) before sharing their photo online. #Kindness #Self-Control

  10. Before communicating (online or off), take a moment and think, is what I'm saying a reflection of who I am and who I want to be in the world?

 

The fourth annual Character Day scheduled for Wednesday, September 13, 2017, presented by Emmy-nominated Film Studio Let It Ripple, will explore meaning, purpose and the science of character through a LiveCast Q&A with prominent global thought leaders like Moby, Krista Tippet, Angela Duckworth and more. #CultivatingCharacter
