4. Respect others
This includes your elders, minors, co-workers, family members, etc. This can be hard when you have to be around someone who has differing opinions than you, or who acts in a way you don’t approve of. But you can still be civil. If you look for attributes you respect in people, you will find them.
5. Be involved
If you support going green, then go green in your life. If you support your local government, then attend community meetings. Be a part of the things that matter to you.
6. Say, “Please,” and, “Thank you,” often
These are small words, but they go a long way. Expressing your gratitude to people, even for the smallest acts of kindness, shows that you see the good in people; it shows that you pay attention to the things people around you are doing and saying.
