do nice things.

Four years ago, Debbie Tenzer began doing one nice thing every week to battle her Monday blues. According to Tenzer, she found being nice habit-forming, and today, she is the self-confessed "nice-o-holic" leading an international Do One Nice Thing movement via her website and her new book.

The concept is beautifully simple: Do one nice thing for someone else once a week. It can be as simple as telling a friend a joke, bringing someone coffee, collecting empty paper towel and toilet paper rolls for pets. The D1NT website is full of great ideas.

In honor of Memorial Day, D1NT is helping deliver thank-you notes to military families. You write the letter letting a military family know how greatly you appreciate their strength and sacrifice, send it in to D1NT, and they — in conjunction with Military One Source — pass it along to a military family.

So, anyone interested in joining me for a new Austin-based movement — Do Two Nice Things Tuesdays? Everything's bigger in Texas, right?  ;)
