Do a Grouch a Favor Day

Do a Grouch a Favor Day is a day for doing favors for the grouches in our lives. Maybe they are our neighbor, a coworker, part of our family, or a stranger we meet at the store or on the street. Some people are always grouchy, and some people only become grouchy after a lot of stress is placed on them. We probably have all been grouchy at some point. No matter where a grouch is found today, the day is for doing them a favor, with the hope that it will cheer them up, and help their grouchiness subside. It may not help everyone—some people are perennial grouches—but it's worth a try!

How to Observe Do a Grouch a Favor Day

Celebrate the day by doing a favor for a grouchy friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or even a stranger. Buy a friend lunch; take a family member to one of their favorite places; offer to stay late to help a coworker with a project; shovel your neighbor's driveway; put a cart away for a stranger at the grocery store. There are many ways you can celebrate the day. Every favor starts with a good intention and a smile, and hopefully ends with brightening the day of a grouch.
