What Makes a Good Neighbor

Sep 29, 2016|

Sometimes good, friendly neighbors are hard to come by. When you do have a kind, good neighbor nearby, it really goes a long way. So what actually makes a good neighbor and how can we be the best neighbor? Here are some ideas of ways we can be great to those we live around.

Be considerate. Notice the time of day and what others might be going through. Noise levels can be a huge issue with neighbors, especially late at night. Does the family next to you have small children that go to bed early? Then don't blast your music super loud with the windows open at 11:00 p.m. Is there an elderly person who has a hard time getting around? Bring their mail up to their house on days with poor weather.

Notice who and what is around you. Is there a neighbor who has a hard time getting their trash out? Or maybe a young mother who needs twenty minutes to run to the store. Or what about that old widower who doesn't cook for himself and needs a nice, warm, home-cooked meal every once in a while. It doesn't take too much time to be aware of those we live around and their simple needs. Take some time to help even just one neighbor out each week.

Yard work. There is always someone in the neighborhood who could use a little extra help in their yard. While you're out raking your own leaves, why not rake the neighbor's too? Or even just pull a few weeds for that busy family who doesn't have time to get around to it for another week.

Simply say hello. A genuine smile and a "Hello! How are you today?" can go a long way. When you see your neighbors outside, just say hello. It's such an easy thing to do and it shows that you are kind, friendly, and approachable.

Let's all try to be the best neighbor. It will make life much more pleasant for everyone!
