We've all heard the saying, "Treat others as you want to be treated." But when things get busy it can be tough to put yourself in someone else's shoes and think about nice things you could do for them. Sometimes all you have to do is say something nice to someone to really make their day—and that will make you feel great too! Today, think of a few ways how you can treat someone else how you would want to be treated. Help the new girl feel welcome. Tell your mom and dad how much you appreciate them. Give your dog an extra pat on the head. And don't forget to let us know how it went!
Don't forget that Dad's Day is coming up Sunday! We all love our dads, and we should tell them that all the time—not just on Father's Day. They do so much for us! But sometimes it's the funny moments you share together that makes your bond with your dad so special! This week, tell us a funny story that happened when you were hanging out with your dear ol' Dad! P.S. If you still need a gift idea, we know your dad will love this craft project!

You know that girl who is the star player on the soccer team? Or the one who has a knack for mixing and matching her clothes so she always looks funky and original? Or how about that girl who is amazing on the violin or who makes A's on every science test? They may have a special talent for what they do, but here's a little secret: It takes time to develop those talents, and most people aren't hugely successful at something the first time they try it! It takes time and practice to get good at…well, just about anything. So give up on giving up and keep doing the things you enjoy—even if you're not the best right away! And if you’re ever tempted to throw in the towel, remember that the only way you can truly fail is by failing to persist. What are you persistent about? Tell us by commenting below!

Q: Do I really need sunscreen on a cloudy day? A: We know it sounds crazy, but you really do need sunscreen on a cloudy day! Why? Up to 80% of the sun's rays are still reaching your skin, even when the sun is hidden by clouds. In fact, the sun's rays can get to you through clouds, smog, haze, even glass! And those rays can get through your clothes, too! Crazy, huh? That's why it's so important to lather up with sunscreen every single day. It might seem like a lot to handle now, but we promise it will pay off in the long run. Taking good care of your skin at a young age is one of the absolute best things you can do for your body! And it's easy, so why not? Just look for a daily facial moisturizer that also includes an SPF of 15 or higher, and you're all set!

Sometimes it might seem like everyone you know has better luck than you. It's easy to dwell on it when you think your friends have all the best fashions, more friends, get better grades than you, are better at sports than you, etc. But if you really think about it, you probably have lots of things your friends don't. The next time you're feeling jealous, try this simple exercise. 1. Grab a pencil and a piece of paper. 2. Set a timer for 5-10 minutes. 3. Spend that time writing a list of all the things you're thankful for! Write whatever comes to mind—your family, friends, food. Don't stop until the timer tells you it's time! When you're done read over your list and notice how it makes you feel. Are you happier than you were when you started? Does it feel better to be jealous or thankful?
