Opinion: We should dedicate one day per week towards improving the world.


In my opinion we should take one day per week and use it to improve the world and help people.

Ideally, I would like for the day to be either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Realistically, it would probably have to start on Saturday or Sunday. When it picks up enough steam, we can move it to be an official day of the week.

We have seven days per week. If everyone spent one day per week helping others and improving the planet, I believe it would lift everyone’s spirits.

What are we really doing that is so important? The majority of us, including me, are spending time watching entertainment videos and sports. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. All I’m pointing out is there is time to help others.

Helping others and elevating the planet doesn’t have to mean spending money. There are plenty of things we can do that doesn’t include paying. We can get involved with politics, local nonprofits, and spread awareness about beneficial programs. We could spend the one day per week trying to figure out what is the most important way to spend the day.

Ideally, companies would allow their staff to spend one day per week during the work week helping people and the planet. It would be nice if everyone connected on the same day. If we spent every Tuesday for the last thirty years helping each other, where would we be right now?

How many people in the United States or globally can use a little lift to get back on track? What can we do to help them? What is currently being done to help them? How can we create new ideas and improve the current programs?

The current schedule is work five days and relax for two.

I would like to see work for four days, dedicate one day to the planet and relax for two days.

I would be happy with work for five days, relax for one, and dedicate one day to helping others.

Could you visualize where that might lead?

In my opinion, we are all connected. If one person is down, it brings the whole chain down. We are all on the same team.
