Taking part each September, Respect Day has been created to encourage people to focus more on ways in which they can be respectful to others.
For many the day involves being more attentive to loved ones, but it can really be used as a catalyst for treating any people with a more polite approach.
There are no rules surrounding ways in which you could celebrate this year, it’s really down to you. You could take your wife or husband out for a romantic meal, you could visit an elderly relative or you could endeavour to be more encouraging to others.
Of course, respect isn’t something that should only be given once a year and hopefully the day will inspire people to think more about how they treat others all year around.
Because of Respect Day’s broad nature, news coverage is likely to be limited so it is advisable to just mark the date in your diary and try your best.
