1. If you’re poor, homeless, just hungry, or know someone who is, go to a Sikh temple for “langar.” a free meal is served to all the visitors, without distinction of religion, caste, gender, economic status or ethnicity.
4. People want someone to tell them what to do in emergency situations. For example while performing CPR on someone don’t say “Someone call an ambulance” instead talk to one person and ask him/her to call an ambulance directly.
5. If someone that you’ve met before asks about your loved ones in general terms (i.e. how’s your son?), try and include their name in your response. Chances are that they’ve forgotten the name of your loved one but are too embarrassed to ask what it is again
6. When walking behind someone in a dark alley or other vulnerable situation, scuff your feet periodically. The noise will help them determine where you’re located and how far away you are. It can reduce their anxiety about being snuck up on and the perception that you are a threat.
