  • Help kick off our #mymTips and tell us why you are proud to be #Canadian

  • Ask your friends/family to tell you 1 thing they admire about you. You might be surprised/pleased at what they have to say! #mymTips

  • Make a list of 5 things you've done that have helped others, in big or small ways. You've touched lives, & that makes you #awesome. #mymTips

  • Do a good deed today. It could be buying a coffee for someone, holding a door, helping a neighbour. Good deeds grow pride. #mymTips

  • Accepting that you have flaws is a part of being proud of yourself and who you are. Embrace all parts of yourself. #mymTips

  • Do a little research about your cultural heritage. Pick 3 cool facts/positive aspects about it and share them on social media. #mymTips

  • Think about the simple tasks you do every day, pick one and give it extra effort. Every task is a chance to be your best. #mymTips

  • Think of a time when you've felt bitter or jealous toward someone. Ask yourself "does their joy/success take away from mine?" #mymTips

  • Don't wait until you reach a goal to be proud, be proud of every step you take toward reaching that goal! #mymTips

  • Try to read a whole book by the end of the month. It can be a great feeling of pride & accomplishment in this tech driven age. #mymTips

  • Don't let pride get in the way of asking for help. Everyone needs help from time to time & it's a strength to admit that. #mymTips

  • Not forgiving yourself can interfere with your ability to feel proud, so it's time to forgive your mistakes. #mymTips

  • Telling others about something you did that made you feel proud is a healthy way to show your pride every now and then. #mymTips

  • Try something new today like a hobby, craft, recipe, etc. Even if it isn't a success, you can be proud that you went out on a limb. #mymTips
