But occasionally take a walk to just feed your neighbourhood strays or water the plants or buy some compost once in a while. Such small acts of kindness will help the neighbourhood to become a more thriving place not just for humans but also for other living beings such as animals and plants.

In case, you are a homepreneur then trust us, there’s no better place than this for you to do a little marketing.
Be mindful of your neighbour’s routines
Whether it’s your house parties or just you cleaning your house make sure that you don’t disturb your neighbours in any way. Even if you are going to have an event that might continue until the wee hours or is going to cause some commotion then informing your neighbours in advance is always a good idea. If you start becoming mindful of your neighbour’s routine then they will too become mindful of your schedules. Get to know your neighbour’s life routines over a cup of coffee to bond with them.

Observe how some good neighbours try to make your neighbourhood a better place to live for you and your other neighbours. Maybe you will not only learn a thing or two but will also become good friends with them.

Your neighbourhood pals need not be all the people staying next door. They can be your neighbourhood shopkeeper, your guard, your liftman and maybe your gardener too. Everyone who has played an important part in making your life in the neighbourhood much easier are your friends. These people have been by your side without even you realizing it.
