MAKE UP YOUR MIND DAY - December 31

MAKE UP YOUR MIND DAY – December 31

MAKE UP YOUR MIND DAY

Each year, Make Up Your Mind Day on December 31st encourages us to quit wavering, to take a side, and follow through with a decision and stick to it.  

As New Year’s resolutions go, this may be the day to decide which ones to declare. The day may be used to determine other decisions as well. Career changes, family decisions, and large purchases often keep us from moving forward. We waver between multiple choices or sometimes a simple yes or no. While some life-altering decisions are made on a whim, most people deliberate and weigh the pros and cons before making these types of decisions. 

HOW TO OBSERVE #MakeUpYourMindDay

If a decision has you hesitating, make a decision. This day is the incentive to make a choice. Draw up a list of pros and cons to help you decide. Too many choices? Pare them down by ranking them. Use #MakeUpYourMindDay to post on social media.

MAKE UP YOUR MIND DAY HISTORY

National Day Calendar continues researching the origins of this day. As we do, we’re trying to make up our minds about whether to celebrate early in the day or wait. We’ll make our decision before midnight.
