NATIONAL OLD STUFF DAY
Always observed on March 2nd, National Old Stuff Day is a day to give notice to all that old stuff and try something new. Well, maybe not ALL the old stuff, but some of it. It’s a day to break out of the old routines and try something new.
We have all heard the saying, “same old, same old.” Well, this is the day to do things differently. There is no limit to how you can change up your day. Take a moment to recognize the things that you do each day. Is there a better way, more efficient way? Is there a better route to work? Is there a less stressful approach to a task?
Maybe it’s just a way to brighten your day or someone else’s day. Whatever it is, strive to make the day new, not the same old day it was yesterday.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Approach the day with a new attitude. Consider alternatives to each of the choices you make each day. Is there a better or equal alternative? Try making a new choice when available. Use #NationalOldStuffDay to post on social media.
