One of my favorite ways is to celebrate special days 6 months later for an infusion of freshness into day-to-day life.
|Birthday||Do something small but special for someone on their half birthday to show you are thankful that they were born.|
|Independence Day||Instead of celebrating the USA's independence, celebrate YOUR independence ~ On January 4, fresh with the excitement of the real New Year's celebration still coursing through your system, mark today as the start of your independence, whether it be chemical independence, financial independence, job independence, relationship independence, etc.|
|Labor Day||In March, schedule a day off from work 6 months to the day from the last Labor Day holiday to use as you please--relaxing, family time, helping others, etc.|
|New Year's Eve/Day||On June 30/July 1, celebrate another "New Year" for you ~ complete with some celebrating on June 30th Eve, refocusing on your New Year's theme for the next 6 months (or even making a new one) and, most importantly, a feeling of excitement and anticipation for a fresh "restart" of your year.|
|Thanksgiving Day||In May, 6 months to the day from the last Thanksgiving Day holiday take a few moments to think about what you are thankful for in your life. Give yourself bonus points if you take action on those thoughts!|
Thankful for a person? Tell them.
Thankful to be employed? Show it with a little extra effort at work that day.
Thankful for having food to eat? Don't waste any food that day or donate any extra you have to a Food Bank.
|Valentine's Day||Celebrate a "day of love" with the one you love on August 14.|
|Veteran's Day||In May, 6 months to the day from the last Veteran's Day holiday (at a time when they aren't expecting it or have heard it recently), send a note/care package to a soldier or tell a veteran "Thank you" for their service.|
