March Forth is observed next on Monday, March 4th, 2024 (9 days from today).
March Forth is a made-up holiday celebrated each year on March 4. Its purpose is to encourage people to do something new to enrich their lives or the lives of those in their community.
History of March Forth
Its name is pronounced on the words, Wednesday of March, when spoken, sounds like a parade used to convey action and moving forward.

How to celebrate March Forth
1. Visit Your Happy Place
When you're feeling sad or angry, learn what psychologists call "anchor experiences" to help shake off negative thoughts.
Your mooring experience can take any form - be it an actual place you've been or a happy memory with loved ones or even a fictional dream - as long as it makes you feel happy just thinking about it. The best part is that you can go back to your mooring experience whenever you want to think of something positive that makes you feel happy and safe, Dr.
2. Keep a Gratitude Journal
There is a difference between a gratitude journal and a daily journal. For starters, the act of recording what you're grateful for should be an easy, uplifting experience, not something you feel compelled to do. The thoughts you write down in this journal will help you focus on what's good in your life. Why? Because all of them are good for your health! A study about Personality and Individual Differences showed that grateful people will experience less pain and feel healthier than others.
Find a beautiful diary that makes you happy and spend it just recording your gratitude. It's ideal to write in it every day, but to avoid it becoming a chore, give yourself the freedom to write in it as you please - just make sure you actually use it! When you're feeling sad and negative, pull out your journal and write down two or three things you're grateful for. And on days when life sends a lot of positive vibes your way, spend even more time journaling. Feeling down but can't think of something to write about? View and re-read your journal to remind yourself of the positive things you've encountered in your life.
3. Make a list of interesting experiences that you have to go through
If you take some times to think about the worst possible outcome, you're not alone. Life can be overwhelming, and sometimes trying to redirect your thoughts won't be enough to get you out of the negative cycle. What can work, however, is that in the first place, you'll distract yourself from those thoughts by focusing your attention on creating positive experiences.
Make a list of all the activities and experiences that make you feel comfortable, happy, and/or calm. Maybe it's enjoying a fancy piece of chocolate, going for a walk with friends, soaking in a spa-style bath, listening to your favorite album, watching your favorite comedian, reading a new book, doodling on notebook or even just cuddling with a loved one or furry friend on the couch. Whatever it is, add it to your list and then put it where you can easily see it.
From there, try to experience at least one thing on your list each day (but don't beat yourself up if you sometimes miss a day). When you're feeling particularly down or exhausted, consult your list to remind yourself of the things that can help you get out of this mindset, pick one, do it, and really try face to experience. At the end of the day, write down what brought you joy from that experience (you can use your gratitude journal above!) and plan the next day's activity.
4. Keep a Jar of Accomplishments
It feels great when someone notices your hard work. Therefore, why not apply the power of words to yourself to promote more positive thoughts within yourself. Completing a challenging mission? Put it in the jar! Make a new friend? Average time! Finish your Sudoku in record time? Bottle! Facing a lifelong fear of public speaking? You guessed it: jar! This simple but effective positive thinking exercise can help you realize all the things that you need to get done.
5. Surround Yourself With Positive Affirmations
Practicing positive affirmations is an effective way in many difficult situations. By using sticky notes and a pen, let write down some motivational quotes, positive sentences, or something about yourself. Dr. Sherman says one of the best ways to start is to create positive affirmations specifically for you. Moreover, if you get trouble in thinking about it, let ask your family and your friends to get your description about yourself, Erinna says.
After writing down 10 to 15 notes, repeat the sentences aloud to program them in your mind. For stronger positive thoughts, Dr. Sherman recommends saying affirmations about yourself in the present tense. For example, "I'm vibrant and radiant."
Some other powerful affirmations to boost your self-esteem include, "I am more than enough," "I have the power to achieve my dreams," and "I accept and love myself just as I am. Finally, stick them around your home where you can see them regularly, such as on a mirror, the fridge, next to your reading lamp, or even on your computer keyboard.
