Welcome to the New Year! While there aren’t too many major holidays in January, there are plenty of fun things to do. Maybe it’s all for the best, after the year we’ve had it might be fun just to relax for a bit. But as always, whatever you do, remember to be careful and adhere to all precautions and restrictions, even as they begin to change. You can never be too careful, especially with hope on the horizon.
New Year’s Day – January 1st
This is sort of the big one this month. Make sure to get your rest after the celebration from the night before☺. We are so happy to leave last year behind and look forward to what 2021 has in store. The new year is full of potential and possibilities – get ready to seize the day!
Elvis Presley’s Birthday – January 8th
Thank you…thank you very much… We love the classics here at Arbor Springs. And you don’t get more classic than Elvis Presley. So celebrate with some tunes, or even some of those movies he was in, and rock out a little bit.
National Clean Your Desk Day – January 11th
The new year is a great time to make a fresh start. For many people, this starts with a good clean up. Even if you don’t have a desk, today might be a good day to clean up your own personal space. Whatever you use often, go ahead and make it look nice and tidy.
National Nothing Day – January 16th
We all had a difficult 2020. Today is a great day to sit back and do nothing. Relax with your favorite hobby, food, or just take some extra time to sleep in and recharge your batteries. Sometimes, doing nothing is the best way to get things done!
Martin Luther King Jr. Day – January 18th
This day honors the life, achievements, and lasting imprint Martin Luther King Jr. left on our country and the world. His legacy permeates not only our story as Americans but the discussion of who we are and want to be as a nation. Take today to reflect on his life and how you can continue to honor him and his ideals.
National Compliment Day – January 24th
Did you know that giving a compliment to someone also benefits you!? Not only do they foster positive mental attitudes and habits, but they also help us appreciate the good people and things in our life. Today, try giving someone a compliment. Anyone! Even if it’s not really your thing…new year, new you!
Opposite Day – January 25th
This is a silly and fun day, which is always a great idea, but it is also an important day. If you’ve been following us for a while now, you know we love strengthening our minds. Well, one way to do this is by performing tasks backward or with your opposite hand. Do your daily routine in reverse or with your off-hand. Do it opposite, and grow your mind.
