October is by far the creepiest, crawliest, craziest month of the year! But there are some great holidays and observances to celebrate besides Halloween. As always, remember to practice safe social distancing and adhere to local and national guidelines while gathering or participating in any celebrations.
National Do Something Nice Day – October 5th
With the way the world is now, we can forget the little things. On this day, remember every small deed can make an enormous difference to those around you and for yourself!
Global Cat Day – October 16th
So if you know us or have been reading our newsletter…you know we love cats. So much so, we partnered Hope Animal Rescue to sponsor and foster cats. On Global Cat Day this year, check out these cuties and maybe take one home!
National Medical Assistants Day – October 21st
We appreciate everyone who helps care for us. No job is too small when it comes to keeping our loved ones healthy, and Medical Assistants are the backbone of that essential service. Make sure to send a special thank you to any Medical Assistants you know or who help you with your own care.
Halloween – October 31st
Boo! Did we scare you? Hope not…cause Halloween is one of our favorite holidays! But again, it is one that will look much different this year. Remember to be safe and change the way you celebrate this spooky holiday. You can still dress up…and I’m sure there will still be some candy involved.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is one of the most critical awareness months we have highlighted. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (roughly 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime (breastcancer.org). Check-in with your loved ones and be sure they are getting screened and know the facts.
Emotional Wellness Month
We highlighted this above, but this awareness month is especially timely. This year, it is so important to think about yourself and make sure you are taking care of your own emotional well-being. Remember, we are always here to talk and help in any way we can!
