It’s the beginning of a new year, and that makes it the best time to start appreciating the lives that we lead, and the blessings that come to us every day. Part of that recognition is appreciating  our body, and preparing to celebrate the year ahead. Celebration of Life Month is the perfect opportunity for you to unravel from the holidays, take a few days to rest, and prepare yourself for the upcoming months ahead.

 

History of Celebration of Life Month
Food for Health International is a company that focuses on producing and distributing whole food and preparation for emergencies. With its unique techniques and methods they work towards providing rich, healthful food at reduced prices. As part of their mission, they’ve introduced the Celebration of Life Month to help remind everyone that taking care of our bodies is taking care of our souls, and helps us celebrate every day.

How to Celebrate Celebration of Life Month
Start off by taking a few mental health days, just take the time to sit back and relax, and reassess the past year and what you’re going to be doing moving forward with this year. Make a list of fun things you didn’t get to do last year or activities that you want to be sure to do again this year.  Post it in a prominent place to remind you so that you can go to it to recharge when things are just getting too crazy.

Family and friends are an important part of celebrating life, so be sure to take the time to get together with them during Celebration of Life month. Whether it’s a simple lunch date, or a full weekend away in the mountains, take some time this month to get back together with those you love and who support you throughout the year.
