January 11, 2021 – National Clean Off Your Desk Day | National Hobby Month
What New Hobby Have You Wanted To Try? This Is Your Lucky Month!
Welcome to January 11th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate cleaning up and having more fun.
Anna: Marlo, what’s going on with your desk?
Marlo: What are you talking about?
Anna: I mean, there are so many papers and tchatchkes that I can’t even see the desktop. Do you really need that many Star Trek bobbleheads?
Marlo: Yes I do. And I’m offended that you even have to ask.
Anna: Ok what about all these business cards?
Marlo: Don’t touch that stack!
Anna: You really need to clear this off. No wonder you couldn’t find our meeting notes the other day.
Marlo: I have a system.
Anna: Ok, well, it’s National Clean Off Your Desk Day, so it’s a great time to start fresh and come up with a new system.
Anna: This newspaper is from 2006.
Marlo: I have a system!
They say it takes at least 66 days to form a new habit, and if your resolve is already fading, have no fear. You may just need a better goal. January is National Hobby Month and if your goals have been about denial, why not try some permission instead. That’s right! Permission granted to explore what brings you a little bit of joy each day. If you’ve never thought about hobbies as self care, consider this, indulging in something you love to do isn’t just for your own good, it’s good for those around you too. With this in mind, it’s time to try something new. Whether it’s painting, photography, exercising or crafting, making fun activities part of your daily routine will boost your mood and your overall well being. And that’s a goal you’re bound to keep.
