January is the time for resolutions, do something for U for JanUary. Being active doesn’t have to mean running or spending time down the gym. Help out in your local community garden, join a walking club, join Good Gym where you can get your exercise whilst helping others.
Wow! A day dedicated to hugs! How much better can it get? So find a friend or family member and give them a great big one!
There are thousands of spoken languages in the world and along with that, lots of different traditions and ways of life. But what connects us all? You got it, laughter! Global Belly Laugh Day will celebrate one of our most natural and universal reflexes on 24 January, so be sure to tune into to your inner comedian and reap the health benefits - not to mention the feel good factor - of laughing! Even better, celebrate the day with friends!
26 January - 2 February
Storytelling is a valuable tool for engaging people through their emotions, values and imaginations. Hold a storytelling session in your local community space so everyone can enjoy the benefits.
