It’s a month-long wellness holiday. If you’re not changing your diet, maybe you’re curious about the whole sauna scene, connecting with nature more via glamping, or prepping for an intervention. Resolutions are out and “intentions” are in, but we all know they’re basically the same thing. On every grocery magazine stand, every morning TV show, everyone’s damn Instagram feed, it’s all about do this, do that, feel better, live longer, be more alive. Here are tips, here are resources, here’s a roadmap to your Best Self.
And maybe this is the former health coach in me, but I kind of love it all. I really love me a fresh start. This year I’m going to go on at least one hike a month. So I say, let’s lean into the holiday aspect of it. If leprechauns are the heroes of St. Patrick’s Day and Baby Yoda is the hero of May the Fourth, we are the heroes of January Wellness Month. Or Januwelly, as I like to call it. You, yes, YOU, are the hero this time. Isn't that amazing?
Here at Thrillist, we are celebrating Januwelly in earnest. We’ve shared the best non-alcoholic beers and energizing office snacks, and in the coming weeks we’ll be telling you all about dry cocktails, plant-based yogurt and ice cream, whether this whole oat milk thing is overblown, and do-gooder sweeteners.
