Celebration Of Life Month – January 2023

The time to celebrate the reason we are all here occurs during Celebration Of Life Month, which is observed throughout January. This special holiday was created by Food for Health International to encourage us to step back from our usually busy lives and appreciate our existence.

History of Celebration Of Life Month

When was the last time you took a step back to appreciate the fact that you’re able to see a new day, or better yet, a new year entirely? If you can’t recall, you don’t need to beat yourself up about it because we are all guilty of that sometimes. Celebration Of Life Month, however, gives us the perfect opportunity to do better, and be more grateful.

The holiday season often brings a wave of gratitude for most people, with the season being kicked off with Thanksgiving. We are grateful for family, friends, food, and even a good work year. We seem to be grateful for almost everything but forget to celebrate life itself.

This observance allows us to recuperate from the holiday festivities, take a break, honor our bodies, and prepare for the year ahead. A healthy life starts with a healthy body, and with the new year comes a lot of resolutions that we oftentimes can’t keep up with. This observance makes things easier by just letting us enjoy life, and do things all through the month that edifies the body, mind, and soul.

Food for Health International is a company focused on the production and distribution of dry foods, whole foods, and portable solar technology for emergency situations. They produce quality products on time and at affordable prices. They created Celebration Of Life Month to encourage us to celebrate each day and cater to our bodies, which in turn caters to our souls.

Celebration Of Life Month occurs throughout January, giving us a grateful entry into the year, and setting the standard for prioritizing our bodies.

Celebration Of Life Month FAQs

How do I observe Celebration Of Life Month?

This is one of the easiest holidays to celebrate because all you need to do is whatever makes you happy! Relax, meditate, take walks, exercise, do whatever makes you feel alive. 

What is the difference between Celebration Of Life Week and Celebration Of Life Month?

Both observances serve the same purpose, which is to encourage us to live and celebrate our lives to the fullest. However, Celebration Of Life Week occurs in the first week of January, and Celebration Of Life Month was created by Food for Health International and is observed throughout the same month. The latter also focuses more on keeping our bodies in the best shape.

Unfortunately, the Food for Health International store has been permanently closed.
