Weekly Roundup 17: May Is...

2024 is moving along pretty quickly, and we're already a week into the fifth month of the year. I appreciate that May brings flowers and greenery into my life, and more opportunities to be outside in the spring sunshine before the heat of summer kicks in.

But May is also a great month to focus on physical and mental health, as it is...

  • Mental Health Awareness Month
  • Better Sleep Month
  • National Walking Month
  • Women's Health Care Month
  • Blood Pressure Month
  • Arthritis Awareness Month
  • National Salad Month
  • Lupus Awareness Month, and
  • Bike Month
May includes these notable health and safety weeks:
  • Nurse's Week
  • National Police Week, and
  • Emergency Medical Services Week
And as far as special days go, I am looking forward to:
  • Eat What You Want Day (May 11)
  • Mother's Day (second Sunday in May)
  • National Chocolate Chip Day (May 15)
  • Love a Tree Day (May 16)
  • Lucky Penny Day (May 23)
  • World Turtle Day (May 23)
  • National Wine Day (May 25)
  • Water a Flower Day (May 30)
  • National Macaroon Day (May 31)
The world is hectic and stressful, and I encourage you all to set aside time to care for your physical and mental health this month. Additionally, take a second to thank the people who help keep you healthy and safe, and who bring joy and fun (and macaroons) into your life.

May is also Graduation Month, and I'm so happy and proud that son #2 will be graduating from university on Mother's Day. (The day after Windmill Day.)

Be well! I'll see you next week.
