2021 Wellness and Travel Calendar

At Talent Courtyard, we are getting ready for 2021 so this might be a great opportunity for you to think about what you are looking forward to next year! For that reason, we would love to share with you a very useful list that we put together to include all-year national and international wellbeing awareness days and other important dates highlighting mainly mental health, wellness and tourism key dates as Talent Courtyard’s wellbeing events merge these three important areas. 

Important dates of January 2021:

* January 1: New Year’s Day
* January 3: Festival of Sleep Day
* January 4: Walk Your Dog Month
* January 5: National Mentoring Month (US)
* January 6: Dry January
* January 7: Veganuary
* January 16: World Religion Day 2021 (International)
* January 18: Brew Monday
* January 18: Blue Monday 2021 (UK):

Blue Monday, also known as the most depressing day of the year, was first referenced by Sky Travel in 2005. To predict holidays booking trends, Dr Cliff Arnal, a British psychologist, came up with a formula to calculate when people are most likely to book trips to sunny and warm destinations. Hence, the third Monday in January was found to be the most depressing day of the year and the day with high numbers of people looking to book their escapes. If you are interested in traveling from the comfort of your home, our Virtual Retreats are designed to convey the holiday feeling while offering workshops that combine relaxation, personal development, networking opportunities and fun!
