Life Week is a 7-day-long period of joy and festivity, where we are awoken to celebrate life itself! There is no concrete evidence on who invented Life Week, but what we do know is that this season has been celebrated for millennia by many different cultures.
While New Year's revelries often take centre stage, Life Week, spanning from January 1st to January 7th, is a lesser-known time of introspection and reflection, where we are called to unearth the many joys of the previous year. This week prompts us to enjoy and acknowledge simple things, like the time we spend with our loved ones!💌
How do I participate in Life Week?
Well, it's simple, really. The first step is rejoicing that everyone around us, including ourselves, is still breathing. This is crucial, yet it's often overlooked. Why is that? Well, although this question has countless answers, at ZNotes, we believe it's because our minds focus on the bigger picture without giving credit to the vibrant colours present in it. So, appreciating your physical self for putting up with you through all the highs and lows, and sustaining to celebrate another triumph around the Sun must certainly be a worthy cause to celebrate.
There are many ways to get involved with Life Week but our team has collected the ones we ought better, and here they are:
Host a Party💃
As the holiday festivities wind down, we understand that fatigue may have set in. So, we encourage you to host a small get-together with the closest people in your life and simply celebrate. Seize this opportunity to engage in heartfelt conversations about the past and future, create new memories, or reminisce about the ones already made. Let's cherish the moment together. Carpe diem!
Give Yourself a Break🍭
Treat yourself to lunch at a restaurant, a spa day, the movies or even just a tour around your city. We are not machines, we need to rest, recollect our energies and embrace self-love. Whatever you do always remember to honour yourself.
You are, after all, the captain of your Sea.
Go for a Walk🚶♂️
Take a breather and put on some comfortable shoes, grab your headphones and just go for a long walk. During this walk, make sure to be present, and keep your gadgets aside. Watch the sky change colours, feel the moving air and simply be in the moment.
Life week is all about life. It's all about the things that shape us, motivate us and keep us moving forward. Join us on a journey of acknowledgement and appreciation as we delve into the vibrant tapestry of Life Week festivities!
That's all for today and see you very soon!⛅
