January: National Get Organized Month & More

january2014 has arrived a time for many of us to consider resolutions for the New Year.  While you are contemplating your resolutions for 2014, you should keep in mind these few important happenings in January.

January is National Get Organized Month. Take this opportunity to get your records in order, update your beneficiaries, clean out your files from 2013 and start fresh this New Year.

January is also National Radon Action Month. As a homeowner you’ll want to make sure your home is safe.

You can’t see radon, but it’s not hard to find out if you have a radon problem in your home. All you need to do is test for radon. Testing is easy and should only take a few minutes of your time.

The amount of radon in the air is measured in “picocuries per liter of air,” or “pCi/L.” There are many kinds of low-cost “do-it-yourself” radon test kits you can get through the mail and in some hardware stores and other retail outlets.

Some other note worthy observances in January include:

Martin Luther King Day

Cervical Health Awareness Month

National Birth Defects Prevention Month

Regardless of whether you have a resolution in place or not, take this time to start the New Year off with a clean slate. Make to 2014 the best it can be.

Here are a few inspirational quotes to get you motivated for 2014.
