It’s that time of year again where everyone makes New Year’s Resolutions.  It’s interesting to note that the majority of New Year’s resolutions have to do with health and money.  It’s not a coincidence that both of those are loosely (and sometimes tightly tied together).

I thought that I would visit some of the monthly nationally recognized holidays since I haven’t done that in awhile.

January is National Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month (that is if you live in an area with snow).

Prior to hitting the slopes, make sure that you have your medical insurance in place.  If you are learning to ski or snowboard without snow then I would advise having your life insurance in place as well.

I guess if you don’t live in an area with snow, it would be National Learn to Surf and Consume Fruity Drinks Month.

Now, if skiing or snowboarding is a bit too risky for your blood (or your deductible) then it’s also World Hypnotism Day, which you could partake in prior to hitting the slopes and probably ski like an Olympian.   You might not remember that triple axel jump, but at least someone would have a great video to show of you on YouTube (or to give to the ski patrol when you’re stuck in that tree).

World Hypnotism Day might also be good for those whose behavior on New Year’s might be questionable – would be a good excuse, anyway.

It’s not a coincidence that ACS Insurance can help you with your health and life insurance…just not the hypnotism part.

This month’s winner is George Higgins.  George is a client of ACS Insurance and just recently added additional products to his portfolio.

You can be entered into our drawing as well; all you need to do is refer someone to our agency, call for a quote, or “like” us on Facebook. (I could keep repeating this, but I don’t think hypnotism works via email).

Until next month,

“Silly people, serious about insurance.”

It’s also No Name Calling Week, which is something that evidently the NFL didn’t know about prior to last week’s games.
