What a lovely day! Even though clouds are already gathering in the sky, the weather will definitely last until the evening. And today everything will go like clockwork! Even if you are already a little late for a meeting or submitting a school assignment, you know that everything will be fine in the end. Even in difficult and unpleasant moments, look on the bright side and stay positive. Remember to cheer up pessimists and encourage them to think more optimistically.

World Wetlands Day

Library Lovers’ Month
Go to your favourite library and choose a book to your liking. A good book can be our best friend. Irish writer Richard Steele stressed the importance of reading with the famous phrase that "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."
January 31 is a backward day! How fun is that? Today, do everything oppositely. Wear your clothes with the back in front, say goodbye on arrival and say goodbye when you leave. Turn your back to the person you are talking to, start lunch with the dessert, and finish it with soup.
Your home should smell of delicious croissants today! Although we call it the French croissant, it does not come from France but Austria. Celebrate this day by baking croissants or learning how to prepare them in a confectionery course. Bon Appetit!
Did you know that in addition to being extremely fun, puzzles help improve memory, raise IQ, prevent the development of Alzheimer's disease, and reduce the impact of stress? So find a brain teaser, be it a puzzle, a crossword puzzle, sudoku or a word hunt, and get busy.
