These days there鈥檚 a 鈥渄ay鈥 for everything 鈥 especially in the US. There鈥檚 National Pancake Day. Lumpy Rug Day. Hedgehog Day. There鈥檚 even聽literally聽a day called Cat Herders Day. CAT HERDERS. On an international level, it鈥檚 a little harder to get a 鈥渄ay,鈥 which is why we鈥檙e pretty jazzed that the United Nations just gave yoga its own day.


India鈥檚聽Prime Minister Narendra Modi proposed a resolution that suggested yoga could help unite people over important global issues, and聽the UN General Assembly thought so too. They officially declared June 21 International Yoga Day, so mark those calendars. And start getting ready for it by jumping on that New Year鈥檚 Resolution STAT.

How did you celebrate Cat Herders Day, by the way? Let us know in the comments.聽
