4. Celebration with Food (Our BAE! Which we keep on forcing away)
Keep the workout and fitness regime for working week and simply indulge in good food (Trust me! This is exactly what your soul is looking for). For our entire hectic week, the very important thing that we ignore is food!
So just break the habit and indulge in cooking and if you don’t feel like investing your time to cook then there are various apps like Caviar, Butcher Box and Uber Eats which can help you get delivery of reasonable snacking items to your home.
5. Fly Away for the ENTIRE WEEKEND
MLK day brings the best perk for us as we can simply plan a small getaway starting from Friday and getting back home on Monday!
So grab the opportunity and get out of your home just visit Crystal Travel and get the best deals far but no so far away from your home.
A small vacation is even prescribed by doctors, so make sure that you leave and relieve your stress and take along extra carry-ons.
6. Be the Award-Winning Host!
If the previous point does not work for you then keep on reading because staying at home is sure going to be worth it, so this year Celebrate Martin Luther King Day in a different way!
Be the Monica Geller among your F.R.I.E.N.D.S and host the party full fun and surprises, but also make sure that you don’t burden yourself with extra work.
So keep the invite list to the minimum, in fact just 1 or 2 couple friends could also work, to bring a twist in the same you can turn it into a potluck party.
7. Celebrate by Making some Cash

8. Be the Real You (Freak?!, Workaholic?!)
If you’re a total control freak just like I’m and the word relaxation in your dictionary means doing daily chores, then relax by bringing a change in the home. Decorate or redecorate your stuff, you can find some amazing stuff at Walmart.
This brings in new energy at your cozy corner and always keeps you occupied along with a change which proves to be refreshing for workaholic freaks like us.
But whatever you do never opt for doing office work at home, these two territories (i.e. Home and office) are meant to be kept apart.
9. National Day of Service
Celebrate Martin Luther King Day by helping others, pick up the cause that you would want to associate with and lend a helping hand.
There are various beautification projects around various campuses which will be willing to take you in as a Volunteer.

10. Teach yourself more about History. Knowledge Never Hurts!
Watching movies on King’s life will be the best way to
Martin Luther King Day. Start with the movie “Our Friend, Martin”, visit Hulu and get your free trial.
