The `X-Men: First Class` actress is due to give birth to her first child later this year and is pleased she has had a break from working in order to prepare her house for the impending new arrival.
January - who has not disclosed the father of her baby - told Pop Sugar: "I`ve been enjoying a nice break.
"I`ve been in a nesting phase just preparing my house and stuff. I`ve had the luxury of a couple months off."
January recently revealed she feels "lucky" with how well her pregnancy is progressing, though she is a little disappointed she has not had any odd cravings.
The actress - who is planning to raise her baby as a single parent - said: "I feel great. I haven`t had any weird physical side effects. I feel pretty lucky so far.
"Everybody is asking if I`ve had any odd cravings. I haven`t yet. It`s a bummer. I wish I had something weird to tell."
While she is planning to be a single mother, January - whose relationship with `Saturday Night Live` star Jason Sudeikis ended earlier this year - recently revealed she would like to go out with an "interesting" guy, but admitted it was tough to find love.
She said: "I would love to find an interesting man to date but people don`t seem to date so much anymore. It`s more of a hanging out process.
"It`s hard to find romance, the kind of love story that carries you away. I would love to have that. I`m pretty idealistic when it comes to love."
