Events and Celebrations
GRIEF AWARENESS DAY reminds us to look after others who are grieving and to look after ourselves. Just letting someone know that you are there for them may be enough – other times, a more active role may be called for. Don’t shortchange yourself either. If you are dealing with loss, please take care of yourself and if needed, seek help.
NATIONAL HOLISTIC PET DAY is all about looking after your entire pet’s wellbeing. Besides feeding and vet visits, making time for play and exercise does a pet good. Now, if you can get your animal to meditate with you, go for it.
NATIONAL BEACH DAY may offer the therapy we have been looking for. The rhythmic lapping of the waves, the pristine view of the ocean, and being able to relax and enjoy yourself really melt away the worries and troubles. If you are not close to a beach – bring the beach to you. Fix yourself a daiquiri, put on some island music, turn off your phone and let your imagination do the rest.
TOASTED MARSHMALLOW DAY goes right along with our day at the beach. Get a little flame going, break out that bag of marshmallows and toast them to your idea of perfection.
