June 2015

We made it! Summer is officially here (well, after June 21) and it brings about a whole slew of new things to look forward to. Days get longer, healthy living routines change to involve the outdoors and schedules often include much more playtime — for adults and kids.

June also holds fun nationally-recognized days both familiar and not so conventional:

Best Friends Day, Monday, June 8: Friends are important! Sometimes as adults, friendships take a backseat but there are several reasons they shouldn’t. They provide companionship, support and an outlet that is incomparable — even (or especially!) in summer.

National Corn on the Cob Day, Thursday, June 11: Who knew there was an entire day dedicated to one of summer’s most infamous foods? We didn’t here at Nature’s Pathways, but we’ll be marking it on our calendars from now on. (Keep in mind that Wisconsin corn on the cob isn’t typically ready until late July, so a belated celebration may be in order.) Yum!

Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21: The third Sunday of June is always set aside to honor our favorite fathers — whether they’re biological, adoptive or a surrogate of some sort. We love our dads and love the special day to spoil them!

Take Your Dog to Work Day, Friday, June 26: It’s no surprise that Nature’s Pathways loves pets, so when we saw this nationally recognized day distinguishing one of our favorites, we had to add it to the list.

Have a great June, and let us know which of the above you’ll be celebrating this year via our social media pages!

Employed by Speedo researchers in 2009, reverse brainstorming is a creative thinking technique that helped the team conceptualize new designs for competitive swimwear when the company’s revolutionary and controversial swimsuits were banned after the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

Everyday life and social interactions could be looked at as a finely tuned dance. But for some that dance is not so synchronized and connected.

They say it is all about location, and there could be no better location for 43/90 North Earth Gifts than the welcoming village of Spring Green softly nestled as it is in the scenic beauty of the Wisconsin River Valley. Here in 2000, Cecilia Farran created a haven of peaceful…
All kinds of wonderful books and workshops teach good communication skills and tools. How many of these do you practice? Respect timing. Ask permission or schedule a time. Talk in turns. Give your partner a chance to speak. Use “I” statements. Using the word “you” tends to sound like blame,…
Meet Jen. She is the manager at Divine Body & Styles, a busy mom of 2 boys and needed a new look! We chose her for this month’s makeover because even beauty professionals sometimes need some updating and advice from others. When you get busy taking care of others, it…
It seems like families of children with autism or other disorders are always on the lookout for alternative services, and our family is no different. We have found that the medical conditions that arise from our child are not necessarily textbook examples. We have had to learn to search and…
