“Skateboarding: Because gravity is a terrible thing to waste”, “splinters in your feet and asphalt in your teeth”, “Scars are like cheap tattoos”,” I will not stop until I am physically disabled”,” skateboarding is not a crime”; all are some of skateboarding lovers’ slogans who celebrate on June 21st of every year, the rapture of skateboarding.
Originated from the “No Skateboarding” signs which often have been changed to “Go Skateboarding”; GO SKATEBOARDING DAY is an attempt to promote the sport of skateboarding and make it more accessible to the world through various events held in major cities around the world.
The date June 21st was picked since it’s officially the first day of summer. It was first celebrated in 2004 by skateboarding companies to get people to skate and make money; however, GO SKATEBOARDING DAY has since become an occasion to celebrate Skateboarding as a lifestyle, sport and activity.
To all skateboarders: Skateboarding is not a STATE of body, it is a SKATE of mind….

EAT YOUR VEGETABLES DAY (JUNE 17)
If you do not “carrot” all about vegetables, today is a perfect day to start considering vegetables into your diet; EAT YOUR VEGETABLES DAY was created to promote a healthier diet by encouraging people to introduce a vegetable portion in every meal of this day or even to replace snacks with vegetables. In other words, maintaining a vegetarian diet for the whole day is the best way to honor this event.
Studies show that, in addition to vegetables’ physical health benefits, mental well-being is also affected by vegetables intake. The more vegetables you eat, the happier you are; eating seven to eight portions of vegetables is more strongly associated with happiness and overall well-being than employment status. On the whole, maintaining your mental well-being requires seven daily servings of fruits and vegetables, but surveys also showed that people who ate just five servings a day were as happy—or very nearly so—as people who ate higher amounts.
As the saying goes, “you are what you eat”; take a minute to think about what you eat everyday, and make up your mind between what “keeps me healthy from my head “tomato”” or what “lasts a minute on my lips and a lifetime on my hips”.
