Dares come in all shapes, sizes, and forms, and there is no limit to them. If you are planning a prank or asking your crush out for a date, then look no further than this date.

World Reef Awareness Day

If you are a nature lover, then the World Reef Awareness Day on June 1st will bring a smile to your face as, on this day, people around the world help in creating awareness for the ecosystem in the ocean’s coral reef through active engagement. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn about the importance of reefs and how you can protect them.

The Coral reefs are rock-like structures beneath the ocean floor and home to millions of sea creatures. These creatures rely on the reefs because they serve as their life support system and also provide their food. Unfortunately, because of pollution and global warming, these reefs are perishing. You can also blame the chemical sunscreens that tourists use and uncontrolled tourism at these coral reef regions.

On this day, you can help create a healthy reef ecosystem by spreading the message of the importance of the reefs and protecting them by using non-chemical-based sunscreens and also by eliminating the use of plastics. Remember that healthy ocean life depends on healthy coral reefs to survive, and you can make a difference today.

Besides, there are lots of benefits of going barefoot, which include improved balance, enhancing the leg muscles, and good posture.

The combination of delicious marshmallows and walnuts in a bowl of chocolate ice cream was the initial preparation by William Dreyerin the 1920s, who is said to be the inventor of Rocky Road ice cream; but some claim George Farren blended a candy bar with chocolate ice cream and invented this delicious version of this favorite summer treat.

Frustrated by the daily routine of coming to your office and spending your time away from your loved ones in an office cubicle throughout the day? National Leave The Office Early Day is what you need to cheer up. On June 2 of each year, you can take an early day to have a fun time with your friends and family without the need to worry about your office work.

You can thank Laura Stack, the brainchild behind National Leave The Office Early Day. She opened our eyes by showing that Americans work about 49 hours a week, which is higher than an average European, and it can take a toll on them. Studies have shown that taking a day off can improve the productivity of an organization as employees can take some time off and utilize it for some much-needed family time, which results in them being more focused. So plan a movie night with your loved one or go for a ball game on this day and use it to the fullest.
