National Toasted Marshmallow Day – August 30

marshmallow-roastDid you know that the marshmallow originally came from a marsh mallow plant or that it started as a candy in Ancient Egypt?

Sitting by the camping fire…making smores or roasting marshmallows.  There is nothing like the total relaxation of a peaceful night by the fire.

The end of the August tells us that summer is unofficially coming to an end.  It is important that we get ourselves ready for the busyness of the fall but it is equally important to ensure that the summer holidays are not forgotten.  We need to hang on to the sense of calm and peacefulness that sitting by the campfire gave us.


Beverly’s Hot Tips For Celebrating National Toasted Marshmallow Day:

  • Visualization is a powerful stress management strategy.  You may not be anywhere near a campfire roasting marshmallows, but your mind can certainly take you there when you need a moment to relax.  Funny thing is that if your mind can take you there, your body will follow and will become as relaxed as if you were actually there.
  • There still may be time to plan one last campfire before it is back to school and back to work.  Break out the marshmallows and enjoy!
  • And if there is no time left for a relaxing campfire, break out the marshmallows anyway, and play a game of Chubby Bunny with your friends and family…not sure what it is…add marshmallows to your mouth one at a time to see how many you can stuff in while still being able to say “Chubby Bunny”!  Disgusting,  but good for a belly laugh!
