June is here, and it brings with it an abundance of summer days filled with adventure, longer daylight hours, and sunny skies.
As we embrace this lively month, it’s essential to prioritize self-care and nurture our overall well-being.
Just like April showers bring May flowers, June is the perfect time to focus on your roots, and make room for yourself to bloom.
That’s why I’m declaring this the Summer of Me!
Before I get into that, check out this list of 30 days to do for yourself this month.
30 Things To Do For You In June
If you’re ready to bloom with me this summer, join the Summer of Me Challenge. It’s an opportunity to connect with like-minded folks and receive regular inspiration to make the most out of this summer. The focus for this summer is on rest, relaxation, and reflection. Oh, and of course, fun!
I recently shared my story of how burnout led me to leave my previous job. So many folks reached out to me who had similar feelings of wanting to prioritize themselves over work. As such, the challenge will focus on rejuvenation, and thanks to our presenting sponsor, Dr. Cristie Ritz-King, we’ll learn real ways to combat stress, learn how to relax, and find time for ourselves.
When I set out to find a presenting sponsor, I had hoped to partner with someone who would complement the challenge and be able to provide a level of expertise that folks are clearly in need of when it comes to self-care. Well, the universe was listening because Dr. Cristi Ritz-King answered the call and she is the truth!!!
She is launching a community for women who are on the verge of…something. They may be burned out, ready for the next thing, or looking to thrive where they are. (Don’t worry, I’ll share more about her program later in the summer!)
Dr. Cristie is certified as a doula, meditation, and yoga teacher, and holistic health coach. She also earned two Master’s degrees. One in education and one in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, with a Crisis and Trauma specialty. Most recently, she earned a Doctorate in Psychology with a focus on Maternal Mental Health. As I said, she’s the truth!
Meet our Summer of Me partners:
In addition to Dr. Cristie, we also have several presenting partners who will share their expertise with us all summer long. From finding a new job, to how to make your home smell lovely, to making space for mental health and remembering to PLAY, we’re going to have a good time!
You’ll learn more about these folks as the challenge goes on!
