30 Things To Do For You In June

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

  • Make a summer bucket list with all the ways you’ll take care of yourself over the next few months.
  • Treat yourself to a delicious homemade smoothie.
  • Take a walk. It doesn’t matter how long, just get out and get moving.
  • Reflect on your year so far. Write down the ways that you’ve grown.
  • Try a new workout routine or exercise class. I like Fitness Marshall on Youtube!
  • Relax with a guided meditation. The Calm App has a bunch of good ones. 
  • Write a note of gratitude to someone who looked out for you this year.
  • Reach out to someone you haven’t talked to recently.
  • Start a new audiobook. I highly recommend Do Less by Kate Northrup
  • Have a picnic in the park with your favorite snacks and people.
  • Start the “Summer of Me” challenge with the Mama Knows It All community. Sign up to get your complimentary digital journal!

Prefer a physical copy of the Summer of Me journal? Get it on Amazon for under ten bucks!

  • Follow a yoga video online to stretch and relax. 
  • Take some time to clean out your phone. Delete bad photos and numbers you don’t need anymore.
  • Watch an episode of one of your favorite old shows that will make you feel nostalgic.
  • Turn on one of your favorite songs and dance like you used to back in the day.
  • Do something fun with a friend today. Or by yourself, if you prefer. 
  • Dedicate a day to decluttering and organizing a space in your home that needs some love.
  • Celebrate Father’s Day by honoring the special dad in your life. If you’re not celebrating, try your hand at homesteading with a sewing or soapmaking class! 
  • Start reading “The 1619 Project” by Nikole Hannah-Jones in honor of Juneteenth.
  • Take a digital detox day and disconnect from screens to focus on self-care.
  • First day of summer! Eat some ice cream or fresh fruit to celebrate.
  • Take a dance class or dance like nobody’s watching in the comfort of your own home.
  • Explore a new hiking trail or walking route.
  • Check out local farmer’s market for affordable and delicious produce.
  • Try some self-massage to help with bloating. Try this massage I found on Pinterest.
  • Test out a new dinner recipe. These Fajita Sliders were delicious!
  • Do a screen-free evening. Instead of television or scrolling the phone, do something else like painting or a puzzle. 
  • Visit a local museum or art gallery.
  • Stop by a plant nursery (local or at one of the big box stores) and look at all of the pretty greenery.
  • Plan a family game night with board, card, or video games.

Join the Summer of Me Challenge

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! 

We start officially on June 12, but between now and then, this list should keep you busy!&nbsp
