Summer Self-Care Plans
The past year has been a doozy!!! As more people get vaccinated, COVID restrictions are lifting, and we are navigating the potential return to more face-to-face time.
Gathering with others in person might be what you’ve hoped and dreamed for, it might be stirring up your deepest fears and anxieties, or you may be feeling both excitement and dread simultaneously.

Summer 2021 at Burnout Proof Academy – What’s on your summer reading list?
We had such an amazing time in our first Book Club live discussion! We dove deep into Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle.

June 2021 Oil Protocol
Give yourself over to review, renewal, reflection, and rest, as you cross the threshold from spring to summer.
Give yourself permission to feel the sun on your cheek, the breath in your lungs, even the frustrations and the hurts. Make a deal with yourself to offer patience and curiosity whenever possible.
This oil protocol will serve as a reminder and energetic guide.
Thyme – release and forgive
Wintergreen – surrender
Ylang ylang – connect with your inner child
Basil – renewal
Magnolia – compassion
Frank – truth
Dilute essential oils with a carrier oil for increased efficacy and decreased skin sensitivity.
