Lower everyone, welcome to another episode of my podcast. I cannot wait to go through today's Shore episode with you because we're talking about the June challenge. Currently it is May 31st. I'm going to be releasing this today so you have it just in time for the start of a new month. And I posted this graphic on Instagram that I made today and it's all about the June talent that I'm going to be going through with you. And I cannot wait for this because I love a good challenge. You know, this, I have thousands of people that already saved this post and loads of people already tagged in their friends to do with them. So I'm going to go through this June challenge with you. And this challenge is a bit different to the other challenges that I've been posting. I'm over the past few months. I do a challenge on the 1st of each month and I've been doing this for I think about 4 months. I think, I think and they are usually very personal development. Self-care focused.
Amazing. And that's kind of everything I like to talk about, but this one, I really wanted it to be a lot more motivational in the sense that you will actually really see physical and mental progress. Distinct, distinct progress, if you do this for 30 days, you know what's in June me of summer is here basically and we all want to feel really inspired and motivated and I love feeling that hit that burst of discipline a motivation during a time like this when it comes to everything in life with work. I've been really really on it as the app is launching in 3 weeks officially and I've just been completely motivated and disciplined when it comes to that my personal development I have been waking up early again. Thank God and I'm feeling really motivated to do my routines to do my meditations and I'm really feeling the difference. I don't know if you guys can hear it in my voice but I'm feeling very positive and refresh and I'm excited for the new month and I've been feeling great sticking to a new discipline. I was talked about her discipline isn't always
Nothing. And it's actually usually a very good thing, practicing self-discipline and not giving into immediate gratification of wanting to sleep in or wanting to, you know, be on your phone and scroll on Tik-Tok all day and actually creating that discipline to get up and do what, you know, you need to do. It's very powerful and I didn't bodying it lately. So I'm going to go through this challenge with you is going to be a quick episode because full transparency been parents are on their way here from the airport and I think they're going to be here any minute. They're coming to visit for two weeks and I'm very excited but it's also going to be a full house. So I kind of want to not be podcasting when they're here. I will be doing next week's episode, of course. But I mean like today they're just getting here today. So my June Thailand is designed to help you feel motivated and actually see progress in your mind and your body. So the first kind of their five main things that I want to do in this June challenge, the first one is walk 8000 to 10.
Thousand steps per day. This is hard and I've been wearing my Apple watch lately, and I'm usually probably, right before this challenge, I was probably getting ready for 5,000 steps today and I wanted to give it some room so I don't want to say just 10,000. I wanted it to be like 8 to 10 thousand, because I honestly think 10,000 is a bit unrealistic for me and for everyone else at the moment. If you are working a full-time job and you're really busy 10,000 steps, can be a bit of a stretch, it's obviously doable. But if we're gonna be doing this for 30 days, cuz I kind of want to do something slightly more sustainable, at least. So 8,000 is very doable and it just gets you out of the house a little bit more, just kind of little walk through at the day. 8000 steps actually doesn't take that long and that number one on the June challenge was because it is very impactful and not just for body for your mind to, this kind of forces you to get out of
How is going to Nature? Go walk around be more active throughout your day. So the Mind and Body by June towns. Point that I wanted to put in there because it really helps with both and Loki. If you're looking to maybe tone up a little bit at the moment, it's a very powerful thing to do is phone. Walking is still good for feeling good and your body. So next is Wake Me Up 1 hour, early to journal and meditate no phone time during this time, I didn't want to put an hour at a time to wake up cuz we're all different. All of our schedules are different. The Wake Me Up 1 hour before you usually wake up is a really good kind of frame at 2 to replicate hear. It gives you the time to really focus on yourself before the rest of the day before, you can give yourself excuses a young time to meditate, you don't have time to journal and do your morning routine. So Wake Me Up 1 hour early to journal and meditate and not being on technology during this time. So important.
Step number three in my gym, challenge is connect with friends that motivate and inspire you and distance yourself from the ones that don't make it a little fun challenge for yourself. You don't need to tell anybody you're doing this but spend a little bit more time with the friends that make you feel good and a little bit less time with the ones that don't make you feel so good. You don't need to ditch them and have a whole friend break up. If that's, you know, this big dramatic thing you don't want to do but the ones that don't make you feel great and the ones that don't really get you to think big in life and on top of that they don't make you feel good. You know that you shouldn't really be giving all your energy to the high-end including inspiring friends in your circle is so important. I personally have a strict boundary with that if if there is someone in my Social Circle in my life, that doesn't make me feel good about myself and maybe makes me feel bad about having big goals that kind of just I automatically get turned off of hanging out with them. So, take that as you will. But in the
And I'd love it if if you could connect with more friends that make you feel good and that motivate you and inspire you and you guys can have big conversations together about life and less but gossip and drama. So the fourth step in the June challenge is Reading in the evenings instead of watching TV, okay? You don't need to do this every single night cuz I know it's hard and trust me I know. And when I have a partner, my boyfriend, who wants to watch TV with me at night? After a long day, it's really tempting. And I'm still going to watch TV after dinner, but before bed and in the evenings like, you know, from 8:30 onwards, I'm going to start reading. There are so many incredible books that I still have my bookshelf, that I haven't read yet, really inspiring books, you know, story is, it doesn't need to be a business book of personal development, books can be anything. Just haven't time for you before bed, really beautiful. Plus, you'll notice a shift the next morning, you'll actually better sleep, and you'll wake up feeling better. And then, you'll wake up earlier and it should
Kind of that domino effect of personal development doing good things for yourself and the last point of my challenge is create an accountability chart and keep track of your progress every 30 days. I love going to count ability chart. If you guys have done my morning routine program, then you'll know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, I'll put the link in the show notes right here. I just have an online course for my morning routine, and there is an accountability chart in there that you can print out. If you don't have the morning routine, course, that's totally fine too. I'll give you a very brief breakdown of. What an accountability chart is essentially have a piece of paper and you draw out little boxes. Next, to each day in that month, and you write the day, you right, you can't drive the box and you have a good heart and you take off the things that you want to do every day in that month or whatever time you're doing your accountability chart for. So I'll have
My accountability chart with the other days in the whole month and I'll have morning routine with a little box to check off, then I'll have meditation box to check off my steps box to check off, and then I have kind of a whole chart like that and I fill it in the next morning. So I in the morning. I'll fill it in for the day before because I'll know exactly what the results were. So that is so big and that is a great way to actually see progress because you see where you started and you see when you fell off and you see where he went back on, and you'll feel really great about it. So I hope you guys enjoyed this little Shore episode. I'm sorry to make a quick but I have to go make dinner. Life is crazy right now and I have some really exciting guest episodes coming up soon, so stay tuned. And I hope you guys have an amazing start of your June. This is an exciting time, you can completely reinvent yourself in 30 days. You can really really move the needle to, you know, creating a better life for yourself.
And it's all on you. So remember that, okay, I guess.
