June 2020 Challenges

With regards to my May challenges – May was a good month:

  1. Health
    • sun salutations – Y
    • glass of water morning and evening at least – Y
    • run 3 x a week – N
  2. Self
    • meditation – Y
    • French – Y
  3. Wealth
    • online business course – Y
  4. Social
    • keep practising Letting It Go – Y

Other than not running as often as possible – due to logistical reasons including broken child bicycles – my daily rhythm is mostly in tact. Give or take a day here and there – I meditate regularly, drink water (which is however getting more difficult as the weather grows cooler), and do my stretching.

French has developed a competitive edge and I am now pushed by my young daughters to become number 1 on the Duolingo board in my category! So right there is my motivation – a role model and external pressure!

I am working on letting more stuff go and it is in the forefront of my mind a lot of the time, which I see as progress.

And regarding my online business course…

I completed all 7 Getting Started modules – so I am making progress here too.

I am enjoying learning new skills and learning about me every singe day, and the community I have discovered online here is incredible, supportive, positive, open-minded and international. Happiness!

This month – June – I will be working on improving different areas of my life in 4 areas of life: health, wealth, self, and social.

These all support the my chosen creation of a simple and beautiful life, based on those basic principles of Minimalism:

  1. Health
    • Sun salutations – health
    • Glass of water morning and evening at least – health
    • Run 2 x a week
  2. Self
    • Meditation – spirituality
    • French – 15 minutes
    • Blinkist – 1 book a day
  3. Wealth
    • Launch my own digital business!
  4. Social
    • Make some new connections and contact some old


Sun Salutations – daily

Water – daily

Run – love it


Online business – Thanks in large part to covid-19 smashing one of our businesses and leaving us income-free there, I have now had the necessary kick to set about and create a new career. I used the covid-19 pause to start studying about business in the digital world. Which is something I have been wanting to do for ages anyway. If this virus has taught us one thing already on a personal level, it is the courage to try, now, because why not. I am loving the journey so far. Watch this space!


Meditation – daily. With gratitude to my accountability women

French – tous les jours (daily) – merci Duolingo

Blinkist – I commit to reading 1 book a day – Blinkist


Connect – Lockdown has eased up a little. We are now on Level 3 which means more people are allowed to return to work, alcohol is legally on sale again, and we are permitted exercise at any time of the day. Curfew is still 8pm to 5am.

It is now easier to meet up with existing friends outdoors, which is wonderful. I have still not seen my parents since the start of lockdown in March as they are in their 80’s and as such high risk for Covid-19.

I have also reached out to my new digital community – like-minded people from all over the world. And it is a joy, and eye opener and a tonic!

This month I shall continue to connect with my old peeps and make new connections online.
