Our morning routines have the power to change the way we show up in our day – and going for a walk with the intention to get your mindset in line with how you want to show up and feel throughout the day is incredible.
I heard about the hot girl walk viral trend – and I thought, what a fun concept for getting yourself into a mode where you’re feeling good. It’s not about a superficial feeling of “being hot”, it’s about embodying a mindset of feeling confident and showing up like that.
This roundup is filled with intentional, mindful podcasts that will get you in a good mood and make you feel powerful, independent, and hopefully a little happier.
And by the way, you don’t need to be a girl to enjoy these podcasts – it’s just a fun term, so don’t take it too seriously! ;)
What are Hot Girl Walks™?
“Hot girl walks” were coined by Mia Lind from @exactlyliketheothergirls on TikTok. According to Lind, on a “hot girl walk”, you’re only able to think about three things:
Things you’re grateful for
Your goals and how you’re going to achieve them
How hot you are
The idea behind a hot girl walk is to focus on the good things in life, to set your day up for success.
While I believe the hot girl walk is supposed to be 10k steps, I really think of this walk as a way to get into a good mindset, no matter how much time you have to dedicate.
And to just intentionally use your walk time to think positively, feel good, and think about what you want your day and life to feel like. Hotties take care of themselves, right? ;)
Here are some hot girl walk podcasts to start your day with
