I often call my friends for no particular reason.

I usually say: 'I am just callin to check in to see if you are doing ok'

Does that sound odd and if yes what would be correct/alternative phrase

    You've combined two different sentences in one.
    "I'm just calling to check in."
    "I'm just calling to see if you're okay."

    "Checking in" is a lot more comprehensive than "to see if you're okay." I may be checking in to let you know where I am. I may be checking in to find out what you are doing.

    Yes, but you also don't need "enough". :)

    Even better, keep "enough" and omit "self-explanatory".
