Let’s talk about how you can “Glow Up” in 2021 from the inside out.
Glowing up it’s when you dedicate a little more time to yourself, focus on improving your wellness, health, and all your surroundings to feel your absolute best. And I’m not talking about only physical transformations, which can be nice, but I’m talking about the internal kind. The glow up that counts happen on the inside.
These are some little goals and habits you can work on throughout the year. It takes practice, patience, and consistency.
Stop comparing yourself
The first step for glowing up is loving your body the way it is. Accepting who you are without comparing with anyone.
Have a mantra for the year
Mantra it’s a word or a sentence that reflects your goals, intentions, aspirations. And truly, anything can be your mantra. Some examples are:
“I will appreciate more and complain less.”
“I will embrace the present moment.”
“I will not judge, not even myself.”
“I will be thankful for everything.”
Say no to things that don’t make you happy
Obviously, sometimes we have to do things we don’t want to do, but when possible decline what you don’t enjoy. Life is too short to spend time doing things you hate.
Go to bed early and wake up early (if possible)
Establishing a healthy sleep routine is so important for your wellbeing.
Less is more
Appreciate what you have now instead of always looking for the next purchase. Your bank account will thank you for that.
Celebrate your small accomplishments
Remember that our small wins are just as important as big wins and should be celebrated too.
Meditate every day
Meditation is so good for both your mental and physical health. If you’re still learning, try a guided meditation, you find lots of them for free on apps or Youtube.
Say bye to toxic people
Be around or follow people who are uplifting and that you can learn from them. Cut that person that is always complaining, criticizing, or taking without giving anything back.
Apologize when you’re wrong
Life is too short for dramas. If you know you’re wrong, apologize. The other person will appreciate it and be able to move on more easily.
Be very intentional about what you buy and what you keep in your home. Donate or sell what you no longer use.
Practice gratitude daily
Taking time to appreciate all the good things in your life is so important to improve your mood and happiness.
We all know the major effects overall on our skin health and health in general. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
Learn to stretch or do yoga regularly
Yoga and stretching is a great way to release any stresses or tensions from the day. Exercising helps you feel better and healthier because of the improved blood flow to your brain.
Be there for your friends and family when they need you
Be there for your friends and loved ones when they’re going through a hard time. Always have their back. Express gratitude towards them. We all need this more than ever.
Give out compliments often
Spread kindness and positivity. You might make someone’s day.
Spend time on your hobbies
Hobbies are so important and can be a great source of relaxation and enjoyment.
Read at least one book every month.
It’s a great way to expand your knowledge for a mental glow up.
Eat foods that nourish your body
If you want a glow up, eating balanced meals that nourish your body is key. It’s about eating food that makes you feel good and helps you to glow from the inside out.
Schedule regular self-care time
To take the best possible care of your health, aim to make self-care become part of your daily routine.
Ask for help when you need it.
Sometimes we feel like we have to figure it all out ourselves, but it’s ok to ask for help when we need it.
Learn a new skill/hobby
Learn something you’ve always wanted to. Join a class, do an online course, or simply use YouTube.
I hope you got some inspiration for ways to glow up every aspect of your life. I wish you a healthy and happy 2021 😊
