Glow Up. We’ve all heard the term before. It basically means that you looked better than you did before.
I’ll be the first person to say that 2020 stressed me out. 2020 had a lot of life changes that I either was not prepared for or had to make in a haste instead of having time to think through everything.
A lot of people want their glow up to be physical-changing hair, being tan, new outfits, etc.
However, a glow up doesn’t have to be physical. It can be mental or spiritual, too.
- Think about what you want to improve | What you want to change about yourself and why. Are you doing it for yourself or other people? If you’re doing it for other people any changes you make will not last.
- Consider how you can make these changes | If it’s spiritual, reading devotionals and the Bible are helpful. I’m considering this one for the new year. I’ve also heard really good things about this one. If you want to take notes directly in your bible, this is a great option. If it’s physical, finding a gym or creating a flexible workout and nutrition plan is a great place to start.
- Ask someone to help hold you accountable |People are more likely to be successful when they have someone to help them and hold them accountable. Whether it’s a daily check-in or they start doing it with you.
- Remember change takes time | Anything worth having takes time. If we have the expectation that change will happen overnight, people drop their goals. Keep going and have the expectation that it takes longer than a few weeks.
- Be reasonable | When you make a goal for your glow up, don’t make the expectation of “lose 50 pounds in 3 months”. That’s not reasonable or healthy. But if you made it “lose 10 pounds in 3 months”, that is healthy and reasonable.
Are you planning a glow up for this year?
