“Life does not get better with CHANCE, it gets better with CHANGE.”
Every person wants to experience the ultimate transformation in their lives that will make them a better version of themselves. It could be physical, mental, spiritual, financial, or social transformation. Or perhaps a change in career or personal interests. Every transformation you get leads to glowing up.
The process of transformation and glowing up is not easy. You have to commit a lot to discipline, self-love, self acceptance, and consistency. And not just that, knowing where to start and what to do is usually the hardest part.
In this blog, we will show you 8 simple steps to glowing up and transforming your life.
Know your priorities
Knowing your priorities will give you a clearer picture of what your goals and responsibilities are. This will help you divide your main priorities from your interests and hobbies for proper time management.
You cannot always work hard, you need time to enjoy. At the same time, you cannot always enjoy, focus on your goals too.
Once you identify your goals and priorities, have proper goal-setting and commit to it. Always remember that change starts with you, but it doesn’t start until you do.
Create your own happiness
We are all capable of creating our own happiness. However, there are two major reasons that hinder you from achieving this: too much expectations and giving your all.
Expectations are good because they set high standards, but expecting too much can lead to disappointment. What to do? Always expect for the best and be ready for the worst. There’s no such thing as 100% perfection. Challenges and struggles will come because these will make you stronger and wiser.
Giving is also good. But don’t do it too much and too often because you may never have something left to give to yourself. Learn to love yourself better because you are the foundation of everything. You cannot give much more than you have.
Be bold, yet wise
Everything you’ve ever wanted is sitting on the other side of fear. If you truly want to transform your life, you need to face your fears. And that involves being brave enough to take risks and having pure confidence in your potentials.
But that’s not all. You must also be wise to choose the healthy challenges from the bad ones. Take the path of whichever will make you a better person, not the worst.
Commit more to health and wellness
Health is the utmost wealth. Take care of your mind and body because it’s the only place that you have to live in. You’ll never achieve the full glow with an unhealthy mind and body.
Pay attention to the 8 dimensions of wellness in order to create a life you’ll love. Eat healthy, have proper sleep, establish an extraordinarily healthy lifestyle, stay productive, and commit to fitness.
Nourish your mind and soul
Nourish your mind and soul like you would your body — the three cannot survive with junk food.
Eating healthy food nourishes the body, welcoming positive thoughts nourishes the mind, while meditating nourishes the soul.
Feel free to disconnect from toxic people/energy to protect your inner peace. Practice gratitude every day to remind yourself how blessed you are, and always be kinder to your own self.
Always reconnect with yourself
You might be busy or feeling worried lately. Busy about managing your career, social, and family life.
Worried about whether you’re doing the right thing or if you’re taking good care of the people you love.
But how about checking yourself? You should have your frequent ‘me-time’ to do the things you love and to enjoy more serenity and peace alone.
Don’t feel guilty about taking some time off from work, buying something you like, treating yourself on a vacation, or having a massage to reconnect with yourself. Your life only gets better when you invest and work on yourself, then the rest will follow.
Have a peaceful relationship with money
Money is supposed to be just an instrument to support our needs and wants. However, most people cling onto it too much that they forget to value other things that are more important than money. As well as things that money cannot buy, like bringing back time.
To avoid this, have a healthy relationship with money by focusing more on the results instead of the earnings.
Someone asked you a favor? Don’t expect something in return. Be generous, but know your priorities. Learn to save first before spending. Work hard, yet balance your time with your family. Because if you don’t do this, your financial situation won’t improve and money will take over your life.
Glow up your home
Your house says a lot about your personality. Most people want colorful wall paintings, while some prefer the minimalist style. But if you feel like repainting your entire house, changing the decors, or buying a new furniture, then go ahead. Doing so can make you feel more fulfilled, relaxed, or productive.
Don’t forget to declutter from time to time and set your weekly cleaning schedule. Cleaning your space is also cleaning your mind. You can also invest in organic home fragrances or essential oils to make your home look lovely and smell luxurious. A clean home is a happy home.
