Lately because of quarantine, everyone's started to get obsessed with the idea of glowing up. In the beginning I felt exactly the same way, but since I'm a really inconsistent person I couldn't keep up with any of it.

I decided on doing a 7 day glow up with me challenge because I need some way to hold myself to the glow up promises I'm making. And by 'glow up,' I don't exactly mean 'looking better.' I mean making my life better by becoming healthier.

This article will be about a mile long if I don't stop rambling, so let's get straight into it.

The Promises

My goals:

1. Exercise every morning

(For this I'm going to do Chloe Ting and Emi Wong's workouts, with Emi Wong's cardio on weekends.)

2. Study (languages) daily

(This will mostly be in regards to languages but I want improve in as many areas as possible in the next couple of days so I won't limit this.)

3. Read for about 30 minutes a day

(I recommend doing this if you have a lot of books to finish!)

4. Start to follow a decent sleep schedule

(Because without it I won't have any energy for the rest of the schedule.)

If you want to follow along with my glow up with me (it doesn't matter if you start it after I've finished it!) then think about what your goals are, how you want to improve, and how you can get there.

Let's glow up together!

Ideas for goals:

(Excluding the ones I've already mentioned.)

  • Studying/ revision for a set time a week
  • Drinking more water
  • Developing new hobbies
  • Tidying up or getting organised
  • Improving skin (drinking water is important for this!)
  • Eating more fruit
  • Cutting out sugar
  • Digital detox

The Plan

Obviously it can be hard to keep to the promises, which is why planning is a good idea. Think about when you have time to do things or when you're most likely to commit to your goals.

Another thing you can do is write a log to keep track of your efforts (sort of like what I'm doing now) and hold yourself accountable if you don't feel like doing your workout or your studying or whatever your goal is.

Tomorrow I'll (hopefully) be updating about how my first day went.

If I, one of the most inconsistent human beings to exist, can do this, then so can you!

Thanks for reading and I hope this article can motivate you!

Love, Blue
