How Can You Glow Up Naturally – Mental edition

A true glow up starts from within. You can rock all the top-notch makeup products in the world, but nothing will ever outshine a healthy, happy, and nurtured mind. This Glow Up Blueprint provides 11 actionable mental glow up tips that will seriously upgrade your self-love game and skyrocket your confidence!

1. Learn to see the silver linings in dark clouds.

This is perhaps one of the best things that you can do to glow up mentally. Life will throw lemons at you again and again. It is up to you whether you squeeze them to make yourself a lemonade or keep crying over hard times.

You need to understand that every challenge that life throws at you is making you strong. And that there’s some greater good behind these hardships which you are not able to understand right now.

Once you start accepting the obstacles as a way to level up, you will feel at peace with yourself.

2. Meditate regularly, even if you don’t know how to

Meditation works like magic. It relieves your stress and makes you feel happy. Regular meditation makes you strong mentally.

I know meditating can be a bit frustrating in the beginning. You may find it impossible to focus on absolutely nothing for those few minutes.

But gradually, you will learn the art of meditation.

For me, waking up early, at around 6 on summer days, works perfectly for meditation. The chirping of birds and the cool breeze help me concentrate and meditate peacefully. 

You can also try meditating by focusing all your attention on the flick of a lit candle.

3. Mingle with optimistic people.

Stop hanging around with people who always speak negative stuff. Their negative mindset indirectly affects your aura, and you definitely want that!

Surround yourself with positive people. Talk to those who look at the brighter aspect of things. Avoid people who always keep on cribbing. 

Seek motivation from individuals who stay positive even during the darkest phase of their lives. 

4. Prioritize yourself

How to Glow Up Naturally To Unveil The Unstoppable YOU

Stop carrying the burden of the world on your shoulders, babe!

And love yourself first. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You deserve your love the most. Be your own favorite.

There’s nothing selfish in prioritizing your own happiness, peace and health first. You will only be able to help others out when you are at your best.

5. Learn to be grateful.

Practice gratitude. When you are thankful for the little things in your life, you actually start receiving bigger blessings eventually.

I have seen and felt nothing work more than being grateful for the things you have. And your mind never gets surrounded by dullness, even in bleak times.

Gratitude is the key that opens up doors to opportunities you did not even know existed.

6. Practice affirmations regularly.

This is me practising 5×55 method of manifestation.

Affirmations make you strong, confident and self-sufficient. Start practicing affirmations every day. This will heal your past trauma and fill your heart with satisfaction.

You will remain unaffected by what others think about you. And even in hard times, affirmations will help you keep going.

Here are a few affirmations that work magically for me:

  • I am more than enough than I need to be.
  • I am stronger, powerful and supremely brave.
  • I am beautiful. Boys kiss the ground I walk on.
  • I choose peace because that’s my birthright.
  • I attract true love like a magnet. There’s no other way around it!
  • Only good things await me.

7. Start journaling.

Journaling, when done right, feels therapeutic.

Nothing fancy. Just grab a diary or old, unused notebook and start journaling. Jot down anything that is disturbing you. Express everything that you want to discuss but have no one to talk to.

Pour your heart out on those pages. Don’t hold yourself back. Stop worrying about grammar, spelling and handwriting.

Journal twice every day, once in the morning and once just before hitting the bed. Your heart and mind will feel so light!

8. Read a few pages every day.

How to Glow Up Naturally To Unveil The Unstoppable YOU

Reading books can actually help your mind grow in ways you can’t even imagine! They actually do enhance your mental strength. Even if you are not an avid reader, get into the habit of reading.

Start small with just 2 pages every day, and then increase your count as you get fond of feeding your mind with the right thoughts and ideas.

9. Avoid the negative talks inside your mind.

How to Glow Up Naturally To Unveil The Unstoppable YOU

Pay attention to the constant negative talks that go inside your mind 24×7. Silence them like anything. Be mindful and wary of pessimistic thoughts, and avoid them as much as you can.

Here’s a hack that always works for me – whenever you find yourself indulging in negative self-talk, try to replace that one negative thought with 3 positive ideas. 

This will break your streak of negativity and also fill your heart with optimism.

10. Do something that you love every day.

How to Glow Up Naturally To Unveil The Unstoppable YOU

For a complete mental glow-up, it is important to spend a chunk of your day doing something that you absolutely love. 

Now, this can be anything- soaking in the morning sunshine in silence, dancing, listening to music, cooking, reading, painting, etc. 

When you dedicate a part of your daily life to the thing that you love doing, it makes you truly happy from within. 

11. Take a digital detox once every two weeks.

Digitization has become an inseparable part of our lives. But to regain that mental peace, you need a digital detox.

Go anti-digital for at least twice a week.

Suppose you are going anti-digital for a total of 10 hours a week. In those 10 hours, make sure you do not use your smartphone, laptop, desktop, iPad, headphones, or any other digital device. Use this digital detox to look around and live life fully offline.

Choose the traditional way of life, and you will be glad that you made the temporary switch.

During a digital detox, you can sleep in, spend time with loved ones, read books, meditate, work out or do anything you love, except for going digital.
