How to do the glow up Challenge
To follow this glow-up challenge and actually get good results with it, you need to establish some good habits in your daily routine.
You need to get out of your comfort zone and get into a new glow up routine. Make these new habits a part of your every-day life and apply them consistently every single day.
Stay consistent even on those days you feel like giving up. Focus on your ultimate goal and think about how you will feel after you manage to complete the challenge!
To find motivation and stay consistent until the end, I suggest creating a vision board! Include pictures that inspire you, quotes for motivation, and everything about who you would like to be, and what you would like your ideal life and world to look like.
As I mentioned before all you have to do is incorporate some new “healthier” habits into your daily routine for the next month. The first week can be really difficult, beyond that, every day that passes will be in your favor. And in the end these new habits will eventually glow up your life. Here’s how:
How do you get a 30 Day Glow Up
So here’s what you need to do for the next 30 days, to shine inside – out:
Drink 2L of water daily
It’s easier if you set the 8 glasses goal! 3 in the morning, 2 during lunch break and another 3 in the evening!
Exercise for at least 20 minutes
Find 20 minutes in your day and exercise! It can be the morning before work or in the night. It doesn’t matter. All that matters is to move your body and wake up every sleeping muscle in it!
Get some sun for 15 minutes
Get out in the sun for at least 15 minutes every day! Your mood will improve but you’ll also collect D vitamin!
Wash and moisturize your face 2 times daily
Morning and evening wet your face and apply cleanser in circular motions with your fingertips! Rinse, tone and of course moisturize! Never skip your skincare routine especially before bedtime! And no need to say: ALWAYS remove your makeup before going to sleep!
Mild – Scrub your face and body once a day
Exfoliation helps remove all dead skin cells, so it’s really beneficial for brightening the skin and enhancing your glow up. Remember to always moisturize after exfoliation.
Hair care 2 times a week (mask on for at least 20 minutes!)
Give your hair some love and attention. Get into a consistent hair care routine suitable for your hair type will really help you grow long, healthy hair. Make sure you are letting your hair breathe by restricting heat use and letting it air-dry and avoiding straighteners and curling irons.
Engage in an outdoor activity for half an hour a day (gardening, cycling, sports, house – chores etc)
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only half of adults get the physical activity they need to help reduce and prevent chronic diseases, where the annual health care costs associated with inadequate physical activity sum up to 117 billion!
Outdoor physical activity will boost endorphins and will help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression! Outdoor activities help increasing self-esteem, self-confidence, and creativity as well as sharper thinking. Go for it!
Sleep for at least 8 hours daily – Go to bed before eleven o clock every night
Get an average of 8 hours sleep per night to allow your body and mind to recharge. Getting enough sleep makes you feel refreshed and alert while it helps the body to remain healthy. To add to this, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, states that ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.
Enjoy a hot bath/shower every night
Hot baths allow for immediate stress relief and muscle relaxation. Heat will get your blood moving which is great for circulation while you‘ll enjoy better sleep.
Replace carbs with vegetables for at least one meal (preferably dinner)
It’s time for veggies my friend! So many options to choose from: Cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, carrots, peppers, celery, kale, cabbage, lettuce and mushrooms are just a few ideas. Making the swaps will not only help you lose weight but can also increase the nutrient content including antioxidants.
Eat 3 portions of different fruits every day
Fruits are an excellent source of essential vitamins, and they are high in fiber. Fruits also provide a wide range of health-boosting antioxidants, including flavonoids. A variety of fruits and vegetables is absolutely vital to support your body and improve your health.
Pick a self – care day once a week and do everything that relaxes you
It is important to have a day of the week dedicated to you. A day where you can relax, do anything that makes you feel good and reprogram your soul, mind and body. I choose Sundays for self-care!
Read your favorite book for at least 20 minutes every night
20 minutes of reading every day can do wonders for your memory and health. Your IQ is boosted, your creativity is developed, and you become more knowledgeable, self-confident, and interesting as a person. Invest in yourself. Make time to read.
Apply the no Wi-Fi hour daily. Take advantage of this time to spend quality time with family
Apply this new rule at home. For one hour the Wi-Fi remains off for the family to actually communicate and bond. The best time to do this is could be during dinner time. Where the whole family is gathered and everybody enjoys their meal, discuss what happened during the day and share thoughts and feelings with each other.
Every night before sleep take 10 minutes to journal about all good things that happened on that day
Every night, before bed, take out your journal and simply begin to write out about important things that you experienced that day. Bullet journal about your thoughts, feelings, next day’s tasks, goals. It’s really up to you but for sure journaling will clear your mind, help you brainstorm and sleep better
