Morning routines are crucial if you’re attempting to become “that girl”. 

Waking up early will give you extra time within the day to do things for you, which otherwise you wouldn’t have had if you’d have stayed sleeping in bed. 

They say from the moment your alarm goes off, you’re to get out of bed straight away (so, stop repressing the snooze button!!).

Test it for a week and try waking up an hour earlier than you usually would. Use that hour to do things for you, such as baking breakfast, putting makeup on, making your bed or even reading your favourite book.

Journaling can help you organise and achieve the small goals you’ve set for yourself. It’s simply writing down your thoughts to understand them more clearly and if you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal can be a great idea.

If you don’t feel like journaling is for you, why not spend five minutes in the morning, and 5 minutes in the evening just doodling down some notes of gratitude and reflecting on the day? Then you don’t have to feel like an artist and are still taking care of yourself.

There’s nothing wrong with trying to improve your life with healthy habits, but the popular Tiktok trend has given girls an idealistic life which isn’t the everyday reality. These girls may look like they have the picture perfect life, but this most likely ISN’T the case. They don’t bother writing, or even videoing the bad times, which can allude to the idea that they never have any. Seriously, we can’t think of one person who hasn’t had bumps in the road and lows in life – it’s natural!

Being a girl in the day and age of social media, it can be super difficult to not compare your life to anyone else’s and this is the perfect example of where it can be an issue. If you give yourself these unrealistic expectations of being “that girl”, you’re going to get down when you don’t achieve it. 

Within this guide, we’ve taken the stand that you don’t have to be the skinniest, healthiest, 4am morning girl to smash this trend. We want to focus on healthy habits so you can choose to become a better version of yourself, because you’re already amazing
