That Girl habits
Table of Contents
Ever since I tried to become that girl, I have been experimenting with different habits and seeing what I need the most in my life right now. If you don’t know who that girl is, she is basically a girl that has her life together and is flourishing in every aspect of her life.
Habits are automatic behaviors or routines that we develop over time through repeated actions. They are actions or patterns that become ingrained in our daily lives and are often performed without much conscious thought. Habits can be both beneficial and detrimental, depending on whether they promote positive or negative behaviors.
They are important because they promote efficiency, consistency, productivity, behavioral change, stress reduction, health, and long-term success.
In this post, I will be sharing that Girl habits that changed my life. I’m not going to mention the obvious ones like exercising regularly or staying hydrated because I feel like we all know those are important and I have already spoken about that in my morning routine.
These that Girl Habits I’m about to share with you are habits that made me see a significant difference in my life. Thanks to these habits, I’m currently happy with where I am in life and I’m so grateful to myself for being consistent with them.
Let’s get into it
That girl habits you need to Try
Waking up early
I was never a morning person but ever since I started waking up earlier, I noticed a significant difference in my life. I was able to get much more done in a day and still have time to enjoy a few episodes of K-drama or go out. If you’ve been trying to become a morning person but don’t know how to properly transition, here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Start going to bed early
- If you normally wake up around 10 am and you want to start waking up by 8 am, start by waking up 30 mins earlier than you normally do that is by 9:30 am, and then once you are used to waking up at that time, keep reducing it till you have achieved your dream wake up time
- Always have something you are looking forward to the next day
- Keep your phone across your room so that you will have to leave your bed to switch off the alarm
These tips helped me so much to become a morning person and I’m sure they will be able to help you as well.
Reducing my screen time
As you’re reading this, take a look at your screen time. Are you proud of it? I realized that I was spending on average about 6 hours daily on my phone and I wasn’t proud of that. That’s time I could spend learning a new skill, reading a book, or even writing. I deleted some social media apps I was spending so much time mindlessly scrolling on like Twitter and then set a daily limit for the other apps and that has helped a lot.
Another thing that helped me reduce my screen time was not using my phone the first few hours after I woke up and the last hour before bed. My screen time now averages about 4 hours daily and I’m glad it has reduced. Now I use that time for something more productive.
Regular health checkups
Health is wealth and as I am getting older, I have been more conscious about my health. I now get a yearly full body checkup, quarterly eyes and dental checkups and I always go to the doctor whenever I’m not feeling good instead of self-diagnosing myself. I have also been researching for a good gynecologist because as a lady, you need to make sure everything is fine down there.
Learning time management
Time is the most valuable asset we have and unfortunately, it is very limited. Knowing how to use your time wisely is important for living a fulfilling life. When I was still a student, time management helped me get through the semester without much stress because I had everything planned. From my morning routine to my study routine down to how I plan on using my free time.
Now as a full-time blogger (before I get a job), I learned the best way to manage my time is by batching tasks. I do all my keyword research and content planning on one day, creating products on another and so much more. This has helped me to achieve all the goals that I set at the beginning of each month during my monthly reset routine
Just because I’ve graduated doesn’t mean I am done learning. Thanks to my blog, I have learned how to do so many things like constructing a blog post, graphic design, SEO, and much more. I am currently learning video editing and how to use Lightroom because I am planning on starting to create content for Instagram and TikTok. One place I always go to when I want to learn something, especially the basics is YouTube. YouTube is such a goldmine and it’s free.
Becoming more spiritual
Getting closer to God has been one of the best decisions I’ve made this year. I have found so much inner peace and it’s amazing seeing all your prayers coming to light. I have recently been reading and learning more about my religion and it’s something I plan on continuing.
I love talking about skincare and skincare products and as you can see most of my content are now directed towards that. Our skin is the largest organ we must try our best to take care of. If you want to be 60 and be looking 40, then you have to start taking care of your skin better today. Create a morning and night routine and stick with it.
if you need suggestions, I have posted about the best cleansers, toners, toner pads, moisturizers, vitamin C serums, serums in general and so much more. You should also make sure you’re using sunscreen or a sun stick every single day. This is non-negotiable. Stay consistent and your future self will thank you.
