That girl routine: How to finally be that girl in 2022
It’s never too late to become that girl. That girl is basically a trend that went viral on social media (TikTok especially) of what your life will look like if you get it together and focus on yourself. I honestly think it’s a great trend because it allows you to focus on things that truly matter and put yourselves first.
However, a lot of that girl routines I have seen are quite unhealthy because they romanticize waking up very early (I’m talking about 4 am), exercising a lot, and always working. It doesn’t have to be like that so I am here to help.
In today’s post, I will be sharing a healthy that girl morning routine, that girl night routine, and a few more tips on how to be that girl.
That girl’s realistic morning routine
Wake up early
First of all, you don’t need to start your day at 4 am. It’s completely unnecessary. What’s more important is that you should try and be waking up at the same time daily.
If you’re still in school like me, you can start your day by 5:30 am or 6:00 am. I personally start mine by 5:30 am because I like to take things slow and I dislike rushing in the morning.
Make your bed
Making your bed in the morning just helps a lot because you just get it done and do not have to worry about it again.
It also gives you a sense of accomplishment because you just woke up and you have gotten something done already, woohoo.
This probably has to be the most difficult part of my morning routine but it’s necessary. You have to move your body in some way and exercising is the way to go or yoga. You don’t need to exercise daily but try and do so 2-3 times a week. I really enjoy skipping so I do that a lot and it’s a really great way to get your whole body shaking and moving.
Hop into the shower and get yourself squeaky clean. I have a shower routine coming up soon but before you get that, here are my top body care product picks for you. A lot of good stuff in that post so make sure you check it out.
My favorite part of my morning routine. I find applying skincare products to be so therapeutic. My skincare routine is very minimal. All I do is cleanse, tone, serum, moisturize, and sunscreen. You cannot forget that sunscreen.
There are so many great skincare brands with affordable products but my top 3, for now, are Cerave, the ordinary, and good molecules. Their products actually work and the prices are great which makes it great for students.
If you love to apply makeup, please go ahead and do so. I want to learn how to properly apply makeup this year so let’s hope it goes well. So far, all I do is apply a compact powder, lipgloss, mascara because my lashes are long thanks to this homemade lash serum and sometimes liner when I feel like it. Less is more when it comes to skincare and makeup.
Go about your day
Do what you have to do and have fun while at it. Make sure you take breaks to avoid burning out.
If you want to be really productive, make a to-do list and write down things you need to get done for the day. Assign the amount of time you want to spend on each task and you will be shocked at home productive you will be. This is the Pomodoro planner I love to use when I’m studying, working, or doing any important task. It just makes it easier to break down big tasks into smaller ones.
That girl night routine
It’s evening time and you’re done for the day now it’s time for your nighttime routine
You probably had a busy day this is the time to just unwind. Everyone has their own way of unwinding so you probably have yours. Do that. My favorite way of unwinding is reading a few pages of a book or just lying on the bed listening to a podcast. It’s always nice and peaceful.
Some prefer to work out in the evening than in the morning so if you’re one of those people, time to work out. Move your body and stay in shape. Remember, you’re doing this for yourself, and trust me, your future self will thank you for that.
I love a warm shower at the end of the day to wash away all the sweat and stress. Take your time and do your shower routine.
Never sleep with makeup on. Take your time and do your skincare routine to maintain that glow. My nighttime skincare routine is also very minimal, all I do is double cleanse, tone, serum, retinol, eye cream and moisturize.
Do other things
If you have any unfinished work, use this time to do that. If you’re still a student, try and study every night before bed. I have so many posts to help you in my college life blog section but here are a few to read now

Once you’re done with what you have to do, go to bed girl. I always try and go to be before 11:30 pm. this allows me to be able to get a good night’s sleep. You should also do the same.
As you can see, that girl routine is one of the easiest and healthiest routines to form. All that really matters is that you’re doing what you love and consistently. Consistency is very important because, without it, we won’t get the results we want.
