Are you looking for ways to romanticise your life? Let me walk you through what I do.
Romanticising my life has really helped me get through a pretty difficult year, and has overall helped me change my mind set about the mundane tasks that we all do, but don’t really think about.
If you don’t know how to start with romanticising your life, it can be pretty overwhelming or may have you thinking that you don’t have the right ‘aesthetic’, but that isn’t true at all! It’s about changing your mindset and your outlook on life, making yourself the main character, and living the life you want to lead. Here I’ll give you some tips to romanticise your life.
I’ve found romanticising my life to be a very free and fulfilling experience. Through it, I’ve learnt to appreciate the little things more, and enjoy nature a lot more as I didn’t realise that so much of my happiness comes from being around nature.
But we all have to start somewhere. And of course, it is about finding what works for you, but I knew when I first started romanticising my life I had no idea where to start or what to do, so these are just a handful of ways I’ve been romanticising my life for the past few months, and how they have helped me overall.
Here are some ways you can start to romanticise your life.
Taking time to make the bed properly in the morning.
I work from home most days, and many of you may also be working at home during this time. I’ve found that taking the time to properly make my bed and not just throw everything on it really helps set the tone for the day. Sure, it takes a little bit more time, but it makes me feel much more productive and put together.
I’m the type of person who is likely to get more things done if I’m really feeling the outfit that I’m wearing. I have absolutely no idea why, but dressing nicely really seems to motivate me, so I do it! If you don’t have much interest in fashion, then this may not be for you, but for me taking time to plan out my outfit in my head the night more and getting dressed in the morning really makes me happy. I’m likely to get things done more, and plus I’m not going out as much right now due to the pandemic, so somebody has to see these cute outfits, even if its just me and my cats!
Having a phone free breakfast
I’m definitely guilty of spending the majority of my morning routine scrolling on my phone, and it’s a habit that I’m trying to get out of. What I’ve started to implement is having a phone free breakfast. Instead, I’ll put on the radio or a playlist in the kitchen and either read a little extract of a book, or just sit there with my thoughts and think about what I want to do with my day. I find it to be a much calmer way of waking myself up, and for someone who isn’t a morning person, this really helps to activate my brain!
Me and my boyfriend have started getting deliveries from The Modern Milkman. We get some eggs, bread, and orange juice delivered every saturday and we make sure to sit down together and eat breakfast as a little treat every weekend. We’ve only been doing this for a couple of weeks but I absolutely love it and it is my favourite part of the week.
Do at least one of your favourite things every day
Taking time for yourself and your hobbies is super important. I’m very introverted and I value time on my own and space to do my own thing. I feel the most inspired when I’m by myself, so every day I will take a little time to do something that I love or want to do. It can be something really small like going to get fresh flowers and arranging them in a vase, to taking an hour to read a book I’ve been loving… Whatever you want to do, make sure you are taking some time to actually do it!
And those are just a few ways that I’ve implemented romanticising my life. I’m always experimenting and trying out new things, and there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’, you have to do what YOU love in order for it to be valuable!
