Lots of people equate their glow-up journeys to external things like beauty and skincare. And while these things do matter, there’s more to it.

To me, glowing up is about reinventing yourself. It’s about becoming a better version of yourself and taking a holistic approach to do so. So not only focusing on what’s on the outside, but what’s on the inside, too.

And it’s not a process that happens overnight. But if it’s something that you’d like to get a jumpstart on, here’s a challenge on glowing up in 30 days.

45 Glow Up Journal Prompts to Reinvent Yourself

These journal prompts have been broken out into 3 categories:

  • Self Reflecting and Awareness
  • Visualizing Your Transformation
  • Holding Yourself Accountable

Self-Reflecting and Awareness

Sometimes we jump into bettering ourselves without identifying our end goal. All we know is that we want to be better. But what exactly does that mean?

Does that mean you want to become the dream version of yourself? Or does it mean that you will focus more on your fitness and wellness?

These prompts can help you gain clarity.
