Going back to school means that you would be seeing your friends again, some of your crushes, and the whole student body. While some may not care at all, how you present yourself to the campus will have an effect on how you view yourself.

But do you still need a glow-up? 

Absolutely! As long as you are doing it to feel good for yourself, there is no shame in trying to feel and look your best. After all, this is considered as another form of self-care.

1. Internal well-being

You are what you consume and that will always ring true. 

It goes without saying that consuming the proper nutrients that your body needs will give you a coveted glow to the skin, a nice physique, and overall good cognitive health. If you have watched documentaries about people who only subsist on fast food, artificial meals, or just want to eat one type of food, you will notice that it shows on the outside. The reason for this is your body needs to have the proper nutrients inside to build how you would look and feel outside. 

Along with consuming unhealthy meals, drinking too many sugary beverages can lead to a handful of health problems like a urinary tract infection, diabetes, and so much more. These conditions can be mild to life-threatening. Aside from your looks and internal health, your cognitive thinking is also affected. Good food that is dense with nutrients can help you achieve more in school as you supply your body with what it needs to function well. 

If you are having problems with consuming healthier alternatives, such as not liking the taste or texture, it is best to prepare your own meals so you can adjust accordingly. There are people who got converted to believe in the power of vegetables after years of avoiding these. And it only took a serving of well-seasoned veggies that they fancy. There are also individuals who hated the mouthfeel of vegetables but once they found the right texture for them, most are now looking forward to a heaping serving of a healthy and balanced meal. 

It goes without saying that what works for others may not necessarily work for you. So it is best to explore other alternatives to achieve your glow up with healthy eating. 

A. A study room’s internal well-being

 If you want an internal makeover for your study area, you should take into consideration the little and invisible things that could affect the space that you have. 

For example, if you have a leaky roof, it is best to remedy it now than waiting for the rain to remind you once again. It can be costly and time-consuming upfront but the long-term benefits are more worth it. 

You need to carefully and thoroughly examine the state of your study area so you can prevent other problems as soon as they arise.

2. Keep your light

There is just something so alluring and approachable with persons who exude lit from within glow that is not only on the superficial level. 

It is a known fact that people who tend to look at the bright side and smile more tend to look better too. One way you can achieve such a happy and light disposition is to always look at the positive sides of every situation. If you were looking forward to attending classes outside your house again but the global crisis has hindered your plans, always remember that it is better to be safe than sorry.

However, we do acknowledge that one individual cannot be happy 24/7 as life is not perfect. Take the time you need to cope, solve, or get over your melancholy and remember that life may not be perfect, but you will still go on. Acknowledging your feelings through healthy coping mechanisms can also assist you in appreciating the positives that will come once the sun has decided to shine down on you again. However, for those who are experiencing chronic negative moods, it is best to consult with a psychologist first.

B. A study area’s light

The source of light inside your study area matters. Having natural daylight whenever you are in video classes can help you look good as the soft light of the sun helps filter out skin texture that may otherwise show on the camera. 

For the times when you are studying at night, the Modern Table Lamp TA1001 and the Task lamp TA1004BK will shine a light on your lessons and assignments whenever you need them.

The two lamps from FlexiSpot are perfect to add in a study area that could otherwise be darker whenever the dark seeps inside the place. Furthermore, having the proper source of light whenever you are studying also assists you in preventing eye strain that could be an outcome of too much or too little illumination as you work hard.

3. The three P’s - Practice Proper Posture

Practicing proper posture even if you are inside the comforts of your own home is actually beneficial for your back-to-school glow-up journey. Individuals with great posture also tend to be viewed positively by their peers as they emanate confidence and power with just standing or sitting straight.

The way you could achieve great posture is through practicing with a stick behind your back. If the lower portion of your body tends to touch the majority of this stick, you need to straighten up to prevent future pains as well.
