Lately there’s been a huge trend on TikTok (click here to follow me on TikTok for more aesthetic lifestyle inspiration) around how to become “that girl” – the girl who wakes up super early, eats healthy, works out a few times a week, and just overall has her life together. So, in today’s post I have a list of some of my best tips on becoming that girl in 2021! This is essentially going to be a full guide on working towards achieving your goals and dreams and being successful in life.
I actually posted a part one of how to become that girl a couple weeks ago, and it’s basically all of my tips on how to create a productive morning routine. I would recommend that you read that part first and then start working on designing a morning routine that works really well for you before getting started on this second part of my becoming “that girl” guide. If you’ve already read that part or just want to jump straight into this one, keep scrolling!

Tips On How To Become “That Girl” In 2021
Start Your Day Early
This is one of the most important tips I can give on how to become that girl, and it’s because starting your day off early just opens the day wide up and makes it so that you have more time available during the absolute best and most productive parts of your day (for most people the most productive time of day is typically early on, like anytime before 2:00ish).
I’m not saying you have to wake up at 5 am every day, but obviously the earlier you can get up the better. Find your sweet spot – for me it’s usually waking up around 7 or 7:30 – and stick to getting up at that time every day, even weekends. Consistency is key here, and getting yourself into a good routine with your sleep and wake up time is important if you want to become that girl in 2021.
This is super crucial because not only does working out help you look your best physically, but even more importantly it helps you feel your best which in turn improves your confidence and life outlook. If you’re interested in learning how to become “that girl” in 2021, then starting a regular workout routine would be a great place to start.
If you’re new to working out and aren’t sure what types of workouts you like yet, I would recommend trying to follow along with different videos on YouTube, or better yet if you can try taking a few classes at different studios in your area just to figure out what you like. Once you know what works best for you, you’re going to be excited about doing it and it will become something you can commit to consistently after you start becoming addicted to how it makes you feel!
Eat Clean + Plant Based
Eating really healthy is so important if you’re trying to become that girl! Clean, healthy plant based foods fuel your body and give it the energy it needs to take you through long days and get a ton of things accomplished. I find that plant based vegan foods are what make me feel the most energetic and ready to take on my day, whereas other types of foods can leave you feeling sluggish and lethargic instead.
Plant based foods naturally just have the lowest fat density and contain more healthy fats, fiber, and other key nutrients that your body thrives on – not to mention fruits and vegetables are some of the easiest things to digest and cause way fewer stomach issues!
Keep Your Space Clean and Clutter Free
If you want to become “that girl”, you need to make sure your room and apartment/home are free of clutter and that you’re keeping everything clean and neat. If you have a super clean and organized space, then you’ll have more mental clarity and a better ability to concentrate on your work and the tasks you have to do that day instead of being distracted by unnecessary clutter!
I love going through my apartment roughly once a season and just getting rid of old stuff I don’t want, like clothes, mail and random papers that pile up, and any other stuff I don’t need anymore. I always try to donate or sell clothes that are in good condition, and anything in my closet that might be stained or ripped I always recycle through a fabric recycling program like For Days! It helps the planet so much and I love that I can get rid of these old clothes and they’ll be turned into something new.
Keep Stress To A Minimum
This one is definitely easier said than done, but if you’re trying to become that girl in 2021 you need to take amazing care of yourself and limit your stress. Take a candlelit bath, do some yoga, have a delicious meal and watch your favorite show, or do whatever feels like self care to you! And while it’s impossible to eliminate 100% of your stress, you can do some really easy things to significantly reduce it.
A small amount of stress is good in a way, because it motivates you to keep working and moving forward in life. But too much is obviously unhealthy and can start to ruin your skin and have all kinds of negative effects on your life. So, try to keep stress management on your mind at all times and take great care of yourself!
Journal Your Thoughts
There are a couple of different journalling methods I recommend using if you want to become that girl in 2021, and the first one is just your basic “planner” style journalling where you keep on top of writing in a day planner – things like your appointments, meetings and school or work related stuff as well as little to do lists if your planner has enough space for that.
The second method would be gratitude journalling, which is basically the act of writing down a couple of things in your life that you’re grateful for every single day. The purpose of this exercise is to improve your mindset, because what we focus on is what we tend to attract more of.
For example, if your day gets off to a bad start, it’s much more likely that you’re going to notice more and more things that make your mood worse, when there might be so many good things happening too that you’re just missing because you’re focusing more on the bad. Gratitude journalling is a way to bring the good in your life to the front of your mind so that you focus more on the good and therefore attract more of it into your life!
Stay On Top of Emails and Digital Clutter
Going along with the apartment decluttering tip further up, you also want to make sure that your inbox isn’t piling up full of unread emails. And if you’re like me, you might also have thousands of pictures and videos in your phone and a bunch of duplicates of the same things that need to be deleted.
Go through and unsubscribe from all of the email lists of brands that you never even open and delete your old unread emails as well. Then go and spend 15 or 20 minutes deleting stuff from your phone that doesn’t uplift you or you don’t need anymore. Because if you want to know how to become “that girl”, keeping an organized phone and email inbox is another really crucial step to take!
