How I Romanticize My Life Every Day

I remember when I first heard about “romanticizing your life.” I wasn’t on social media that much at the time, but it really inspired me to start the journey.

In 2021, I started a TikTok account that’s now home to over half a million friends, and I think we all have one thing in common.

We want to romanticize our every day life.

When I first saw a video about a girl romanticizing her life, I felt incredibly inspired.

I wanted to feel the way she felt - experience life in a new way that made everything feel a bit more special.

So, I documented my pursuit of living life through rose-colored glasses.

Throughout this process, I started doing simple things that really made my daily life feel like a movie. Even if it was just making my morning coffee, I began curating a life experience for myself that made every second enjoyable.

If you’re reading this, chances are you want to do the same.

I wrote up a list of three simple things I do every day to romanticize my life, and today, I want to share them with you.

Let’s get right into it.

Your morning beverage.

When I started to romanticize my life, the first thing I did was create a morning coffee ritual.

My morning beverage was no longer just a bit of caffeine to help me make it through the day - it was an experience.

The idea is to get used to creating experiences for yourself. So, you’ll want to start adding things to your morning ritual that make it more intentional.

I start by turning on light lofi music on in the background. There’s just something about it that makes you feel like you’re in a movie.

Then, when I open my jar of espresso beans, I inhale. I smell the coffee before ever tasting it.

Once again, it immerses you in the experience.

From there, I treat each action like it’s something special. Pressing the coffee down gently instead of in a rush.

Taking my time to pour it into my favorite mug.

Watching the milk mix into it.

And finally, taking the first sip while watching the sunrise.

Study or work from a new place.

The next way I romanticize my life is by taking my books or work to a new place. Getting out of your usual environment is a great way to feel like life is a bit more special.

My favorite thing to do is to go to either a coffee shop or the library. Surrounding yourself with other people who are also focusing adds to the experience. (Remember to curate the experience!)

And it doesn’t start or stop there.

Prior to leaving, I pack my bag with my favorite pens and pencils.

I bring notebooks that inspire creativity and headphones to help me zone in.

Once I get to the shop, I get a drink I genuinely enjoy - usually a yummy latte.

Finally, I love to sit by windows while listening to music. Watching people walk by, trees sway in the wind.

Find moments that bring you a sense of joy or peace and hold onto them.

And the added benefit to doing this? You might even get more work done! Switching up your environment has a positive impact on your productivity levels.

Treat every night like a self care night.

After I started to treat every night like a self care night, my life got significantly better.

I used to think that a self care night had to be earned. That it was something you did once in a while but never too often.

When I started to actively romanticize my life, I realized how much I could benefit from adding bits of self care into my night routine.

Instead of waiting for the right moment to try out a new face mask - I’d put it on that night.

By embracing your life in the now, you’ll find that it starts to feel more special as a whole.

Now, I allow myself to have a self care night, every night.

I light candles that make my home smell amazing. I turn on ambient lighting to add to the atmosphere.

I wear clothes that make me feel cozy and cute at the same time.

I make myself tea and add flowers into it.

I treat my nights like they’re special, and it makes them special.

At the end of the day, romanticizing your life will look different for everyone, but I think it’s something we should all try doing a bit more of.

So, how can you romanticize your life today? Share in the comments, I’d love to hear!
