The summer time is a great opportunity to work on bettering yourself and reinventing your life. With good weather and positive attitudes surrounding you it is completely possible to make huge progress towards becoming the best version of you. But if you aren’t sure where to start with this journey don’t worry I have you covered. Today we are chatting about how to reinvent yourself during summer 2023!
Before we get into the steps for how to reinvent yourself this summer let’s chat about what it really means to reinvent yourself.
What does it mean to reinvent yourself?
Reinventing yourself has a lot of parts to it- so let’s break those down to answer how to reinvent my life.
Goals and Dreams–
Your goals and dreams are probably a large part of what motivated you to start reinventing yourself and they are probably a large part of what is going to look different in your new self.
In order to reinvent your life you have to look at what you want to achieve and what you want your life to look like!
So sit down and grab a notebook and start jotting down goals and dreams. I recommend doing goals for 6 months, 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years from now. And also creating a vision board to really visualize these dreams.
Routines and Habits–
The next part of reinventing yourself is adjusting your routines and habits. You can’t change your overall life if you don’t change the little things you do during the day.
I recommend writing down and creating new daily routines. Especially focusing on creating the morning and night routine that will be filled with habits and tasks that benefit the person you want to become.
Developing as a person and creating a new and improved mindset is a large part of what it means to reinvent yourself.
Work on developing yourself into a new and better person!
This is a large part but is also the most complicated. What your personal growth journey looks like will involve a lot of different steps and ideas. It will be deeply personal to what you need to do to grow into being the person you want to be after you are done reinventing yourself.
There are a lot of intangible things on this list but there are also physical aspects to reinventing yourself as well.
That doesn’t just mean your body, it also means things like where you live, your education, your career. Anything that exists outside of your mind is a physical attribute to reinventing yourself.
So let’s get into these ideas for how to reinvent yourself this summer!

How To Reinvent Yourself During Summer 2023
Reinvent yourself this summer with these ideas:
Idea 1: Master your skin care routine
Working on getting glowing and healthy skin is glow up 101!
Summer is a time when you want to be able to go makeup free at the beach and pool which is where having clear skin is super important.
A few tips for achieving this:
Find a brand that works for you. Chances are if the brand works for your skin with some products then it probably will work for most. My current favorite is The Ordinary products they are working magic on my skin.
Truly evaluate your skin! I always thought I had really oily skin all over by realized when really paying attention that I have combination skin with seriously dry patches.
Only try one new product at a time. You don’t know which product is irritating your skin or is working for you if you try multiple new products at once.
Idea 2: Work on your 5 year plan
Figuring out the next steps in your life is a big part of reinventing yourself.
If you don’t know what you are working towards and what you want to accomplish you can’t start taking steps towards it!
So grab a poster board and write down 10 things you want to happen in the next 5 years and then start thinking about how you can actually achieve those dreams and goals.
Idea 3:Don’t worry about others opinions
If you are stressing about others opinions you will never truly be able to reinvent yourself! So remind yourself anything you worry about judgement that you are becoming who you want to be.
In order to reinvent yourself you really need to embrace this and stop worrying about what others are thinking about you and your new choices.
Idea 4: Create a vision board
This one of the steps for glowing up is one of my personal favorites! Vision boards are a great way to visualize what you want you life to look like post-glow up.
If you have magazines laying around you can create a physical vision board but for most it will be simplest to make a digital one! Use Pinterest for the inspiration and then use Canva for a blank template to create the vision board.
I have a video here of me making my digital vision board if you want some inspiration.
Idea 5: Start learning a new language
Remember glowing up is more than physical appearance. It is all about improving yourself all around which includes expanding your knowledge.
Learning a new language is a great way to improve yourself and to learn about other cultures at the same time.
Don’t worry it also doesn’t have to be expensive! Just go into the app store and search for apps to help you learn the language you are wanting and there is usually plenty of free or super cheap options.
Idea 6: Whiten your teeth
This is such a simple step for reinventing the physical side of things that makes a huge difference!
Your smile is one of your most unique and beautiful features so make sure you are taking the steps to highlight your gorgeous smile.
Thankfully it has become super easy to whiten your teeth and brighten your smile. You can get different kits that take less than 30 minutes or even these cool whitening pens that take less than 5!
Idea 7: Read a self improvement book monthly
Self improvement looks different for every person but everyone has opportunities to improve themselves.
The first part of this is to take some time to evaluate what is important for you to improve about yourself and then from there do a little research into what books are the best for improving those areas.
I recommend reading at least one a month and if you have the time and find this helpful then try upping to 2-3 a month. Self improvement books can make a large difference long term in your life and helping you become the best version of yourself.
Idea 8: Work on embracing yourself
Ultimately the final and best of the steps for glowing up this summer (or anytime) is to embrace exactly who you are.
Self confidence is the most beautiful thing that you can have. You can improve yourself in so many aspects but if you don’t embrace the amazing and wonderful person that you already are then those improvements will never truly glow!
