Hello everyone it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today’s topic is going to be on something super interesting which is focusing on the idea of romanticising. I’m sure many of you have heard the phrase ‘You have to start romanticizing your life’ It’s been going viral, particularly in the last few years – so today I want to break down exactly what it is, how it can be done, and more. Let’s jump into it!

- HOW IT’S MAINSTREAM PROMINENCE BEGAN

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ROMANTICISE?
To talk about something in a way that makes it sound better than it really is, or to believe that something is better than it really isCAMBRIDGE DICTIONARY
Above is an official definition of what it means to romanticise, and to me, I think hope and belief are at the core of all of it. Romanticising is built off of your mindset – you have to genuinely believe that your life is incredible, because that can help to make it progress and bloom even further! If you think of your life being amazing now, then you know it can be in the future as well and you’ll always remember to live in the moment!
HOW IT’S MAINSTREAM PROMINENCE BEGAN
The idea of romanticising your life actually originated off of Tiktok, when user Ashley Ward posted a video with her voiceover, urging her followers to romanticise their lives. It went viral, and eventually everyone began to use that sound and romanticise their pictures and videos.
Eventually, it grew so big that it no longer was just something for social media – but rather a way of life for some people. People have taken it off of the app, to their reality. It’s now known as thinking of yourself as the main character in your own life. Thinking of yourself like this ensures that you pay attention to yourself, your life now – and most importantly, appreciate everything and want to build your life further.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE DOING TO ROMANTICISE THEIR LIVES?
There are so many methods that people are using to actually look at their life so much more beautifully. One of them being just appreciating the small things. Maybe a beautiful sunrise, or laughter with friends. It could honestly be anything. Remember, the whole idea of this romanticism is to capture ‘main character’ energy and that means finding your casual magic in life.
Also, romanticising your life has also been associated with aesthetics a lot recently. Making everything aesthetically pleasing is also a form of romanticism as it makes you more motivated to achieve something, and emphasises your importance and what you have to be lucky for. People tend to use this method for more chore-like activities such as studying! I’m sure you’ll all be familiar with the study TikToks associated with this sound!
Other simple things you can do are visit a new location, listen to music, go out with friends & more!
DOES IT ACTUALLY WORK?
Many people have found a lot of success in the idea of romanticising life – it can fuel motivation, happiness and more! Ultimately, a lot of people have seen it as a form of mindfulness. Mindfulness is having a full awareness of your life – and romanticising it allows you to have focus on the little things and give you that extra boost of life as you go about your daily activities!
However, there is another perspective to be aware of. I think it’s worth mentioning that you have to be very careful of how you carry this out. Sometimes, an oversaturated amount of romanticism can be very damaging to yourself and other people. For yourself, it can cause a little bit of delusion – because remember you have to be realistic so that you can plan accordingly. Too much optimism can be a risk – so remember to just limit yourself. For others, it can be upsetting, or maybe even spark some slight envy if you’re sharing something you wish they had.
Overall, I think romanticising your life can be a great tool to build your blocks for a great future. Using this technique wisely can bring great results!

Romanticising life! Wow! That’s an interesting idea! I’ll try it out!
I’ve been romanticizing my life since late last year and it has been amazing. I have noticed a change in my lifestyle and mental health since I started. I was planning to write a post on this
Hmm, let me think about casual magic and how to romanticize today, which is going to be mundane and ordinary and non-exciting. Well… I am probably going to read something, which is my way of romanticizing my time.
