Aesthetic Life Over aesthetic Look

Are you a person who aspires to be aesthetically pleasing in all aspects of your life? Well you clicked on the right blog. When people take note of the phrase “aesthetically pleasing” their mind goes to physical traits and attributes, which isn’t the case. When you see an aesthetically pleasing person, they tend to look “clean” or like they have their life put together. Which indeed may be the truth. Being aesthetically pleasing isn’t about your physical looks as much as your mental. This blog will go over how to be aesthetically pleasing in all aspects of your life starting with your mind.

The first step to making your life aesthetically pleasing is to be productive. According to Daniel Gilbert, the author of Stumbling on Happiness, “A wandering mind is not a happy mind.” In simpler terms, to live a happy and more fulfilling life, you need to be able to plan your time accordingly. I’ve noticed that the summer time is when productivity levels start to really drop and this is because there is so much free time, especially for students, and they don’t know what to do with it all. I’ve fallen victim to this in previous summers, but something that has helped me with this is a thirty-day challenge. A statistic from says that the three main benefits from thirty day challenges are more daily motivation, mental boost to make change, and allows you to become better with consistency. This works especially for the people who don’t know how to handle having a big amount of free time.

Another way to level up your life and make it more aesthetic is to be organized. I know that when I’m in a messy environment such as my room, or when my school papers aren’t in order, I feel very discombobulated and stressed out. In order to have a positive aesthetic mindest, you must place yourself in a positive aesthetic environment. I get that things tend to get messy overtime, however, something that has helped me alot with eliminating mess is to set up a designated time to clean your space. Sometimes all we need is a when and where to give us the motivation to clean, so by setting a reminder, you will have this engraved into your mind as something that you’re obligated to do.

I know that there is a certain criteria of what aesthetic looks like, however, you need to remember that everybody is different, that’s why there are multiple aesthetics to fit everybody’s way of life. You will never reach an aesthetically pleasing standard if you’re doing it for the wrong reason. I want to give you one final piece of information before you go. The term “Aesthetic” means beauty, and a lot of the time we forget that beauty can describe so much more than just your physical appearance. You are more than just your Physical appearance. I hope you walk away from this blog with a few helpful tips and tricks, but also, a new perspective on the word aesthetic.
