Social media makes it so easy to envy other people’s lives: their travels, their homes, their careers. But I guarantee your life is already worthy of all that admiration and awe. You just have to start romanticizing it!

This is how I started romanticizing my life and how you can do the same with yours.

What does it mean to romanticize your life?

You know all those pictures and videos of “that girl” on Instagram? The one who gets up early, has a peaceful (and oddly satisfying) morning routine, and looks like she’s living in a fairy tale even while she’s just commuting to work?

“That girl” doesn’t live a perfect life, she just romanticizes the life she has.

When you romanticize your life, you appreciate the little moments throughout your day and see the beauty in your surroundings. You get to treat the mundane things — a cup of coffee, writing your to-do list, taking an afternoon walk — like special, movie-worthy moments, and it can completely change your outlook on life.

6 Ways to Romanticize Your Life

1. Get yourself in the mood.
