what is this trend that we see everywhere?

Whether on Instagram, YouTube or even TikTok, the “That Girl routine” trend has invaded the Web. The principle ? Become “This girl”, the one with the perfect life, who gets up early in the morning, practices physical activity and sports, eats balanced meals and drinks matcha.

What does a “That Girl” day consist of?

In most of the videos posted on this trend by influencers, the structure is always the same: we discover young women getting up around 5 or 6 a.m., opening the curtains of their room, enjoying the softness of the sun’s rays. sun (Yes, they take the time), ventilate their room and make their bed. Then, the “That Girl”, installs her yoga mat and performs a training session ranging from 20 minutes to an hour. After taking a shower, she begins her morning beauty routine and performs face and body treatments. She even takes the time to massage her face with a Gua Sha (to smooth the skin and reduce wrinkles). She thinks of everything!

And the day of a “That Girl”, does not stop there. As you can imagine, “this perfect girl” also takes the time to prepare a matcha (the favorite drink of influencers) then tastes it using a straw (you can see the ultra-Instagrammable stainless steel or transparent straw ?) During her tasting, “this girl there” does some journaling, in other words: she writes her thoughts and dreams in a diary and writes a “to do list” of things to do for her day. Because yes, of course, “that girl” is super organized. Of course. Finally, she does not forget to drink her green juice during the day.

Why does it bother?

Now that you visualize the image of the “That Girl”, we explain to you why it bothers us (a little). At first, these videos from this trend are very often titled as THE routine that will allow you to be the best version of yourself. Except that this principle can cause the totally opposite effect and make us feel guilty.

By dint of seeing this type of content, we have the impression of having an “insufficient” life and of not corresponding to these “codes” of current society. Remember that the goal is to inspire and not to discourage or compare. We have the right to wake up with glued eyes, disheveled hair and to prepare a simple coffee with a machine Senseo. It’s OK !

What to benefit from it

Conversely, this tendency has positive aspects, such as motivating yourself to change a few habits in your daily life to feel better. Let’s not forget that there is no point in getting up at 6 in the morning, if it does not meet your needs. In the same vein, it is quite useless to practice a Pilates session at 7 a.m., when you would be more adept at doing it at 6 p.m. in the evening. Don’t change your everyday life for a trend. However, if you want to change some points and try a new experience, the “That Girl” trend can be beneficial. But it must be taken with tweezers.

Of course, if you want to get up at dawn to go to your favorite gym, go for it! If you want to write a “to-do list” with a clay mask on your face: don’t hesitate! But no need to feel guilty and compare your routine to others.

With that, we’ll leave you with a little “That Girl” video and we’ll get ready to prepare a matcha, because we criticize “that girl”, but we like her a little anyway. Nope ?
