Social media trends come and go, but this one might just be one of the best yet. If you don’t use TikTok and have no idea what the hot girl walk is (or you are on TikTok but still haven’t come across this), be prepared for the latest fad that is no doubt going to take over the platform in the coming weeks.
This is how I HGW. #hotgirlwalk
The hot girl walk was created by TikTok user @exactlyliketheothergirls. Mia, who’s 22, is the self-titled creator of the trend, her profile bio states, and she’s damn proud of it. As she should be!
The hot girl walk has three basic rules. There are plenty of ways to be attractive, but if you want to take part in the TikTok hot girl walk, Mia has three ground rules that are actually pretty excellent. So much so that frankly, we should all be following them on a daily basis.
First rule: practice gratitude. While walking, you should be thinking about everything in your life that you’re thankful for. Yes, we all have struggles and life is tough sometimes, but you also have a roof over your head, food on your table, and probably tons of other things to be grateful for. Recognize that.
Second rule: set goals. Just because this is a TikTok trend doesn’t mean things can’t get deep with the hot girl walk. The second rule is about thinking about your goals as well as the steps you need to take to achieve them. After all, you’re strong, smart, and capable, so what’s stopping you? How can you get to where you want to go?
Third rule: Self-love is key. The final rule is simple in that it only requires you to remind yourself of your own personal beauty. Never forget how beautiful, unique, special, and worthy of love you are. This is so important and it’s crazy how often we forget it.
The hot girl walk is all about positivity. You follow these rules while getting out and about in the world (or even hopping on a treadmill!) and simply taking a walk. It’s all about incorporating more movement and exercise into your life while also boosting your mental health by staying positive and uplifting yourself.
What happens when you start being negative? Mia says when that happens, just turn up the volume on your playlist and get into some of your favorite songs to drown that negativity out.
How long should a hot girl walk last? Certified nutritionist Vanessa Liu told Bustle that to get the most out of this TikTok trend, your hot girl walk should ideally last about an hour, during which time you should cover three to four miles of distance. Sounds like pretty good advice!
