2023 Glow Up Guide: From Basic To Baddie

Danielle Richardson January 02, 2023

No matter when you're reading this, now is the perfect time to plan your 2023 Glow Up!

2023 is a Universal 7 Year in numerology which means we can expect themes of self-reflection, intuition, faith, and analytical thinking. This is a year that will bring connection with ourselves, a refining of our spiritual practice, and a focus on being of service to others. It’s a year to double down on your personal growth and self-care while not being afraid to evolve.

January is the perfect time to revisit + rethink our habits. “Our habits will either make us or break us, we become what we repeatedly do”. Spend some time this month reflecting and redesigning your life. You are deserving of the best life has to offer and I want you to remember that! Focus on taking care of yourself this year mentally + physically + emotionally + spiritually + financially.

Fierce Clarity exists to empower you to create + manifest your happiest and healthiest life and this post is full of tools to help. Below are resources to support + inspire you on your journey to take better care of yourself in 2023.

Creating A Vision for 2023:

  • Gain Perspective via Numerology + Astrology 

    I love to start the year off by reading my numerology + astrology forecasts. The cosmos are constantly moving, like background music, and it’s much easier to dance along if we know what song is playing. If you only look at one 2023 report, I highly encourage you to explore teledipity.com. I love the no-nonsense approach to numerology and the forecasts are formatted as written or as a podcast. Additionally, you can explore astrology here or via Susan Miller

  • Grace for Last Year

    “Honor the space between no longer and not yet.” As you’re thinking about 2022, honor the space between where you’ve been and where you’re headed. Towards the end of the year, we may feel discouraged or discontent if we didn’t complete our goals by our self-imposed deadlines. Instead of this feeling, choose to honor the space and honor the becoming. We have to learn to feel grateful for the journey happening now and relinquish some of the focus on what we’ve yet to accomplish. Read More.


  • Self-Care via Movement + Meditation 

    The mind + body + spirit are all interconnected. Metaphysical illnesses can manifest in the physical body and vice versa. This year, commit to movement + meditation. With many of us working from home, we have additional time in the mornings and evenings because we have eliminated our commute. Use this time to solidify routines that will support your mental + physical + emotional self-care. Consider mind-body movement like Fierce Clarity Yoga or explore other movement modalities. Read More

  • Manifest Your Best Life

    Manifestation is a result of thoughts + effort. It isn’t esoteric, but more of a natural law. You’re always rewarded for having the audacity to dream big and pursue your goals. Manifestation is setting a goal and working towards it, not waiting for it to come to you. It’s deliberately creating a single-minded focus and taking action to make it happen. We are all capable of manifesting our ideas into reality! Keep reading to find out the most important steps to create new opportunities for yourself. Read More


  • Detoxify Your Body

    After the extended Holiday break, it’s normal to feel sluggish + foggy. Set aside time this January to detoxify. Detoxification is simply “the process of removing toxic substances or qualities”. Periods of detoxification are periods of self-purification. These are periods of healing to allow our bodies to return to our natural state of wellbeing. Customize your detox so that the duration works for you — 3-days, 7-days, 21-days, 30-days — you have flexibility! If you’re curious about the detoxification process or interested in creating one of your own — SIGN UP HERE!

  • Bring Pleasure Back To Food

    Replace limitation and restriction with pleasure and enjoyment. Cook more of your own meals using real, fresh ingredients. To make 2023 your healthiest year, think of food as medicine — is what you’re eating helping or harming you? I like to do a Fierce Clarity Detox during the month of January and I focus on a Whole30 elimination protocol. You can also try a healthy meal delivery service like SAKARA and save 20% with code “XOFIERCECLARITY”.  Ditch the scale and focus on how food makes you feel. BONUS TIP: Try and have at least one plant-based day per week!


  • Create Intentions

    Do you want to create intentions for 2023 but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you. Setting an intention can center around a positive quality you want to cultivate, an aspect of life you want to change, or breaking a habitual pattern. It doesn’t matter if it takes the form of a word, an affirmation, or a mantra; what matters is the spirit behind the intention. Humans have free will for a reason. No matter our situation, we can decide in a moment to turn things around. If your heart is in the right place, your intention is on fertile ground. We can choose to see the present moment as a launching pad for our future. We can choose to see today as the day everything changes. Read More

  • Connect With Yourself via Journaling

    Journaling provides a safe space to write your goals, wishes, aspirations, and inspirations. It allows you to connect the dots and most of all — it helps you get in touch with your true, authentic self. Each December, the FC community embarks on the 12 Days of You Journaling challenge to create clarity for the year ahead. If you missed the challenge, consider beginning your year with it! For 12 days you’ll receive an email with a journal prompt + activity designed to lead you on a journey to reconnect with yourself. Sign up for the free journaling journey HERE and begin the year by realigning with yourself. Read More
