Here are 20 changes you should make in your lifestyle in 20’s for great life.
With these hectic busy schedules and deadlines in office, we hardly get time to stay active. We are swaying from home to office or office to party to home. Being active and adding exercise into your daily routine will help you get time for yourself and prevent you from many possible diseases like heart attack, diabetes, obesity.
Saving is going to help you long run. Keep the financial sensibility in mind and keep aside at least 10% of your income into your saving zone and with the rest you can party, travel or shop, if you want to!!
Do not take money as your sole motivation
Do not look for things that will assure you more money, of course people want that but this is the age of experimentation. Follow what you are passionate about. This is the best time to take risks. Take money as a result of your outcome and not your goal.
Protect your skin
You are young and you still have that healthy glow on your skin. But you know how aging affects our skin, so start protecting your skin by now only. Do not sleep with makeup on and do not forget to use sunscreen.
This is the best time to explore the places and invest into memories. You do not have family obligations as of now and you are young and capable to travel around. Explore places and know different culture and people.
Care of your teeth
You just have the same set if teeth for your complete life, they are not going anywhere so it is better you start taking care of them. You can at least brush twice a day and gargle after you eat something. It can become a major trouble if you ignore them.
Set your standards
This is your age to be young and carefree and this might make you fall in the trap of partners who will not contribute much to your life. Learn from your past mistakes and do not settle for a person who holds you back from living your life to the fullest.
Alcohol is toxin. So drink wisely and rehydrate your body so as to avoid crazy hangovers. Eat healthy and make conscious beverage decisions that will lessen the effect of alcohol. Try to include natural and healthier food options in your diet and avoid junk food that only brings toxin into your body.
Lessen your tech dependency
This is the age where we are highly dependent on our gadgets. We cannot step out without our phones and are always busy on one or another gadget. If you are in this category, lessen to keep your phone aside and make real connections.
Say no to drama
You are grown up enough to know what you want and you should not settle for anything less than you deserve. Spend your energy and time on productivity and growth, and cut off from people who drain your energy.
Learn to forgive
We learn from our mistakes and same is with others. Learn to accept rejection and heart break because this is something you cannot control but learn from these and grow.
Less of busy and more of productive
Learn to manage your time. Do not wait your time in things that are unnecessary, but keep your focus on being effective and productive and doing things in half of the time.
This is the best time to take risks and experience adventure. You are young and free, have the courage to face your fears and take risks. You never know what leads you where!
Take out time from your busy schedule to learn some new skills; it can be anything like cooking classes or something you always wanted to learn. Before thinking of getting married and starting a family, start a hobby and learn something new.
Set goals and priorities
You might think this is just the starting phase and you have enough time to think about responsibilities. No!! Set your goals now and start taking small steps to achieve them.
You may be busy and juggling with things in your life; be it your career, your dating life, your independent life, your family or your friends. There will be a lot happening in your life, but you need to stop, take a deep breath and slow down. Live your life on your own pace.
Self-awareness and Self-knowledge
Learn new things about yourself every day because this is the best time to know yourself and know what you want and what makes you happy. Seize the opportunities and moments to grow to the zenith.
Know what is right and what is wrong
It is okay to make mistakes but learn to take responsibility for your actions. Learn to apologize and how to make amendments for your actions. You are no more a kid, learn to take responsibilities.
Do not compare yourself to others
Do not measure yourself against others else you will never appreciate yourself. Everyone has different story and you are your own independent self. Create your own story.
Appreciate your true friends
With the passage of time, you will come across many people. Some will be genuine, while others will be there for a purpose. Appreciate the genuine ones instead of wasting your time on those who just let you down.
