5 Practical Lessons To Be Your Best Self In Your 30s


Let’s say you are turning 30 in a few months and you feel like nothing is going on with your life. It’s frustrating right? Don’t worry; everybody has felt that way at least once in their lives. The truth is there are things you can do to improve the quality of your life and be the best you in your 30s. Now here is the list:

  1. Save for your retirement as early as now.

Some of you have not kept your finances in a good track. It is a common mistake committed by many people. You can change your situation by starting to get rid of your debts. Start paying them now. Keep a percentage of your monthly salary and allot it for your emergency fund so you will be financially equipped to handle health and personal issues in the future. 30% of your salary can be allocated to it and it won’t hurt. Try to spend less. If you are tempted to buy something, think first if you really need it. If you don’t, then don’t go for it. If you want to make an investment, it’s extremely important that you understand what you are getting yourself into. Don’t engage in business that you don’t truly understand because higher chances are you are going to lose money. Save now as much as you if you don’t want to keep working for the rest of your life.

  1. Take care of your health.

Take care of your health as early as now. You don’t need to wait for diseases to start to develop or invade your body before you begin to exercise and practice a healthy lifestyle. Many diseases nowadays are connected with unhealthy lifestyle. Drinking and smoking are two good examples of unhealthy lifestyle. If you can’t get rid of these vices, at least lessen them. You will notice a change in your body’s performance. You’ll feel more energized. A little lifestyle changes can go a long way. If you are not into exercising or hitting the gym, consider other physical activities that can help improve your muscle function, blood circulation, and mental condition.

  1. Spend time with people you truly care about.

You have to carefully put a boundary to who leaves or who stays in your life. Not all people are meant to stay and you should be totally fine to let people go especially if they are not good for your well-being. Stay away from people who complicate your life and don’t encourage you to improve. Spend time only with people you care about and care about you. Most importantly, you must not let anyone treat you badly. You have the right to be treated decently so if somebody is acting like a jerk, get rid of him completely. You don’t need another source of stress in your life.

  1. Focus on what you’re really good at.

There is at least one thing that you’re really good at. Identify it and focus on honing that particular skill. You never know how much success it could bring you once you find something you’re excellent at and are passionate about it. Doing what you love makes work enjoyable and tolerable because you never get tired. Focus on what you’re really good at and be an inspiration to others.

  1. Don’t be afraid of change.

The only constant thing in this world is change so never be afraid of it. It’s just normal that people around you will change but you also have to recognize that as you grow older, you change your perspective and preferences in life. If you want to succeed in your 30’s you should be more open-minded. Don’t stick with conventional thinking. Try new things and you’ll be surprised how they contribute to your growth as an individual.
