If you’re hitting 30 in a few weeks’ time, it’s time to evaluate your life so far. While you’re at it, consider incorporating these habits into your life as well.
Eating Healthy and Home Cooked Meals
We understand completely, life’s most hectic stage is from your 20s to your 30s. You start working, you start building your empire and by the time you’ve hit 30, you might even have formed permanent relationships. So it goes without saying that you are not going to have a lot of time to spend on thinking about what you’re eating. However, eating right is vital¾and for many reasons. Even if you feel you might not be able to, try your best to cook at least a few home cooked meals per week. Learn a few simple recipes that won’t require you to spend a long time prepping; or that won’t require a lot of ingredients. These are the most practical recipes to make in a hurry.
Exercising For a Minimum of 20 Minutes Each Day
We all know how important exercising is. But like cooking, this too takes a back seat when our schedule gets hectic. Try your best to at least exercise 20 minutes each day. If you feel this is not enough to keep you healthy, consider adopting a few healthier habits like walking or cycling to work, taking the stairs whenever possible and travelling on foot in general when it comes to short distances.
Using Makeup to Enhance Your Beauty, Not To Cover Your Flaws
Nowadays, thanks to what media seems to be telling us over and over, we are all firm believers to the fact that we need to be “perfect” in order to achieve something in life. As a result, now more than ever, people have self-confidence issues rooting from their appearance. As you are about to hit 30, it is time to face reality. Stop using makeup to hide your imperfection, use it instead to enhance your natural beauty and to highlight the features that you’re proud of. A light coating of foundation (choose mineral foundation brands Australia), a well-chosen colour of lipstick and the right style of eyeliner application works well enough to do so.
Being Punctual and Respecting Others
Being punctual is a very valuable trait to cultivate; especially before you hit 30. Learn to respect the time that belongs to you, as well as those around you. If you are not known for anything else, at least be known to work punctually and efficiently.
Sleeping Regular Hours, Not When Exhaustion Overtakes Your Mind
Stop waiting until exhaustion takes over your mind to head to bed. No matter who tells you that; that’s not the “adult way”. Aim to get in at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Prepare for the morning (clothes, files, make-ahead meals) before going to bed so you need not worry about getting up early to do those tasks¾something that will guaranteed keep you awake longer.
Living Each Day and Not For Just the Weekends
Don’t wait until your retirement to live each day. Life is never guaranteed to you, so you never know when your time on Earth would reach a stop. Take the time to do at least one activity that you like each day. Use one weekend every month to travel somewhere; near or far¾backpacking holidays aren’t as expensive as you think. Or better yet, use your allocated holidays to go on a trip that will surely make memories. Stop waiting for the weekends to do things.
