Have you ever wondered what you should do when you turn 30? Well, here’s your chance. And even better: these are choices that will improve your life so you don’t have any regrets when you turn 50.
1. Start Saving
Right. You were setting up things in your 20s and buying lots of stuff. But when you’re 30, you’re probably more in control of what you spend, so you might have more disposable income. This makes it easier to start saving. It doesn’t matter if you save a lot or a little; just start.
2. Buy a House
It would suck if you retired and didn’t have a home to go to. So buy a house when you turn 30 and try to have fully paid for it by the time you’re 50. Your older self will thank you.
3. Read, read, read
Contrary to what many people think, your brain doesn’t stop growing–it never stops. So keep it active by reading as many books as you can find.
4. Be Active
If you haven’t already, start an active lifestyle. Go to the gym or even take up a sport. By the time you’re 50, you’ll be quite healthy.
5. Stop smoking
You might not be feeling the adverse effects right now, but when you’re in your 50s and your body is weaker, you’ll see just why smokers hate their younger selves. So save yourself the pain and stop smoking.
6. Maintain Family Ties
Family is more important than you might think. If you have your differences–or even have those relatives you just hate–turning 30 is the time to repair any burned bridges.
7. Give Back
Learn to start giving others without expecting anything in return–and only give something if it’s from your heart; otherwise, there’s no point. This will make you a happier and better person.
8. Keep a Diary
You’ll start to forget more and more things as you grow older. So start keeping a diary so you remember how you were when you were younger. Your memories will make you smile–or wonder what the hell you were thinking. But good or bad, it’s your life; there’s no better audience than you.
The more you travel, the more your eyes will open to the world. And everyone should travel; so don’t wait till it’s too late.
10. Eat Healthy
You can make more and more money as you grow older, but all the money in the world won’t keep you healthy if you just eat junk food. So start eating healthier food. Your body will thank you.
