Smart Ways to Make the Most of Your 30’s
Sometimes every day seems to bring more new options, and you may feel like you are right where you should be. Moving from schools and initial job experiences into your thirties, can make it an exhilarating time to enjoy the moment and savor the rewards.
But Lifehack suggests you might want to do a few tuneups too to keep yourself mentally and physically strong for the long haul.
First they suggest becoming comfortable in your own skin, as you make income and bills match, develop a career, and add a spouse, children, or other family responsibilities. Learn to appreciate what you are accomplishing as you do it. Being positive will do a whole lot to help it all thrive.
At the same time they suggest you keep your life dreams alive so they can continue to develop through your forties and fifties. Also, check in on your parents regularly, establish solid exercise routines, rethink bad eating habits and eat well most of the time. Finally, make sure you are doing what you really want to keep on doing.
You may find this quite familiar if you have already figured out the best time of day to exercise, and the easiest ways to juggle your career and family. But not all of us do that automatically.
So take a good long look at where you are, and where you should be
If you have picked up a few extra pounds, skipped some of your old daily exercises, and gotten into longer work hours with shorter hours available for the kids in the evening, you may want to do another rethink.
Kids grow up and grow away with or without the times needed for stories, baths and shared moments. Parents age and slow down even if you are not quite ready to lend that needed hand. Careers keep right on going rewarding you or draining you, depending on the choices you have made. Spouses share your dreams and help to tailor the future, or move into a separate compartment and become someone else, depending on what both of you bring to the relationship.
So take the time in your thirties, while so much life is still strong and fresh, and make sure you keep it that way, taking care of yourself, keeping an open mind, and constantly looking for better ways to make room for it all.
