The choices you make every day have an impact on your happiness. And while you’re young you might feel invincible and that even negative choices can be ironed out so they don’t leave an imprint on your future. But wouldn’t it be better if you made more good choices than questionable ones? These are decisions and actions you can make and take that will pay it forward for your future.
Tear up the traditional, old-fashioned ‘rule book’ for what is expected of 20 somethings. If you get married at 25, that is great, but you also shouldn’t feel like a failure if you don’t want to. Write your own rules!
It’s vital that you finally learn how to incorporate the two Cs in to your life: communication and compromise. When we are children we are all inherently selfish, but going forward in to adulthood you have to learn to live in harmony with others.
Don’t give up on your dreams early in your life. Commit to always striving for your goals, no matter how long it is going to take.
Look within yourself and discover what your true talents are. Knowing what they are will stand in great stead for making positive choices going forward.
Do not be pressured by your parents in to following a path that you never wanted to go down. Be strong in your convictions and live your own dream.
Don’t live a false life on social media that makes you out to be something you are not. Live and love your truth and you will feel much more complete.
If you are a good person, then you deserve to be respected by everybody. Have courage in your convictions and don’t stand for any unwarranted disrespect that might come your way.
Never lose your sense of wonder and curiosity with the world. Becoming a true cynic will do nothing but limit your possibilities in life.
Don’t settle down too early. Do some exploring in your early adulthood so that you don’t feel unfulfilled in your later years.
Being humble is one of the most important life lessons to master. Remember that you are not entitled to anything and that every day is a gift.
Try to avoid continually pressing snooze on that alarm clock. Make the most of the days you have and don’t get into the habit of being too lazy.
The sooner you adopt healthy eating or change your diet, the longer you are going to be able to feel the benefits of it for.
Getting out in the sun, even for as little as ten minutes a day, can have a really positive impact on your health and your mood.
Adding a little spice to your meals every now and then can give your metabolism a boost and make you feel much healthier in the long run.
Studies have proven that standing up even for only 15 minutes a day can make a big difference for your long-term health.
Find a type of exercise that you actually enjoy doing. It doesn’t feel like such a chore that way and you will be inspired to work out much more often.
I’m not suggesting you go full vegetarian, but perhaps try something like ‘Meat Free Mondays’ to see if it makes a difference for your body and digestion in the long run. Plus it's kinda' cool to call yourself a flexitarian.
Commit to making your bedroom a no tech zone. You will feel much less zombie-like if your phone does keep you up until the early hours of the morning!
Get yourself sorted out with a good doctor who you will be able to stay with for the years to come. It’s great to have one physician who you can build a relationship with; it keeps your future health care consistent.
