As the age of 30 approached, I realized that adulting is a complex process, and we need to be careful. 30 does not mean 20. Many changes in our brains, bodies and brains help us prepare for adulthood. Although I have given up on folding a fitted sheet, I believe there is still hope for self-care and communication. These are six habits you should develop in your twenties.


It is said that you should take care of your skin when there aren’t too many problems. Prevention is the key. This is something you already know, so don’t ignore it. It is time to do your research and invest in skincare products that will help keep your skin healthy and hydrated as you age. If you’re in your teens, make sure you clean your skin properly (yes, that includes double-cleansing) and use sunscreen regularly. You can add a Vitamin C serum to your skin if you’re in your 20s.


Time is a luxury, and it will be the most desired commodity as we enter this new chapter of our lives. You thought you were busy at high school? Wait until you go to college. When you become a young professional, you will realize how much you spent in college. This vicious circle continues as you age and more responsibilities come along. Find a hobby that you love! Not all fitness is bad. A trampoline class was a great way to get your heart pumping. Try a group fitness class or join a running club to find what makes you feel sweaty but not anxious. You can try a group fitness or running club to see if you can start working in the morning. 


You should be able to communicate effectively with others at this stage in your life. What is your preferred way to get criticism? Give criticism? Which is your love language? What are your love languages? How often do you talk to your parents? How about long-distance friendships. Are you assertive enough at work? Communication is all about knowing yourself. Please take steps to know who you are and how it relates to your professional or personal relationships with others.


If we believed that life was more hectic than it was before 30, then we would be lying to ourselves. This will only worsen, so just like with fitness, we have to plan the time it takes to get things done. Find the best time to be productive. What time of the day is it? When all your distractions have gone? It is important to have a plan for what you will do. I love to make lists and have the greatest success when organized. You won’t have productive days or even weeks. But you must know your limits and be able to stay focused when you need. Even if you’re doing it as self-care, long Netflix binges are perfectly acceptable.


Trust me, FOMO is real. In this age of “insta-perfection”, it is important to remember that you must always put yourself first. You may have to miss out on social events or cancel dinner with your best friend. Each quarter, make a list of at least 3-5 goals that you consider your top priorities. If you feel under pressure, make a list of 3 to 5 goals each quarter that are your priorities and then decide which ones will help you reach your larger goals. If your goal is to lose 5 pounds and get stronger, going to a dessert shop with your friends is great. Perhaps you can skip the outing and suggest a makeup pilates class with your friends. It can be difficult to balance, but self-love and love are essential.
