Adulting! It has its ups and downs. Of course, we all want to be happy in the here and now, BUT part of being a responsible adult is setting ourselves up for a happy future too. We can’t just float through life and hope for the best- there are things that you can, and should be doing to ensure you live to your best life!
Look After Your Health
You only get one body, if you want to live a long and happy life then it’s crucial that you look after it. Eat well and learn to make meals that taste delicious and are packed with nutrients. Exercise, taking on an activity that you genuinely enjoy whether it’s hiking, biking, swimming, dance classes or gym sessions with a friend.
If you’re addicted to smoking, alcohol or drugs then please seek professional help, facilities like Schick Shadel Hospital can help you to get clean. Addiction is mentally and physically draining. If you want to live a long life, you absolutely need to seek help immediately. You deserve to be healthy!
Improve Your Financial Position
Money isn’t everything, but being in a stable financial position can certainly make life easier for yourself. When you’re not living paycheck to paycheck, you can save money. You’ll then have a buffer if you get landed with an unexpected expense. It means you can afford nice things, and to travel to places which makes life more interesting.
If you’re in debt, first of all, focus on this. Sell unwanted items, do overtime at work or even earn money from home as a way to pay this back more quickly. Consider cutting up your cards and once the balances are paid, close the accounts. When you’re out of debt you can begin saving, start with a ‘rainy day/ buffer’ account with a few hundred dollars in there to cushion the blow if your car breaks down, washing machine stops working, an unexpected bill comes through or any other expense.
The more you can save beyond this the better. In time, you could aim to put down a mortgage deposit to buy your own house or make other investments. These will earn you money over time and can help to secure you a brighter financial future.
Focus on Friends and Family
Life is great is when you are surrounded by the people you love. On their deathbed, so many people report that they wish they’d have spent more time with the ones that mattered most to them. We all lead such busy lives so it can be difficult to spend as much time as we’d like with loved ones but make an effort. Perhaps once a month you could arrange a family dinner, all meet at a restaurant or invite them round to your place and cook.
In the summer, host a big BBQ- or a picnic in the park. Ask everyone to bring some food, drink, and games. Don’t wait until the occasional wedding, or worse, funeral to see the people in your life that you care about.
Live Your Best Life
If you want to live your best life, it’s 100% possible! Focusing on the things that are important to you like your family and friends and improving your health and finances can definitely help push you in the right direction.
