Your 30s are typically a time of settling down. The following is some wise advice from those who have already experienced their 30s.
1.They spend time with people who add value to their lives.
Stop spending time with those who don’t treat you well, and instead spend more time with loved ones. “Don’t just work. Make memories. The older you get, the harder it is to make meaningful relationships,” writes Microsoft product designer Michael Bach.
2.They pursue their a) loftier aspirations
Twenty-something often b) settle for a job they are not passionate about. Before they know it, a temporary job becomes a career. While it’s certainly more difficult to switch industries in your 30s, it’s not impossible and may be the right choice.
3.They don’t obsess about the future.
Author Mark Manson realized in his 20s that there is not a magical moment where you start feeling like an adult who has it all figured out. You cannot even anticipate your life 5 years into the future.
4.They decide whether they want kids or not.
Kids certainly are not for everyone, but c) putting off having children for an ideal situation is a bad idea. If you want to have kids, have them before it’s too late. Kids are great. They make you better in every way.
5.They take care of their health.
Make exercise and healthy eating habits a priority. “Be healthy. That is priority 1. Don't get into your 30s being slow and tired all the time,” Bach writes on question-and-answer website Quora.
6.They establish a financial foundation for the future.
If you hit 30 and you’ve set nothing aside, it’s not too late to 1) start the ball rolling. By this point, you need to save up for your retirement. Determine first what percentage of your paycheck you can easily live without and put it away at a bank.
7.They still enjoy themselves.
And finally, just because you’re not in your 20s anymore doesn’t mean you need to stop having fun. 2) Bear in mind that none of the money you work hard to make matters if you are not enjoying life.
