Your 20s can be an incredibly daunting time. Whether you’re at school or you’re in the workforce or both, there’s a lot of pressure to do something with your life. Let’s take a look at the 21 best ways to manage your life in your 20s
1. Bankruptcy in Self-Education
People just keep on staring at their phones; almost all the time. Hardly any time they give to analyzing self with patience & vision. Majority junta is trying to become ‘what they do not want to be’.
2. The chase of Love
I always wonder how an obsession with sex will ever help people in their pursuit for love.
3. The ignorance about Money
Whoever you are, whatever you do, whatever you want to do in life – start understanding money, before you start spending it. It is the machinery on which the world operates.
4. The habit of not Reading
It gives you more lives. Trust me, it does. I have seen voracious readers. They have a confidence that is not replicable by any other form of passion.
5. Saying ‘YES’ to everything
We have no idea – the amount of damage it does to our lives. Don’t say yes when you want to say no. We have that ‘yes-mam-school-boy’ habit. And we can’t say no to horrible bosses or bad relationships and we start feeling stuck.
6. Ignoring your Body
This is one of the most weird ways of screwing your life! Everyone wants a nicer body but almost everyone does nothing to achieve it.
7. Block all social media during the work day, limit using it as much as possible
There’s no better way to procrastinate than by browsing social media. One minute you are stalking your ex and the next you’re on their college roommate’s sister’s best friend’s Facebook page.
8. Create a schedule/routine
By creating a schedule, you can better prepare yourself for the weeks ahead. It allows you to put all your commitments in front of you so that you may realize the time you can dedicate to each obligation.
9. Don’t waste your weekends being hungover
Going out is great and a ton of fun, I’d be lying if I said otherwise. Try and pace yourself so that when you wake up in the morning, you don’t have an excessively pounding headache.
10. Don’t over promise and under deliver
It’s far too easy to say yes to an idea that sounds great in theory. It’s a whole different ball game, however, if you are just agreeing to agree without any intention of following through.
11. Reserve time for yourself
Preserve your mental health by recognizing when it’s time to take a break and separate yourself from the anxieties life brings.
12. Prioritize your sh*t
Don’t waste time on things that are of little importance to you. Compare the items on your to-do list and start checking things off in order of their relevance.
13. Set daily goals/tasks
When you wake up in the morning, whether or not you feel like P.Diddy, it’s extremely productive to know what you want to set out and accomplish that day.
14. Make deadlines
By creating deadlines for yourself, you can hope to avoid the trap of procrastination.
15. Get good rest
Sleep is one of the most important things you need in order to maintain good mental health. You need at least 7 hours to function throughout the day.
16. Get a planner
Whether this is a physical notebook or an application for your phone, writing things down helps to get them done.
17. Learn to say no
Stop saying yes to every single opportunity! All you are going to do is stress yourself over the anxiety of a multitude of plans.
18. Don’t commit to more than one TV show
Netflix addiction is actually a problem. I mean they just have every single season of essentially every great show ever made available at the tips of your fingers.
19. Work out
Exercising helps to keep your mind at ease while keeping you focused. It reinforces the importance of establishing a routine, something that can be applied to multiple aspects of a person’s life.
20. Get up early
If you don’t think you can get to everything you need to during the day, you may need to wake up earlier.
21. No unnecessary drama
Do not waste your time dealing with people who only bring negativity into your life. You need to surround yourself with people who are constantly pushing themselves for the better.
