As you come into your mid-twenties, you realise there are some healthy habits that you have automatically adopted and some healthy habits that you should work on choosing before your thirties.
For example, by drinking less alcohol, spending less money on worthless crap and more time on the things that matter, you’re more likely to achieve your goals and lead a happy and more fulfilling lifestyle.
Workout Your Mind
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt as a twenty-something-year-old, it’s that your mind is a valuable tool and learning to master it is essential. I have never been a yoga fan, but after a stressful year, I needed something to decrease stress levels.
Yoga and meditation can help you by lowering your stress levels and boost brainpower. Not only do poses like downward dogs relax and de-stress, but they may increase brain function and blood circulation to the face, which means glowing skin!
Drink More Water
You’re sick of hearing it I know, me too, but not drinking enough water is aging you!
One 2012 study conducted with a group of 25 young women found that even mild dehydration, a result of not drinking enough fluids can generate adverse changes in mood, vigour, and fatigue. Along with increased headaches and difficulty concentrating among young women.
According to the U.S. Institute of Medicine, the generally recommended amounts for daily water consumption, including from beverages and food, are 2.7 litres (91 ounces) for women and 3.7 litres (125 ounces) for men. Click here to do your research.
Take Care of your Skin
If you haven’t already, it’s time to put a serious skincare routine in place. Things like making sure you take off your makeup every night, wearing SPF 50+ and double-cleansing your skin. Read how to layer your skincare in the right order here: How To Layer Skincare | Skincare Routine
You want to find the right skincare regime to nourish your skin. It is your bodies largest organ after all.
Become More Minimalistic
A healthy habit to adopt in your twenties is to start eating at home more often and ordering food less. It’s so easy to jump onto our phone and have food on the way within seconds. However, If you can cook the majority of your meals from home, then you will be saving truckloads of money and eating more nutritious foods.
You can cook and eat the majority of your meals from home by meal prepping. Which is usually a lot healthier for your body and the extra money can be put towards a new car, your next trip to Japan or even a house deposit!
Do More of What You Love
It’s so important to do the things we love, and with the people we love. If there’s something or someone in your life that no longer makes you happy or fulfils you, you need to make some changes.
Get Amongst Nature
There’s nothing worse than sitting at a desk in a stuffy office all day. Not only for your bodies health but also for your mental health. Even if you have a spare 10 minutes, get outdoors and try to connect with nature.
Rest Your Body/Mind
I don’t know about you, but I need a minimum of 8 hours of sleep to function. Too much more or little than that, and I’m tired and not living my best life. Find your sleeping sweet spot and try to stick to that every night. So turn Netflix autoplay off and get your beauty sleep.
