7 things you should do in your 20's

15 June 2015, 09:07 Winnie Mwirikia

Here are 7 things you should do in your 20's:

1. Invest in real and worthy friendships

Figure out who you can truly count on when in need and invest your time in those friendships. Hang out with that person who genuinely cares about you even when you're feeling like garbage because they'll be the ones who still care 20 years from now.

2. Learn how to cook or marry someone who knows

You can't go through life eating in restaurants. It's great for you to just take a simple cooking class, something to get you started.

3. Drink enough water and support your skin's structure

The difference water makes on your skin and body is huge. Take care of your skin so it won't fall when you turn 30. Trust me, if you take care of your skin, you'll look the youngest of your girlfriends at your 20-year reunion when everyone else will look like they are 40 years! Also, wear sunscreen so you don't look like a leather bag when you're in your late 30s and beyond. It will protect you from the sun rays which can make you age faster.

4. Take career risks

You hate what you're doing and want to try something new, but afraid you won't make any money? You don’t have kids to feed or care of so jump off the cliff and go for what you want.

5. Travel

Go to as many places as possible. It is pretty much fun because you might not get the chance again when you grow older and have a lot of responsibilities from your career and family. If in future you need to unwind, you already have a favorite place in mind.

6. Don’t stress about relationships

Stress is bad for your health. Date around and have lots of sex or be single for long stretches of time. Enjoy this time to do whatever you want without stressing about your relationship status; don't stress about a husband. It'll happen when it's meant to and you'll be so glad you didn't spend all your time stressing about it.

7. Read

Read every day; knowledge about the world is an asset and doesn't hurt. You need to be well informed to survive, so get started now. It doesn't have to be painful; just read something every day about a topic that interests you.
