Life in your 20’s truly preps you for life in your 30’s.
All of the bad times, good times, lessons, missed opportunities, new opportunities molds us into the women we are today.
What major habits do we recommend that you learn (and ditch) for mastering life in your 30’s?

Add this to your cool ideas bucket list and make a goal to travel as often as you can. This doesn’t mean you have to take a 15 hour flight to get to your destination. Take a road trip 2 towns over to go somewhere different and see something different.
Also, try to plan one major vacation a year, even if that means taking a solo trip. While I’m not a major traveler ( I am terrified of flying, any tips?) it’s no secret that going to new places and experiencing new things can change your mindset and allow you to open your eyes to new things.
Doesn’t sound too sexy, I get it, but it’s reality. I’ve always hated going to the doctor, but upon my approach to age 30 I had to get over it and realize that checking in on my body once a year doesn’t take much out of me. Make this a habit and go annually.
Do What Makes You Happy
I mentioned this as one of the tips in “10 Things I Wish I Knew Before 30“. It’s worth mentioning it as a goal because we only get one life so you should always, always do what makes you happy, whatever that may be. You (no one else) is responsible for your happiness. If you don’t take control of your own happiness in your 30s, who will?
Be Kind – Everyone is Fighting Some Battle
I truly believe in good karma and bad karma. No matter how bad your day or situation is I can almost guarantee that someone else is facing something worse. Spread kindness – not only does it transfer to other people, but being kind and having a positive attitude is great for your mental state.
Nothing new here, but making this a habit is a must. It’s the key to keeping yourself looking and feeling healthy. If for nothing else, working out releases endorphins ultimately making you happy, improves your mood and clears your mind.
Closer to my 30s I became aware of the body changes at 30 and wanted to improve my lifestyle. I will admit I have gotten caught up in the organic food craze. However, I do feel like a lot of advertisers have gotten ahold of this market so I do worry about the validity of everything organic. While I’m in the discovery phase of organic, vegan etc. ultimately, the goal I try to put forth is to make the best food choices I can with the knowledge I have. Don’t get me wrong, no one is perfect and cheat meals are welcome here! I’ve found when I don’t allow myself to cheat from time to time, I’ll completely eat bad for a week and set myself back.
Have Faith & Believe
Whether you believe in God or positive vibes or energy from the universe just think positive thoughts. Stop thinking about the tough times in your 20s! Being in your 30s, you now know that negativity will only bring you down.
You have all of the control over what you tell yourself and what you believe based on the way you choose to think.
