10 Lessons To Learn Before You Turn 30

20s are spent enjoying the first job, the first paycheck with parties, outings and a little indulgence. While all this is essential, now’s the time to start saving your hard-earned money. If marriage is on your mind, start saving for the wedding, honeymoon and your future together.

1. Start Saving Money

Move and live in a city other than the one you grew up in. After turning 30, you are too tied down to pick up everything and move somewhere new. Everyone should do it for at least a year, and the chances that you will do it after 30 are pretty slim.

2. Live In A New Place

The chance to develop good eating and exercise habits is here and you must seize it. The human body seems indestructible when you are young, but reality sets in the older you get. Remember the good old days of hangover-free weekends after a night of drinking?

7. Stop With The ‘Log Kya Kahenge

Indians, more often than not, are forced to respect people because of their age, stature, place in society and more. Many times, this and a ton of other influences erase your personal boundaries and people can become invasive.

8. Set Up Boundaries

There is no rulebook for life, despite what society tells you. The pressure to do certain things at a certain age or achieve gender-specific goals is not at all valid. There is no competition in life and you will learn this at 30.
