20s is the period we all come out of our comfort zones and start living our lives. We move out of our homes, get a new job, a new place, the list goes on…! 20s is the time to live our lives to the fullest and check off things from our bucket list. Are you feeling lost on the things to do and make a memory of in your 20s? Fret not, we have come up with a list of 10 milestones to achieve in your 20s! Read On!
1. Dare to do something for the first time
We all have something that we want to try our hand at. It could be anything from trying an adventure sport like paragliding, to learning to play an instrument, a dance form, or even reading an entire book! At times it could be the fear of failure that stops us.
As the famous advertisement says ‘Dar ke aage jeet hai’. So let’s face those fears head on and experience the wonderful feeling that we get on accomplishing our task. Trust us, it’s totally worth it 👍
2. Be Independent
We all land up on our first job in our 20s. Take your time to figure it all out and choose wisely. You wouldn’t want to end with with a job that you hate. That said, you would definitely be on cloud 9 when you start earning on your own and be financially independent. Liberation is happiness.
3. Plan Your Budget
We all get carried away and splurge when we start earning. While it is important to have fun, it is also equally important to save. We suggest you create a monthly budget.
Set apart a sum for your rent, food, decide how much you want to save and spend the rest for shopping and entertainment.
4. Go Places
Life is all about its memories. The people, the places and the experiences are something we cannot replace. 20s would be a perfect time to travel by yourself. Explore new places and become a new you. Let each place bring out a new different version of you.
5. Be Responsible
We are supposed to be mature and responsible as we get older. Mostly we feel like a grown up child in our 20s. Taking care of someone other than ourselves naturally makes one responsible and that’s why adopting a pet is a good idea at this age. Not a fan of animals? Why not give a shot at gardening? 😉
6. Try A Blind Date
It is all about having a bit faith and blind dates are all about faith. We believe it is something everyone must give a shot it. It lets you meet new people and make a few friends. You never know, you might even find the love of your life or if not make you realise that being single isn’t so bad.
7. Cook A Meal
We are definitely against the idea that it is a woman’s job to cook. Yet, cooking would definitely help us to survive and save some money. Try your hand at cooking and who knows you might even find a new passion.
8. Hello Diary
Keep a track of your daily activities by jotting them down in your journal. The moment of the day, the place you went to, that great movie you saw. Pour your heart out , your feelings and the things that you are grateful for and out. Years down the line, it will reflect your journey as a person and brick back moments that faded from your memory.
9. Try A New Look
Everyone has their own style. It’s not a very good thing to be greeted by you look the same. Create a different outlook by opting for that daring lip colour, hairstyle, haircut or maybe even try and break a few fashion rules.
10. Be Caring
In today’s fast moving world, it is important that we care. Take some time out of our busy lives and spend some time with your family. Try and get involved in a few charity works and get to know the real world out there. Compassion is a definite milestone everyone must achieve in their 20s.
