Self-Improvement

30 Habits To Start When You’re 30

A few days ago, I turned 30. And just like that, I felt that I stopped being young and I started thinking of becoming a serious adult. In my 20s, I had high expectations and goals that I should reach by the time I turned 30. And now that I am, most of the goals that I planned to achieve are still halfway through. I love creating lists of habits, but I never had been consistent to reach the goal.

My husband told me that, “Self-improvement is a state of mind.” It is not something that we ought to do and stop when we have completed the task. It is something different. It is not simply having the effort or motivation to start it, and neither the joy of completing it. But rather a constant and persistent state of mind of pursuing to succeed beyond your limit and capabilities; to strive to be better than yesterday. Habits are not an accomplishment rather a continuous process of self-improvement even if that improvement is .01%.

I remember telling him, that I will start to do regular exercises because I wanted to become physically fit; and I did. Along the way, I realized I never went beyond what I was capable of. I started with 20 crunches daily for a month but never raised the bar as it became my comfort zone. In a way it made the habit stagnant and self-improvement to a halt. I’m not saying that it is unacceptable, although there is a point and duration in which our being lazy or even fear of failure deter us from seeing what we truly are capable of doing.

It is never too late to start. Whether you are 30 or 40, or even 60, it doesn’t matter as long as you strive to better yourself than you were yesterday. So, I have listed different habits in no particular order that may help you start promote wellness in every aspect of your lives. These habits are mostly self-explanatory.
