Investing in yourself doesn’t always have to be about spending money.
In fact, it shouldn’t be.
There are many powerful and valuable ways we can all invest in ourselves each day to begin establishing what we want the rest of our lives to be. Everyone can and should take their own approaches when investing in themselves but one thing is certain, you must invest in yourself.
I have compiled a list of ways I think are a great starting tool to invest in yourself during your twenties. These methods can be utilized in several beneficial ways starting TODAY.
1. Stop caring so much about what other people think of you
One of my personal favorite ways of investing in myself 😉
2. Take A Course for Free Online or Learn A New Skill
Don’t let being in college be your excuse not to do this!
3. Get out of any toxic place you are in; a relationship, a friendship, etc.
Do it now, do not waste anymore more of your precious time.
4. Organize Your Living Area
Having a cluttered living space can hinder your ability to focus which can increase your stress.
5. Start working out or switch up your current workout routine
There are so many good free workout videos online you can use. You should never let money be your reason for not having a healthy work out routine.
6. Set Realistic and Attainable Long-Term Goals
Setting goals that are realistic and attainable is so important, but you also should not sell yourself short when setting goals.
7. Set Short-Term Goals
Short-term goals keep up your level of happiness because you can see results quicker so yes, these are important as well.
8. Never Stop Learning
Even if you hate or hated school, it’s essential to find things you enjoy learning about. This can help you so much later on in life.
9. Start truly Setting Standards for Yourself and Your Relationships
This applies to friendships as well. There is no excuse to treat yourself poorly or be around someone who treats you badly.
These all are valuable lessons to learn and know like the back of your hand.
They’re important in your twenties to help you set the path of what you want the rest of your life to reflect. It will not just happen overnight.
