9 Valuable Ways You Can Invest in Yourself During Your Twenties

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.Β 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 πŸ˜‰

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 AreaΒ 

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.Β 

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.Β

    I’m nowhere near 20 but I find this very helpful πŸ™‚

  • One thing I wish I had done differently in my 20s is literally investing! I could be sitting on a nest egg now that I’m 40. I made a mistake as a SAHM of not setting money aside early on.

  • Awesome tips – I love how they weren’t about money! I think it is so good to invest in new experiences too, even if it is just walking to work a different way one morning. It keeps things fresh and gives you new inspiration!

    • Thank you! I think it’s so important to remember that we can invest in ourselves everyday and it doesn’t have to mean spending lots of money.
      I love that! New experiences keeps life fun. Great point. πŸ™‚


  • These are all such great points that it’s hard to pick a favorite. I like setting short-term goals, but I think I like how you put learning so high on the list the most. We should never stop investing in our own skills and abilities.

    • Thank you!! πŸ™‚ Investing in learning is truly one of the best things we can do for ourselves!
      I’m glad you liked my points.


  • These are great! I would also say don’t be afraid to dream big and just go for whatever that “it” is.
