Welcome Back Boo!

As a twenty-something year old, you are officially an adult, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you feel like one. Sure, you’ve finished university, or are close to finishing, and you can drink, and drive, and get a credit card, which leaves you feeling pretty close to what an “adult” is supposed to be. But then you look around and see people your age who clearly have their stuff together, and you just don’t. It’s normal to feel this way from time to time, but rather than stew in these feelings, it’s vital that you do what you can to resolve them. Here are six things you can do. Okay, lets do it! 

  1. Be Committed

If you want to be a real adult, then you’ve got to stop flaking out when you’ve made a commitment. It doesn’t matter whether this is a commitment to yourself, such as decorating your home, or someone else, such as plans with a friend; If you’ve said that you’re going to do something, unless you have a really good reason, you need to do it.

  1. Drink Responsibly

Although drinking is supposed to be an adult thing, if you’re really honest, then you’ll probably be able to come up with countless times before the age of eighteen when you’ve tried alcohol. As an adult, you should now know how to be responsible around alcohol, which means knowing your limits and not getting behind the wheel after a drink.


  1. Start Saving

When you’re in your twenties, you tend to have fewer responsibilities than you do later in life. This gives you the unique opportunity to get your finances together while you’ve got spare cash. You can use this time to build your emergency fund and start saving for your retirement so that you won’t have to worry about money when you’re a little bit older.


  1. Be Healthy

Without your health, you have nothing, so start taking steps to improve it now. You could start by buying tickets to sporting events to get you interested in sports and help you to find a physical activity you enjoy doing. You should also cut down on the amount of junk food you eat, and try cooking more nutritious meals.

  1. Cook Yourself

Of course, cooking nutritious meals is pretty difficult if you don’t know how to cook, so start learning now. You can begin by looking up a few simple recipes and try those out, and then slowly work your way up to more complicated ones that require more skills. You may never be Jamie Oliver, but you’ll be able to fend for yourself at least.


  1. Be Honest

There are few things more childish than lying. Of course, there are circumstances where white lies might seem like the best option, but being honest with yourself and others is always the best and most grown-up course of action. It might not be the easy option, but it truly is the best decision for everyone involved.


Welp! That’s it! Learning to be a real adult is rarely an easy process, and it certainly won’t happen overnight, but if you follow this advice, then you’ll soon start to notice yourself becoming the person you’ve always wanted to be. 

Remember to keep on slaying,

See you next time xoxo
