5 Things You Need to Know Before You Turn 30

by Andrea Watson | November 3rd, 2020

Hello dear readers, and welcome back to the blog. Today I’m going to talk about some things that I wish I knew before I turned 30. Heck, some of them I wish I knew before I turned 18. Anyway, I think these are some important things to know about, and you don’t want to do it the hard way. Why do I say 30 specifically? Read on.

So life goes at a fast pace and when you are young, you have the energy to keep up. You’re running along, working, having a social life, maybe partying a bit…and then something tragic happens. Your biological clock ticks one final time for 29 and then you turn 30. At that point, for no reason I can fathom, it’s like you suddenly hit a wall, stick there for a minute, then slowly ooze your way down to the floor.

You try to get up and run again, but you just can’t. It’s like you have been suddenly robbed of vitality. Sure, you can go…but can you ever really run along at the pace of life like you used to, and sustain that momentum? The answer is “not without a buttload of meth”. Watch this awesome video. For serious, it’s funny and scary at the same time. Go on, click it.

Terrifying? Yeah it is! That’s why it’s important that you get these few things down pat before the big day arrives. Cause this ain’t no BS, baby. So what is it that’s so important? Keep going, I’m getting to the point.

Stay Fit

This is a big one. When I was younger, I did a LOT of yoga. Like, every day. When I turned 30, it suddenly became a lot more difficult for me to finish the routines I used to do in a snap. Then when I hit 35, I finally admitted to myself it would never be the same again. It is so important to exercise. Start, like, yesterday. If you already do, then don’t quit! It’s like storing youth in a bank for later. The fitter you are now, the longer you will stay fit as you start to age.

Eat Right

Break those bad eating habits now, while you still can. Your body (especially if you are a woman) will begin to fill out and settle into itself on it’s own. You will gain weight because your metabolism will slow down. You will require less food overall. This is a natural thing. But if you don’t want to keep getting bigger and bigger every year, watch what you eat now and develop some healthy habits.

Procreate Mindfully

I had my first child when I was 19 and I had my last when I was 31. It was a lot easier to keep up with my oldest daughter than it is with my youngest son. Man, I’m turned every day, and he’s still only 8! I’m not saying to have kids when you are super young, like I did. I’m just saying that if you want children, plan for them accordingly. Don’t wait until after you hit that wall. You may be in for a rough time if you do.

Prepare to Have no Life

As you age, your social construct naturally changes. Friends move on and go away as you and they both move steadily toward self-actualization. 30 is when you start to settle down and really consider your life goals and the path you’re on. You will likely make some changes that come naturally, and reducing and changing your social circles is part of that. It’s okay. Because as you grow, you will want to make new friends anyway.

Take it Easy

This is important. As you slow down, the passage of time will speed up. You will notice that the years seem to fly by. This is the time to savor every experience. What you do, see, hear, taste, smell, touch-all of it should be taken in with appreciation. If you don’t slow down to really experience everything, then you will miss out on what life really is and grow old before you know it.

So there it is-my list of suggestions. I didn’t mean to scare you, I just thought you should know that life changes in unexpected ways as you get older. Turning 30 is a milestone in life. Don’t let it trip you up, let it lift you up. Climb the wall instead of smacking into it. Don’t be the ooze. Enjoy youth while you can and be aware of what the future may hold for you mentally and physically. Until next time, loves.

  1. I agree with this list… I didn’t realize most of them until I was 40. I had my first baby at 30 and it was difficult. My body didn’t bounce back as easily as others. Nutrition and exercise are huge. You can feel great in your 30’s but you need to be mindful of your habits. 🙂
