Adulthood can come like a big slap in the face. One day you are sitting at home contemplating a night out with the girls, and the next day you are thinking of buying a house and starting a family. During your twenties and thirties your life radically changes. You are no longer carefree and naive, you become seasoned and hardened to the world. As an adult you have to perform a juggling act of many things,and how we manage it can affect our quality of life. Here are some top tips for juggling adulthood this year.
Make a career for yourself
As an adult you want to be able to say that you achieved something for yourself, and a career can be the perfect way to do that. We all work for money, however we can also work for happiness and our passions. Find a job which you enjoy such as business and make sure you spend your life honing in business skills, taking courses such as this management masters, and spend your life trying to achieve the best you can for yourself and for your family. Make sure you choose a job you love and you won’t feel like it is a job.
Work isn’t everything
As much as work makes the world go round, it isn’t all there is to life. Work is work and home is life, and you want to make sure that you spend enough time living your social life and home life as you can. When you finish work at the end of the week don’t look at anything again until Monday. The same goes for the evenings, and you should spend your down time doing what you love and relaxing with the people you love.
Make time for family
Family is everything. If you didn’t have family or friends to spend your life with then you would be very lonely. To make sure you can keep these relationships with the people you love you need to spend time with them. You could have a family get together every month where you can see everyone, and then any time to get to see them between this is a bonus. The same goes for your friends, if you make time for them they will be with you for life.
Make a chore schedule
No one enjoys doing jobs around the house, and we often feel as if we spend most of our weekends catching up on chores from the week. However, to make sure your home stays clean and tidy all year long you can actually think about creating a schedule. For example, the home doesn’t need to be vacuumed each day, so you can instead do it once a week. You can carry out washing loads twice a week, clean the bathroom once a week and think about all of the other niggly jobs you have. Making a schedule and popping it on the fridge will keep you reminded and organised.
