Welcome to the 30's club! Or if you aren't here yet, congrats on getting a head start for that part of your life!
It can be fascinating (or surprising) to experience the 30's. Your health might change, but you'll hopefully feel settled and focused in your vision, personal and work life. When you need extra inspiration
- What types of skill(s) do you need for a job or position you want? Make it a reality!
- We all know about how great worldwide travel is/would be, but have you explored all of your city/state/local area?
- Get outside regularly
- Cultivate a listening ear and the ability to ask good questions
- In a world where the online space is very common, invite people into your home on a regular basis, do real life with real people
- Mentor and be mentored
- Pick up a hobby you enjoyed as a kid or teen
- Learn something (or a few somethings) new and enjoy the messy process of learning.
- Teach a hobby, take someone "under your wing" and watch them thrive!
- Study how the body works. Once you have a basic understanding of how the different parts work together, it's easier to make healthy choices.
- Research vitamins: they aren't all made the same and don't all work the same for every person. We also don't get everything we need from food anymore, so supplements are helpful.
- Make your own food & snacks: splurging is fun, but making your own is usually healthier, can be fun, and is generally budget-friendly
- Hydrate: I like to add flavored hemp to water. Yum :)
- Sleep: neat tip: the body processes thoughts, toxins, etc while you sleep. It's a really necessary "vitamin" in and of itself!
- Exercise for your body type AND to support where your health is right now.
- Have healthcare professionals that listen to you (chiropractors and functional medicine docs are a great place to start!)
- Start a 'retirement' fund, even if you don't plan to retire!
- Get a financial coach (mine costs $40 a year! I'm happy to share more info!)
- Give regularly. Sometimes the smallest amounts make the biggest difference! It's a blessing to invest in someone's music lessons for 6 months, or a food delivery service, etc.
- Keep growing spiritually (your relationship with the Lord is the most important one you'll ever have)
- Serve your church
- Send encouraging cards letting people know where you see the Lord working in their lives
- List the jobs you would enjoy. Try to get one or two!
- Check out www.rover.com if you enjoy pets but can't have one right now
- Look into online work as a part time VA
- Research network marketing. One thing may lead to another and connect you with work or a passion project that you really want! Feel free to ask me what kind of questions are good to ask :)
Blogging is one of my favorite things because it's a quiet spot in the midst of a busy online world. You get to enjoy posts that you can find easily, free downloads as I roll them out, and the freedom to connect with me personally, if you'd like!
I picked Allie Dean as a photography business name a couple years ago, using my nickname and my grandfather's middle name as inspiration. He enjoyed photography, developing film in the darkroom, entering contests, and traveling the world with his camera. In later years he had to stop due to partial blindness, and I picked it up and have carried it on. We never got to shoot together, but I think he'd be impressed with the digital age and would have dived right into using all the things!
