Ten things to master during your 30's
Unsurprisingly, people tend to continuously seek for affordable property that brings a more relaxing and peaceful lifestyle. A recent research in 2021 shows that, more than a quarter Australians have relocated interstate, with sunny Queensland (32.0%) being the most popular relocation destination, followed by New South Wales (26.9%) and then Victoria (17.1%). Those who have made the interstate move are typically younger with an average age of 41. The strongest motivations for moving include the cost of living (26.2%), a quieter lifestyle (24.7%) or an investment opportunity (21.6%).
Through your ups and downs, you learn from experiences that help you along the way. Here are a few things you could potentially tick of before entering your 30s.
Learn a new language
Whether you decide to travel, land a dream job abroad, or even find true love with a non-English speaker, it always pays off to learn a second language.
Write the perfect resume
After finding your feet in your 20s, now is a great time to buckle down and make the most of all the experience you've gained. Keep your resume appealing with some of these common industry tips, and don't forget to list your multilingual skills if you followed our previous tip!
Learn to cook
We're all guilty of the occasional take-out run, especially with options like Uber Eats or Menu Log just a few taps away. While eating out might not be as bad as it's talked up to be, there's a lot to gain by learning to cook a healthy and balanced meal for yourself.
Baby-proof your home
Even if you don't plan on starting a family, this is the time when many of our generational friends or siblings will decide to take the plunge for themselves. Having your home set up for kids will help avoid any nasty accidents and also give your parent-friends a reason to visit more often.
Go to bed at the same time every night
Research suggests people with an irregular bedtime schedule may experience poor sleep quality, and it may be inferred that going to bed at the same time every night could lead to better sleep, leaving you more refreshed and less tired every morning.
Find a mentor
Gaining insight from an older and more experienced colleague can give us a huge head-start in life, whether it's in our careers, relationships, or personal health. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for guidance from anyone you know.
Overcome a fear
We all have our personal fears no matter how quirky or irrational they might seem. Learning to overcome them is more about the journey rather than the destination. It's about gaining the confidence to leave your comfort zone and preparing for any unexpected challenges in the future.
Find your go-to stress relief
Even on the best of days, many of us feel burned out from the daily grind so it's important to have a strategy to blow off that extra steam once in a while.
Declutter your home
Most of us are avoiding the housing bubble by opting for smaller options like granny flats, tiny homes, or apartments, but these don't come with a garage or backyard where you can horde unused items.
Start taking your health seriously
It's normal to make the most our 20s by taking risks or staying out all night, but don't let this attitude follow you into the next decade of your life. There comes a time when we all need to think about our future health and take steps to improve it.
