5 Things All Twentysomethings Should Do Before 2017
#1 Take a break from social media
Addicted to social media? Sometimes you won’t even realise it. This is what you need to know, however: It isn’t all that important to stay updated on every little thing your friends or complete strangers are up to. Take a break from your Facebook and Instagram feeds. Stay away from your Snapchat filters. Pick up a good book and spend the day reading, or actually hang out with your friends over coffee instead.
#2 Sign up for enrichment classes
At some point, you must have thought of learning something, be it a new sport, cooking or even a foreign language. If you’ve done nothing about it, it’s time to stop procrastinating and get started! For me, it’s Muay Thai and French lessons come 2017!
#3 Travel solo
There is never a perfect time to go for a holiday – go whenever you think you should. Or so my friend says. And if you’ve never travelled solo, maybe it’s time to do so as a mature adult! Be open and talk to people you meet (sensibly of course). In return, you may very well be rewarded with delightful conversations and novel experiences.
#4 Watch TV with your family
When was the last time you lounged on your sofa to catch a really good TV show with your loved ones? With our laptops and smartphones, we may have forgotten the days where we’d all gather to catch something together. Take a day to browse through the programme schedule and talk to your family members again – I’m sure some of us haven’t done so in a while.
#5 Go through photos taken in 2016
It may not sound like much, but looking back at your achievements and memories will serve as a reminder to do even better next year. And if there isn’t much to look back on, perhaps it’s a timely reminder to set aside time for your loved ones, and to plan your goals for 2017 proper.
Have a wonderful and fruitful year ahead!
