Entering your thirties has some new challenges, like greying hair and new wrinkles, but it also has some advantages, like a stronger sense of self and possibly a bit more financial security. Here are a few ideas to help you make the most of your thirties.
Buy a Classic Car
Why wait until you are having a midlife crisis to invest in a cool older car? Unlike the vast majority of vehicles, which begin to lose value as soon as you drive them off the lot, classic cars get more valuable over the years.
If you buy a car that needs some work, get it in good condition, and keep it that way, you are very likely to see a return on the investment if you ever decide to sell. You can make a good investment at the same time as you get to enjoy driving a very cool car.
Don’t be concerned if you are not a mechanic. Quality classic auto body restoration can get an older car in great working order. They can also help you to maintain it over time so that you’ll feel confident in being able to make a return on your investment.
Update Your Wardrobe
Now is the perfect time to look at everything you own with some criticism. If you have some less than flattering styles still hanging around your wardrobe from college or high school phases, now is the time to say your goodbyes.
This is the perfect time to reinvent yourself. You don’t want to feel stuck in the past as you move out of your twenties. This does not mean that you need to buy only the most boring and mature outfits to replace what you’ve gotten rid of. Have fun experimenting with new styles and trying new things to match your evolving personality.
If there have been some less-than-flattering changes from your twenties, like a little less hair or a little more weight, now is a good time to be honest in addressing these issues with your wardrobe choices.
Take Up Gardening
You are likely to find your thirties stressful in brand new ways. At the same time, for many people, the thirties are when you can finally begin to settle down a little bit, although you may not be quite ready to commit to a pet or partner just yet.
Whether you maintain a couple of house plants in your apartment or try your hand at a vegetable garden, gardening can be therapeutic, let you ease into caregiving, and be a good reminder to get out and be a bit more active.
Have Fun Moving Into Your Thirties
It can be intimidating to step out of your twenties and into what is often perceived as greater responsibility and less fun in your thirties. However, your thirties also offer plenty of opportunities for you to try new things, reinvent yourself, and have a lot of fun.
Take advantage of this opportunity to make some changes, invest in something new, and begin to shape yourself into the person you want to be.
