Invest in Traveling during your Mid-20s.

3. Invest in Traveling

       St. Augustine said “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. The world is huge. This means that your life was not intended to be lived inside a little bubble called your comfort zone. Travel changes you in a way only it can. It can widen your perspective and change how you view the world. You can grow a deeper appreciation for different cultures, thus developing how you understand and empathize with other people. It will give you experiences you will never forget, and you’ll always have a fantastic story to tell. At your mid-20s, you are in the best possible place in your life to travel. You have the income to support it, the adventure seeking enthusiasm to encourage it, the freedom to actually do it and lastly, the energy to survive it. Travel now or you’ll regret later. 

4. Invest in Your Relationships

       It may come as a surprise but the key to a long and fulfilling life is not money, fame nor success. Studies suggest that to live a satisfying life, you must have good relationships with other people. Researcher George Vaillant, when asked what he had learned from the study, responded “The only thing that really matters in life are your relationships to other people”. So invest on your relationships. Build strong connections with your family, friends and the community. Isolating yourself from others could lead to loneliness in the future.

You are the best investment you can make during your mid-20s.

5. Invest in Yourself

With your stress induced days on top of other priorities, you tend to forget about ourselves. All that’s running on your mind is work, responsibilities, bills, work, did I mention work? Investing in yourself is more important than you think. It unconsciously reaffirms ourselves that we are worth spending money on and that we believe in our own abilities. Allot money to spend on things you enjoy and things you want to achieve. Invest time in developing your talents and skills. Want to get a Master’s Degree? Go for it. Love cooking? Enroll in a cooking class. Want to be fit? Join a gym. There are always more ways to self-improvement and to be the best version of yourself. Remember that the best investment you can make in your life is YOU. Invest in you, if you won’t, no one else will. 

 Investing in money during your mid-20s is great but there are other things in life that are worth investing on too. Invest wisely!
