1. Become Responsible
First, be responsible for your life and for everything that happens in it. If something goes wrong it is only your problem. Do not put the responsibility for your mistakes on your parents’ or friends’ shoulders. Realize that you are the only ruler of your destiny and your fortune master. It is difficult at first, but then the complaints about others will disappear. This is the way to save time for important actions.
2. Learn to Make Something with Your Own Hands
Such an occupation is rather relaxing. It could be origami, creating bijouterie or even playing on certain music instruments. There are a lot of video lessons online to help you learn a new useful hobby. In addition, the presence of a hobby does not allow the brain to relax and lose information previously received. Thus, you remain in a cerebral tone and do not fall out of reality even when you have a rest.
3. Be a Friend to Your Parents
Yes, of course, our friends play a great role in our lives, but the first and the best advisors are our parents. Try to improve your relationship with them if it needs some fixing. Your mom and dad love you the most, and that is why you should forgive them if they care too much sometimes. Tell them more often that they should trust you because you have already gathered some life experience of your own.
4. Visit Other Countries
It does not really count if you were there with your parents. Nowadays borders are open for young people. You can go for some adventure and travel on your own or win a grant for studying in a different country. It is rather mind-opening and worldview-widening experience. You can also use discounts, special offers or simply buy your tickets in cheap bus companies.
5. Keep Improving
It is worth to have a subject which makes you curious and about which you can speak for hours. It may be contemporary art, Japanese literature or the history of the Second World War. In order to have such a subject, you should learn more about it. Do not be lazy to do it. Feed your brain with knowledge.
6. Create Your Own Recipe for a Good Mood
Try to always be in a good mood no matter what the weather is outside or what reverse you are suffering right now. Learn to find a positive side in every situation. You can make up your own ritual which will secure your good mood. For example, it could be a cup of your favorite coffee.
7. Love Yourself
It is probably the most vital thing to do and to realize before you are twenty. You are unique. Love yourself the way you are. Do not chase after doubtful icons and idols. Accept yourself for who you are and the whole world will do the same.
