They say hindsight is 20/20. As we get older, we certainly do seem to gain a better perspective of things. Sometimes this can lead to regrets when we blame our youthful naivety on the problems we have today. Perhaps there are a few things you wish you had done when you were younger? Here are just a few of the ones that might crop up in the next few years!
When times get tough, we all wish we had put away some of that money we spent on nights out, console games, and clothing. Of course, when we were young, free and single, we had nothing else to spend the money on! Now you’re saving up to start a family, or even to buy a house, and worrying if you’ll ever make it. You will, and you still have time. Make a clear plan and budget meticulously. Every penny counts, and you’re far more willing to make a few sacrifices now you’re older and wiser.
You might have enjoyed partying a lot in your youth. You might even have got away with eating junk food seven nights a week. Now you’re older chances are you fear you couldn’t get away with a sniff of chocolate or donuts anymore. It’s never too late to get back on track. You can even get your teeth back on track. Wish you’d been brave enough for braces? These days adults can have invisible braces to straighten up their teeth. So go on. Chuck out the junk and start a healthy living plan. Get the body you want and the health you need.
