From experience, you might have lived through a thing or two that you wish someone would have warned you about or helped to guide you with some words of wisdom. A recent online poll asked users to share their best advice for young adults; here are some of the top-voted responses.

1. Create Healthy Habits

A user said, “Trying to get into exercise and a healthy diet when you are overweight and 30+ made me curse my younger self for not getting into better habits earlier.”

2. Practice Discipline

“Whatever habits you form in your 20s might end up getting stuck with you for the rest of your life. So, be careful what you do; your brain doesn’t fully develop until you’re like 25,” a user said.

3. Take Your Time

A user said, “Don’t jump into marriage just because everybody else around you seems to be. If you found the love of your life, go for it. Just make sure you’re getting married for the right reasons.”

4. Walk Away

“It doesn’t matter how much time and effort you have invested in something (job, relationship, etc.); you can always walk away if the situation is no longer healthy. You don’t need to stay longer for fear of the time already invested being “wasted,” someone said.

5. Care Good Care of Your Teeth

“Take care of your teeth. They are as healthy as they will ever be. Teeth pain is no joke. On top of that, they are expensive to fix later in life,” someone said.

6. You’re Still Young

“A lot of people seem to think that they are getting old as they approach their mid-20s. There is no reason to be caught up in that. In our 20s, we are still very young. Our brain is still developing until we are 25. And we still have a lot of life left to live after we turn 30,” someone shared.

7. Start Saving Now

“Open a Roth IRA and start putting money into it TODAY. Doesn’t matter the amount; anything you’re able to do will be hugely beneficial,” someone said.

8. Learn

Someone said, “Keep up with your old hobbies and interests and pick up new ones. Takes classes, free ones, and pays for those you can afford. Join groups for people with your interests so you can learn from them and learn from teaching them.”

9. Get Regular Check-ups

Someone shared, “Get a primary care doctor and start seeing them for regular checkups (every six months). Hopefully, you won’t have any major medical issues, but if you do, catching things early makes a huge difference.”

10. Being Sober

“Being completely sober. Just because you don’t have any addictions doesn’t make you a better person than anyone else,” someone said.

11. Don’t Procrastinate

“Don’t put off things that you really want to do! You might think that you have time, “Oh, I’ll just do that later.” No, do it now bc sometimes later ends up being never,” a user said.

12. Take Your Time

Someone said, “You don’t need to finish school requirements in the most optimum and timely manner. Everyone experiences a different journey in life, and that is okay. Take a summer off, register for part-time classes, go on vacation, get some work and life experience, plan out concretely where you want to go and double down on those goals.”

13. Protect Your Skin

A user shared, “Don’t spend too much time in the sun or wear really great sunscreen. Your 40-year-old self will thank you.”

14. Cut Toxicity

Someone said, “Do that thing that you keep thinking about doing. Keep away from toxic people. They rob your time and energy; it’s not worth it.”

15. Don’t Worry

One user offered, “Stop worrying what other people think of you. The amount of energy that is spent on “Am I cool enough? Is this a cringe thing to like? I didn’t get the clout I wanted”, will waste your life.”
