Double win. Throughout our teens and early twenties, we are intertwined in complex and ever-changing female friendships. By 30, you should know who is really on your team, and who really needs to go. Your sanity will thank you later. Learn to be kind to yourself, take constructive criticism in stride, and be confident in your abilities.
There is something that all of us could benefit from letting go. Getting close with your mom, or another older female family member or friend, can be an enlightening and joyous bonding experience.

Saying "thank you" and "well done" to yourself will always feel good and it's something we always tend to neglect. You deserve it. We live in a world of hurt, pain, and suffering. Giving your money is one thing, but giving time and human effort is another. Have a look at some volunteering opportunities or maybe donate your time on Christmas day to look after the homeless or less fortunate.
If you have a load of canned food in your cupboard that's been there six months, go give it to the nearest foodbank. If you have too many clothes, make room in that wardrobe and give them to someone who really needs a lift. Buy from charity shops. If you're going abroad, see if you can help out at sanctuaries and schools. It really DOES make a difference and you will feel completely amazing. It's never too late to start habits that help humanity. If you find yourself huffing and puffing up a flight of stairs, it might be time to change.
How is your nearlyyear-old body going to make it to if you're on the couch most nights? The simple answer is, it won't. Move, run, walk, stretch, work out, lift weights just choose something—you don't need a gym membership! If your metabolism hasn't started slowing down yet and you can still manage two huge Domino's pizzas every night, when it does hit, you're going to be very, very stuck, my friend.
Keep active. I started with this simple in-bed yoga routine every morning. Five minutes of sleepy stretches from the very talented Boho Beautiful team. That said, I went veggie two years ago and it's the best decision I ever made. For me, it's too much bread or dairy. It makes me tired and anxious. Cut them out. If that burger tastes great but ten minutes after eating you're bloated and feeling nauseous, listen to your body. It knows what you can handle and what you can't. It took me three weeks to break a lifetime of habits and I've never looked back.

Have you ever thought "I'm not talented at anything"? I'm willing to bet that you have at least one very special skill that no-one you know can do better. No one is going to find that special thing but you. It's part of your soul. Now go be excellent at it, and own it! This is probably the most important point on this list for me, and for you, too.
30 Things To Do Before You Turn 30
One tiny bit of advice; know yourself. If you feel off, run-down, anxious, depressed, if you are hurting and you don't know why, now is the time to take action. People hang on, suffering for years before they finally decide to do something and get some help. This year I attended counselling sessions and it has changed my life, giving me coping mechanisms I need to function. Like BT used to say in that advert: It's good to talk. Open up to someone and let that bad stuff out. Be the best you can be at 30 and take control of your mental health before it takes control of you.
It's okay not to be okay. Take a course, pass those exams, learn to teach, learn to sew, learn a new skill, read those classic books you never got round to reading. Pass those gems of knowledge on. Tolerance is ok but acceptance is better. Let's make our world the best kind of world it can be, and to do that, we need informed, educated people. Not people who say "I don't know what to do about it" but people who say "What can we do about it.
Create something beautiful and uniquely you, and put it on your person. Henna is great for imagining what a tattoo could look like, and there's great online shops now who print those wash-off ones, too! Tattoos don't have to be huge, anywhere visible, or unsightly. They can be beautiful tributes to those we love, and daily reminders of who we are. At the ripe old age of 29, I can't drive. Memories of learning involve a ditch, a tree, and my mum screaming. Now that I'm wanting to live in the countryside, it is impossible for me to do so unless I learn. The time is NOW! If you want kids, you might need a vehicle one day.
If You’re Over 30 & Haven’t Done These 30 Things Yet…Start Over!
It's a great skill! Get your helicopter license while you're at it! Your pilot's license! Your moped license! Or just learn to ride a bicycle, if you haven't before. You'll see more of the world this way. Appreciate it, and do something silly like skinny-dipping, modelling for an art class, or maybe take a naked pic for you to hold onto when you're 80 and your lumps and bumps are much lower down!
Aging is beautiful, yes, but you're going to want a reminder of "that bod" that you work so hard on, or maybe just to give yourself something to laugh at later down the line. DO IT! It's freeing! Let's face it, how many times have we desperately tried to recall our secondary-school French, or a greeting in Spanish? The world is beautiful and multi-cultural, and English just isn't enough any more.
It's respectful to know some basics if you are travelling to another country, and it might just get you out of a tight spot! I know it has for me. There's loads of apps that can help; just give it a go! Hold one finger over one nostril and breathe in slowly through the open one. Now switch and hold another finger over the other nostril. Breathe out slowly. Switch again and breathe in. This is all you need to do to find some balance. As you breathe, try to breathe out the bad thoughts and breathe in something good which has happened that day. It's calming. Sit down.
Have a cup of coffee. Look at your debts. Do you still want these when you are 50? Then contact people, arrange payments, or admit you need help if you do. Don't hide letters, ignore things though I admit it's easy to do. You want a clean slate, and a good idea of where you'll be in the future. It's very freeing. Imagine coming out the other side of 30 as a clear-headed person about your finances. Sounds ace! So do it. Look online for debt services in your area but do NOT turn to loan sharks or payday loans; they won't solve it. My outgoings are more than my incomings, but I'm aware I'm going to need some savings at some point.
Honestly, I'm useless. There are various apps such as Chip, which save for you. They calculate, using an algorithm, how much you usually spend, and then take a tiny bit of that and pop it into the chip account for you, which you can then withdraw as and when you need. If you're better with pennies, get a jar and empty your pockets of change when you come home at night. Now treat yourself to something or save even further for a long-term goal.
Being nearly 30 is hard and your cash goes fast. Try to save some for some lovely things. I'll try it with you! Don't stay stuck. You've worked hard, you deserve the best. Be bold, be brave, and ask for what you want. If they don't see the best in you, someone else will. Always look for more. Do you have one person in your life you can run to when things get bad?
Maybe you have multiple people who give you good advice. Know who to moan to, who to lean on, and who to get advice from.
Sometimes those people aren't your nearest and dearest, but could be a work colleague, an old school friend, or your manager. Just be careful to reciprocate, and make these people your mentors in life. Appreciate them. Don't be caught in a situation where you don't know who to turn to. We need people. If you don't have those people in your life, it might be time to make some changes. This is a tough one. We're all guilty of "settling," "not-committing" or just coasting along. But you're nearly 30, and although that doesn't mean you should be in a relationship you independent thing, you!
Don't stay in a toxic relationship and move on if it's not serving you well. Know your worth.
You've also still got all the time in the world to have fun, so don't think you have to just try one flavour of ice cream! You always wanted one; just make sure you get the right one! A pet can completely enrich your life. My rescue cat "Sauce" is this little purring ball of comfort when I get home from work, and he's the first one I miss if I go away.
He's a pain in the bum, but my goodness, he makes me laugh. I don't know what I would do without him. So if it's a dog, a parrot, a snake, a cat, a horse, a rabbit or a badger Studies show that stroking animals reduces stress, so visit some shelters always try to adopt rescue animals first please. They all need homes! Do you know how to: put up a shelf, bleed a radiator, fix a fuse in a plug, mend a lightbulb, wallpaper a wall, paint, put a lock on a door, plumb in a washing machine, or make a piece of furniture? Well, get you! These are all things that we might like to be able to do but just have never had the opportunity or the knowledge.
NOW is the time to learn, you're nearly 30! Get googling "how to fix a lightbulb" and be your best independent self. Plus it's much cheaper than an engineer if something goes down. Take your holidays from work. Use them well. Don't forget them or take the money instead; use that time to focus on you and stop, for goodness sake, taking your work home.
Having a good work-life-balance is the key to having low stress.
Here is your Bucket List: 30 Things to Do Before You Turn 30:
I used to take the pay for my holidays and work all the way through the year. Don't let your employers bully you into taking time off when you don't want it; they are yours to take and you need to use them when you want to. Be brave. Take a few weeks at a time and have a REAL holiday for once! The time is now!
It's almost here, and you might be panicking. My final item on this sort-of "bucket-list" is Look for the little achievements, the small things that have happened this year which have made you smile, made you happy, given you fantastic memories, or have made you glad, made you cry, made you stronger This is all we get, this is all we have, and all we are.
The big goals can be daunting.
