7 Healthy Habits to Adopt in Your Twenties

7 Healthy Habits to Adopt in Your Twenties

The trial and error period of our life also known as the 20’s is the one that impacts our future most crucially.ย The habits you develop in this decade of your life, in the 20’s, decide how well you will age. While living healthy is not our priority in this decade, here are a few healthy habits to adopt in your twenties for a better lifestyle:

Get 7-8 hours of sleep:

Being in my early twenties myself, I know very well, that our nights do not end before 4 a.m. and sleeping halfway through the day isn’t possible, so we cut back on sleep but do not cut back on the fun.
While the fun lasts, you won’t notice how vulnerable the lack of sleep leaves your body, weakening it.
Not to forget those eye bags that make you look like a zombie. Trust me, no one likes them, not even your better half. Create a sleep routine and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Start your day fresh, and make the most of it. Remember, sleeping more is as dangerous as sleeping less, so, don’t risk it.

Care for Your Skin:

Beauty might not be your strong suite but taking care of your skin should be your priority. You don’t have to be a beauty expert to take care of your skin. Just put on the sunscreen when you go out in the sun, don’t forget to moisturiseย in winters, don’t pop those zits and don’t ignore strange marks.ย All fun and no careย makes Jack an Ugly boy.

Cut Back On Sugars

Gaining weight is the easiest thing in this world, and Sugars are the primary source of it. To cut back on sugars, avoid your excessive sugar intake in the form of aerated soft drinks, cereals with added sugars, etc. Why? Excessive sugar intake can cause disease as dangerous as diabetes along with making you obese and even heart diseases. That should be reason enough to ditch your sweet tooth in your twenties, isn’t it?

Set and Follow an Exercise Routine:

Staying fit is the utmost necessity to live a happier and a longer life. Go to the gym and lose those extra pounds. If you’re not comfortable or can’t go to the gym, you can try Yoga or Zumba; I hear they are much more fun. Set a routine aimed at your fitness goal and follow it religiously at least four days a week. Give yourself a break on Sunday. Trust me; it’s worth it.

Your body is your heaven, and if you take it for granted, the horror it’ll leave you with will be too horrible even to imagine. The adrenaline in your body is bound to be high in this decade, but that doesn’t mean you put your body at risk for the sake of that momentary adventure that might or might not result in a good memory. Don’t let your body scar, don’t go crazy over scary selfies. Go for a morning walk, go hiking, trekking, give your bones enough movement to make them stronger.

Make A ‘Things Not To Do List.’

Put everything on the list that doesn’t result in making your productive. For example, binge watching your favourite shows, playing games on your PS or PC, spending time on social media, etc.

What is that one healthy habit that you have adopted in your twenties or that you think you should have? Let me know in the comments!



  1. Travelling solo, This is one of the late findings.. When you travel solo you will discover yourself a lot more.

    Going solo at a entrely new places, new languages, new culture makes its more challenging. It’s fun exploring, and introverts can become extroverts too. I have experienced this very recently, Maza agaaya! By this, next year onwards there is so much of traveling to do.

    Books; Reading books one of the cool habits, not college books they sucks. But related to life hacks, motivaiton, and whatever you like. Books are like, learning from other mistakes and you dont have to make it. The progress you make after reading the book is exponential.

    Never settle, and never stop learning. keep trying out of the comfort zone, and improving every day.

    Hope this adds value to the post ๐Ÿ™‚

    Twenties boy!

      Travelling solo is totally the best therapy there is, Suresh, no doubt. Thanks for sharing your insights, it sure does add value to the post! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I wish I read this a year back, I’m not twenty yet, (turning 18 in less than a week!) but I learnt the hard way that my body is my temple and I need to treat it right.
    Awesome advice ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. sleep and skincare are my biggest ones! I only recently developed a really good skincare routine with serum, cleanser, toner, moisturizer (the whole lot!) it’s made such a difference and sleep, I get so groggy and can’t function without enough of it!

  4. It’s so great that you’re thinking about this in your 20’s Radhika. Something I’d like to add to this list is to stay hydrated, use natural oils to remove makeup, or to moisturize your face at night, and use sunscreen everyday – even in the winter. This will definitely keep you youthful looking.

  5. Hello Radhika
    It’s really difficult for Blogger to be healthy and maintain an workflow. I agree with all the seven points you said and one of them will be my new year resolution

    • radhikamundra

      I get your concern, Mihir, but avoiding health is the biggest mistake you’ll ever make. The success you have won’t do much good if you aren’t healthy enough to live it through. Have a great birthday and I hope you keep your resolution, Mihir! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • radhikamundra

      Hey, Amrita! I started it recently, my NOT TO DO list and it works wonders! Try it, it’s bound to make you more productive. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Every one of those is a necessity for good health. I am catching up on my excercise these days and it actually feels good to do that. I seelp for 7-8 hours a night and I usually wake up refreshed. Good tips ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. These are great tips, i do them now in my thirties but would of been better starting earlier, i think more people are now becoming informed about health issues, i love the original playstation, fresh air is the best!

  8. Great tips! The twenties is such an important age to start healthy habits, especially getting enough tips and exercise. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚
