Thirty is a wonderful age. People who are almost in their 30s talk about it with fear and wonder. “You’re getting old!” they say, but wisdom comes with age; and being in your 30s means you have been through a lot in your 20s. Though you still have so much to learn, never take for granted the life lessons you’ve had when you were younger. After all, life experiences are your best teacher and you owe the person you are today to your younger self.

  1. Money can’t buy happiness

Remember when you had your first pay from your first job, and the smallest things like contributing for home grocery made you feel so independent and grown up? Because even if you were not earning a lot, what mattered was that you know your purpose. Early adulthood for you was finding ways to stretch your paycheck, and that opened up to new learnings and smart life hacks. You didn’t rely on money to make yourself happy, and you shouldn’t do so now.

  • Love yourself first

Before you’re able to give love, fill yourself up with self-love first. Probably by now, you have learned this lesson. Whether from a bad breakup or from something else, we bet you learned it the hard way. By now, you’ve probably realized that you can easily replaced your terrible ex with something else, like time for family and friends, a business, work or a hobby. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with giving your all to someone special, you also need to remember that you can only give it you yourself is in perfect condition.

  • Work-life Balance is an everyday commitment

An intense overtime before a month-end report is okay. And a couple of working weekends won’t hurt. But if work is all you’ve got the last couple of months, something is terribly wrong! We know that work is important and that you love what you’re doing, but it shouldn’t define your life. Prioritize your personal life just as how you work hard to meet deadlines. You’ll be surprised you’re even more productive when you learn how to balance work and play.

  • Try something new once in a while

Remember those spontaneous road trips with friends during college days just because? Don’t let go of that thirst for adventure and new life experiences. Even if you are saving up for a new house or a new car, remember that you do not have to spend much to have fun. Challenge yourself to spend as little as possible to do something new, and you might even find yourself starting a little business out of a new hobby.

The list goes on and on. There are so much more life lessons that your 20s have taught you. The most important thing is to never forget them and be proud for who you have become today.

  • We all know that Singapore is famous for being one of the cleanest countries in the world today. Although it’s already obvious that a clean environment looks better, there’s actually more to it than that. When it comes to our own well-being cleanliness also has a lot of benefits. Here are only a few of them!

    1. Keeps us healthy

    Having good hygiene and keep a clean environment is one of the best ways to avoid getting diseases. Many of our everyday things like keys, wallets, and phones are actually home to possibly millions of germs and bacteria. If we become careless and neglect these, we may easily get sick from them. Handwashing is one small example of keeping clean to avoid diseases. It’s a very simple thing to do yet it can do wonders when it comes to protecting you from diseases. Generally, if you keep your overall environment clean, you won’t easily get exposed to harmful bacteria.

    2. Cleanliness c can actually boost productivity

    The idea here is simple, if your desk is clean, you’ll be able to focus a lot better! Having clutter around you actually has psychological effects. If your desk is unorganized, your brain has to process a lot more information than necessary and it will be difficult for you to stay focused. In addition to that, if you have to clean up your workplace, you’ll use up a lot of valuable time that you would otherwise have spent on more productive things. 

    3. Cleaning can be a great stress-reliever

    Sometimes decluttering your stuff can be quite therapeutic. Once you get rid of the unnecessary stuff in your room, for example, you’ll notice that you have a lot more space it will be like a breath of fresh air. If you do this at a time when you’re not busy or before you work on a lot of things, you’ll thank yourself later. Why do we say this? It’s because no one wants to go home to a messy place. If you already have your place organized you won’t have to worry about cleaning up after a whole day at work. How many times have you come home from a tiring day at work only to start cleaning again? 

    4. Promotes better sleep

    In relation to what was said earlier, if you come home from work and still have a lot to clean up, you might end up sleeping late. Sure, you could say that you can just disregard the mess and clean everything up on the next day but it’s still the same case, you’ll have to clean it up anyways. Plus, you’ll simply fall asleep a lot easier if you don’t have clutter around you.

  • It is already quite known that many Singaporeans tend to sacrifice sleep for work. Although how much sleep is needed depends on a lot of different factors like age and health, having enough sleep is still very important to maintain a healthy well-being. Here we will talk simply about sleep debt and how you can pay it off.

    What is Sleep Debt?

    Sleep debt is basically a term that refers to not getting enough sleep continuously. This happens when you either stay up late or wake up too early to get your work done. Simply think about it as the sleep version of financial debt. When it builds up, it can have negative effects on your memory, cognitive ability, and overall health.

    Sleep debt is a clear result of sacrificing sleep for work, drinking too much coffee, and other things that can cause disturbances to your sleep pattern. In Singapore, for example, many are so used to being deprived of sleep that they fail to notice the symptoms of sleep debt. That is why it is important to remember that even though you can still get your work done during the day, you’re still putting yourself at risk of many health problems if you don’t have adequate sleep.

    How to Pay it Back

    When trying to get back to your natural sleeping cycles, you should know that it will take quite some time for your body to adjust, especially if you’ve been sleep deprived for months or even years.

    • During bedtime…

    To put it simply, try to sleep earlier so you can get 7-8 hours of sleep. Again, because you’re used to so used to sleeping late this might sound like an outrageous tip. But there’s really no better way to start than getting your body used to sleeping at the right time again. “When it’s time for bed, then it’s time for bed.” Follow this strictly. Try your best not to use your phones and put your paperwork down when you’re already on the bed. That way you can take your mind off things and get to sleep earlier.

    • Weekends

    Many of us tend to sacrifice sleep for work because we think we can just make up for it during the weekends. This is actually a big misconception. When you don’t have enough sleep for 5 weekdays straight and suddenly sleep for long hours during the weekend, it can mess up your sleeping pattern even more. Plus, when you sleep for more hours on a Sunday, you might have trouble sleeping again at night. Then, you’ll just repeat the whole process of not having enough sleep on the weekdays.

  • Sports in Singapore has been shaped by many of its athletes through the years. Some have reached greater heights, like Joseph Schooling and many others. But more than earning glory of winning medals, playing sports is important to our life in many ways.

    Physical benefits

    Clearly, one of the biggest reasons why playing sports is important is because they promote physical fitness. Different sports also influence different physical aspects of the body. Swimming, for example, is a full-body workout that can target muscles in all our limbs while also helping us improve our lung and heart endurance. It can be very different from a strength sport like weightlifting when it comes to physical benefits.

    It teaches teamwork

    Being able to work effectively in a team is an essential quality in the world of employment, and in life in general. Playing a team sport teaches a person to work with others and share a path together towards the goal of winning as a group. Being in a team allows a person to recognize the different strengths and weaknesses of each person so that they can work in ways that can complement each other. This can translate to work life and the athlete should be able to complement other’s skills and also cover for their weaknesses at the proper times.

    Helps us see the value of defeat

    We are always faced with many challenges in life and there are many times when we fail. Even if this is the case, we need to recognize that failure is part of life and actually a big contributor to success. When we face defeat, we can become better because we get to learn more about ourselves, what went wrong, etc. Playing a sport enables us to live through and accept defeat, not as an unsurmountable wall, but as a stepping stone to success.

    Teaches dedication

    An athlete who works hard in his/her sport will have already developed the quality of being dedicated. Playing a sport disciplines us to commit to a certain task, purpose, or goal. To achieve greater heights, an athlete must sacrifice and dedicate time because dedication and commitment is where hard work starts. Understanding dedication makes us better person in many aspects. Work ethic, relationships, finance, and a lot more.

    Helps build confidence

    When we get words of encouragement, praises from our coaches, compliments from our teammates, and cheers from the audience, we become more confident about ourselves. We learn to be more confident about our abilities and skills. And even when we fail, we find that there will be people to pick us up from the ground and cheer us on. This means that we don’t become confident on our own, but because we know we have others to fall on at trying times.

  • Drinking warm water is not really a very commonplace thing to do. Even so, there actually are a lot of benefits from having a glass of warm water.

    1. Helps the digestive system. Drinking warm water can actually stimulate our digestive system. This aids in digestion overall as it makes it easier for the stomach to take in the food we eat while also absorbing the nutrients from them. This is done because warm water stimulates the blood vessels in our stomach, helping it with digestion.
    • Can improve circulation. Drinking warm water also improves blood flow. This then helps our blood vessels expand, making it easier for the blood to travel through our veins and arteries. This also makes it easier to flush out excess toxins that are still present in our body.
    • Calms the nervous system. Warm water can have a magical effect on the nervous system. Drinking warm water can actually calm your nerves, literally and metaphorically speaking.  This basically has a lot to do with the improved circulation, as stated earlier.
    • Provides better rehydration in hot climates. Because of the hot weather in Singapore, you may prefer drinking cold water because you think it’s refreshing. But, this actually does you more harm than good when it comes to the body’s energy. When the climate is hot, obviously your body temperature also increases. If you drink cold water, the body takes more energy to convert it to a temperature that the body can take.
    • Is said to ease pain. It is said that warm water is a great remedy to alleviate headaches, muscles spasms and even pain from menstrual cramps. A lot of this has to do with its calming effects and its ability to soothe our nerves as mentioned earlier.
    • May help in weight loss. Drinking warm water can aid in the process of losing weight. Having a glass of warm water in the morning can increase your body’s temperature. This means that your metabolic rate also increases, allowing you to burn more calories throughout the day.
    • Promotes better sleep. Again, because of its calming and soothing effects on the body, warm water enables us to have better and deeper sleep. While it helps you fall asleep faster, it also makes you feel full, meaning you won’t have to wake up in the middle of the night looking to get food in your stomach.
    • A remedy for nasal congestion. Warm water is actually recognized by many as an effective home remedy for nasal congestion. This is because the high temperature softens the mucus, speeding up its travel outside of the body. Warm water is also a good remedy for coughs and sore throat because again, it helps clear the phlegm from our respiratory tract.
