In your 20s? Check out these 10 Key Lifestyle
1 Always be learning
        Whether it’s learning how to cook, learning how to play a new sport, or a developing a new career skill, in your 20s you should always be learning new things. Get the best education you can afford, and don’t worry if you don’t have a clue about what you want to be. Just start by building a good foundation that you can take with you wherever you go. But don’t just focus on formal education. Carve out some time to develop your awareness about what’s going on in the world and what kind of mark you want to have on it.
2 Stick to a routine
        The most successful people in the world have a routine, and it’s no secret as to why. The sum total of what we do each day is what makes us successful or unsuccessful. No, you don’t have to scribble in brushing your teeth in the morning in your day planner but you should include set times for getting the most important things done each day. If you tend to procrastinate this tip is especially for you.
3  Hang around people who have it together
        Most often, we become the people we hang around. If we want to be successful, we have to have people in our lives who are the example. Whatever it is you want to become in life, have a mentor that can help teach you things or simply to motivate you along the way.
4  Cultivate relationships
        It’s easy to be so busy and caught up in the daily grind that you forget to take time for friends and family. No matter how busy you are, make it a point to go to family dinners and functions, keep in touch with old friends, and make time for getting to know new ones better. Life is lonely without relationships.
5  Respect yourself
        Respecting yourself can mean a lot of things. It can mean not caring too much about what others think, not spending time with people who are bad for us, always being true to yourself, or not getting involved in unnecessary fights. All of these things are a part of respecting yourself and holding yourself to a high standard.
6  Put yourself out there
        No one wants to get hurt in relationships but the truth is, when you play the game you take a blow from time to time. It’s easier said than done but try to cast aside your fear when it comes to taking a chance with the opposite sex. You never know when you’ll meet the perfect person for you.
7  Be adventurous
        Exploring the world around you builds character and memories. And, you don’t necessarily have to spend lots of money on a trip to have an adventure. Consider backpacking through the mountains, camping out at a National Park, or volunteering in a foreign country.  
8  Be smart financially
        Being smart financially is very important at any age but especially in your 20s. During this time most people are starting to build credit, which means credit cards can be a downfall. Use them for emergencies but resist the temptation to overspend. Also, make it a point to save money wherever possible, like cooking at home, making a budget, or paying your student loans on time to avoid interest.
9  Go easy on yourself
        In your 20s you’re bound to make mistakes or feel like you aren’t moving up in the world as fast as you would like. This doesn’t mean you’re a failure or that things won’t be easier in the future. Just don’t be so hard on yourself. Give yourself some room for imperfection and time to relax instead of pushing yourself too hard.
10   Put your best foot forward
        When you look your best you feel your best, so always put your best foot forward. How you present yourself through your clothing and appearance affects how people perceive and treat you. Not only will you be more respected at work or at school, the ladies will take you more seriously if you take a little time out of your day to be more polished.
