9. Read, Read, Read
Reading is one of the best moves to make in your 20s and not just the newspaper. So, read something that will enrich your life, not make you worry about things you have no control over. It might not seem like the best advice ever, but the benefits of reading outweigh the cons by far. Developing a love of reading makes you a lot smarter though. Your mind is a muscle, so you need to exercise it.
Apart from the cognitive benefits, reading is also an antidepressant. Taking up an inspiring novel can often lift you out of a dark place. It sparks your own creativity and you become the director of your own movie. Have you ever wondered why the book is always better than the movie? It is because you create the characters and the scenes.
Someone else might have written down the words, but you get to color it in. There aren’t many things out there that can take your mind off your daily struggles than a good read. Whatever tickles your fancy, immerse yourself in the world you can create.
