A question many of us probably have is “How do you know you are an adult?”
Is it when you graduate college? Rent your first apartment? Or have a steady job?
Even if you are 25 or 35 you can sometimes still feel unsure if you are actually doing this adult thing right, because it’s not like they give you any type of certificate or training course in it.
Adulting is hard. If you are still feeling confused and unsure, here are four things you can do to feel more like an actual adult, and know that even if you don’t necessarily feel like one most people probably think you are.
Having a planner
One way to feel like a grown-up is to have a planner in which you put you plans!
But seriously the reason this will make you feel super adultish is because you will be able to know when and where you need to be at all times, and also, your life will feel a lot more well-organized and less chaotic.
Plus you can say things like, “I’ll add it to my calendar” which sounds super grown-up and mature.
Eating well-balanced meals
Long gone are the days of 3 a.m. Denny’s runs with your friends or pizza for breakfast, or at least they should be.
To be an adult and do adult things your body needs the proper fuel, and eating well-balanced meals filled with actual fruits and veggies will make your body feel better and also make you feel grown-up.
If you want to take it to the next adult level you could even plan all your healthy meals in advance and cook some of them in advance too, and more adult points if you use a crockpot or pressure cooker.
Go to your doctor
Nothing will make you feel like more of an adult than actually taking the time to make appointments with your doctor, dentist, or any other type of healthcare provider that you may need.
When you reach a certain age, no one is really going to force you to go get your teeth cleaned or go in for your yearly health screen, so it is going to be up to you to do it.
So, visit www.grovecitydentalofblackfoot.com or call your doctor’s office to schedule an appointment, and after you are done you will feel like a bonified adult who is taking care of themselves.
Doing laundry every week
This is two-fold because nothing is more adult-like than having piles of laundry to do, but the thing that will make you really feel like you are actually being a responsible adult is actually doing the laundry every week.
Making sure to wash your sheets and pillowcases every week as well. It is not only a lot healthier but part of being a responsible grown-up human being.
