If you are still on time, you can avoid regretting many simple things in life , which in turn are the most important, often due to prejudices or for so many personal reasons that prevent us from living our lives more fully. The following tips can help you improve your life .

1. Not having traveled when you had the opportunity . Traveling is increasingly difficult as you age, as having a family of 3 or more is more difficult than supporting yourself.

2. Not having learned another language . You will regret it when you remember that you spent more than 4 years learning English at school and you don’t remember anything.

3. Staying in a bad relationship . Remember that “if you decide to be in an unhappy relationship, you have decided to be unhappy.” Trust me, no one who’s ever gotten out of a bad relationship in the past has turned around without saying they wish they’d gotten out sooner.

4. Not having been thanked in time . It’s hard to see it at first, but eventually it becomes clearer that every moment in this world, from the most mundane to the most incredible, is a gift that has been given to us and we are incredibly lucky to have received it.

5. Never have sung or spoken in front of an audience . Dare to challenge your fears and modesty. This will give you an incredible boost of self-esteem. You can do it, even if you think otherwise. You will be pleasantly surprised.

6. Being afraid to do things . Whenever you look back, you will say to yourself: “Why was I so afraid of that?

7. Don’t put “exercising” as a priority . Many, many people will reach the physical fulfillment of their lives lying in an armchair. When you reach 40, 50 and over, you will regret that you stayed without doing anything instead of taking care of yourself a little.

8. Let yourself be defined by gender roles . There is nothing sadder than hearing you say: “it’s that back then those things weren’t done like that.” Dare to change the paradigms.

9. Don’t quit the job you hate . Ok, we understand that you have to pay the bills, but if you don’t have a plan to improve, you could wake up 40 years later living in a working hell.

10. Not trying harder in school . It is not that grades make you more valuable, but someday for some reason you will tell yourself that you would have liked to pay more attention in class.

11. Not realizing how handsome you are . Many of us spend a lot of time regretting that we are not so handsome and spend fortunes improving something that we do not think. Actually, we are beautiful all the time.

12. Be afraid to say “I love you . ” When you grow up, you will see that although your love was not reciprocated, you will always have wanted to express your feelings.

13. Do not listen to the advice of your parents . We know, when you are young you don’t even want to listen to them, but believe us, when you grow up, you will even wish you could hear their voice, even more advice. And the best part is that everything they told you was true.

14. Give great importance to what people think of you . I swear to you that in 20 years you won’t even remember what those people said about you and how much you cared.

15. Support the dream of other people over your own . Yes, helping others is good, as long as you also give yourself the time and space to shine for yourself and fulfill your own dreams.

16. Holding a grudge or resentment towards someone . That means letting someone live in your head without paying rent. Not worth it. What is the point of remembering and remembering the damage that they have done to you? Let it go.

17. Not standing up for yourself . Big people don’t let anyone do something to them they don’t want, neither should you.

18. Not having done an activity as a volunteer . Trust me, voluntarily helping someone make their life more enjoyable is something you will never regret. It feels amazing.

19. Not taking care of your teeth . Brush, floss, see your dentist regularly. When you grow up and have 3, 4 or more teeth missing, you will have wanted to take more care of them.

20. Do not ask your grandparents about life before losing them . They have already passed where you are walking and are an immense source of wisdom. Don’t miss the opportunity to love them before they leave.

21. Working too hard . No one who is going to die has wished they had worked more or spent more time in the office. On the contrary, they wished they had spent more time with their family, friends, hobbies.

22. Not knowing how to cook at least one dish that you like . Learn to cook, you will appreciate it yourself.

23. Don’t stop to appreciate the moment. Yes, we know, young people are always very active, but stopping and admiring around you is a good thing, do it.

24. Don’t finish what you start .

25. Let yourself be defined by cultural expectations . Never let them tell you: “we don’t do that.”

26. Do not spend more time with your loved ones . The time we spend with the people we love is limited and will soon be over. Make the most of it and make the most of it.

27. No more playing with your children . When you are older, you will see how your son went from “Daddy please let’s play” to “Get out of my room dad”.

28. Don’t take risks, especially in love . Knowing that you dared to declare your love to someone, even if it was the biggest fiasco of your life, will be well seen by yourself when you are old. Applies to things in everyday life. In the end you will remember it with a laugh.

29. Not giving yourself the time to network . You will always need them, always. So you better start making them.

30. Worrying too much about everything . If things have a solution, why do you worry? And if they have no solution, why do you worry?
