It’s one thing to fantasize about what you want to be in the future and another thing to start working on it. Whether you put some effort in or not, the time will pass and you may find yourself feeling sorry you haven’t done some things earlier. Here are three things that cost nothing but if you start doing them now you will thank yourself in several years.

Start Building Habits

It can be frustrating when you’re not as good at something as you’d like to be, but if you don’t change the habits that affect your life you won’t do much. If you’d like to get in physical shape, the first thing you need is a habit to exercise 3-4 times per week without overthinking it. If you’d like to improve your overall physical and mental health, it may be crucial to replace the habit of sitting in front of the TV with a habit of going for a walk after work.

Start Saving

Saving a certain amount of money each month doesn’t necessarily require a bigger budget. You can start small—as long as you just start. As you see your savings account grow, it may motivate you to skip certain purchases and save instead.

Call Friends

You don’t need hundreds of friends to be happy, but keeping in touch with a selected few people can make all the difference in how you live your life. As we get older we tend to lose touch with people so make an effort to stay connected and it will pay off in the long run.
