Adulting is real!
Ang daming pressure from work, parents, peers, and even the expectations you set for yourself.
Kakayanin mo pa ba?
Oo naman! We’ve listed down tips to help you be better at adulting.
- Apply for valid government IDs.
Dapat ngayon naga-apply ka na kasi you need it to secure any kind of transactions. Plus, most establishments ask you to present one or two of them, says MM de Mesa and Jeremiah Capacillio of Spot.ph in their article The Clueless Person’s Guide to Surviving the Real World. Some of the IDs na you need to have are SSS, TIN, Philippine Passport, and Voter’s ID.
- Take care of your health.
Hinay-hinay lang! One of your biggest investments is your health kaya know your limitations.
Find time to exercise regularly kahit at least twice a week muna or start eating nutritious food to boost your health, de Mesa and Capacillio added. Important din to have health insurance kaya you may want to invest in that too.
- Budget and save.
Be smart with how you spend your money, so you can reach your financial goals. Para din naman ito sa future self mo.

It’s part of healthy adulthood!
Kung natatakot kang masaktan, sabi ni Jared Lafitte in his article 10 Ways to Do Adulthood Well by Relevant Magazine, “Risk and awkwardness and vulnerability and pain are all parts of a healthy relationship, not reasons to avoid one. Whether it’s with your parents or with friends or with a potential marriage partner, embrace the beautiful messiness and joys of deep relationships.”
