The world will tell you to invest in stocks, cryptocurrency, real estate, and whatnot—assets that involve money or can be judged successful when the cash returns follow. Starting younger is always better. It will maximize the opportunity to grow your cash tree, they say. You go dive in and work hard to pump your investments with some gas. You dedicate all your time to growing your money, laser focused on that one goal in mind.
You begin to not notice your partner’s rants about work. You ignore your parents who were asking for your help to set up the social media arm of their small business. You start to neglect your body’s need to rest.
Take it easy, tiger. While monetary investments may bring your dreams to life, it’s not guaranteed to be all rainbows and butterflies, especially if you don’t invest in other aspects of your life that won’t necessarily lead to extra dough. We list down some things you may want to also invest in and not take for granted. The return on investment will surely be worth your time and energy.
Investing in good quality equipment also improves the quality of your work and the efficiency of your performance. It is much better and faster to work with a laptop that does not lag every three minutes. A camera with good image and video quality will also upgrade the level of your work. Of course, it still depends on the talent and the time you dedicate to preparing and executing, but if you have extra and can invest in better equipment, take it and you’ll end up even saving money in the long run.

Bags, Shoes, Watches, Jewelry
Are you into bags, shoes, watches, and jewelry? If yes, it’s better to mix affordable ones with pieces that you would have to invest more money on. These accessories will outlive you. Depending on care, they will be passed on from one generation to the next and be heirlooms for your successors. By the time it has reached your great, great, great-grandchildren, its value must have quadrupled already.
Do not ever feel that books are a waste of money. Information is always valuable at any given point in time. Your library at home will one day be educating other people, and that’s a wonderful gift to give. Information is power and it can’t ever be replaced by anything else in the world.
Most people take their health for granted. They sleep at late hours, skip exercise, and eat junk food mindlessly. Your body will one day make you pay for everything you’re subjecting it to. Rest is very important and must not be avoided at any cost. You may feel unmotivated to exercise but studies have repeatedly shown the positive health benefits regular exercise may give you. Your mood will be uplifted; your energy will be at a high; you’ll show up with a brighter aura to your friends and family, and you’ll be pumped up for work.
Investing in a good health insurance plan also goes a long way, especially that health problems come when we least expect them to.
Humans are not isolated beings and we all have a need for social interaction, may we be introverts or extroverts. Don’t sleep on friends who add value to your life. Make them feel loved like how they make you feel loved. Be present and engage. Listen to their stories and share yours too. Always treat them with kindness, respect, and empathy but also learn how to stand your ground if conflicts arise.
Because family members have become too familiar, we tend to take them for granted all the time. Invest effort and time for your relationships within the family. As they say, family is forever. They are the group of people who have been with you since birth; you share lots of history together and you even look alike, if that counts for something. Do not dare take for granted the time you have now to spend with them because you will never know what may happen today or the next day. Hold them dear and hug them closely.
