How Women Can Thrive in 2020

2020 is here. For many, it’s a new decade and a new way to start anew. If you’re thinking about how you can succeed in 2020, you’re not alone. The future looks bright for women. Here are some ways you can succeed in 2020.

Be Financially Responsible

The 2010s made being financially responsible a bit troublesome. Smartphones and online shopping made it easier to make impulse purchases and have them delivered right to your door. However, the honeymoon period with that is now over. In 2020, we are watching our finances, building up our credit, and taking responsibility. There are many ways you can be more financially responsible. You can save a little bit of money with each paycheck and think twice before you spend. Consider speaking to a financial advisor if you have any questions.

Don’t Be Afraid to Talk About Our Mental Health

Women are much more open about their mental health, from their anxiety to their depression, and many of us are seeking the help we need. Getting help from a therapist or counselor can help you in so many ways, and thanks to the Internet, it’s much easier. Online therapy or counseling gets you back on your mental feet by connecting you to a licensed professional. Whether it’s a counselor who can give you relationship advice or a therapist skilled in psychology, try online therapy.

Get More Rest

The 2010s did feel like the restless decade. Again, this may be due to the honeymoon period with our devices. Too much phone or screen use before bed may lead to a restless night. We may have adopted the “no sleep gang” attitude, but that’s not good for our mental health. Instead, we should get more rest whenever possible.

Don’t be afraid to relax a little before bed. If you can’t sleep, get up and do something that makes you tired, then try again.

Don’t Get Involved in Social Media Drama

We’ve also had a honeymoon period of social media, but that needs to come to an end as well. The 2010s made everyone angry, and there is a good reason to be angry. Political injustice, sexism, and everything bad about the world gets magnified. However, social media gives us the illusion that we have a bigger impact than we do when we shout into the Twitter void. Instead, get out there and make a change. This isn’t to say that you can’t speak your mind, but don’t engage with people who are there to rile you up. In the 2020s, we’re going to use social media to push the good people up.

You Control Who You Date

Don’t feel pressured to date someone who has more red flags and problems with them, and don’t stay in a relationship that makes you unhappy. Okay, we know there is more to it than just that when you are in an abusive relationship.

Abusive relationships are hard to leave, and if you or a loved one are in one, it’s not your fault.

Leaving an abusive relationship isn’t easy, and it’s often a long process.

However, if you feel like you’re in one, here are a few tips:

· Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at: 1-800-799-7233. You can also visit their website, thehotline.org, for more resources.
· Reconnect with old friends, family members, or anyone else who can assist you.
· See if there’s a women’s shelter in your nearby area.
· Realize this is a long process, and if you’re not ready to leave yet, there is no shame. Leave when you are truly safe to.

Seek The Career of Your Dreams

Let’s end things on a more positive note. If you’re someone who wants to have a better job, the Internet has made it easier to do so. You can have a side hustle, such as being a seller, artist, writer, or any other craft. It doesn’t have to be a full-time job, but by having a little side hustle, it can be good for you and allow you to grow your skill set.

Let’s make 2020 awesome for all women. Get out there and do what makes you happy, and you’ll thrive today, and in the future.
