5 Weird Things That Happen as You Get Older

The one thing that you have in common with every other person on the planet is that you get a day older each day! You probably don’t notice or think about that fact, and even when you get to a point in life where you do, you don’t give it much thought.

You may not know it now, but some interesting or ‘weird’ things happen as you get older. If you haven’t reached that stage in your life yet, take a look at these top changes you can expect and even prepare yourself for:

1. You Actually Like Eating Things You Used to Hate

Let’s face it: there are loads of things that you always tell yourself you’d never eat, even if someone paid you a million pounds! The shocking truth is that, when you get older, you actually change your mind about some of those things and enjoy eating them!

It’s a weird concept to consider. Unfortunately for you, it will happen – whether you want it to or not.

2. You Start Planning For the Future

You’ll never give up planning your day with fun things and doing fun things like socialising with your friends, going on holiday loads and generally enjoying your life. However, one thing you’ll also be doing is planning for your future.

That means you’ll start looking for someone to settle down with; you may even plan to have kids, buy a house, and even look at the cost of funerals and pre-pay yours, as morbid as that might sound to some people!

3. You’ll Start Thinking About Boring Stuff

Who cares about whether your neighbour used a specific brand of paint on their fence panels? Or whether your mate prefers one brand of bread over another for their breakfast? You will, in the not so distant future!

One of the weirdest things you’ll notice about yourself as you get older is you’ll start thinking about all kinds of boring and irrelevant questions and topics.

4. You Always Want to Sleep

You might be a party animal right now and survive on three or so hours of sleep. However, as you get older, you’ll decide that late nights aren’t really your ‘thing’ anymore. You may even sometimes wish you could get away with having an ‘early night’ every night!

It sounds like a shocking statement to make. But, as you get older, you’ll decide that sleep is a more attractive option to staying up all night until sunrise!

5. You’ll Start Sounding Like Your Parents

Arguably the scariest of weird things on this list is you’ll start sounding like your parents. Not in a literal sense, of course, but instead, you will begin to say the kinds of things they often say to you.

It doesn’t matter how hard you try not to say the same things that your parents do. You will still end up saying those things!

What Do You Need To Start A Successful Blog?

You can get a blog up and running in no time at all. In fact, you could have one in operation within twenty minutes if you were so inclined. But there’s a difference between setting up a blog and creating a successful blog. And if you’re going to make an effort to register a domain name and create a website, then you may as well take the additional steps required to ensure that it’s successful. 

I’m Struggling With Blogger Fatigue…Can You Relate?

I love blogging and have loved it for a very long time but the last few weeks have been tough. Instagram is a battle. You spend so much time putting out quality content and it’s so hard to get people to engage with you. Don’t get me wrong, I have some amazing supporters who always engage with my content and believe me; I appreciate that. But, out of nearly 5k followers, you do struggle with the idea that only 100+ ever like it.

Finding Peace With Yourself

If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or something that just feels off, it can be difficult to find the happiness and well-being that can help you get through life and enjoy it the way you want to. You may already know this, but finding peace within can help you change this. But, inner peace is not as simple as meditation and healthy eating (although they definitely help). Besides this consider these approaches to help you feel a little better about yourself and the world around you.
