Adulting sometimes takes the fun part out of life, leading to feeling burnt out or dissatisfied. Don't get me wrong, adulthood is great—especially when you're one accomplished lady who has it all figured out. But it wouldn't hurt to let loose and go back to old habits from time to time.
While there's nothing wrong with being older, we think it would be cool for you to feel years younger again—just to lighten things up! Try these recos below:
1. Bond with your parents
Feel like a child again simply by just hanging out with your parents. You can watch a funny flick, have dinner, and talk for hours. When was the last time you talked to them anyway? They'll surely appreciate you reaching out to them.
2. Wear a glossy tint
Moisturized lips with a hint of color displays the look of youth. Swipe on an age-defying, hydrating lipstick in an MLBB hue.

3. Move more
Exercising makes you feel young both in and out. Fitness activities such as strength-training, cardio, running, and swimming increases your energy and accelerates cell repair—you'll feel less sluggish with each move.
But if you find that going to gym is too much, simply walking or dancing can be suffice to torch calories. Go extra by getting yourself a fitness activity tracker band that reminds you to move, tells you how many calories you've burned, and the quality of your sleep. That said, don't forget to rest, too!
TRY: Fitbit Alta HR+, P8,490, at Digital Walker, Beyond the Box, select Toby’s stores, iBOOK, iCENTER, Mobile1, Globe, Gadgets in Style, Hivemind, Lazada, Zalora, Timeline, The Inbox Store, iLiberty and Rnnr stores.
4. Go back to school
No, we're not telling you sign up for a short course or further studies (although that's a great idea!). We're suggesting that you go back to your Alma Mater, and reminisce the days when you never had to worry about bills, bosses, and clients.
5. Attend a music festival
Music festivals aren't only for the young ones! From indie bands to EDM, choose a festival where you can dance, sing, and forget all the worries of adulthood away.
TRY: Manila Style X Music Festival (May 27) at the Globe Circuit Events Grounds, P1,254/General Admisson; P2,090/VIP Gold, at TicketWorld; Neverland Manila Presents Young Gunz (June 11) at the Globe Circuit Events Grounds, P1,575/Regular GOLD Phase 1 (Early Bird promo april 10-May 16), P2,100/ Regular GOLD Phase 2; P2,625/VIP Standing, at SMTickets.com
6. Play the soundtrack of your youth
If an outdoor concert is too much, you can simply listen to a playlist of sikat songs you listened to when you were young. You can get started with FemaleNetwork.com's '90s love songs playlist or the '90s party tracks we've compiled before.
