Discover the benefits of aging past 30 as you develop emotionally, financially, and physically in ways you never expected.


Dreading the Big 3-0? Has there been a period in your life where you reflected on thirty and cowered at the thought of leaving behind your twenties? Well, there is no need to fret over getting older. In fact, more people now than ever refer to their thirties as being the best time of their lives and they are left wondering why there has been a negative connotation wrapped around the decade in the first place. 

With the combination of emotional stability, more financial stability, and a peak in bone maturation, making for a more attractive face, the thirties are granting us new financial, physical, and emotional assets that we have never experienced. With these benefits, it shines a new light on aging, especially to thirty, and brings many to the conclusion that the thirtieth decade of life is now replacing our twenties as the new prime decennium.

Ever wonder why your situations seem more tolerable now than when you were a teenager? Chances are because you've built an emotional immunity and your brain processes critical thoughts more easily. In addition to all these benefits, adult cognition does not begin to decline until age 55. 

In fact, Facial Recognition improves after age thirty. This skill is associated with attractiveness, familiarity, and emotional status that can form behavioral Patterns. At age 35, Cognitive functions peak giving us an optimal performance of a lifetime. This of course will help in the process of critical thinking and can enhance our situational outcomes and relationships.

Increased Wisdom in Relationships

As we filter through relationships in our younger years, we may wonder at what point these people permanently stay. In our 30s, we finally reach the altar where our relationships become long-lasting and our loved ones remain. We are brought to a new capacity where we can sustain these relationships and no longer accept toxic behaviors when confronted with them. 

We develop stronger intuition, revealing those who are disingenuous in hiding their ulterior motive, and consequently makes us less naïve. In this case, experimental avoidance becomes very beneficial and can prevent future trauma and wasted time down the line.

You Are Happier and have More Emotional Stability 

It is no secret that older adults spend more time thinking ahead and less of it worrying about their existence. It is true that an existential crisis may be the heart of every 25-year-old's problems but at the age of 35, it's possible to forget that it even affected you at all. 

There is more peace of mind when it comes to being an older adult due to more controlled thoughts. Having better mind control means that emotions are being processed more easily to evade uninvited thought processes. In this aspect, older adults are most likely to experience steady and better moods.

Increased Financial Stability

With Millenials currently aged 26-41, it is said that those in their third decade did not find themselves financially dependent until age 31. Being financially stable, meant that they were no longer relying on their parent's income. Studies showed that a lack of independence can lead to feelings of immaturity, and guilt and can even cause depression. 

Luckily after 30, with a better idea of career goals and professional strengths, these issues usually tend to subside. Car insurance is no longer through the roof like they were at age twenty and even drop at a 2% decrease. For 2022, the average annual cost of car insurance for a twenty-year-old is $3,344, whereas those aged 30 only pay $1682.

More attractive in their 30s

Hold the cheek and chin fillers, at least until age 35. While the world is stunned by these revelations, there are a number of actresses who look better in their 30's. Bone maturation and strength are still growing and it doesn't stop until our mid-thirties. Different variables like diet, genetics, and exercise can help make for a strong skeletal system. 

Keeping up with a healthy diet and active lifestyle can increase the odds of bone durability and diminish our chances of osteoporosis. Having more to get ourselves into healthy habits can benefit us in the long run, especially, when our skeletal system is still maturing well into our mid-thirties. 

The Best Decade to Start Parenting

Women aged 36-40 share testimonies on their pregnancies and have no regrets about doing so. A woman named Sofia Todorova, aged 36 says

"Having my children in my thirties has given me time for career development. This grants me independence and personal fulfillment, which are personal examples to pass to my daughters." 

She also states that she is more emotionally equipped at this time more so than in her twenties. Another woman, Jaimee Ratcliff, at age forty, had her child. She states that having her child at this age allowed her to acquire financial stability, her own home, and maturity. She also states that she was not ready at an earlier age and did not have the mindset or life experience to be a parent earlier in life. 

With increased positivity and mental capabilities, supreme facial beauty, refined capabilities in parenting, and decreased chances of financial insolvency, these details are more conducive to the thirties being the pinnacle decade of human existence. The twenties may be a blast but we soon learn a good time usually comes with consequences. 

Between having a bit too much and losing a purse, locking the keys in the car, blacking out with no recollection of their own whereabouts, or losing a phone, most in their thirties could say that those days were short-lived in their twenties and learned to avoid these unpleasant situations. It is appropriate to assume that turning thirty is nothing short of marvelous and is quite the contrary to sulking in misery. In fact, it may even be completely acceptable to say that the thirties are the new twenties and maybe our forty's will be gratifying too.
