As far as societal expectations go, your thirties are supposed to be the best years. You're done with the confusing 20s and you've learned who you are and what you want in life.
It's also the decade where there's the most pressure to have certain boxes ticked - to have a great job, solid income, own a home, settle down and start a family. And that's a little daunting.
We asked the Mamamia community to share their best advice for women entering their 30s. Here's what they said.
But first, here are some amazing women we love who became famous after 30. Post continues below.
1. "You'll wake up 30 feeling the same as you did at 29 and 364 days. So, don’t waste time agonising and start celebrating and feeling joy!" - Belinda-Jane.
2. "Use sunscreen every day." - Kylie.
3. "Don’t wait to start loving yourself. Start now! Don’t care what others think, do what makes you happy!" - Peta.
4. "It’s time for a friend cull! Maintain those friendships that bring value to your life, who are supportive of all you do and who love you for who they are. It’s time to stop putting in the effort for anyone else!" - Danielle.
5. "You're still a baby and you are yet to reach your peak! Enjoy life." - Jo.
6. "Put yourself first and surround yourself with good energy, always. Aging is a gift not awarded to everyone. Embrace the present and plan for the future, be thankful for your 20s but don't give them so much importance that you can't grow and move forward. And finally, have compassion for yourself and for others." - Diya.
7. "Don’t be down about it. Your 30s are so much better than your 20s!" - Emma.
8. "Write a list of 30 things to do in your 30s - it should be a mix of fun, personal goals, small, big, practical and wild things. You might not tick them all off, but it might just be the nudge you need on some occasions!" - Fleur.
9. "Read The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and put it into practice now." - Tilly.
10. "Exercise and eat well." - Kylie.
11. "Your thirties are the most awesome decade. It's the time when you're still young enough not to have health issues, but old enough to have your opinions respected and listened to. It's the decade when you find your own sense of style, instead of just following fashion trends whether they suit you or not. Often it's the time when your career gets really established or you think about starting a family." - Tristan.
