Having lived a good part of your life, from experience what single piece of advice would you pass on to a young adult , that you think would help them in the future?
Mine would be to spare a minute in the evening to diarize records of their life.
jotting down (on paper or online) dates/times your job started, when you got a rebate, when your ordered something, when you spoke to the garage, the tax dept ,when your pay increase started , the day you complained about your rent,you got promised a refund etc etc etc. Being able to look back accurately makes life much easier.

Some sort of diary as above would be useful, certainly.
I'd say try to keep in touch with people you got on well with when you were younger or get on well with now (which might require use of facebook etc, of course!) When people go off to Uni or other training, get married, get a new job, move to a different area etc, all those social ties can be severed, which is sometimes a blessing (!) but sometimes a shame. My daughter lost touch with some of her school friends but found them again through social media after a gap of some years, and now they get together every so often and have a great time. I met my oldest friend fifty years ago (argh, I feel old!) and our friendship has d its ups and downs, but survived all sorts of hassles and separations. Good friendships are worth nurturing, and could well last all your life - a vital support network in difficult times, and a source of joy in so many ways.

Take time to talk to your older relatives & try & learn something from the past.

Always have a good bed and a good pair of shoes - because if you are not in one you are in the other. smile
