8 Things People Regret Not Doing Sooner

Life Improvements

These changes can be as simple as changing a daily habit or as complex as pursuing a long-term goal.

No Longer Limiting Fun to Just the Weekends

"I stopped living my life just waiting for the weekend," said one Reddit user. When you work five days a week and only get two days off, it's not good to always be looking forward to your two days off.


"Flossing," it was written. Now, going to the dentist for health and cleaning is easy, and I haven't had a cavity in years!"

Starting Over

Starting over late in life might sound scary, but if you've been thinking about it for a while, here are some good things that happened to people who did it.

Trying to Improve Your Mental Health

Depression makes you want to shut yourself off, but the first step to getting better is to reach out and ask for help.

Moving Closer to Work

A Reddit member said, "Not everyone can afford it, but moving closer to work is a good idea for those who can. From being stuck in traffic for 45 minutes and hating the tail lights in front of me, my journey is now a pleasant 15-minute bike ride.

Pursuing a Degree Later in Life

One person said, "I got my bachelor's degree when I was 47 years old. 50 years old and have a master's degree. I doubled my salary in four years, and now I'm on track to retire at age 60.


Someone on Reddit said, "Work out every day. Anxiety and sadness are much easier to deal with, and I feel better about myself than I have in years."

Setting Boundaries

A Reddit user said, "I recently said no at work, and it felt so good. My boss was surprised because I almost never do that, but I knew I didn't have time for the job and that it wouldn't be done right.
