Live frugally, but don’t be a miser. Avoid peer pressure to buy things.
Turn off the TV and video games and go play or read.
Learn the difference between good friends and enablers.
Avoid toxic and clingy people. These people are time wasters
Stay non pregnant until you really want to be a parent.

Pick a hobby that you can do all your life.
