You finally made it—you’re in your twenties, living the independent lifestyle you’ve been wanting to have since you were probably 12 years old. It’s all a dreamy experience, that is, until the reality of the situation starts kicking in, and the repetitive routine of getting up, going to work, tending to chores and paying bills have got you wishing you can go back to a simpler time, before ‘burnout’ was a term you used to describe the state of your being. Yup, adulting can sometimes be an overwhelming experience, even for those who've been living independently for years. But no matter where you are in your twenties, it's okay if you don’t have everything figured out yet.
When it comes to adulting, there’s no singular method one can follow that guarantees success, as it varies from person to person. And unfortunately, this is often distorted in the world of social media. In times when you might feel a little lost, it always helps to find someone you can relate to. That said, here are eight lifestyle YouTubers you can watch to teach you about the different sides of adulting.
