Top 10 Things You Would Most Likely Do If You Were a Kid Again

Imagine time reverses and you wake up as a kid again. The first thought you have is that everything suddenly goes easier for you. We've gone through times of wishing to be an adult, but when you reach that point you start to experience the harsh facets of life. When that hits, it's not uncommon for people to wish to revisit the golden days of their childhood. What if that actually happens, and what do you think you would do if you were suddenly back into your kid's self?
The Top Ten
1 Play more games

No doubt this is what almost everyone would do, knowing that gaming is a common hobby regardless of age. The first thing you'd probably do is try to fill up your entire Pokédex or finish that Minecraft palace you and your old friends made back in the day - only if your offline friend of 2,584 days suddenly came back online, though.

2 Read more

This is one of the things most of us probably wished we did more of in our childhood, as some of us spent all our time on video games and such - something the recent generations do continuously. Assuming you have all the knowledge you've gained in your lifetime, you'd definitely be the librarian's pet.

If not, you can try to be more knowledgeable than your past childhood self. Simply put, it helps you in the long run.

3 Build with LEGOs

For most people, LEGOs sum up a huge part of childhood. Remember when you used to build the tallest tower or imagine epic scenes with LEGO figures? Now that you are a child again, why not take that second chance to build the tallest tower or the largest city if you have a vast LEGO collection?

I used to love building and playing with LEGOs.

4 Go back to school

Assuming that you still have all your current knowledge, the biggest flex would be demonstrating your understanding of calculus or linear algebra in an elementary school. This entry made me wonder: are child prodigies just former adults who somehow managed to lodge themselves back into their mother's womb, or are they geniuses who learned the secret of reversing their age but refuse to reveal it to everyone?

If you didn't manage to retain all the knowledge you've gained as a teenager or young adult, at least you'd have a second chance to take school and homework more seriously - unless your mental age is also affected.

5 Watch cartoons

Obviously, most people would binge-watch cartoons, given that kids have fewer responsibilities to handle. Finally, you'd have a chance to finish all your SpongeBob episodes without the pressure of work. Of course, you may still have housework to do, but take out school (assuming you finished high school), and you have an abundance of free time.

6 Invest

Obviously, it's not the first thing people are going to consider when they're back in a child's body, but this is common sense assuming you still have sufficient disposable income. The earlier you invest, the further you're going to get compared to people who haven't started yet, and investments grow in profits over time. This is a convenient choice if you want to get ahead of your financial issues later on when you're an adult.

7 Eat healthier

Most of us made the unhealthy mistake of developing a habit of eating fast food early as kids. Some people just don't have the free time to work out, preferring to prepare instant soup rather than taking the time to rustle up a quick healthy meal, as they spend most of their time working to survive.

Provided that you keep your current mentality, it may be easier to restrain yourself from eating unhealthy food than it was when you were a kid. The only downside is that people might have little access to healthier ingredients, as fast food is cheaper and more convenient, depending on where they live.

8 Work out

This is one of the less likely items, but it's common knowledge that working out brings great benefits, and the effects are optimal in the long run, especially when you're a child. Exercise is mandatory for people regardless of age, and you won't regret it if you work out earlier in your life.

9 Go outside

Go grab your childhood bike or skateboard you haven't used for years or even decades. It's better if you live surrounded by nature - swing on ropes, climb trees, or just pull grass strands around your backyard. Run like you're heading towards the sun.

10 Rent an animated movie
The Contenders
11 Spend more time with family

Admit it, we were pretty rebellious when we were entering puberty, and some of us didn't have the chance to know more of our family and relatives. Now, with the pressure of work and college, there's little time for family meetups. Perhaps being a kid again would renew this opportunity.

12 Spend more time with friends
13 Play with pets
14 Make new friends

This would also be a wise choice if you used to have a sheltered life.

15 Get new toys

Pretty much the first thing most people would do if they were a kid again.

16 Try getting a girlfriend

For those of you who are in your peak ages but haven't managed to find a partner yet, at least you now know all the cues girls typically give, so your chances would be slightly higher.

17 Correct your past mistakes

If only you were somehow aware of the mistakes you made in the past, you could avoid some of the biggest mistakes of your youth.

18 Find better friends
19 Start learning life skills at a young age
