Get current day with LocalDateTime.now() from which you can substract years, weeks, days up to nanos (in the shown example days with minusDays(long days)):

LocalDateTime dateToLookBack = LocalDateTime.now().minusDays(30);

You can achieve the same result by using the minus(TemporalAmount amountToSubtract) method as below

final var dateToLookBackTo = LocalDateTime.now().minus(Duration.ofDays(30));
