When you’re in your 20’s, perhaps you think its the time for fun, experimentation, and an amazing amount of freedom. You might even spend a ton of time staying awake at night, binge eating unhealthy foods, and enjoyed endless parties. You focus on living life to the fullest and forget the healthy habits.

But it should also be a time where you’re building your health for the future decades.

So here are some simple healthy habits that are worth practicing and implementing. They’ll help improve your health, lifestyle, and overall life decision. So check them out and let me know what you think!

Eat Your Breakfast

While we all know how important the breakfast is, many still fail to eat the first meal of the day. Forget all your excuses and always eat your breakfast before starting your day. Choose a protein-rich breakfast over the sugary meals and benefit your health so much. This will fuel you throughout the day and boost your energy.

Wear Sunscreen

More than taking good care of your health, while you’re in your 20’s you should take care of your skin too. And by simply wearing sunscreen that has SPF 50+, you’ll have younger looking skin and promote anti-aging benefits. Not to mention, wearing this daily can also help prevent skin cancer.

​Live an Active Life

Aside from eating healthy, you should also live an active life. Not necessarily means enrolling in a gym membership but simply getting an exercise routine. Find a workout that you love, spend 10-20 minutes daily, and move. Include riding a bike, briskly walking to work or join some fun run. When done habitually, it will totally benefit you for decades to come.

Get 7-8 Hours of Sleep Daily

Put all your gadgets out of your bed and establish a sleep routine. A proper 7-8 hours of sleep will energize you, manage your hunger levels, improve the immune system, decrease risk for health conditions, and better your mood. So figure out how much you need, then develop a sleep schedule or an evening routine to help you get there

Fix Your Posture

Your posture says a lot about your personality and also says a lot about how your joints and muscles are working. So assess your posture and fix them. Try to do some core exercises, yoga, or simply practice balance.

Schedule Regular Health Checkups

Though you don’t feel anything or experience any ailments, it’s always valuable to know your health condition. Make it a habit at least once a year to see your doctor, dentist, and other health advisors. They know more about your health and ensure you’re getting the proper medication. After all, health insurance is mandatory now so make use of it.


Your 20s are confusing, stressful, and crucial. It can overwhelm you and can make you feel easily intimidated. So pactice self-care and meditate. This will restore your energy, help you to think better, and improve your overall vitality. Make this a regular part of your routine and maintain good health.

Have Fun

With such a busy and hectic schedule, it can be easy to get stressed. So find a stress-relieving activity that’s good for you and blow off some steam every once in a while. Try to visit a new museum, go to an amusement park, read your favorite book, or hang out with some friends. Just be mindful to do it in healthy ways.
