consider the options. Unplanned pregnancies will rearrange your life goals. Find out here why you should stop using the ‘Pull Out Method.’
6. Drink in moderation, if at all.
You should consider the U.S. dietary health guidelines for consuming alcohol. They suggest no more than seven drinks a week, and no more than three in one day. Overdoing it can lead to weight gain, skin problems, looking aged, liver damage and overall health issues.
7. Get insured.
As much as you might think it’s cool to say that you never have to go to the doctor, it’s not. If all you have to go for is an annual check up great, but go!
Insurance is not an option; it’s a necessity. You never know when you may get into an accident, develop some rare disease or illness, get pregnant (or get someone pregnant). Trust me, insurance will be your best friend then!
8. Learn to love your body.
Learn to appreciate all that your body does for you. Even if you don’t have the perfect butt or the flattest stomach, know that your temple is yours. Once you learn to love yourself, you will consciously take care of yourself, keeping yourself healthy and living longer.
9. Spend quality time with friends in real life.
Not only will it help you de-stress, but studies show that socializing is good for your mental health and heart health. At least one animal study also suggests that it may result in your body burning more calories. So even when things get crazy-busy, make some time to catch up with your friends and family—your health will thank you!
