    Quit Smoking Once And For All

    From Redditor u/YouWillGiveMeTP:

    If you smoke cigarettes - quit. It's all sh*ts-n-giggles when you're in your 20s, but it'll catch up to you way quicker than you think. If you quit now your body still has time to heal much of the damage that has been done to it.

    Fitness Is Important

    From Redditor u/Dirtydirtyf***:

    A good fitness regime is key to health as you grow, but also: Don't just think about strength, work on your flexibility, and stretch. Take some yoga for beginners class to learn if you have the guts. Your body will thank you for not allowing it to grow stale and stiff as you age.
