As I get older my health becomes more of a priority and I try to add more health habits into my routine. 

I already don’t like taking medicine and as I inch closer to 30 I do know that it’s time to focus more on my health to make sure that my body holds up as it ages. 

Therefore, today I thought a good topic to discuss was the health habits to make a routine once you reach your late twenties. 

However, before we get started, please keep in mind that I am not a health care professional and while these are things that I’ve implemented and done successfully myself, if you have any sort of medical condition or aren’t 100% comfortable with my suggestions please talk to a medical professional before trying any of the products/services mentioned in this article.

Get Tested

I’m the absolute worst when it comes to going to the doctor. 

I’ll do everything in my power to avoid going. I mean, I literally have to feel like death before making an appointment. 

However, I’m not a spring chicken anymore, and I know it’s important to get certain tests done (even when feeling fine) to make sure that everything is okay. 

Well, good news, if you’re like me and hate going to the doctor as well, you can get tested from the comfort of your home these days. 

Recently, I found out about a company called LetsGetChecked and they are the solution that I’ve been looking for. 

In a nutshell, they allow you to monitor, track and improve your health right from the comfort of your home. 

Results are typically provided within 2-5 days and you can order a range of tests from their website. 

I’m starting out with the cholesterol test, but they also offer tests that check sexual health, women’s health, men’s health, and general wellness

If you’d like to give them a try for yourself make sure you use my code “Healthy20” to get 20% off of your purchase AND keep an eye out for my full review coming once I get my results back where I’ll go into detail about the entire experience. 

Take Vitamins

Even if you get all of your tests done and you’re in the best health of your life, it can still be beneficial to take vitamins. 

I personally can’t swallow pills so I usually have to take chewable or gummies and not all vitamins taste well. I was taking Airborne, but I only like the grapefruit and very berry ones, which are hard to find without the other flavors AND it was becoming a huge waste of money with me being miss picky so I switched to itSpray

itSpray, as the name hints, is a spray form of vitamins that you spray under your tongue so it can go directly into your bloodstream for quick absorption. The best part is it doesn’t contain any sugar or calories. 

Currently, there are three varieties: “boost”, “charge”, and “dream”, which can help you feel your best throughout the day with “dream” making it easier for you to transition into sleep.

Take Care of Your Skin 

Okay, I know, technically taking care of your skin isn’t really a health habit, but I figured it should be included on this list. 

When you’re older you’ll be thankful that you moisturized daily and created a skincare routine despite the extra amount of time that it takes you to get ready some days.

When it comes to taking care of your skin, it could be something as simple as putting on lotion each day to keep your skin moisturized, applying sunscreen before leaving the house, or even taking a bubble bath once a week and using LifeAround2Angels to keep your skin feeling silky soft. 

Lastly, make sure you don’t forget about your eyes. 

I know I’ve done a lot of late nights and early mornings in my lifespan so far AND no one wants to have huge bags under their eyes during their retirement years when trying to live their best lives lol.  

For this, I recommend adding a product such as EVERYDAZE into your skincare routine to make sure your eye area stays moisturized and you can keep your eyes looking youthful for as long as possible. 

Make Time For Sleep

Sleep has so many benefits. However, when you’re in your teens and early twenties you always are on the go (or I was at least). 

But, now as I near 30, I realize just how important sleep is. 

For one, it helps keep away under-eye bags, but its a great way to recharge your body. 

I know drifting off to sleep isn’t always something that’s easy, especially if you have a busy brain like myself. I can physically be exhausted but my mind will still be running at 1000 miles per hour. 

If you have a hard time falling asleep you can try things like liquid melatonin, Moodbeli Calming Adaptogen, or itSpray Dream (mentioned earlier).

Go To The Dentist

Even if you brush and floss twice a day, you still need to go to the dentist at least once a year.

It’s not my favorite thing to do either as I don’t like having my mouth stretched open and someone playing around in there. 

However, if you lose your teeth as an adult, you’re not going to grow new ones. I mean, you could purchase dentures, but I’d prefer not to freak my future grandkids out by them seeing my teeth soaking one night lol. 

Work Out

Working out has so many other benefits outside of getting into shape. 

Staying physically active can increase your lifespan, lower blood pressure, help you keep your joints loose and so much more. 

Now, I’m not saying you have to make a complete 360 lifestyle change to incorporate working out, but doing something as simple as going for a quick 15-minute walk a few times a week or setting a step goal for yourself each month is enough to get you started and help you benefit from some of the health benefits. 

I don’t know about you, but when I do have grandkids, I plan to be running and playing outside with them just like my mom does with my boys.

Conclusion: Make These Health Habits Part of Your Routine Before You’re 30

I know these days everyone is busy.

Between work, kids, school, and random life events incorporating the things on this list may seem almost impossible. 

However, I’m someone who loves taking shortcuts and doing things in the easiest way possible, therefore, I’m here to tell you it can happen AND you’ll feel a lot better as you age adding in a few of these health habits. 

You don’t have to add them to your lifestyle all at once. Just try to make a few changes and see which benefits you start to experience.

Have you reached your thirties yet? What health habits do you wish you would have incorporated into your lifestyle?

  1. Great advice.
    When I was 21 my father had a serious heart attack and it made me think I could be next. So I started working out, eating better, watching my weight, taking vitamins, staying out of the sun, etc. Forty years later, I am reaping the rewards of that. I’m healthy, taking no meds, my teeth are in great shape, just a few wrinkles and I feel great for my age.
    It’s worth it to really think about how we treat our bodies for your future.
