    20s Health tips
    By eating a healthy diet including all of the food pyramid foods in my diet I can reduce my risk for a chronic health problem and maintain a healthy weight. Protecting my eyes and skin from the sun can help me not get skin cancer, vision problems, early aging, or any other issues. Exercising for at least 30 minutes a day and getting enough sleep is also important for me to grow muscle, for me to build bone, and for me to refresh my body for the next day, which allows me to make good choices.

    Eating a healthy diet just as I did when I was 20 and keeping a healthy weight helps reduce my risk of chronic medical disease. Exercising 30-60 minutes a day and sleeping 6-8 hours also would help keep me healthy. If I choose to have sex in my thirties, as well as any other age, I would have it safely to prevent myself from getting diseases such as HIV. Protecting my skin from the sun and moisturizing it may also help reduce my risk of disease, and I should really do both at any age.

    In my 40s I can get menopause which can occur 12 months after my last menstrual cycle.

If I wanted to wear sunscreen I would have to wear at least SPF 15 to be protected for a while.
