A love of danger and continually pushing your body to its limit will take a toll later in life. Heavy alcohol or drug consumption will also catch up to you. Even forgetting sunblock will eventually cost you. At the very least eat right, start a skincare routine, and stay hydrated!

Protect your back. Get a strong core first. Lift with your legs. Pay attention to sitting and standing posture. Spines don’t really recover. You don’t want to have a bad back at 30 like I did.

This will sound obvious, but it wasn’t to me. When a joint hurts, listen to it. If you’re at the gym or something, don’t ‘push through’ the pain. Don’t run on a sore ankle — that kind of stuff. If you have access to it, go to a physiotherapist for any joint pain, even if it’s minor.

Teeth. I wish I had taken better care of my teeth.

Remember that your physical shape will change as you get older. Clinging desperately onto a past appearance of your body will potentially harbor low self-esteem, grief, and distress. Treat yourself with understanding, respect, appreciation, and kindness. Create that body positivity — you deserve to feel good about yourself.

Take care of your ears. Don’t go to concerts or very loud places unprotected. Don’t listen to music with headphones for too long at a time and too loud. You only have one pair of ears and when the beeping starts to hit, you’re screwed for life.

I wish I had started wearing sunglasses outside sooner than 35. Between snowboarding, skiing, boat fishing, always at a camp or on the water, doing something (wake boarding, kitesurfing, diving, etc.) I’ve developed pretty deep crow’s feet (which really doesn’t bother me), but definitely makes me look older than my actual age of 43.

Learn to keep an eye on your blood pressure. It’s important later.

Get good eating habits while you’re young! You can get away with eating junk food when you’re young — but bad eating habits tend to stay with you. People are very reluctant to change their diets. And when you’re older, bad eating habits will give you high cholesterol and atherosclerosis; increasing your risk of cancer, etc.

Sleep is so important as well. Try to get on a schedule if you’re able to ASAP. Seven to nine hours of sleep will do so much more for your long-term physical and mental health than a lot of these tips. Don’t skimp, and reevaluate your time budget if you find yourself in a routine where you’re continually entering a sleep deficit.

I started moisturizing at 40. I kinda wish I started earlier, like 30 or 35. You don’t need much, it won’t break the bank, but it’ll ward off the crow’s feet for a spell. You’re gonna age, so it depends on how well you wear it and how prepped you are to do so.

Spent my twenties pushing the envelope of an extreme sport. Now, in my thirties, my knees are shot, among other joint issues. I’m sure it will only get more rough from here. The thing is, I’ve heard this all before when I was younger. It doesn’t resonate until it’s real. And by then, its too late.

—Subterminal303

Okay, well past forties (I’m 64 if you have to know), but I still downhill ski a couple times a week during the season and mountain bike year-round. Secret? Start regular exercise now, include some yoga, take up a lifelong sport, and don’t stop.

—Skiffline

Absolutely, I wouldn’t trade the memories, but wish I’d taken better precautions and had more common sense! I don’t think you really register your own mortality until you’re in your thirties, and by then it’s too late. Injuries stop healing properly, you stop bouncing back as quickly.

Electric toothbrush, wish I had known how good they are earlier in life. Doubt I’d have nearly as many cavities.

Try to eat right…You can save your future self a ton of diseases/issues!

I partied very hard in high school and college. I’m 30-ish and my body is trashed; everything hurts all of the time. I can barely make a closed fist. My knees, back, etc, just in constant pain. Plus, 15 years of smoking a pack of day is catching up to me pretty badly. It was nuts how quickly I went from an invincible twentysomething into an old man.

I had a dermatologist say if you can see by daylight inside, you should be wearing sunscreen. I thought that was a bit extreme, but I started wearing sunscreen daily and did so for 25 years. I live in an extremely sunny place. I also started wearing sunglasses. I am older now and have perfect skin. I have no vision problems. People made fun of me for being so conscientious, but now I am glad I did.

Wear good shoes and pay attention to even minor foot pain, especially if you’re on your feet all day. Once you have a problem with your feet, I don’t think it ever really goes away.

Be mindful of high-impact activities like running and jumping. Biking and swimming are good forms of exercise that are easy on the joints. Also, staying well hydrated helps the cartilage in your joints to stay healthy for longer.

Yeah, I’m in my mid-forties and I’m feeling this post. I’m glad that the youth of today have a lot more information at their disposal. Yes, we had a hell of a time in the ’90s, but from what I have seen, the next generations have started to learn from our experiences. Everything in moderation folks, there’s always a lot more life to live.

#1 I wouldn't trade my surfing days for anything. Yeah, it took a toll, but man what rides! And the battles! Muay Thai and Eskrima. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

#14 It’s not too late in your thirties, unless you didn’t take care of anything, i.e., bad diet, drugs, no exercise and smoking (all 4).

Yes, regular exercise and healthy eating work a treat when aging. I always joke with my friend (who turned 40) that we are only able to drink beer nowadays (jack & coke are a thing of the past). Switching off the TV & Netflix also helps.
