At this point in your life, you most likely have a family and/or career, so you don't have time to hit the gym as you did in your 30s. This article will give you some tips for staying healthy in your 20s.
This being the case, you have to find ways to increase your physical activity over the course of a normal day. Make several small changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
You could also do some isometric exercises at your desk if you work in an office. When you get home from work, play with your kids or dog and do something active.
You should also try to go to the gym when you can. For young people, working out is about looking good and increasing strength, as you get older it becomes more about preventing bone loss and keeping your body strong. It also helps your body bounce back from injury faster, which is another important attribute as time goes on.
At this stage, it is imperative to eat healthily, and strategically. Eat a good size healthy breakfast, it will kick start your metabolism and keep your level of energy up for the whole day. Some nutritionists recommend eating two light meals a couple of hours apart in the afternoon instead of one big meal for lunch.
Your 20s can be some of the best years of your life, as long as you don't let the increased health risks get in the way. Take this advice to heart, and stay healthy.
