You're in your 20s! What can you do to live a healthier life? Be healthier with one — or all — of the steps below. Get the conversation started at your next well-woman visit with this list.

 

Every day, I will try to:

  • Wear a helmet when riding a bike and wear protective gear for sports

  • Wear a seat belt in cars and not text and drive

I will talk to my doctor at least once a year about:
