How can I avoid making bad decisions for my health?

Get information! First, congratulations on already making a good decision by asking! That is the first step. We can all use more information about health and the impact our lifestyle and choices can have. Ideally you already have a good relationship with a primary care physician who can be a source of individualized suggestions. Rest, love what you do, be moderate in alcohol, don't smoke, exercise, eat well and less.
