What can I be doing for 10-15 minutes a day to increase (or even simply maintain) my long-term health and well-being?

I'd like to add something, preferably simple, to my day that will yield long term dividends to my health or well-being. What would be the best possible use of that time? It can be a single task or a combination of different things.
Some initial thoughts:
+ Brushing and flossing my teeth
+ Basic exercises (e.g., pushups and pullups)
I'm a med student in my mid-20s, and after seeing a lot of preventable injuries and conditions that are simply due to neglect of one's health maintenance. I'd like to try to come up with some basic things to add to my daily schedule to keep myself healthy over the long haul. Detailed responses and/or links to supporting research appreciated. Thanks!
