You are a young professional in your late twenties, and have just realized you are not
invincible after all. What healthy practices do you start to ensure the best quality of life moving forward?

Over the last few months I've discovered that I am, indeed, not invincible. Many tests have been done, many more to follow, but is increasingly probably that I have non-bacterial prostatitis. Fun!
I used to be able to live pretty hard. Think "Late night college parties followed by a 10 mile run at 6 am" hard. Now, at 27, if I don't get a full 8 hours of sleep before work I'm dragging. I guess this is the natural progression towards "get off my lawn, you young whippersnappers!"
So now I'm on a health kick. I want to make sure that my actions today don't lead to a terrible future. I already exercise and weight train, have started drinking tea, have dropped beer, and am in general trying to live / eat better.
Which leads to my question: What practices have you implemented to be healthier, and procure a better, longer life? What super healthy foods do you eat? Any vitamins / supplements that made a significant impact on your life?
