GET OUTSIDE! A great way to explore your inner monkey and get creative. Preferably barefoot. Checkout Ben Medder (link) for more inspiration.....

Any repetitive daily practice that integrates with your breathing is a valuable thing to commit to. There are many options including yoga, swimming and Eastern practices of qigong or tai chi.

Keeping the body flexible is vital. Commonly gym classes, HIIT workouts, spinning and other popular fitness go-tos focus on contracting and strengthening muscles at the expense of extension and lengthening - both are needed of optimal function. 

Which isn't to say strength is not important! But knowing how to target a range of muscles and spotting which need most attention will help keep your body robust and resilient. Check out these videos for more information.
