What should you do if you want to become healthy. A step to step guide would be cool if someone would do that for me :D

Hi Perrin,
Essentially the guide to health is common sense.
Refrain from over use of alcohol. Don't use any sort of drugs or addicting substances. Eat a well balanced diet and exercise.

Perrin, always wash your hands. Wash in between fingers, under nails and on all surfaces for at least ten seconds per wash. Alcohol sanitizers such as Germ-x are also very effective. Wash before and after eating, after using the bathroom, (every time) and whenever you come into contact with something "dirty". Keep your environment neat and clean. Handwashing is the number one way to prevent the spread of infections. This will help you stay healthy!!

Everyone has own step. No one is same. But importantly, keep you laugh everyday, and, more importantly, keep others laugh.
