Alas, everything you do to stay alive increases the universe's entropy. Remember, always, it's system+surroundings. The food you eat, for example.

Some of it is used to make orderly structures to maintain your vessel, but this is driven by other reactions to supply the energy necessary to create the material. You breath out CO2 as the final product of extracting energy from (and increasing the entropy of) the majority of what you ingest.

The constant increase in entropy as a consequence of all events is fundamentally related to giving a direction of time.
