SSD : reduce wear & tear

What modifications should be made to reducing wear on SSD? I have read about "noatime" for example but did not get it EXACT how and when you enter this in FSTAB! If it is wrong, the computer will not start o The entire installation is corrupt.
This is my current fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=437af9a5-5c9e-4a15-b07f-22640de64986 /boot ext2 defaults 0 2
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-swap_1 none swap sw 0 0

I used LVM2 when partitioning.

I'm not completely sure HOW I will mount the disks to access fstab if I would have to boot from a MINTSTICK o then try to edit fstab.

Here is how noatime is entered in /etc/fstab for "/":

# / was on /dev/sdb3 during installation
UUID=eab895db-c4f0-407d-b95f-30d3d666782b /               ext4    noatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
