1)EXERCISE – Yup! You know that already, you do have that written in your time table too but somehow you fail to do it. How about encouraging you to exercise by listing unbeatable benefits of exercising daily. So, to begin with, studies have shown that people who workout daily have more energy throughout the day.

3)MEDITATION- Mind play the most crucial role but we don’t pay attention to its needs like we do for our body and we eat and workout for a healthy body, we usually don’t do the same for our mind. No, I do not mean that you have to eat extra or workout extra for your mind. Mind requires a different kind of feeding and relaxing that is fulfilled when we meditate. Meditation is extremely good for you and for your peace and calm. It trains your mind. It helps in deciding what task to focus on and what to ignore. Meditating will provide you with a lot more mental energy. So, folks meditate daily for 10 minutes and that’s enough!
4)FOLLOWING YOUR HOBBY/PASSION – Following your hobby or passion brings a sense of fulfillment. It excites you, it motivates you to keep following your hobby/passion and keep on improving. If you work on your hobby long enough it can eventually be a source of income perhaps. Follow your hobby/passion in your leisure time, it will make you feel complete and at peace.
