Here are some heath tips that can come in handy this New Year for you to make realistic and feasible resolutions ensuring a holistic approach for having good health.
- Exercise – A top priority:
- Rise early and you will find that you are able to accommodate exercise amidst your busy schedule.
- You get seven extra hours in a week and 30 hours in a month, if you rise an hour earlier every day. Make sure you go to bed early enough to have a good night sleep.
- Exercise every day rather than exhausting yourself in one day.
- Meditate every day:
