A good sleeping schedule is important
Sound sleep plays an important role in both your mental and physical health. It does not only improve productivity and performance but also enhances the quality of one’s life.

Stop smoking
Smoking has negative effects on almost all organs of the body. It also hurts a person’s overall well-being. Globally, smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable death. Both men and ladies are at higher risk of death from smoking.
