1. Wake Up Early
If you want to be mentally and physically fit, then wake up early in the morning.
Waking up early in the morning keeps energy up throughout the day.
As in morning oxygen levels are high, which helps the brain to develop. Research has shown that people who wake up early have better brain health than those who wake up late.
2. Breakfast Timely
Research says, not having breakfast on time slows down metabolism in the body, which results in fewer calories burned and increases fat.
Not only will it upset your stomach but it also worsens the digestive system with which affects the heart and brain.
So, no matter how busy you are, but don’t forget to take breakfast on time. It helps give you energy throughout the day.
3. Do Intermittent fasting
To not only stay in shape but to make your mind clutter-free and not to put garbage inside your body, fast intermittently.
Intermittent fasting is when you narrow the window to engulf food.
The popular method is 16: 8, in which you limit your eating habits to 8 hours and fast for the remaining 16 hours.
Another one is 5: 2, where you have to fast 2 days a week. This will boost your metabolism and kill the bad bacteria in your body.
4. Get Enough Sleep
Get at least 7–8 hours of sleep per night, because sleep is very important for a healthy mind and body.
It helps the body to relax and function properly.
Lack of proper sleep reduces the immunity in the body, which increases the risk of dangerous diseases like cancer, ulcers, sleep deprivation, and high blood pressure.

5. Meditate Daily
Meditation helps to keep the body and mind stable. With its help, the body increases immunity, burns calories and controls fat.
Meditation also helps control blood circulation and maintains the glow of the skin.
6. Do Not Overeat
Who doesn’t want to eat their favourite things? But sometimes eating uncontrollably turns into overeating.
This not only increases obesity but also diseases related to the heart, liver, and kidney.
Tracking your food and knowing what you are eating throughout the day will help you keep yourself fit. This can also prevent you from overeating.
7. Reduce Caffeine
Reduce the amount of caffeine from your routine.
Taking a cup of tea or coffee is fine, but excess caffeine is not good for your health.
Consuming more caffeine will give birth to irascibility, insomnia, and muscle pain. Not only this, but it also increases the problem of PCOS in women.
So, stay away from caffeine to make your body healthy so you can become wealthy.
8. Say No To Headphones While Sleeping
Using headphones at bedtime does not allow the body to relax properly, which causes laziness, irritability, and tension in the morning. Because of the constant noise in the ears, the mind cannot remain stable while sleeping, and sleep remains incomplete.
So avoid using headphones while sleeping at night.
9. Do Not Take Stress
Stress does not just exhaust you mentally, but also physically and emotionally.
Prolonged stress slows down the digestive system and slows blood flow. It results in a rapid heartbeat and worsens the functioning of the nervous system and weakens the immune system.
So, whenever you feel stressed, keep calm and meditate.
10. Drink More Water
‘Drinking more water’ is the most common thing, but still, no one follows it and forgets to do it.
As our body is made up of 60% water, so drink more water to hydrate it.
Drink at least three litres of water a day. You can also take lassi, coconut water, lemonade or buttermilk. It keeps many diseases away.
