1.Sleep Well !

Natural sleep time decreases with age. During childhood we sleep for upto 12 hours but then we remain energetic for the rest of the time but we see elderly wake up early in the morning, sleeping for just 5-6 hours, that is sufficient for them given the intensity of their daily routine. So getting adequate sleep is the first step to healthy living!

2.Balanced Diet

Our body is mostly water, fats and proteins. With adequate variety in daily diet to include combinations of carbohydrates (sweets, chapati, rice etc), fats (oil, cheese), proteins (Lentils / dals, panneer) and micro-nutrients / vitamins (milk or 1 egg, vegetables) is called the ‘Balanced Diet’.
