Regular exercise makes you fit, gives a general sense of well-being, improves appetite and sleep and makes the heart and circulation, lungs and respiration work more efficiently.

Avoid Alcohol:

Avoiding alcohol is one of the cornerstones of anti aging lifestyle. Alcohol is attracted to cell membranes, and it concentrates there. When it reaches nerve cell membranes, the alcohol can change the function of nerve cells and thus affect behavior. In addition to death, it has been associated with many conditions detrimental to the body, including suppression of vitamin functions and appetite, impairment of blood cell production, brain cell death, and hormone imbalances.
Chronic alcohol use can cause a vitamin deficiency, damage to the frontal lobes of the brain, an overall reduction in brain size and increase in the size of the ventricles. The digestive system of alcoholics is unable to absorb vitamin B1 (thiamine) and deficiency of thiamine can cause various problems affecting the brain. Maintain good health by cutting down the alcohol.

Positive attitude:

Positive thinking helps with stress management and improves the health. Happier people are less likely to suffer heart attacks, strokes, and pain from conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Give yourself permission to smile or laugh, especially during difficult times. Seek humor in everyday happenings. When you can laugh at life, you feel less stressed.
Positive attitudes also help one to withstand troubles and problems, make correct decisions, and overcome obstacles. People who volunteer live longer and enjoy life more than those who do not volunteer. By helping others, we help ourselves. Positive thoughts are also more conducive of creativity, as a positive brain is more willing to generate new ideas. Those who think positively are more persistent and willing to follow through with new ideas. Also these thoughts can motivate healthy behaviors, such as eating right and being active.
A root-cause for health problems is negative thinking and it also drags you down. Practice yoga to remove negative attitudes. Also aroma therapy or soft music can help to keep the mind peace and calm.


Sleep is vital to our health and well being. If you do not get the recommended eight hours of sleep a night, you can spend your day lethargic, irritable, and lack concentration while performing important tasks. Also lack of sleep will cause weight gain. You are more susceptible to illnesses if you do not get enough sleep. The importance of sleep plays a direct role in our overall health, a critical physiological function, and is indispensable for your intellectual development. Sleep at least for about 8 hours daily.
