You might find it a very tough and weird challenge to keep aside your phone for even a while, but you should know that the habit of sticking to your phone 24/7 can have a lot of negative impact on your health. So, can’t you try and spend some time away from the phone enjoying the real presence and not the virtual one of people around you, at least for your health?

6. Don’t neglect your dental health

How many of you tend to brush and floss every night before going to sleep? Not many. But do you know that studies have proven that regular flossing can add up to 6 years to your life, as it is indirectly associated with heart diseases? So, if you are someone who doesn’t give much attention to dental health, start doing it today if you want a healthy life. 

7. Read something

Reading has shown to have both physical as well as mental benefits like stimulating growth and reducing stress. As it is important to take care of your physical self, it is also important to take care of your brain, and reading is a workout for your brain. So, it is always healthy to read a few pages a day to stay mentally fit.
