Set a sleep curfew

As we get older, we slowly realize that one of the luxuries in life is having enough hours of sleep daily. Completing seven to eight hours of rest brings more energy to the body so you can accomplish tasks effectively and efficiently.

Instead of binge-watching your favorite shows and scrolling on your news feed, set a specific hour when it’s time to prioritize sleep to give your body a break and allow it to reboot!


Opt for healthy but yummy food choices

More often than not, students’ and yuppies’ diet lean toward unhealthy options such as processed meals and junk food.

If you can’t prepare your meals daily, next best option is to explore restaurants and stores that offer healthy food choices including fruits and vegetables.

Sacrificing your love for fast-food or sinful sweets in order to maintain a balanced diet can really help in preventing future diet-related illness. Health is wealth!


Choose a workout and do it regularly
