10 practical suggestions are given below which can do magic and have a significant on your health.

1-Accept and Value Yourself:

Do not consider yourself inferior. Always try to value yourself.no one is perfect in this world. Everyone has his way of doing things with positive and negative points. Everyone comes from different socio-political background and has different thinking pattern. Do not compare yourself with others. Always be satisfied with what you have.

2-Keep Fit and Active:

Daily walk can diametrically change your life and can have positive effect on mental health. Try to do regular exercise to make yourself mentally fit.

It is rightly said that healthy and good food always proves to be very fruitful for health. Food with full of nutrients always makes you feel energetic and passionate. Always go for a balanced diet to keep yourself healthy.

4-Drink Sensibly:

Drinking too much can be dangerous for health. As It is said, “excess in everything is bad.” Always try to adopt a balanced approach while doing any sort of work.

5-Quiet your Mind:

 For calmness of mind, go to a place where you can sit peacefully and meditate on appeasing your mind. With the simple formula, you will experience a great change in your mental as well as physical health.

Always try to socialize with the people because it saves you from getting frustrated and prevents you from getting involved in bad activities. Join health gathering and sports club to channelize your energy positively.

Be realistic in choosing your goals because this thing never makes you disappointed. Going for achievable goals always keeps you motivated and saves you from being dissatisfied.

8-keep in Touch with Friend and Family:

In this age of materialism, we have no time to stay with our family and friends. The absence of this kind of gatherings makes us dull. To avoid being occupied with negative feelings, we should enjoy the company of our family and friends.

9-Take Time for Yourself:

 If you are always obsessed with the idea of work, you will get disturbed in the days to come. Take some time to relax. Enjoy every moment of life to keep yourself healthy. Aristotle says, “Happiness is the highest good.”
