    • You don’t have to go to the gym and perform some cardio. A simple evening or morning walk in the park can do the wonders. Go to shops in your nearby area by walking instead of driving. Do some cleaning at your home. Spend some time on gardening.

Regular health checkups

  • This is the most important thing which many people ignore and suddenly one day, they feel pain somewhere in their body and get diagnosed for a serious health problem.

    • You can join a community and do things you find joy in and avoid loneliness in your old age. Call your old friend and have a conversation with him over the phone. Visit your relatives often and have a cup of tea with them. In short, re-energize yourself not physically only but mentally too.
