Introduce more fruits and vegetables, take a lot of water. This is not only for overweight people. It is for everyone. Learn how to stay healthy because health is wealth. The only person who can control what you eat or drink. Stop being controlled by what you eat rather, control what you eat. Remember, you are what you eat and drink.
7. Lend a helping hand to someone:
So many people needs help. Help must not come in form of money. Help can come in form of attention and care. Start by helping your immediate family members with one thing or the other and then extend it to the other people outside.
