-Take a vacation/break after few months of routine work.
- At a young age, our body has the capacity to maintain itself. With age this capacity becomes weak. As we eat more and exercise, work or play less we fall prey to weight problems and obesity. These in turn cause loss of elasticity of blood vessels increasing blood pressure leading to cardiac diseases. For prevention, AVOID JUNK FOOD (fast foods, soft drinks, ice-cream and oily food) and practice YOGA or light exercises to maintain flexibility of muscles and arteries.
- Weight training should be done to increase strength and stabilities o f our joints rather than for body-building purposes, Focus more on stretching exercise with strengthening exercise.
