Exercise means that you move your muscles and condition them to become stronger. It also facilitates for better cardiovascular function. You can lie down on your carpet and do some stretches and push-ups every day; you can buy an exercise video and use it at home; you can jog every morning; you can install a treadmill at home so that you get some cardio exercise done in the evenings. As you can see, there is no hard and fast rule; just burn calories so that you don’t gain weight.

Let go of the stress in your life and appreciate yourself for who you are. Improve your relationships and be happy with the work that you do. Take time off to relax and have fun alone and with those close to you.
