Plan nutritious and regular meals.

Your diet should include plenty of fruit and vegetables and complex carbohydrates. Reduce the intake of fats, sugar and salt. Eat moderately.

Reduce your intake of coffee and alcoholic drinks.

Try alternatives like drinking water, green tea or healthy low-sugar juices. Drink plenty of water.

Watch your weight.

2. Exercise regularly

Don’t spend the day sitting in front of a computer. Move about as much as possible.

Most adults need 7-8 hours’ sleep a night.

4. No smoking, no illegal drugs

Smoking and drug-taking are harmful to the body. If you have a problem seek professional help.
