#7 keep your personal hygiene at the highest levels
washing hand
Every single day wash your hands before eating, before cooking, before feeding your child, after visiting the washroom wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, particularly when you come back from an outdoor visit and keep your phones disinfected. yeah, you heard it right. your phone particularly if it is a touchscreen phone has been found to contain the most number of bacteria which is commonly found in poop. You keep your phones on your table you touch it very frequently and you do not clean it. So disinfect it very frequently using spirit or other commonly available antiseptic solutions such as Detoll or savlon.

You should also be brushing your teeth twice a day. this is also very important to prevent you from a hacked load of diseases.
#8 keep your stress levels at a minimum
Try practicing yoga, meditate for five or ten minutes every single day, try reading some books or listening to music whichever habit suits you. lowering your stress goes a long way to keep you healthy.
#9 Self-medication
don’t take any medicines without asking or consulting your doctor. India is one such country where you can get any medicine from a local pharmacy or a medical shop without any prescription from the doctor. Taking medicines such as antibiotics makes you resistant to antibiotic. It will also destroy the friendly bacteria in your intestines leading to diseases such as diarrhea and indigestion. Do not ask the medical shop guide for medicines and medical help and instead always consult your doctor before you take any kind of medicines. Even the vitamin supplements that you take without a prescription is not recommended. Did you know that, all the vitamin supplements that you are taking you are actually flushing your money in your toilet? because literally all these vitamins are excreted in urine and you finally end up flushing those vitamins in the toilet.
