1. Sleep Without Distractions

It’s 11 pm and you are still surfing through your work emails or reading about the latest trends in your area of expertise. Sleep is the most important aspect of good health and good health is quintessential for peak performance at work.

2. Physical Excursion

Your physical excursion is a must to keep the blood pumping through the nook and corner of your body. Take out at least 15 minutes of running, jogging, yoga, stretching with your partner every single morning to maintain health and we-time with your life partner.

3. Pep-up Your Sex-Life

In the run-up to meeting deadlines at work, completing household errands, living up the expectations of being a great parent, leaves you to ignore the crucial differentiator of your personal health and personal relationship – your sex-life. Pep-up some intimate time with your partner and see the difference it makes in clearing stress off your mind.

4. Quality Time for Kids

Your kids are the ones around whom your life goals and happiness factor revolve. Nothing can be more gratifying than playing cricket with your kids on a Sunday afternoon or taking them on a drive up hills and humming songs!

5. Take a Break

All work and no play is a recipe for monotony and dissatisfaction. Take time off at least once in six months to take a complete one-week break, visit a new place and let yourself untie from work!
