We bring colour to the world and prevent the mundaneness of life and should consider ourselves important and give ourselves a break from monotony perhaps a facial or a manicure or a pedicure to maintain our general well-being. Besides, praying five times a day is the perfect way of keeping a regimen and keeping some time to ourselves.
For a healthy upkeep, women should have a constant intake of calcium and get some light cardiovascular exercise to stay fit even in later age, she says. I never had the time to exercise when my daughters were young, but I did walk almost everyday. I still try to keep it up despite a hectic schedule.
Peerzada’s perfect recipe to a positive outlook is to have a passion in life. It could be anything that fulfils you and drives you in life.
