‘Reading is good for us’ that we all know. But feeding your thoughts with good stuff is way more important. Reading anything just for the sake of reading is nothing but a waste of time. Well, there are hundreds of books and novels available in the market and on kindle that you can buy and read to pass your time during your daily way to the office and coming back. It is also suggested that if you want to sleep well in the night then stop using any of your gadgets at least one hour prior to going to bed. And the dieticians and nutritionists can’t emphasize enough on a good night sleep to stay healthy and lose weight.
