Mental health and physical health needs to go hand in hand for a successful person. Good sleep is important for a sound mind. Growth hormones are secreted only when we sleep. These hormones are much essential for repairing damaged cells and removing toxins from our body.

Keeping pets, gardening, reading books, and listening to soothing music also makes one physically, mentally and emotionally stay balanced. Thus by sticking to this simple, and valuable resolutions one can remain healthy and positive throughout life.
