Drink plenty of water, as every cell in your body requires water to function well. Water accounts for approximately 60 percent of your body weight.

Ensure you expose yourself to 30 minutes of morning light, by getting outside into the natural daylight, when there is a moderate amount of the sun’s rays. Natural light helps regulate you sleep-wake cycles and boosts your Vitamin D supply. It has been found that at least 1,000 genes that govern almost every tissue in your body are regulated by Vitamin D3, the active form of Vitamin D. Sunlight lifts the spirits, as it increases the brain’s release of a hormone called seratonin: this hormone boosts your mood and helps you feel calm and focused.
