You don’t have to run a marathon or starve yourself to death to see yourself in the prime of health. Sometimes, it is the little changes you make in your everyday routine that will make a big difference. Here are a few simple, practical and fun things you could easily adopt in your everyday routine to improve your general well-being.

1. Start your day with plenty of water, preferably lukewarm water. Drizzle some honey if possible. Honey and lime in water can help you watch your waist line.

2. Chew your food slowly. Take time to eat. Savor every morsel that goes in. This improves digestion and helps your intestines absorb nutrients efficiently.
