Many monks already believe in the power of meditation. It is said to improve your health physically as well as mentally.

Friends Vs. Job
Your job takes care of you on a day to day basis. What happens when you get sick or injured? Will your work take care of you then? We all know the answer to that one; as great as work is, it can never compete with good friends. Keep in touch with the ones you love through thick and thin, for they will always be there for you.

This is more of a health tip, so drink at least two liters of water each day. If you’re trying to lose weight, drink it before your meal to fill you up to prevent from over eating.
