For those who are still smoking, you should think of your own health as well as the consequences for families and others.

Third, have regular medical check-ups. Early detection of most diseases, including cancers, heart problems and diabetes increases the survival rate. Immediate action is always the best option to help prevent such diseases from progressing to a chronic stage. Anyone above the age of 40 should go for medical check-ups twice a year.

Forth, eat healthily. You must be aware what food you put into your mouth, when you eat and how much you eat. You need a balanced diet suggested by the food pyramid. Be moderate in your diet, but do not overeat. Make sure you eat the right amount of food to ensure optimum health. Eat your regular meals and only eat at reputable outlets if you plan to eat out.

Fifth, learn how to handle your stress efficiently. No one can avoid stress. You cannot avoid stress due to a hectic life, weather, age and etc. Too much stress is not a good thing as it can affect your health.
