10. Set A Goal For Yourself
Goal setting is important for you to live a longer healthier life because it gives you a sense of purpose. This works in two ways, it keeps you disciplined enough to pursue the goals you set your eyes on and you are less likely to live a reckless and abandoned life. We have seen people run over by cars simply because they were crossing the road drunk. Well if you have a goal set for yourself, you won’t be out late, much less binge drinking. Setting goals also ensure that you take care of your health. You will eat right, exercise and sleep just enough so that your body and mind are working optimally to propel you to your goals. With good physical and mental health, you are likely to live longer.
