We all have experienced bad days and rough times in our lives.

You also will get stronger not just physically (body and immune system) but emotionally and mentally.

You can start from the simplest activities like sleeping better, waking up earlier or taking a special time for breakfast (new and healthier recipes).
Make a solo travel
