When we get up in the morning, the first thing we do is check our phones.Let the mornings be for a digital detox, even its for 30 minutes after you wake up. make sure you don't have your meals before the screen. Spend your meal break with family just like you did with colleagues at work.

ME TIME IS CRUCIAL:-
Read, listen to music, gaze outside the window or just take a nap- do whatever works for you. Take a cup of tea o coffee and unwind yourself for a few minutes.
