🤔Should we follow daily routine and wake up early even on weekends, holidays and lock down days also??
For our body weekends are same as it works in same way on holidays.
Nature and body follow fixed cycle on each and every day.
If you think on Sundays or on lock down days , eating on odd timings,waking up late and watching tv continously do not effect body then you should think again as effects of all the efforts you do to stay healthy can be hampered by this.
