2. Read More books

But with the evolution of television and cinema world, people are losing the habit of reading novels, books and other related stuff.

3. Laugh More

7. Explore More
Exploring doesn’t necessarily mean backpacking and leaving to a tourist destination. Instead, it means to discover things around. For eg. If you are a Delhite there must be many places near you about which you keep hearing from friends and relatives, but you never visit there.
Take out time from your routine life, make a schedule and visit the unexplored world (market places, dining outlets, small shrines, libraries, museums etc.) around you.

8. Most importantly, Work More.
Don’t be an ‘I won’t overtime’ person. Don’t be someone who would only do the work assigned to him. Daily, after end of your working hours and completion of the assigned work, spent at least 15-30 minutes for the critical analysis of how fruitful your day was, what new have you learnt, and what extra should you do to make your work different from others.
9. Donate More
Donating is a noble cause. Yes, we all make donations at times but we should make this a habit. This doesn’t mean that you to have to spend your hard earned money and cut your needs and desire. Instead, we ask you to donate the waste material at your house to the ones who are needy.
For eg. There are many unused dresses in your Almira which are unused for quite a while, your old pair of shoes which getting rotten in your shoe wreck, your books, and other items.
Donate More! This can bring change in someone’s life and will bring at least a smile on your face.
