*Chew clove or small cardamom or jaggery with fennel seeds to prevent feeling lethargic post-meal. It maintains blood sugar levels.

*Don’t start your day with caffeine. “It does give you that kickstart, but only temporarily, and at the end of the day slows down your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and switches on your desire to sip on caffeine again,” she remarked.

*Stay hydrated – simplest way. “No fixed amount of glasses in a day. There is no one number. Check the colour of your urine to determine dehydration,” she mentioned.

*Take a break from gadgets. “Spend time with family, not with phones at night. It gives a signal to your body to activate brain functioning, and switch off dullness that occurs due to blue light,” mentioned Kaur.
