Skipping balanced meals
Skipping a balanced meal is not recommended as it can lead to nutrient deficiencies and an imbalanced diet. It’s important to prioritize balanced meals and snacks that provide nutrients and energy to support your body’s needs throughout the day.

Skimping on the smiles
Not only can smiling make you more attractive, but it can also make you look more youthful. The muscles we use to smile also lift the face, making a person appear younger. So instead of opting for a facelift, just try smiling your way through the day—you’ll look younger and feel better.
Keep in mind that it takes about six to 12 weeks of consistent facial exercises to see set changes.

Skipping on the Sun Exposure
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a form of non-ionizing radiation that is emitted by the sun helps in the production of vitamin D, a vitamin essential to human health. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus from food and assists bone development. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends 5 to 15 minutes of sun exposure 2 to 3 times a week.
In spring and summer, 25 percent of the body (the hands, face, neck and arms) is exposed to the sun, and in these seasons, about 8 to 10 minutes of sun exposure at noon produces the recommended amount of vitamin D.

Sun protection is recommended either way since short sun exposure without any shade protection can have short term effects like sun burn and prolonged exposure can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.

Missing out on the real joys
Kurt Vonnegut said, “Enjoy the little things in life because one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.”
💡 Kurt Vonnegut was an American writer and humorist known for his satirical and darkly humorous novels. In a career spanning over 50 years, he published fourteen novels, three short-story collections, five plays, and five nonfiction works.
The difference between joy and happiness lies at the heart of what it means to enjoy the little things:
- Happiness describes a state of being that might depend (at least a little) on what happens around you. Make no mistake, you can absolutely achieve happiness on your own, but outside events and the actions of others still sometimes have an impact.
- Joy, on the other hand, describes a feeling that can be evoked in an instant. The joyful moments you collect each day add up, instilling satisfaction and contentment even if bigger dreams never come to pass.
