Just get your body moving. And if you can, try working out. You don’t need weights. You’ll find plenty of different body workouts that require no weights at all .

Without a proper sleeping schedule, your body and your mind will not receive the required rest that it needs. So create a sleep schedule and adhere to it with discipline.
