#6. Ritual of Early Awakening: Most of us sleep far more than we need to. An average person can get by on six hours – and remain perfectly healthy and alert. Remember, it’s the quality of sleep that’s important, not quantity. Get up daily along with the sun and don’t forget to have a smile on your face. To have a sound sleep, never eat after 8:00PM. Fifteen minutes before and after sleep shows a substantial impact on your subconscious mind. So, take care of your thoughts, words and deeds in these hours. Anirudh Pulugurtha 7
