We need to change our late-night lifestyle

  • Letters

IT’S interesting to occasionally read letters pertaining to the lifestyle that we lead.

We eat a little too much and literally non-stop. It’s live to eat and not eat to live. To me anything that can be described as an “overdose” and in this case over–eating is not good for health. I advocate that “we are what and how we eat”.

Our daily lifestyle is very rigid. It can be tiring and stressful. At the break of dawn we are already on the road heading for work and we are back home at the earliest by 8pm.

Once at home rightfully it’s time to rest and relax and spend some quality time with the family before retiring to bed. But for some of us this is not the case.

They are back on the streets attending to their social obligations, meeting for a chit-chat with friends at food outlets (pic) and the sessions can last till after midnight.

And that’s the cycle of life that we have. Leading such a hectic and stressful lifestyle without proper sleep and rest is bad for health.

A tired body and mind too will make one unproductive at work the next day.

Let’s therefore live and enjoy life.

There’s time for everything – time to work to earn a living, time to relax and time to indulge in sporting activities.

At night it’s time to sleep. It’s early to bed and early to rise to feel fresh the next morning.

Let’s not do things “as if there’s no tomorrow”. It’s time for us to change for the better and that is to lead a more regulated lifestyle.

I would like to suggest that during week days all business activities should end at the latest by 10pm.

For weekends business hours can be extended to midnight to accommodate the “Saturday Night Fever”.

I believe cutting short the business hours will to some extent help reduce the social ills.

Let’s lead a regulated and more meaningful lifestyle and that too while we can.

Let’s be happy!
