Schedules and punctuality

According to our expert advice from Dr. Bhati, she suggests that you should always stick to a schedule when it comes to food, yoga and fruits which results in your punctuality. Sometimes you need to go with the flow and not plan every moment. By all means, plan all the important details, however when it comes to the other little details, you should simply let them fall into place themselves. Another good tip is to keep a detailed diary, so if you do happen to forget something, you can always refer back to it.

If you have difficulty with sleeping you can find a pillow that fits your body, dim the lights and listen to some soothing music, you´d be surprised how relaxing this is. Close your eyes and savour these calm moments in the runup to the wedding.
