Everyone is very busy these days, and they don’t have time to take care of themselves even though people keep lecturing on self-love, self-care and claim to be self-obsessed. Everyone claims that they love themselves the most and take proper care of themselves which is not true most of the times. The fact of the matter is that they are lying and just trying to satisfy themselves. People are so busy that they don’t eat on time; they don’t do any workout to keep them fit and healthy. All they do is follow their 9 to 5 schedule. They neither take any proper diet nor do they follow any workout plan. Presently, more than six billion people are prone to cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetics, etc. and more than seventy per cent of the populations in the metro are obese. Obesity leads to depression (and it is mostly found in women as compared to men)
