In addition to having a balanced diet and rich in products from the garden, it is important to consume plenty of water throughout the day and adopt healthy lifestyle habits, such as sleeping well, practicing physical activities, meditating, maintaining good interpersonal relationships and abandoning harmful habits, such as smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages.
