Science says that most people need from seven up to eight hours of sleep a day, and this is easily achieved by establishing a routine, removing all distractions and making sure that the room we sleep in is dark and cool," the experts said.
"Everything you eat affects your body, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. You shouldn't go to the extremes of worrying about every calorie, but you should try to follow a healthy and balanced diet. Science says that the best way to eat is the Mediterranean the diet, because it is rich in fruits and vegetables, contains healthy fats, fish and seasonal products, which are usually fresher and contain a lot of nutrients.

Therefore, you should make an effort to eliminate them completely or at least use in a very moderate amount. Women can consume no more than 5-15 grams of alcohol per day, and men – 5-30 g," the scientists said.
