The Forbes report on the lifestyle of the wealthiest people states that Bill Gates prefers to wash the utensils himself after having dinner. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has a similar habit, he likes to cook and wash dishes at home. Both the billionaires have the same explanation they want to set an example in front of their children so that they do not get spoiled and do not become careless in the pursuit of money and wealth. They should understand the value of money and not take any work as small. However, a surprising fact also came to the fore that none of these billionaires likes to do laundry.

It is said that humility is the first condition to being a great leader. Whether you want to be successful in life or business, humility is a good habit to follow. Legendary author Gene Collins studied several successful CEOs in the business world and found that they all had two traits in common – humility and a strong will. The two qualities seem to contradict each other, but they are not. The world salutes the humble and down-to-earth leaders. Anand Mahindra, chairman of the Mahindra Group, says his company employs thousands of people with higher qualifications, including engineers, scientists, and economic experts. He says that he simply leads them and never pretends that he knows everything. Working as a humble leader is what makes Anand Mahindra great.
For success and good health, the most important thing after a healthy and balanced meal is adequate and sound sleep. A lot of people have this misconception that sleeping less can lead to more success. These people are spoiling their health by doing overwork. Research says that those who get busy with 4 hours of sleep start getting old 10 years before the time. In such a situation, the right solution is to sleep and wake up at a certain time and there should be a fixed sleeping routine. At least 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep is required for adults. During sound sleep, the damaged cells of the body are reconstructed and the body gets energized. That is why adequate sleep is necessary to fully recharge the body and mind.
Aging also comes faster by eating excessively, consuming more sugar or salt, or having foods made from refined flour (maida). The reason for this is that foods made from refined flour and fried in refined oil draw nutrients from the body for their absorption, which leads to a deficiency of vitamins and minerals in the body. Due to this, the body starts aging quickly. Aging also comes quickly due to overeating, frequent eating, and eating unhealthy foods, because these things increase obesity. Excess obesity increases the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, for healthy aging, it is necessary that food should be eaten in moderation, the amount of refined flour, sugar, and salt should be moderate, and at least 8 hours of sound sleep should be taken every day. Sleeping early at night and getting up early in the morning, eating healthy food, as well as exercising for at least 2 hours per week are essential requirements to stay healthy. Research says that if someone is not able to exercise every day, but if s/he does the same exercise for 2 hours a week, then also the benefits remain the same.
