1. Walk when possible

It is very unfortunate that some people always drive their car and pick a cab to a 15 minute-walk;  short distance; instead of walking. An early morning walk is a good form of exercise.

It strengthens your bones and muscles. Walking also improves your mood and peaceful mind for the day's activities.

2. Replace 4-wheels with 2-wheels

Caution: Always wear your helmet and be extra careful when riding in town. Using a 2-wheel is very economical and fast.
