- With a curious mind, be aware of your own status, the environment, the happening as well as being thankful for the people and things around you;
- Experience it through mindfulness practice and gratitude exercises;
- It helps to grow the sense of gratitude, improves self-awareness, manages stress effectively, understand physical and mentally changes and needs of yourselves and thereby improve the holistic health.
- Simply move your body or have regular exercise could bring healthy and happiness to you. "Endorphins” will be produced during exercise and it helps us to be more relaxing by improving concentration and sleep quality as well as alleviating the sense of fatigue.

Serve and Give
- Show kindness towards yourself and the others; simply have a smile and say "Hello!” to the others to brighten up a day;
- Be generous to the people in need;
- Devote ourselves selflessly facilitates the secretion of "Dopamine” from our brain, which gives us feelings of satisfaction, happiness and relaxation;
