    A true friendship is built on at least three factors. The first factor is respect. If we want to have true friendship, we need to respect our friends. So, they will start to be open to you. And then they will start to consider you as a good friend. The second factor is trust. We need to start trusting our friends. If you want to have a true friendship, you can start by sharing your feeling with your friends. That way, they will be comfortable with you because you think you trust them. And the last factor is honesty. We need to be honest to our friends. We can do it by sharing our secrets and to be honest to each other. That way, a true friendship will be built on respect, trust, and honesty and of course through time.

  • Don’t Skip Breakfast

    Breakfast cannot be skipped because it is the most important meal pf the day. Firstly, if you skip breakfast in the morning, you will be more tired than the usual students who don’t skip their breakfast. Secondly, your stomach will hurt if you suddenly stop eating breakfast for your daily eating routine. Thirdly, you are more likely to be hungrier than those who eat breakfast. In fact, if you are having activities for more than eight hours, especially students you will consume higher value of carbohydrate, fat and protein needs. You have to fulfill your nutrition needs in order to do activities effectively. In short, you will need to maintain your breakfast routine for your health.
