It is also important to brush your hair at least twice a day. This helps to distribute natural oils.
Read at least once a day, especially on the weekends and during summer when you're not in school. It's also a good idea to read at least 20 minutes per night. You don't have to read a 500-page novel. Even reading things like your favorite magazine, or news will keep your mind healthy and moving.
