9. Write a note 

When you’re healthier already, your body, soul, and mind are fresh and calm. It’s the right time to evaluate yourself. What is your weakness, strength, what you have and haven’t done. Write it down on your notebook. 

If you aren’t sure what your goal is, think about it. Once you find it, write it down. Then move to the next that defines your vision and mission. Think about it slowly and carefully. This note will help you to know what you should do next when you come back to your house. It also can help you to be a better version of yourself.
