It is extremely important to get it right!

Our environment evaluate us on what they see, what they hear and what they feel.

It also has to do with animal instinct and the basic law of our existence. We are naturally attracted to those specimens that look fit and healthy. Fit and energetic people are pre-judged positively.

Studies have found that fifty-five percent of our first impression is determined by our appearance.
