    But, just in case exercise is not one of your New Year’s resolutions, here’s Flying Tiger’s three top tips for those that want to get in shape without breaking a sweat:

    1. Sleep!

    A good sleeping routine is crucial for your body’s well-being. When you are tired, your body produces a hormone that causes you to consume more calories.

    2. Laugh

    Laughter affects the brain’s frontal lobe and gives you more energy and vitality.

    3. Eat a chilli
