Responsibilities are the things that you need to do in order to enjoy the things that you want to do. Responsibilities are very important activities that you need to do that include several tasks that have to be done effectively and at timely intervals so that your actions will help you to maintain a healthy mind and body, and also help maintain environmental and social systems in good working order.

If a life form takes more then it gives it will become out of balance with the laws of physics, and will eventually collapse and experience failures. Preventive maintenance is needed in order to live a good quality life with peace and harmony. One important responsibility is the responsibility of learning and becoming more knowledgeable. Neglecting the responsibility of learning will always have devastating consequences. So never stop learning. Other important responsibilities include proper hygiene, eating healthy, exercising, periodic maintenance to your home, tools and machinery, and maintaining good relationships.)
