He was diligent in political affairs and physical labour.
When he was young he led his army fighting against the enemy during wars. He gradually formed a good habit of practicing martial arts, horseback riding and archery. He liked reading and writing. This kind of physical and mental exercises actually improved his health.
He led a simple and regular life. Every day he only had one simple meal without any wine.
