मनुस्मृति - नित्य धर्म

नाक्षैः क्रीडेत् कदाचित्तु स्वयं नोपानहौ हरेत् ।
शयनस्थो न भुंजीतेन न पाणिस्थं न चासने ॥

- मनुस्मृति

One must never play at the wheels (roulette). One must never hold his own foot wear in his hands - always wear it. Do not eat while on the bed. Do not eat holding the plate in one hand. Do not eat while sitting on a chair. Most of these may not be relevant to the way we live now. But, it only goes to show how Manu Smriti detailed out the way to live in that age.
