With in laws presence around , there seems to be a lot more structure around the day to day routine stuff. i feel like things are getting done on time and i have spare time in my hands . MIL definitely prepares fresh food everyday . I find these better because at my place since my mother was sick for close to 17 years , it adversely affected everything at home and i didnt see any better . And both ILs are persistent and follow something they want to do to the T and dont give up. they have a consistent routine in terms of diet and exercise and general well being of themselves.
