How to reduce the size of word templates

I have created a word template, it has 4 MB size but this template doesnt contain much data. I want to reduce the size of this template
Sveta has a good answer, but here's a link to the Microsoft Office support page in case you need it later:

Here’s a few things I’d check for: make sure document ‘Style’ is set to ‘Normal’. If you used bulleted list, make sure you create it within word, not pasted it in from a different doc. If you use pictures make sure you import them not paste it in. Also compress the pictures (under the Format Picture menu). Check if you have versions turned on.
