In tune with a low-carb diet and exercise

I wake up by 5 am and listen to Hindustani classical music for about half-an-hour. I am at the gym by 6.30 am with my ear phones and I continue to listen to Hindustani classical music. So my exercise is, in fact, poetry in motion. I train four days a week because I believe rest is important.

I am careful about my diet and I avoid negative thoughts because you are a product of your thoughts

I do not smoke or drink. My work keeps me engaged.

I consciously pace my day. Every single day is like a marathon, where you are expected to run 42 kilometres at a stretch, so you need to pace it sensibly.

I end my day late at night. It leaves me with just about enough time to have dinner and go to bed. My diet is low on carbohydrates in the evening. I have regular, elaborate Indian meals. However, I avoid sugar and fried food and make it a point to focus on lean meat and lots of vegetables. At the end of the day, I get about four to five hours of quality sleep.
