Between fruits, nuts and an organised schedule, no detox needed

1. Being something of an early bird, I enjoy starting my day by 6:30 am. Armed with my ever-needed cup of coffee, I set out to grab a quick and light snack, which includes a handful of nuts or fruit. This gives me the energy to practise my daily exercise routine, giving me the energy to complete all my goals efficiently. I then have a hearty breakfast, which includes choice of eggs, veggies or oats with fruits. I truly believe it is the most important meal of the day and gives me the strength to power through all my tasks for the day.

2. I am a huge advocate of having a healthy, balanced and nutritious meal. I make it a point to include all major food groups in every meal and put my trust in fruits like apple, banana, orange and various vegetables for their vitamin, mineral and fibre value. I try and consume at least 7-9 portions of fruit and vegetables per day. Proteins form an important part of my diet plans, eggs with the yolk and yoghurt are always included in every meal. I also keep away from snacking on empty calories, as that is highly detrimental to one’s health. Instead, whenever I’m feeling hungry during the day, I snack on a good number of nuts, rather than opting for carb-loaded snacks.

3. I believe stress comes from an unorganised schedule. If one is aware of every task they need to carry out throughout the day, it is easy to schedule it with proper time lines. As this is a practice I usually follow — keeping control over life and work — stress very rarely features in my life. Every aspect is meticulously planned out in my life, which gives me the ability to keep chaotic factors firmly at bay.

4. I’ve never found work to be stressful, so I don’t usually find the need to leave it behind and escape into a detox zone. I believe that one only needs holidays when they want to run away from work. But for me, I love my work, so till date, I’ve never found the need to escape from it. In my life, every day is a holiday as I truly enjoy what I do. I am currently trying to improve my cooking skills.

5. As my days are filled with good work and objectives, I unwind in a fairly easy process. I do a deep breathing session every day before going to bed. This helps in relaxing my body and mind to slip into a good, restful and satisfying sleep.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.

That we have managed so far is thanks to your support. I thank all our subscribers – print and digital – for your support.

I appeal to all or readers to help us navigate these challenging times and help sustain one of the truly independent and credible voices in the world of Indian journalism. Doing so is easy.
