1 An early riser, I start my day at 3.30 am. After clearing official mails, I begin my regular workout.

2 Fitness is a lifestyle choice and has been my way of life for close to 40 years. I find it natural and comfortable to work out in a gym or go for a run. Fitness is essential to stay alert and agile.

3 I travel extensively but ensure I make time for my workout. I incorporate 40–50 km of running every week, spread over 4-5 days. I also do three days of strength training, three days of yoga and a day of swimming. I gym at home or wherever I stay. When I run, it’s the road in overseas locations.

4 I have five small meals through the day, including vegetables and fluids. I carry a “smart snack box” for between meal cravings. As a vegetarian, my box consists of nuts and dried fruits (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, raisins). I eat a fruit whenever possible. Sugar is avoided in all forms.

5 Exercise is not only important but vital. It helps you get more out of time at work and improves your efficiency and productivity. I believe, if I am unable to take care of my fitness, I will not be able to take care of the health of my organisation.
