Physical activity in some form, no matter what
  • 1 If you don’t have good health, nothing else matters. And health for me is not having a perfect figure but absence of disease. So I schedule my week in advance and thus my exercises for the week are also planned instead of my thinking every day — “should I or not today?”
  • 2 Do some form of physical activity every day — no matter what! I try and combine my activity as something I can do with my son, so we also spend quality time together as well.
  • 3 As sitting is the new smoking, I take a stroll every 30 minutes in the office. I love reading, so the urge to go for a walk while listening to an audio book helps achieve two goals at the same time!
  • 4 Keep two simple mantras for eating: consuming uncooked food is better than cooked food. And eating home-made food is better than eating out. I don’t beat myself up for eating out — it’s just that when we are eating out I try and make healthier choices from the menu.
  • 5 I eat my last meal four hours before I sleep and after dinner I try and spend time with family which is a complete joy and great stress-buster!
