Wholesome health, not just gyms & salads

  • I start my day around 6 am with an hour of cross-fit or multi-fit functional training. This high-intensity workout boosts my energy levels and sets my day up nicely. I then plan my day and have a quick breakfast before officially starting my work day.
  • I prefer an early dinner by around 8 pm followed by a quick workout in the gym or a swim. I generally read a book before dozing off by around 11 pm.
  • I have four meals a day between 9 am and 8 pm, mostly high on proteins and minimal carbs. Having fresh fruit and veggie smoothies in-between meals ensures that I stay hydrated and also get my daily dose of vitamins, minerals and other essentials for the day. Eating right, wholesome food is very important as it positively affects the efficiency of your body and brain through the course of the day.
  • Sports and workouts have been an important part of my daily routine since I was a kid. I still make sure I play some sport or work out twice a day on most days. Over the years I have realised that my work efficiency is proportional to my being physically active.
  • Wholesome health! Mind, body and soul! It is not just about the number of hours you spend in the gym or the salads you eat. It is about maintaining the right balance, eating the right food, getting enough rest, staying physically and mentally active and also having your heart and mind in a good space. Each aspect of our lives contributes to our overall health and it is up to us to make the most of life.

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.

We are trying our best to ensure the newspaper reaches your hands every day. We have also ensured that even if your paper is not delivered, you can access BusinessLine in the e-paper format – just as it appears in print. Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.

But all this comes at a heavy cost. As you are aware, the lockdowns have wiped out almost all our entire revenue stream. Sustaining our quality journalism has become extremely challenging. 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. You can help us enormously simply by subscribing to our digital or e-paper editions. We offer several affordable subscription plans for our website, which includes Portfolio, our investment advisory section that offers rich investment advice from our highly qualified, in-house Research Bureau, the only such team in the Indian newspaper industry.

A little help from you can make a huge difference to the cause of quality journalism!
