Chennai, Perambur Kumar: You can't fool the people all the time. Old wine in a…
Fitness is my lifestyle today. It’s the best ‘me time’ I get and it sets my zone for the day. It means pure concentration for me.
How I keep fit
It is extremely important for women to be as fit as men. A girl’s body starts going through major changes at a very young age — be it hormonal or physical. Being fit is the core of having a healthy life and alienating any sort of ailments in the future.
I keep fit by eating healthy, nutritious yet tasty food and being active all day long. I try and include some sort of physical activity in my schedule every day. Train yourself to listen to your body. I jog and swim, but apart from that, I play badminton or squash as well. Not all of it together (laughs). I try and mix up my workouts.
A study in transformation
When I played a plus-sized girl in my debut film Dum Laga Ke Haisha, my first post was about the fun little things I did to lose weight… and it was called #LoseItLikeBhumi.
Principles of fitness
The three principles of fitness I follow, are – be disciplined, don’t go off your schedule and stick to your diet. Keeping your nutrition levels in check is a very vital part of fitness. Try and work out for at least 45 minutes a day.
Men can celebrate Women’s Day with us by just being gentlemen, being supportive, the best version of them, which I feel boys today are.
Be healthy, be happy
I haven’t run a marathon yet, but I would love to someday. I know about the dna Women’s Half Marathon. It’s a great initiative. Women tend to ignore themselves and their health and prioritise things above their fitness. But this is wrong.
