With the onset of a pandemic, remaining fit is becoming a tad harder than usual. Here’s to getting inspiration from your favorite stars on how to keep the rhythm going and maintain a wholesome lifestyle.
What is your philosophy on health and fitness?
I believe in maintaining the right balance and not stressing too much about what I’m eating or doing. Regular exercise and ensuring a balanced diet help with staying healthy and fit in the long run.
How do you keep your workout interesting at home during pandemic?
I have been doing “quarantine bootcamp” with “the body lab” We do a different workout everyday which keeps me interested. I walk for an hour when not exercising.
Would you call yourself a health freak-elaborate?
No, I wouldn’t call myself a health-freak. I do what I can and what works for me.
Any fad diets that worked for you?
I don’t think I’ve followed any particular diet. Like I said, I maintain a balanced diet of healthy food and sometimes eat junk food as well
Eating Healthy or Working Out? What works better for you?
A combination of working out and eating healthy works well
Your wellness routine before going to bed?
I put my phone away, pray, and sleep
The first thing you aim to do right after waking up?
I pray, exercise, shower then eat.

I don’t think I know the answer for this one. Our society, media, and social media plays a big part in promoting superficial standards of beauty. For me personally, I focus on myself and embrace who I am. Comparing yourself to others is not useful or helpful. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.

I try to mediate when I can but it’s one thing that I get lazy about so I need to start doing it more regularly because it helps with one’s mental health
I try to keep my cooking simple and easy. My favorite meal I make is a baked chicken recipe: It has less oil and lots of veggies. All you have to do is put the marinated chicken in the oven with potatoes and your favorite veggies with a little bit of olive oil and tadaaaa. It’s ready. I’m getting hungry already.
