My Daily Routine-
My day starts at 5:30 am. The first thing, I do after waking up, is to thank Almighty to give me another day of my life and to Mother Earth who bears all our burden, providing us everything required for survival. This I got from my father. After freshening, I go for a walk about 2 to 3 km, come back help my daughter in getting ready for the school. Then I start getting ready to come to work.
My idea of fitness and nutrition-
Fitness and Nutrition play a major role in shaping up our lives. For me it is very important to be physically fit and have correct nutrition. Yes I do exercise regularly.
My favourite cuisine-
I like Indian cuisine, especially the food made by my mother.
My favorite holiday destination-
My favourite holiday spot is Niagara Falls in US.
My idea of balance between personal and professional life-
For a working woman there has to be a fine balance between personal and professional lives. In real terms there is not a fixed percentage of the time/efforts devoted in each.
In my case it is based on priorities and requirements.
