Neha Dhupia, well-known actress and fitness icon, addresses thesession 'Celebrating Life and the Spirit of Being Healthy' on the day two of the MindRush 2013 event.
Dhupia asks an audience member what she does first thing in the morning. Reply: "I say my prayers and then I take my dog for a walk", and the actor is thrilled with the reply.
"It's okay to give yourself one cheat day, but you really have to resist the temptation to make excuses to not work out, or to binge, or to eat poorly."
Dhupia's tips for our executives: Have "walking meetings". She adds that though it's okay to work out any time of the day, early morning is the best time. "It's a good idea to kick-start your metabolism by eating something."
Dhupia seems happy to see that quite a few audience members are active and aware about fitness. "You don't exercise to look beautiful. You look beautiful because you exercise."
Dhupia asks the audience members - "How do you fight stress? Get a beer?" An audience member responds with Pranayam, and the actor looks very happy with the reply.
