TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIT­NESS REGIME. Dur­ing the week­days it is def­i­nitely home yoga. I do an hour of yoga early in the morn­ing – sim­ple stretches and breath­ing ex­er­cises fol­lowed by med­i­ta­tion. In the evening, I go to the gym: brisk walk on the tread­mill for an hour fol­lowed by 20 min­utes in the sauna. Af­ter that I soak in the bath tub for 20 min­utes in ei­ther Ep­som salt or laven­der oil. Dur­ing the week­ends, I go for walks in the jun­gle to im­merse my­self in na­ture. The Ja­panese call this shin­rin yoku or for­est bath where we al­low na­ture to help us dis­charge the neg­a­tiv­i­ties in our body. I also do earth­ing by walk­ing bare­foot on the grass or on the beach. It is very ther­a­peu­tic. WHAT IN­SPIRES YOU TO KEEP GO­ING EV­ERY SIN­GLE DAY? My pas­sion for life. There was one point in my life when I suf­fered from de­pres­sion and wanted to give up on every­thing. Once I re­cov­ered I told my­self that I have been given a sec­ond chance in life. From that day on­wards, I pur­sue my pas­sions and live life to the fullest. Carpe diem!
