Strong is the new sexy… She ‘dead­lifts’ 70 kgs (lifts a 70-kg bar­bell), and does about 30 pushups ev­ery day. Raveena Tan­don has been in the film in­dus­try for more than two decades but is cur­rently look­ing hot­ter and fit­ter than ever be­fore. In ‘Fit & Fa­mous’, the gor­geous ac­tress re­veals how strength em­pow­ers, while dis­ci­pline takes you there… To­gether, they make YOU – your body, your health, your re­la­tion­ships. She’s our new ‘fit­spi­ra­tion’! Dis­ci­pline is in­deed a virtue… This World Can­cer Day, let’s pledge to em­brace dis­ci­plined eat­ing. It is be­com­ingly in­creas­ingly clear that de­fi­cien­cies in cer­tain vi­ta­mins and min­er­als are linked to can­cer risk. ‘Diet Wise’ arms you with the knowl­edge on can­cer-fight­ing foods, help­ing you in­crease your odds of pre­vent­ing can­cer. …Pre­vent­ing risky be­hav­iour among teens is also the need of the hour. Ac­cord­ing to a psy­cho­log­i­cal study, teenagers tend to weigh the ben­e­fits more heav­ily than risks while mak­ing de­ci­sions. Our ‘Par­ent­ing’ col­umn urges you to dis­cuss with your teen ways – drunken driv­ing, al­co­hol, drugs, un­pro­tected sex – by which they could harm them­selves (and oth­ers). But teach­ing your child good de­ci­sion-mak­ing also in­volves rep­ri­mand­ing – one that should be im­posed with love, not anger or frus­tra­tion. Love can ac­com­plish any­thing. It can soothe minds, heal hearts and cre­ate last­ing re­la­tion­ships. Cel­e­brate this sea­son of love with our heart­warm­ing tips on healthy dat­ing, lov­ing ‘n’ bond­ing through our ‘Valen­tine’s Spe­cial’. From en­joy­ing a heart-healthy date to work­outs for bet­ter sex, we’ve got them all. Be a healthy Valen­tine! But don’t for­get to love your­self first. We’ve heard this over and over again from self-help books and ther­a­pists, but self-love is at the very core of our well- be­ing, hap­pi­ness and self-em­pow­er­ment. Lov­ing your­self is giv­ing your­self the ap­proval that you might be seek­ing from oth­ers, mak­ing your needs just as im­por­tant to you as oth­ers’ needs. There is no bet­ter time than now to stop aban­don­ing your­self, and start lov­ing your­self… to be truly, truly happy
