Debina Bonnerji feels healthy habits should form part of our daily lives

Popular for her role as Sita in the 2008 Television series Ramayan, Debina Bonnerji believes in incorporating at least one healthy habit in her routine. “Staying fit is not just about working out,” says Debina who places confidence in gymming on a daily basis adding that everybody should at least make one healthy habit, be it exercise or a sport, or an eatable, part of her/his life. The actorshows extreme enthusiasm when it comes to staying fit. Even with her frenzied schedule of day long shoot, she manages to workout even on a ‘lazy day’. She underscores the fact that gymming does not merely mean working out. For her fitness is 70 per cent diet and 30 per cent working out.

Excited about her role as Mayuri Narayan in the ongoing comedy show Chidiya Ghar aired on SAB TV, she says, “Just like my character, I love dancing. Mayuri can dance at the drop of a hat.” The dancing required in the serial, the actor reveals, is another addition to her fitness regime.

Affirmative about yoga, she says that it helps one to “heal up, stay fit and sharpen concentration levels”. Running too is an integral part of her regimen. All these things in addition to a balanced diet is what works for Debina. “One should not give up so much on food that it gets difficult to get back to normal,” she explains.
