startrack Kavita Kaushik believe in mental as well as physical fitness
Recovering from dengue while maintaining a hectic schedule of two tele-shows, Kavita believes that life should not be a race.
“The best way to let your body heal is to treat it like a temple. And the most effective way to do it is by not following an erratic schedule,” says Kavita. “I do not shoot at night. I work religiously from ten to nine, come home, read a little, spend time with family and get eight hours of sleep,” she says. She prefers to be an early bird; nightclubs and late night partying are not her thing.
For her, food is one of the important aspects that makes or breaks one’s health and she hardly favours fast-food. “I carry everything from home. I’m lucky that I have a wonderful cook,” she adds.
However, she is quick to point out that the only person to credit for her lean and tall structure is her father. “It is all in the genes for me,” says Kavita.
Kavita assigns a lot of credit to yoga. The work schedules being tight almost always, she keeps it simple. “I see my friends hitting the gym or going out for Pilates class. But I have no time. Whenever I feel down or just to keep myself in shape, its good old yoga for me,” she says.
Mental fitness also rates high on Kavita’s list. “I keep work and personal life apart. The stress of work should not be carried home. It makes you age faster and your face loses its natural glow,” says Kavita.
