Coffee Every Day

Kapoor jokes that she doesn't know what a day without coffee feels like. "The overall evidence has been pretty convincing that coffee has been more healthful than harmful in terms of health outcomes," says Frank Hu, chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. "For most people, moderate coffee consumption can be incorporated into a healthy diet."


"Weights Before Dates"

Kapoor's fitness mantra is "weights before dates". "Such exercises also improve glucose metabolism, enhance maintenance of healthy body weight, and help improve cardiovascular risk factors such as blood pressure," says I-Min Lee, professor of epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. "All these factors lead to lower risks of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes, which lowers mortality risk."


Belly Dancing

Kapoor enjoys belly dancing lessons with instructor Sanjana Muthreja. "Belly dancing is really a full body workout," Muthreja tells Vogue India. "It involves a lot of core work and engages your hips. It not only helps as a cardiovascular workout (you can lose up to a 1000 calories in one Tahitian class due to the constant explosive movements), but it also strengthens the core muscles, which helps to stabilize the spine."


Avocado Toast For Breakfast

Kapoor loves delicious avocado toast for a typical breakfast. "Avocados are high in fat with 60 percent of this being monounsaturated fats, which research suggests helps to protect against heart disease and lower blood pressure," says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. "They are also an excellent source of potassium, folate and fiber, all of which benefit the heart and cardiovascular system."


Skincare Routine

Kapoor's skincare routine is focused on hydration. "In winters, it's more or less the same, though I use lesser quantity of serums, as sometimes, it can dry out my skin a little," she says. "I use more moisturizer and apply lip balm throughout the day and at night. In terms of fashion, for me, a chic bag always plays the most important role in leveling up any outfit. My current favorite range of bags is from Miraggio, who I've associated with. It has young, fun, and quirky designs, and is suitable for any occasion."
