45 seconds each side. If you can do 45 seconds easily; place your feet on a bench or bosu ball and do 45 seconds this way.
She Cooks Healthy Versions of Home Favorites
"I am completely opposite to my on screen character Payal, who loves eating out," she said, according to the Times of India, referencing her character on the TV series Aye Mere Humsafar. "In fact, I love home cooked food. And apart from eating healthy food, I also love cooking for others. So these days I am treating my co-actors on the sets with some yummy dishes cooked by me. Although it took me a lot of time, I made burgers, sweets and even cakes for them, but all in a healthy way! In fact, my friends on the sets have even given me the title of 'Designated Chef'," she said, adding, "I am a lot into healthy living and follow a healthy lifestyle. While I enjoy eating out, at times, we aren't aware of the oil being used, or how the ingredients are sourced. So whatever food item I like, I try a healthy version of it at home."
She Likes to Jog
"In a review study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, experts found running about six miles a week — or 52 minutes — may add from three to six years to your life," reports the Mayo Clinic. "Dr. Edward Laskowski, co-director of the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, says the study supports the existing body of scientific literature that shows exercise is good for your health." He says, "The great news is that you don't have to run a marathon to benefit from exercise. Just getting out there and moving more helps. Exercise benefits many things including your cardiovascular system, and it cuts the risk of some cancers." "Dr. Laskowski adds that even simple activities such as taking a few five-minute walk breaks at work, or walking while talking on the phone, are effective ways to build activity into your life."
Here's How She Keeps Her Skin Clear
"I get a lot of questions asking about my skin care routine," she has said. "I wasn't always blessed with good skin ! It's a lot of hard work !" She says she drinks Neem juice every day. ("I kinda like it now"), hydrates and usines natural skin cleanser without chemicals. Neem underscores "the significance of herbal plants for protecting, treating and minimizing skin infections through the utility of herbal pharmaceuticals like creams, decocted extracts, poultice, paste and lotions that aid in the treatment of skin infections and diseases at a relatively lower cost with lesser side effects as compared to modern and allopathic medicines," according to one new study.
She Does Yoga
You can do yoga without even leaving the house. "Get online and research different styles before you start your home practice to discover how they can help your body. Once you have a better understanding, you can check out virtual classes offered by studios or community groups in your area, apps or YouTube videos," says the Cleveland Clinic. "Start off with sessions that were developed for beginners. And don't be afraid to try videos from different instructors. This will allow you to experience a variety of teaching styles and find one, or a few, that appeal to you."
