Pavleen Gujral on her workout routine, eating habits and spiritual quotient…
My workout routine keeps alternating depending on the physical activity I engage in during that period of time. I prefer doing different forms of exercises in order not to let the boredom seep in. These days, I am doing a lot kickboxing and strength training. I also try to squeeze in some stretching and breathing exercises. Apart from that, I lead a very active life in New Delhi, India, managing my child and the house—I don’t have a minute’s rest. That keeps me active, healthy and on my toes.
I start my day with half a bottle of water: it’s a Japanese therapy where they say at night your mouth creates saliva that is self-healing and can cure any disease that your body incurs, so you should drink it in. That’s what I do. Food wise I am not so fussy. I eat anything and everything under the sun, but in moderation. I love making my own breakfast and that’s the one meal I always look forward. I also try and carry some healthy snacks like almonds and makhanas (fox nuts) apart from my own hot water bottle and tea bags whenever I am on the set. I love to make my own tea.
I do believe in God. I believe in the Guru Granth Sahib but I am not blindly religious. I believe in a superpower and the power of meditation but in my hectic lifestyle when I am in Delhi, meditation is hard to find time for. However, whenever I am on a shoot, I try and do at least five minutes of meditation, chanting Om!
