Amulya Chava Miss Beverly Hills 2020 on her workout routine, eating habits and spiritual quotient…

Workout Routine

I enjoy cardio so I spend a lot of time working out on the treadmill. In addition to the treadmill, I try to incorporate mountain climbers, planks, crunches, and jumping jacks. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, however, I think a lot of us have struggled to keep up with our exercise routine. This is understandable and we must be kind to ourselves after experiencing a global pandemic. I will admit that I have fallen behind on my exercise routine as well, but I have started to get back on track. In addition to my usual routine, I have also joined a fitness boot camp that incorporates the right amount of strength training with cardio. It feels good to be working out regularly again and to be slowly returning to a normal lifestyle. If there is anything that I have learned from working out during the lockdown, it is that discipline is key!

Eating Habits 

I give a lot of importance to protein intake and try to have some protein with every meal. For breakfast, I have a smoothie with strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, walnuts, and protein powder. For lunch, I like to eat quinoa with lentil dal and an omelette. Finally, for dinner, I either drink soup with a side of egg whites or have chia pudding with a lot of fruit. I also try to drink at least 1 litre of water a day. 

Spiritual Quotient 

In the past, I struggled with a lot of anxiety issues and would feel uneasy most of the time. Since the past year, however, I have focused greatly on my spiritual and mental well-being which has helped me destress, release any feelings of anxiety, and remain calm. I did this primarily through journaling, meditation, and chanting. I like to chant a Shiva mantra with a rudraksha as it increases positive vibrations around me. My life mantra is to only focus on what I can control. Rather than worrying about things that are out of my hands, I try to focus on what is in my control and let go of the rest.
