Megha Rouniyar on her workout routine, eating habits and spiritual quotient…
I am currently working on a 9-5 job. During the weekends I am busy with my modelling assignment and shoots. Even though my work life is very hectic, I try to keep a balance and maintain a healthy lifestyle. My body is like a temple to me and I try to take very good care of my health. I work out four to five times a week. My workout regime is very simple. I am pear-shaped so I focus on cardio and I do a lot of strength training. I’m at the gym usually in the evening after work. I start with 20-25 minutes of cardio followed by what day it is (leg, arms, abs…) I never skip a leg day, and abs day are my favourite. I like to keep it simple. Sometimes when I am lazy, I just simply do some yoga in my living room.
I am a big time foodie and I love to try different cuisines. Usually, I don’t count my calories but I try to eat clean. I love authentic Nepali and Indian food. My diet is very simple: I incorporate a lot of greens and make sure my protein intake is good. Mornings begin with a cup of hot lemon water followed by black coffee; I Need my caffeine to function. I ensure that I include tofu or chicken in my lunch to get my protein. Dinners are usually light. I like to snack on dried fruits and granola bars. I am not a sweet person, so I don’t consume sugar on a daily basis. However, I love treating myself to tres leches once in a while. I do have my cheat days where I treat myself to Biryani.
The only eating tip I would like to give is to listen to your body. Try to eat healthy and clean; don’t be afraid of those carbs. Just keep an eye on the portion size!
Meditation is something that has really helps me to make myself calmer and helps me overcome my stress and anxiety. I also write poetry as a form of self-expression. I consider myself an ambivert. So on days when I find myself stuck with my emotions, I find it easier to express myself on a piece of paper. I don’t stress easily, I practise meditation daily and that has helped me to remain calm. My only mantra in life is ‘Live and let life’. Besides that I firmly believe that practising humility is the essence of living a happy life.
