Yami Gautam tries out different ways to stay fit

The actress Yami Gautam, who got associated with Quaker Oats to talk about the importance of consuming a healthy breakfast through a live Facebook session, is willing to change her physical appearance as long as a project is convincing enough.

“It totally depends. It’s not easy, but I cannot give a subjective answer to this question. But I feel if there is a role that I love and love the team, then I would take it as it comes,” said the model turned actress.

Apart from her work, the “Sanam Re” actress is also known for being fit. She says she makes a “conscious effort to stay fit and feel good”.

“The kind of profession I am in, and the active lifestyle we all lead requires us to be on our toes all the time. Which is why it becomes all the more important to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Keeping fit is not about a good core or a good body, it is a lifestyle choice which reflects every day. It even translates to little things like good skin and hair, amongst others,” Yami said.

What is her fitness regime?

“I do mostly functional training. I do very little weights. As I said, it always is an amalgamation of pure workout and your diet. It doesn’t mean cutting down food. It means including more healthy stuff in your food, that gives you the right nutrition intake.”

Yami feels each individual finds their own way to a healthy lifestyle.

“It’s not always restricted to the gym. I dance, someone does yoga, someone goes cycling. I think any sort of physical activity and right food is very important. I think even right food doesn’t mean it has to be bland and boring.

“Healthy food can be yum too. For instance, as part of Breakfasts of India, I cooked Dakshini Toast with Quaker Oats – a recipe that was healthy, tasty and easy to make. I truly believe you must enjoy what you are eating.

“Keep one day to indulge, I never call it a ‘cheat day’ because I feel you deserve it,” the Yami Gautam said.(IANS)

Vastu Tips to Keep Mind Engaged and for Positive Mood

It is always better to know about things that involve another person’s life; that makes sense. Reading not only informs and expands an individual’s knowledge, it also keeps them distracted and constrictively engaged.

Books can be chosen as per individual preferences. However, vastu experts recommend reading inspiring and motivational books during pregnancy.

Books on happy subjects provide the expectant mothers with the right direction to think in, helps uplifts their mood and keeps them feeling refreshed and happy.

Also, mothers can place pictures of cute babies or healthy children in their rooms to feel positive and hopeful about motherhood.

Vastu Tips for the Brahmasthan

Vedic architecture is based on Vastu Shastra and holds a lot of prominence for proponents.

Brahmasthan is a principal part of the house as per Vedic architecture and community planning. It is the centre or the precise middle of a building a geographical area.

Going by vastu tips for expecting mothers, the brahmasthan should be free from any obstructions. This point inside the house must be free of any sort of furniture, pillar, wall or any other physical fixture. It must also be well lit with overhead lights such as skylights.
