Keep IT Fit


During the discussion with his business partner, Amay tried to straighten up and shift a little on the swivel chair. This slight adjustment gave him a temporary respite from the stabbing pain that flowed down from his hips to his ankles. It was killing him during the meeting. It felt like he was constantly touching an open electrical wire. The current radiated with increasing intensity the more he changed his leg position. He remembered that fateful day after his 30th birthday when he went to the gym for the first time in his life. The doctor informed him that his muscles were too tight to perform high-intensity weightlifting exercises on the first day.

He was burning with pain as his partner asked a question. This ailment was the only thing on his mind during this business meeting. Even for health reasons, he could not cancel the meeting.

Today he no longer had the agility, the alertness, the same approach or the arguments that he had in his good days.  He couldn't help it, the doctor informed him that it will take 2-3 months for this to heal completely. So he couldn't wait and continued with this agony and suffering.

Do not read this post  further  if you accept Amay’s life

Most of us start a business when we take a step towards 30, and diseases, health problems also knock our body at the same time. The time when you need to focus all your energy on work goes into healing yourself. Blaming your helpless situation is not a solution, but I think ignorance about healthy lifestyle and easy access to unhealthy foods play a big role. 

If you want to take your business to new heights, then adopt a healthy lifestyle and become a -fitness freak.

Only a healthy mind and body can make wise decisions

There are many books in the market, and also dieticians. Check them carefully.

  Some steps that can be helpful for you 

1) Don't blindly believe in free advice of your friends. Check whether they are knowledgeable about it or not.

 2) Choose your dieticians and books carefully, you cannot bear a wrong choice. It takes a lot of time to recover

 3) Adopt only sustainable changes in your diet and lifestyle.

4) Engage in an activity that gives you an adrenaline rush. It can be sports, yoga, running, football, aanythig. It rejuvenates your mind and body.

5) Don't leave your hobby to find more time for your work. Practicing a hobby also relaxes your mind.

 6) Try to learn basic meditation exercises like Anulom-Vilom, Bhastrika. 

7) Don't believe in cheat days. Adopt something that you can do everyday.

Hello, I am a Project Management Professional, and an author and a blogger by passion. I like good sarcasm and humor. Books, people around me, and nature inspire me, and my blogs and book reflect the same.


Let me know what you think

  1. I like the tips particularly no 3 and 7. In our zeal for fitness we sometimes adopt measures that do not last long and the purpose stands defeated.

  2. You have talked about such an important thing, Chetan. Fitness is so important to run a successful business. Yoga and Pranayama are my life-savers everyday. Wonderful post.

  3. This is the most ignored aspect of so called 'work life balance'

  4. @myspace
    That is so true, and we end up becoming heavier than we ever were..Thank you so much

  5. That is true Purba, fitness is the key, Yoga and Pranayam are my life-savers too.. Thanks

  6. Yes Raghav, you are right, we do not understand that we need a fit body to run business
