Head of Department- Healthcare Division, RESET- Holistic Living Concepts, Dr. Deepti Bagree sahres, "For women who travel frequently for work or otherwise it’s important to stay fit and not deviate from fitness regime by sticking to certain general guidelines such as using the wait time at airport for taking steps, walking around, eating meals before leaving home so that one doesn’t eat at food counters, following GPRS mantra (grilled, poached, roasted steamed/stir fry) while ordering food at restaurants."
"Pranayama- Deep breathing, taking up a hobby, a short vacation to distress, friends get to gather are all ways to distress yourself. De-stressing helps in lowering the stress hormones and soothing nerves and relaxing tense muscles. This helps in the absorption of nutrients from the food well," she concluded.
