Mauli Dave: I enjoy playing tennis and basketball

Singer Mauli Dave gives us a lowdown on how she manages to stay fit

By As told to Purnima Goswami Sharma

Fitness - "Fitness means leading an active lifestyle and being healthy. I play tennis and basketball as they are complete cardiovascular activities. Since the past few years I have started running regularly. Running has helped me physically and helps me stay calm, positive and feel extremely healthy. I personally feel it’s the best form of exercise. I prefer running in the open, amidst nature, not in the gym. Dance is also an important part of my life. I started learning Bharatnatyam at the age of six and also learned and pursued a Diploma in Kuchipudi. So, dance has helped me be flexible, supple and graceful.

Diet - I only drink room temperature water as that helps my throat. I drink four glasses of lukewarm water with lemon in the morning. As far as food is concerned I don't believe in extreme diets, but I do believe in eating healthy food; for instance avoiding oily food and sweets. My breakfast is usually eggs and bread. I have rotis, vegetables and dal for lunch. In the evenings, I eat fruits. For dinner I have bhel or roti and vegetables.

Music is my passion. I de stress by listening to music and also by singing. I am also fond of painting, it helps me relax. A good movie does wonders!

I believe in God and pray everyday. I am thankful to God for all that he has blessed me with. I give my best to anything that I pursue.  Only when you work hard in life you get success.
