Good clothes and a great body complement each other, feels Bombay Shirt Company founder, Akshay Narvekar. The 35-year-old entrepreneur is a sports buff and believes that playing a sport is the best way to stay fit.

“A lot of my free time is spent playing either football or basketball. I like other sports as well and find sports and exercise to be stress busting,” Narvekar says. A food lover, he enjoys experimenting with different types of cuisines. “My diet is a bit unconventional compared to most, but I eat in moderation,” he says.

While work keeps him busy, Narvekar ensures that he works equally hard in the gym. “My first boss once told me, ‘When you’re young, you look forward to the weekends. But when you get older, it’s the longer vacations that keep you going’. I hold this thought close to my heart and implement it in my life.”

He shares some tips for the body and mind:

1. Do what works for you
Everyone’s body responds differently. Do what works for you in terms of nutrition, exercise, and general routine.

2. Don’t cut out, eat in moderation
Eat a light breakfast but decent lunch and dinner. Don’t cut out any type of food, just make sure to do it in moderation.

3. Play to de-stress
Sports and exercise are stress busters. Play a sport or two at least a couple of days a week and work out at the gym for another 2-3 days. This is probably that one hour of the day where you can completely tune out from work.

4. Mental fitness is as important as physical fitness
Don’t take weekends off. A couple of months before taking a 10-day travel break. It may be a good option. After all the hard work, a much-deserved vacation is always sweeter.

5. Unwind to start afresh
Post dinner, read a book. It opens your mind to new worlds and ways of thinking. It instils energy and prepares you for a day ahead. It is a great way to soothe your mind and soul.
