On the occasion of International Women's Day, Sheela Krishnaswamy shares some personal space with NuFFooDS Spectrum-
My daily routine-
I have no fixed routine when it comes to professional work. As an independent consultant, my schedule varies and sometimes changes at the nth hour.
My idea of nutrition and fitness-
Very important. Whenever I’m not traveling, I’m regular with my exercise routine – it could be a morning walk in the park or lifting weights in the gym or a few yogasanas. Needless to say that eating healthy is a part of my lifestyle!
My favourite cuisine-
I have more than one favourite cuisine – South Indian, Thai, Mediterranean, Mexican.
My favourite holiday spot-
It’s hard to pin point one favourite holiday spot when I have travelled widely across India and the globe. I must say that the diversity in culture and cuisine that India offers is hard to beat. Each state in our country is unique and worth a visit. Outside India, my favourite destination is Europe. I could visit any of European countries any number of times and at any time of the year.
My idea of balance between of professional and personal life-
That’s easy. Time management is the key. Also saying ‘no’ to things beyond my ambit, and prioritising my activities.
My role model-
None. Don’t get me wrong. I admire and respect a lot of people in my professional and personal life. But I believe in carving my own niche rather than treading on another person’s path.
