There’s Beauty In Everything

Ritu BATRA responds to ThinkWellness360 questionnaire:

Your view on beauty?

I believe beauty is in everything that is around us and everything we do. It is not ‘thin’ or ‘fat,’ not black or white, not any particular shape, size or hue. In fact, it is inclusive too. The beauty that really matters resides in our inner self. This is the one we should be focusing on all our lives.

Your ‘take’ on fitness?

The notion, or idea, of fitness is somewhere, but always associated with weight. However, I believe weight loss, or weight gain, is relative, it’s no bonus. What essentially matters is our well-being at our physical and mental levels, juxtaposed by a healthy and active lifestyle. Well, as a society, we should place more emphasis on being fit and be less ‘fixated’ about weight.

Your view of health and wellness?

I think the limiting factor we have in our ‘control’ is how to be fit and maintain our wellness in the best way possible. No point in risking our health and wellness in spite of knowing that certain habits, or decisions, aren’t good for us, or messing it up by choosing a lifestyle that is harmful. We need to empower ourselves and make the right, also healthy, conscious choices.

Your ‘take’ on work-life balance?

I believe the approach to maintaining work-life balance is in the theory of giving equal hours. This may not play out well in our daily lives. It’s more about prioritising tasks in tune with their importance. The significance of a particular task has to be solely the decision of the person concerned — they should not be influenced by society, or the community’s, viewpoint.

Your mantra to beat stress?

For me, the best way to dealing with stress is talking about the ‘circumstance,’ or trigger, causing it with family members. Sometimes, it helps in finding the solution and at times it doesn’t. However, a discussion definitely helps in easing the emotions that comes with stress. Also, I feel, we tend to, at times, put unnecessary pressure on ourselves. This is life and life is meant to be filled with ups and downs. The most important thing is — taking care of oneself and ‘letting-go, or allowing situations to taking their own natural course. Things will always fall into place once the dust settles down.
