Do you want to run faster?

If you want to run faster or longer, you first got to learn how to run easy!

And that’s what an easy run is all about.

To run easy & relaxed, just putting in an easy effort.

Easy run, also known as a recovery run, is to train yourself to give an easy effort for those 20-30 minutes & just relax and have fun, maybe recover from a hard workout or a hard day at work or simply to clear your head.

It helps to build endurance while still running stress-free, feel-good & motivated to come back to the starting line again.

Better, stronger & more resilient than when you left.

It’s about running & it’s also not about running.

It applies to our work, relationships & life.

My most important takeaway from an easy run is that-

Just like not all runs are meant to be tuff,

Not all days are meant to be tuff.

Sometimes all you need is to just give in an easy effort & enjoy the ride.

And leave with a big smile & a happy heart looking forward to coming back again!🏃‍♂️💪✨

Have a great weekend 🙂

Yoga is love <3

Yoga is a beautiful practice of marrying your breath to your body & create a symphony of soulful movements.

Through the yoga asanas (postures) & vinyasas (transitions) movement, I create a connection between my mind, heart & centre.

Personally, it has helped me find the space & flexibility within me, that I didn’t know existed.

Practising Yoga in the innocent hours of the day makes me become one with my mind, body & soul and set an intention for the rest of my day.

Most importantly, Yoga helps me find the gentleness, kindness and care for myself as I transition from one asana to another and carry it with me into my day for myself & others.

Leaving you with the thought of my most favourite Yoga asana:

As I join my hands, place them in front of my heart & bow my head to create a gentle curve at the back of my neck with my nose touching my thumb, I give thanks to the highest that’s in me & others.


“If there are threats to humanity, Yoga often gives us a way of holistic health.

Yoga also gives us a happier way of life.

I’m sure, Yoga will continue to play its preventive as well as promotive role in the healthcare of masses.”
– Narendra Modi, Honourable Prime Minister of India

Running is my therapy!

Running is not just a part of my workout, it’s my therapy.

No matter in what mood I’m before starting it, it always leaves me feeling great!

In fact, many days that’s my only motivation to start a run.

And most importantly, no matter when or where I take up the starting line, it always welcomes me with the same warmth🥰

Just got in a lovely Friday morning run & all set to take on the day.

So, what in your life makes you feel how running makes me feel?

Know it, do it, keep coming back to it💪✨

Have a great day!

Things to know before you start your first run!

“Are there any specifics of running that one should know before starting?” someone asked.

Few things that I feel make it a slow & steady take-off:

– Really good, comfortable running shoes. Currently, I have Nike Air, they’re very cushioned and great for running. Shoes play a huge role in cushioning the pressure on keens & feet.

– Comfortable workout clothes, the body sweats so the cloth need to support and help you stay relaxed and comfortable.

Now about the process:

– I prefer early morning runs, you prefer the timing that suits best you and in which you feel your best.

– Make sure you don’t eat anything 2 hours before running, have an empty stomach in every way and possibly your body is well-rested.

– As you start, put your toe first then the whole foot. Spreads the pressure evenly, otherwise, if whole feet is put at ones then a lot of pressure goes in the brain.

– The most imp thing, start your run easy, very very easy. You need to be in control of your breath although. So no pressure, nothing. Run relaxed.

And I guess that’s it, you’ll do great

Download the NRC app, they provide guided runs Start with them, day 1, day 2 n so on.

And send me an invite over there, we’ll be connected there too!

Can’t wait to see your first running post!!!❤

Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram. See you!

How did I start my running journey?

3 years back, I was at my all-time low, in terms of health, career, money & relationships. It was also when I started my running journey.

After going through a series of turbulent events in the second half of 2018, of course the painfully lonely, empty years before that were a perfect invite for this unavoidable storm…I decided to change cities and my friends helped me to make that move.

I shifted to Noida with 2 other of my friends’ whom I met on an FB flat & flatmates group. I was lucky to have gotten such lovely flatmates, both of them but particularly lucky to have met Chetna.

She’s such an inspiration esp when you talk about health & fitness. I saw Chetna going for runs every day and doing yoga and I felt so inspired by her dedication towards her health that I started it too.

Of course, in the beginning, it was tuff..very very tuff to even run for 5 mins that too at a tortoise speed🙈 but as time went by and I understood how to stay in control of my breath, maintain a rhythm and enjoy my runs, running started becoming less of an effort as I’d started enjoying it more & of course, had started to get better at this amazing sport.

Running helped me in so many ways tbh. Some obvious like improving my stamina, my willpower, my health, helping in weight reduction, I can keep adding to that list but the thing that running helped me the most with was giving me the confidence…that I needed the most at that time.

The confidence of knowing that if I put in the work, even I can be good at something.

And I’ll be forever grateful to Chetna for introducing this great sport to me and to running itself for giving me that hope that even when I was hopeless and facing my darkest time, that there was still light on the other side…if only you don’t give up and keep reaching out❤
