Back To Life

December 28, 2009 4 comments

Yes, I am back to life. Before starting job in IT company, I was fit and leading very healthy life. After that my lifestyle changed. My daily schedule included coming to office by bike and sit in the office for more than 9hrs
and going back to room, have dinner and sleep. This schedule depressed my physical activities very much but not my food intake. consequently, I started accumulating fat. I never realized that the fat I was gaining was slowly affecting my thinking and attitude. My attitude towards my relationships, life, and future prospects started getting dull. Consequently my work performance started dipping. I never felt fresh and enthusiastic in daily activities even after taking full rest.

Once I got one chain mail having words of Infosys chief Narayan Murthi addressed to the IT techies. He said “life is not just the office and work. Life means a lot. Manage your time so that no need to sit extra time in office. After office explore some new activities. This will make u fresh.”

Getting inspired with this, I thought why not start fighting with my fat. I joined a gym and started spending at least 1 hr everyday there. The initial days were very difficult and full of tiredness. But slowly I started getting my energy and exuberance back in daily routine. My work performance got better with positive attitude towards life. I lost around 4Kg weight within 1 month. I can’t express how good it feels to stand in front of the mirror and see myself coming in shape again. I would like to list some of the improvements in daily routine:

1- Now I don’t feel like sleeping 15 min more in morning and open eyes with full freshness (be at office on time).
2- Now I don’t suffer the sleepless (or less sleep) nights and have sound sleep because of being tired physically.
3- Less yawning in office and meetings (my biggest achievement).
4- Better utilized my free time (rather than just watching TV).

5- Started using my older favourite jeans (another achievement).
6- No time to think negative (empty mind is devil’s home).
7- Wrap up my work within office time (improves my time management).

Now I am planning to join swimming classes on weekends. I found my life back with this idea, you never know which one brings yours back. So keep exploring your hobbies. This really works.
