Musharaf Faruqui

Successful people often have a lot working against them when it comes to fitness—literally. Despite the obvious benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the one common complaint that always tops the list is TIME.

Prioritizing wellness, as part of a balanced life, is an important quality to exhibit. If you think about exercise this way, none of us is too busy. And we all need to keep moving. Increasingly, leaders are expected to be on top of their game, but the constant demands can wreak havoc with their health and well-being. Increased work pace, longer days, travel, working across different time zones, and the pressure to stay connected 24/7 has the potential to create wear and tear on both individuals and teams. ‘All work and no play’ is not sustainable these days, the new mantra is – ‘Work, go out and play.’
