Cycling, the mantra for healthy living

Over the years, a drastic change has entered our lifestyle and odd working hours have further affected it. Earlier, a nine-to-five job meant that one could easily devote his mornings or evenings to health. But with the long hours and nightshifts creeping in, very few have the privilege to follow a morning or evening schedule. But when the question is not only about living life, but a healthy life, one has to take out time from one's busy schedule for workout. Also, if one is determined and passionate to have a healthy body, the workout is not limited to morning or evenings. One can enjoy it 24*7 and that too without pumping iron in the gym or travelling distances to attend aerobic classes. Cycling, walking, skipping, or any other activity: wherever, wherever it suits you, sweat it out. Hindustan Times brings you a fornightly series on the fitness regimen of people, who comes from varied professions and have different working hours.
