Q&A: Dr. Sheela Nambiar, Gynaecologist, Fitness expert/author

Q. With a stressful life becoming the norm, what is your definition of a healthy lifestyle?
A. It’s very hard to give a definition of a healthy lifestyle. I think coping with stress is something which is a given and is not going to go away today or tomorrow. One would have to just cope up with it. It depends upon the choices
we make.
