Mr. R. Nagaraj
Chairman of Zonasha Estates & Projects
Mr. Nagaraj is a firm believer of Health & success begins with one’s mind.
As the Chairman and Managing Director of Zonasha and as the President of ‘The Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI), Karnataka, Mr. Nagaraj has been instrumental in moulding Bangalore’s real estate infrastructure. Through years of experience and handling numerous projects in Bangalore spanning a range of industries from IT, Commerce and Hospitality to Housing and Residential, he is the go to person for the real estate developer community in Karnataka.
On the question of his personal belief system around health and wellness, here below were his thoughts, in his own words…
There is no going back and turning the clock to the good old days when healthy and carefree living were the order of the day. The normal, easy and non-complicated living afforded one with a natural immunity and ease to lead life without any major health troubles. One would just step out and enjoy nature, climb trees, eat what was locally available. In an adverse situation of any injury on account of the carefree living, one would be comfortable even wiping mud onto the wound and in case of any delay in healing, approach the friendly neighbourhood Doctor who would prescribe medicines or an injection that would set things right in a matter of days.
Today, with the fast-paced, a little stressful-at-times lifestyle that one is subjected to, the best way to live is to have a mix of health-conscious eating, once in a while indulgence without subjecting oneself to guilt, enjoy company of family and friends. Most of all, lead a balanced life with an attitude of live and let live. Too much self-centred approach without a thought to others’ interests is in the long run detrimental to one’s own health.
In fact, some simple home remedies also go a long way in healthy living. He follows a simple regime of a dash of turmeric (curcumin) in a glass of hot water in the morning and some buttermilk with taste-bud friendly coriander leaves to go with simple home-cooked lunch on most regular days.
Mr. Nagaraj cited a number of instances in his personal life when Doctors had written off one’s health condition as being severe and advising a compromised lifestyle and yet with one’s conviction and self-belief system one has lead an extremely good quality of life.
There are two more important points that Mr. Nagaraj would say are his personal beliefs:
1. Your mind & attitude towards health and life in general has a major role to play in the quality of your life and the overall health that you enjoy. Overt consciousness to every small thing with regards to health in the long run, is not the way forward. It has to be a balanced, yet tilting towards a carefree approach with a strong belief that NOTHING CAN GO WRONG WITH ME attitude will help one lead a successful and enjoyable life.
2. Never take up any regime or strenuous exercise routine to impress others or to redeem ones self-confidence. Any exercise routine that one takes up should be strictly with a self-awareness of ones limitations. Most of all, it has to be something that one really enjoys doing. Never take up something that could in the long-run lead to injury and a more serious health condition that could have simply been avoided.
