Discussing the importance of being healthy and fit, actress Sonali Bendre, appointed brand ambassador for a health supplement, feels women invariably neglect themselves, owing to house hold responsibilities.

“I feel that instead of just running after my kid to feed him during meal times, or fussing around looking after other family members, I need to take care of myself too,” she says.

 

Elaborating on this, she argues, “I must tell you, that if we do not take care of ourselves — eating right at the right time — we will be irritable with our near and dear ones.”

What about others at home who may accuse you of being selfish in that case “Such a situation does not exist in my house,” Sonali smiles, “As my mum-in-law, too, takes proper care of her own health as only then can she keep the family going. Having said that, it is true that some women may encounter such problems. In that case, I would suggest that it’s upto the woman to make the in-laws understand the importance of womens’ health and fitness in a household,” she points out, stating that only if we are fit and fine, can we take proper care of other family members.

 

Not just for women, but Sonali advises the same for young girls as well. “Girls must pay attention to their health. They go through hormonal changes, and at that age their health is of utmost importance. If we do not pay heed to our health — the repercussions’ will be noticed at a later stage,” she says.

According to Sonali, health and fitness education should be introduced to girls in school. This will help them understand the importance of good health and not just dressing elegantly or simply staying slim. I do a lot to take care of my health. My metabolism is such that I look slim,” she affirms.

Sonali is also proud that her own son is conscious of his health too. “We follow this mantra — eat healthy, be healthy for a healthy mind and body. He understands all of it.”
