Savouring sweet moments

Last Updated 18 January 2018, 19:59 IST

I usually get up very early in the morning  everyday because of my shoots. My schedule also has gym classes four times a week. So, definitely my weekend has to start with me lazying in the bed and not stressing about getting up early.

I usually avoid gymming on the weekends and instead, go for a nice, long walk. It is a time for me to breathe in some fresh air as most of my time  is spent travelling in the car. There are times when I don't see the morning sky at all. So I long for fresh air and greenery or just being amidst nature.  

I also make time to catch up with my  mother and my husband  on weekends because we don't usually get time together. Weekends are the only time when we meet each other for a good conversation.
Our meal times are usually very chatty and long during weekends.

I'm quite thankful to my husband for adjusting  to my schedule. We make sure to spend quality time with each other whenever we get time. Our days are usually filled with long chats and getting a glimpse of what's happening in each other's lives.

There is one thing I feel sad about is and that is the influence of television  and technology on us as human beings.

We have forgotten to connect with each other on a one-on-one level or have family dinners without getting distracted by our phones. That is why I insist that we don't watch television or have any kind of digital influence on us when we are together.  

For rejuvenating myself after a long week and prepping up for the week ahead, I also visit a spa  or a parlour for a head massage. It's relaxing and I love that. Saturday evening is the time for me to catch up with my friends.  

Since  I travel 60 to 70 km every day for work, I prefer to stay at home unless it's extremely important. This is the reason why I keep my choice of favourite restaurants near my house. Most of the time, we order food and call our friends over. We then catch up on a good movie. Before I go to bed, I love to read a book and fall asleep.

I am a foodie and have a huge sweet tooth. I love to relish desserts, so one day I just let go and satiate my sweet cravings. By the way, I make very good Banoffee pies.  

I choose one weekend or one holiday of the month to buying dress material. This is because I design all my outfits for my show. All that I wear for my character on 'Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai' are my personal outfits.

Either, I get them made or buy them myself.  I completely adore this process. In fact, I have almost made 300 outfits for myself. The entire process of styling my own character is an enriching and meditative experience.
