“Sunday is now designated as no phone day. 36 hours without any gadgets is refreshing! And stress-free. Stress is known to weaken the immune system, so try to stay away from things that stress you out unnecessarily,” he said.

Experts have often mentioned how stress and gadgets go hand in hand. They also suggest one should try and keep gadgets away one hour before bedtime to aid in sleep and keep fit.

Soman, whose fitness philosophy revolves around making use of nearby surroundings and things to keep fit, also used a watermelon to do some simple weight exercises.

If you don’t have weights at home, you can make use of simple things like heavy fruits or buckets to workout at home.

In an earlier interview to, certified fitness expert Sameeran Chetia said, “Adding weights always helps as it increases the resistance and intensity of the workout. Instead of a bucket, people can also use a school bag as one can wear it and do the workout. However, one needs to make sure that they maintain a good posture otherwise it might lead to injury.”
