Ankita Konwar, a certified yoga enthusiast who’s often spotted either sharing her everyday fitness routine or serving couple goals with her husband Milind Soman, cleverly calls out male gaze and objectification in her latest note shared on social media.
Listing down 10 other things that people should shift their focus toward instead of “discussing someone else’s bum,” Konwar has hit the bullseye with her empowering mindset. Take a look!
The first point is based on aiming to achieve your desired physique. Urging netizens to work on their fitness, she suggested, “Try squats, they are magical.”
Read a book
The second point focuses on enhancing your knowledge by going back to the book you decided to read: “Read a few pages from a book that you bought and forgot about.”
The third point is to unleash the cook within you: “Learn to cook something new.”
Go for a run, or try yoga
A fitness guru, her fourth and fifth points are about working on your own body by going out for a walk or run. She also suggested giving stretching or yoga a shot as it “helps tremendously!”
Take a nap
Giving a sarcastic remark, her sixth point stated: “Take a nap (since you’ve got the time)”
Short goals go a long way
You may have big plans in your life, but what makes them achievable is when you break them down into shorter goals, be they career or personal ones. “Fix a short-term goal for yourself (physical/mental/emotional),” she wrote.
There are tons to be grateful for in life and that often slips our minds. Konwar suggested, “Write down what you’re grateful for today.”
Find solace in furry friends
Allotting time to dogs or cats is a scientifically proven therapeutic measure. Believing the same, she wrote, “Spend some time with a furry friend.”
Indulge in “ANYTHING”
“Basically do ANYTHING except for talking about someone else’s bum,” she concluded, with a humble yet powerful, “Namaste!”
