A Doctor’s Road to Leisure – The New Indian Express

Express press service

HYDERABAD: The life of doctors, especially in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, can stress them without any length. Waking up to the idea of ​​putting their lives on the line every day has become a way of life. Not to mention the lack of real long and well-deserved breaks! All of this has cost many doctors their physical and mental health. From stress, pressure and anxiety to loneliness and exhaustion, they have to deal with more than they can bear.

But, Dr. Krishna Reddy Pingle, Consultant Radiologist at Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills, trained his mind and body and entertained his soul to get him through it all. Sharing how he relaxes after a busy day in hospital, he says: “I’m going out for some fresh air. Just that breath of fresh, green air in the open gives me a feeling of detox. I take my dog ​​Maximus for a good walk every other day. I like to cook too.

You would be wrong to think that the relaxation stops here. Dr. Pingle doesn’t wait for his evenings to “chill out”. “My day starts at 6 a.m. Some days I turn to yoga and the gym to start, and Wednesdays and Sundays are golf time which prepares me for the day ahead,” he shares.

Stretching, weights and meditation help him improve his game. He tells us that lately he has really enjoyed his Pilate classes. “The basic idea is to keep busy. With so much stress and extended working hours, we really need to venture outside. Keeping your mind busy is important,” the doc says.

The busy bee doesn’t hesitate to go out with her friends to discover the latest restaurant in town. “I like to socialize around good food and good wine. I also organize malt tasting evenings. But nothing beats inviting friends over for a movie night at home,” he adds. He hopes to start soon a whiskey malt club, he tells us.

You might soon come across the doctor taking music lessons. “I’ve always wanted to play the piano, it’s so classy. I also want to learn another language. Spanish is on my mind right now,” he says. Well, to that we say, buena suerte!
