The daily routine of 17 CEOs

Jim Citrin at Yahoo! Finance set out to study the daily routine of 20 CEOs. Surprisingly, he received responses to his survey from 17 of the 20 CEOs polled. Jim’s questions were focused around their daily routines. There was overwhelming similarity between the daily routines of all the CEOs. The following are the most interesting to me:

Start early

This is the part of your morning routine over which you have the greatest control. To fit it all in, it’s a must to start early. The latest any of the surveyed executives wake up is 6 a.m., and almost 80 percent wake up at 5:30 or earlier.

The early-bird-gets-the-worm award goes to Padmasree Warrior, chief technology officer for Motorola, who rises at 4:30 a.m., spends an hour on email, reads most of the news online, and then does an hour of either cardio or resistance training each morning. This allows her to get her son ready for school and drop him off, and still get to work by 8 or 8:30 in the morning.

Exercise every morning.

It’s often difficult to find a way to fit exercise into your busy schedule, but knowing that some of the most successful businesspeople do so might motivate you to find a way to work it into your routine.

More than 70 percent of the business leaders in my survey perform their exercise in the morning, while 15 percent find a way to do it during the day (one does it late at night before turning in). Only two of the executives admit to not exercising on a regular basis, although one said, “I know I should.”

The individual who demonstrates the greatest exercise discipline is the CEO of a high-performing global technology company (I promised him anonymity so as not to blow his cover). “I exercise at lunchtime,” he says. “I block the time every single day. This is because I’m a runner and that’s the best time to run outside all year long.”

Make family time.
Many business leaders find that the morning encourages important family time. Some have breakfast with their families or make taking kids to school a central part of the morning routine.

Clayton, Dubilier & Rice managing partner Kevin Conway lingers at home when he can to help send off all three kids to school. Greg Maffei, CEO of Liberty Media Corporation, says, “I try to talk one of my kids into going outside to get the paper, but end up getting it myself. I then have breakfast with my wife and kids, help the latter get dressed, and drive the older boys to the bus stop at 7:40 a.m.”

Benefits of Turmeric for a Flawless Skin

Turmeric or 'haldi', is one of India’s most widely used spices. Not only it is used to add colour and taste to our food but also as a cosmetic. It has also become a part of our rituals. One of the most important ceremonies of Indian weddings is the 'haldi' ceremony where a paste made of turmeric is applied to the bride and the groom’s body as part of their marriage preparations.

Turmeric has been used as beauty product over the centuries. Here are some properties of turmeric that you can use to cure seven common problems and get a flawless skin.  

Signs of Ageing

Turmeric is an excellent exfoliating agent and can help you defeat the signs of ageing. Take besan(gram flour) and turmeric powder in equal proportions and prepare a paste by adding water. You may alternately prepare this paste in raw milk or even yoghurt. Apply it evenly on your body and leave it till it dries off. Wash it off with lukewarm water and scrub your face gently in circular motion. 

  • You can use turmeric in combination with other ingredients to manage your wrinkle woes.
  • Add raw milk and tomato juice to rice powder and turmeric powder. Apply the paste and let it stay until it dries. Lactic acid present in milk will help peel off the dead skin cells.
  • You can add turmeric powder in buttermilk and sugarcane juice. This will work the best for dark circles and wrinkles.
  • Turmeric-honey paste can be applied on the face and neck to help exfoliate skin and keep a check on pores. 

  • Not only does turmeric take care of the scars and inflammation but also reduce oil secretion by sebaceous glands.
  • To prepare turmeric scrub, add a few drops of water and lemon juice to turmeric powder. Apply the paste on the acne affected area and leave it for about 15 minutes. Gently scrub it off your face with plain water.
  • You can also use turmeric and sandalwood mixture as an acne face pack and wash it off in approximately 10 minutes.
  • For acne scars, dab a mixture of turmeric and plain water and leave it on the marks for 15 minutes.

  •   To control oil secretion, prepare a paste of sandalwood powder and ground turmeric with orange juice. Leave the paste on your face for 10 minutes and rinse it with lukewarm water. 
        Stretch marks 
    ·         Mixture of besan (gram flour) and turmeric in yoghurt/raw milk/water can help women lighten the stretch marks. 
           Facial hair
    ·         Chickpea flour (sattu) or gram flour added to kasturi turmeric can be used as a facial scrub to inhibit hair growth. Be sure to apply this paste for about a month to notice results. Home remedies usually show results over a period of time upon consistent use. 
             Cracked heels
    ·         Apply a mixture of coconut oil/castor oil and turmeric powder on cracked heels preferably 15 minutes before you head to take a bath.
·         In case you accidently burn your skin you can turn to turmeric for quick relief owing to its antiseptic properties. Prepare a mixture of turmeric and aloe vera gel. Apply it on the burn and notice how it heals the wound in no time. 
  • While cooking, sometimes we get burns, the best quick action would to apply a mix of turmeric powder and musturd oil,which are easily available at the kitchen itself. It cannot stop the burning effect but will not let a boil turning into black spot. Its an amazing tip,
Other Tips
  • Turmeric powder with milk is good for health because it helps to remove couph and cold. 

  • Haldi added to milk reduces the side effects of antibiotics consumption and also soothes sour throat. 

  • Use turmeric for cancer treatment. 5 grams turmeric powder mix with lttle water and swallow empty stomach.after 1 hour take water. don' dilute with full water.evening and morning adviseable.
