BCCL
Raghunandan Saraf says he can't work without his iPhone and Mac laptop.
Raghunandan Saraf, Founder, Saraf Furniture, who is a bibliophile, likes to keep his Kindle close. He claims that technology has made it easy for him to be a bookworm.

Level up:
Working from home is turning to be productive but at the same time it means clocking in more screen time than usual. People are working round the clock which made lead to imbalance in personal and professional life.

Gadget gold:

The two gadgets which are absorbing me would be my iPhone and Mac laptop. To work without these two would be impossible.

Call of duty:
I use the Apple 11 Pro. Tap and the world is in your hand, it has everything you need. The performance of the phone is the scoop to talk about.

Appy days:

From the work front, to track the day goals Shopify and Trello are the apps.

Fitness first:
I own an Apple fitness watch, which keeps me in check with my fitness goal for the day. It has kept me motivated and pushed me towards fitness during the pandemic.

My recommendations:
The Kindle as I am a bibliophile. Technology made it easy to be a bookworm. The Spotify app for their podcasts. Inshorts keeps me updated with the days to day news and I also use Curefit. Their live sessions and offline classes are excellent.

“I decided to use this opportunity to improve my physical conditioning. I started cycling (after more than 40 years) inside my gated community from mid-April. I went from seven kilometres per ride to 20 kilometres by the end of June. Recently, I did a 52-kilometre ride to Chikka Tirupathi [on the outskirts of Bengaluru]. Cycling has had a huge impact, not just on my physical conditioning but also my confidence.”

Vineeta Singh, CEO, SUGAR Cosmetics

“Startups are quite demanding, so I’ve never been able to work out more than three days a week, even when I trained for the Ironman Triathlon. So, when the lockdown was announced, I decided to challenge myself with a ‘consistency goal’ of accomplishing a workout a day. It began with coordinated workouts on Zoom with my friends and as restrictions eased, I started going for outdoor runs. There were days when there would be so many calls that I’d be seen climbing the building stairs at 10 pm. I now have more than 100 days of workouts under my belt and it has been the biggest stressbuster.”

“During the lockdown, I have managed to master single-leg burpees. It’s important to have a defined schedule and stick to it. I ensure that I block out some time during the day for exercise. I work out at home daily with various bodyweight exercises — I do pushups, burpees and air squats. I love doing CrossFit and high-intensity interval training that combines weightlifting, aerobics, powerlifting and gymnastics.”
