Sports like diving can help one to relax
The fact that one can breathe while surrounded by water was initially unnerving but is now exhilarating
NEW DELHI :
A day that involves just a 14-hour surgery is a good day for Savitr Sastri. A regular day at work involves consultations and visits too. Sastri, 38, is a consultant neuro and spine surgeon at Yashoda Hospital, Hyderabad. Doing something active out in the open is very important for him as it helps him to cope with the pressure of his profession. A knee injury that he picked up due to running about five years ago meant that Sastri had to find a low impact outdoor activity. “I have kayaked in open water, and trekked and rock climbed at various points in life. But kayaking gets boring after a while, and trekking and rock climbing are off limits now after my injury," says Sastri, who picked up diving on a whim.
