Medha Khosla, Creative Director, Anomaly : "It's a constant challenge, but making to-do lists helps me stay organised and find the much needed time for myself. Also, one can't possibly do everything themselves, so I believe in delegating tasks, which not only helps in getting work done faster but also gives everyone time to themselves."

Neha Singh, Co-Founder, Cord: "It might sound weird but long drives to work is the best 'me time' I get in a day! I read, listen to music, watch videos, or sometimes just gaze outside the window and appreciate life! Being in a city like Delhi, getting stuck in traffic is a routine and I use that time effectively for myself."

Mitali Wadhwa, Co-Founder, The Pink Post Inc: "After every event, I try and take a holiday...could be a short weekend getaway for a long vacay depending on how much time we have. I helps me keep my sanity!"

Sharnamli Mehra Adhar, Co-Founder The Pink Post Inc.: "Taking care of yourself is as important as working hard for a successful girl boss! And nothing relaxes me better than retail therapy. Am also a spa-o-holic and try and go for it whenever I can for instant rejuvenation after a hectic show or gruelling work days."

Archana Jain, Founder, PR Pundit: "No matter how good you are at your job, it's important to pursue another passion or some sort of interest outside of work. Otherwise, you'll become dull. I really enjoy gardening and I used to pottery as well. And whenever I can, I travel—it really opens up my mind and helps me reflect on things. Sometimes, it's important to pause for a moment, take a break from your mundane routine, and just observe."

Vidhi Gupta, Co-Founder, Zariin: "For me unwinding means getting away—even if it's just for the weekend. Nothing better than shutting off everything, and just spoil myself with food and spa. I try to cook on a regular basis as I find it very therapeutic."

Mamta Gupta, Co-Founder, Zariin: "For me, it's always a race against time, as a I am also a mom, and my son is only 7. Having said that, it is imperative to make the me-time happen. Not much of a couch potato, I find being outdoors the best way to unwind. I run, bike or play tennis. I play football with my son, or climb a rock wall with him, as often as his and my schedule permits. I have so far succeeded at taking a month-long break from work every year to travel!"
