1. Game changer – personally, mentally and spiritually. [But] it was all worth it! It taught me the best lessons that I needed to learn all my life.

2. I won’t call it the craziest, but the most important thing that I needed to do once in my lifetime happened in 2017 – hajj. And I am so grateful for that. I would always remember this year.

4. I have already quit smoking, and feel that I should now start working on how to manage my anger.

5. I’m not really a true believer of New Year resolutions but if I really want to do something in life, I wouldn’t wait for an entire year to make a promise to myself. Regardless of that, I’ll try to be a better person altogether, than I have been.

4. Binge eating for sure! Though I’m very conscious about my diet and exercise a lot, every now and then, I get a little crazy and binge eat. This is one bad habit that I’m getting rid of for sure.

5. I’m going to spend at least five to 10 minutes of my day focusing on myself and what I need to function better. I spend so much time on shoots and housework. This year, there’s going to be more ‘me time.’
