Very rarely in life do we get a CTRL-ALT-DEL button to restart and reboot from a point where we think the change in our lives can be redirected.
You can retrain and reboot your mind, body and soul to function better, react better and deliver better.
And this gets even more special. CtrlAltZen not only enables you to restart, it allows you to reset with hope, conviction and results.
We are not the 'Sage on the stage but the guide on the side'.

"We are what we repeatedly do, success hence is not a by-product of confidence but of habit." To create success through our work, lifestyle, relationships and spirituality is then considered as the 'Primary' food we consume. And the 'Secondary' food becomes the food we eat from a plate. Every single aspect that we consume as a habit creates our now and each 'NOW' moment is eventually stringed as our life events is the philosophy behind ‘CTRL ALT ZEN’ her venture.
She chose to be on the path of health, well-being and a coach to contribute and help people change their 'NOW' moments so that they can string life of their choice and create their own success.
All four elements of – Fire (sunlight/energy), Water (liquids/hydration), Air (oxygen/breath) and Earth (food/nourishment) – and how we consume it creates our path of health and wealth.
Payal's journey through MBA, media corporate career, an entrepreneur, mother of a child who has had to fight multiple battles, urged her to connect spirituality and other modalities to food and create a sustainable source of strength, vitality and energy.
My top three goals upon starting the 8-month program were - Improve my digestion, lose weight, stress management, and mood management.
Payal took time to understand my medical history, browsed through previous medical records and tied all the pieces together. She then tackled the most critical areas first. She also shared the understanding of my history of diagnoses and the possible reasons behind them. She also shared tips, reading material that was helpful.
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program has been : Improvement in my digestion, I am in better control and better equipped to deal with my digestion issues.
The most significant overall change I have noticed has been –
I would describe my coach as : Payal is patient and takes time to answer questions.
Over the last few years, I have been suffering from digestion and other ailments. More than the ailment, it was the lack of clarity on the causes behind it was making it all the more difficult to find a way forward to improve my health. I had tried Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda too but without much improvement.
>When I spoke to Payal, she studied my medical reports for the last 3 years. She also reviewed the overall issues faced by me since I was a kid. By doing so, she was able to pinpoint the real causes which has accumulated over the years and presenting itself in the form of physiological issues now. She also gave detailed insight on the food including supplements and other lifestyle changes that will help me in improving my overall health. I am really grateful to Payal for her guidance and would recommend her to anyone looking for overall health improvement.
The best part of the program has been that now I know my body well. Why reactions happen, the triggers, the interconnections between different organs and its functions is quite clear to me. Hair fall can happen coz' of thyroid imbalance, bad liver and low ferritin. Need to work on all 3 to have good hair. This was quite a learning!
My moods are better after 10 months, sleep is better, fatigue is less, breathing is easier, hunger is in control, sensitivity in my lips and fingertips is almost gone.
Thyroid readings have improved. Last year was extremely difficult and painful. But this year, I feel more in control of things. My dehydration is gone. I am not eating junkfood at all. Weight has come down from 59 to 55. Which I am very happy about...
Bringing some old-school before and after collages to my feed (pun kinda intended). Swipe to see 2 sets of pictures, featuring my August 2019 versus August 2020 avatars. A lot of alarm bells rang for me, last year when I saw myself in these pictures. I was stress eating, exercising very little and travelling a lot. I had gained 12 kilos in the last 2 years. The weight crept up insidiously and with ample help from my lack of discipline, making me balloon into 70 kilos on a 5'3" frame.
As an above knee amputee, keeping my weight within an optimal range is super important. I reached out to my brilliant friend and health coach @payal14 for help. With her guidance, I went off certain food groups and learnt to build a robust meal plan with appropriate substitutes. I still eat a lot, but now I eat right and often cook my own food - a real game-changer. Almost 11 months into this journey, and I've lost 10 kilos along the way. Plus more importantly, I have no trouble keeping them off. Thank you @payal.ctrlaltzen!
Ctrl Alt Zen - Be Better Everyday is your perfect place.. Payal can identify the exact cause and heal the body inside out with brilliant changes while keeping in mind the mindset of an older Indian parent and what they're used to and comfortable with.. Do plz holler at her at least initially to get a feel and the fact that she is an Indian woman with international experience makes her even more of a go getter.. I've yet to work with a colleague in the same space who is as empathetic and understanding..
In the storm of knowledge that's available at the click of your fingertips, would you really want some more medical, nutritional or health information especially since we're a good 24 months into the most life changing times of our lives. The plethora of knowledge that gets thrown at you at breakneck speed can tell you how drinking alcohol is bad, how processed food is detrimental and how not exercising can add to your woes, but one headache and you are clueless. All the articles that you have read, all the videos you might have watched or all the enlightening WhatsApp forwards that you would have gotten, don't come in handy. So, you reach out to your trusted painkiller. Pop one, two, or a few and wait. Wait for the searing pain to subside so that you can go back to whatever that you were doing before it struck you.READ FULL ARTICLE
It's not just a tagline. It's the ethos and belief system of CtrlAltZen. It stands for "Progress over Perfection".
No more new year resolutions or summer ready or beach body chants. It's not about when the time is right. It's not about tomorrow, next week or next month. It's about NOW!
It's about how you are improving each and everyday. It's about the quintessential dream everyone has, but here we make it happen, one day at a time!
Think about it for a few moments. You probably already know what you want to change. About your eating and living habits, eductions, career, financial stress or spirituality.

"A State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Health is a dynamic condition resulting from a body's constant adjustment and adaptation in response to stresses and changes in the environment for maintaining an inner equilibrium called homeostasis.
"Manage your energy, not your time." This is the quote that made Tony Schwartz famous. And it's one that we believe best represents a truly efficient lifestyle in the 21st century. Yet, living "manage your energy, not your time" is incredibly hard. It probably takes time to fully grasp it.
Trying to make them jealous, or going AWOL to get a reaction out of them is not a good idea if you want something long-lasting. Usually people use these games to stoke the fires in relationships and test boundaries, but these actions are almost always guaranteed to make the relationship short-lived, resulting in the downfall. Everyone wants a butterflies-in-your-stomach still-in-love-50-years-later kind of love. But, based on the research of failed relationships and marriages, not many are willing to put in the work.
Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience - something that touches us all.
The wisdom of a monk is aspirational not because a monk knows it all or better but the monk has reached a place of calm and Zen through the learning of life lessons. Internal peace, strength and aptitude to take on the world without having to give up the worldly pleasures is the kind of spirituality we seek but don't know where to find. Armor it with the understanding, discipline and resilience of balancing your nutritional needs and you have the best of both worlds. A dazzling aura as your external beauty and health and the level of inner Zen & enlightenment to aid your inner beauty and health. The right balance of your primary and secondary food to get the best out of the circle of life.
This is a six-month coaching program where you get to analyze every aspect of their life and how it impacts your soul, body and mind along with the nutritional discrepancies and how bringing balance in even one can make a massive cascading impact in the rest of the spheres. To be hand held through this journey despite the seasons, occasions, joy or stress helps create a new level of understanding of the what's and how's. An experience bringing about life changing breakthroughs eventually will be the secret sauce for creating and converting one into 'the dazzling monk' - aura of a star and Zen of a monk!
