Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has taken to exercising indoors to battle the rising levels of air pollution, says health and fitness is of utmost importance to her and her family.

“I am very aware of my surroundings and the environment we live in. Being a mother, I am extremely particular about having a clean home and mindful of the dust and indoor air pollution we are subjecting ourselves to in our daily lives. Health and fitness is of top priority for me and my family,” Kareena said in a statement to IANS.

Promoting the thought that a healthy sleep is more important than a ‘good night's sleep' for an active, more productive and a healthier lifestyle, Kareena said: “To tackle indoor air pollution, I have my house aired out regularly, apart from having plants placed indoors and trust air purifiers to provide clean breathable air for me and my family.”

“Given the poor air quality outdoors, I have taken to exercising indoors in the safe confines of clean air. Even though I enjoy yoga as it brings me close to nature, I would rather exercise in a controlled environment and inhale clean air,” added Kareena, who is a mother to Taimur Ali Khan who will turn 2 this December.
