Most importantly I always feel better while going to hospital and providing treatments to patients.” He is mostly busy in work. So he doesn’t have a fixed time for food and exercise. Despite the fact that he is the prime minister of Bhutan, he prefers a simple lifestyle and wears typical Bhutanese dress most of the time. Moreover he prefers simple food.
