It’s Okay to be Messy, But It’s More than Impressive to be Organized

Blog, Education, Life
 The Personal Life-Changing Benefits of Being Organized We always get to hear statements such as, ‘I have messed up my day’ or ‘I am really a messy person by nature’. Whether it is from family members or friends, the standard response to such statements is silence, or ‘It’s Okay to be Messy, don’t brood over it’. But, I can or will never give this response. I always say, ‘Don’t be. Change it if you want good things too happened in life. Get organized and have a satisfying life’. Yes! I am an organized soul. Success, or failure, I do not bother, I appreciate myself for being planned and organized. Change Your Life Today - It's In Your Hands - Be Organized It’s true that it is completely fine to be…

Everything Changed as I Began to Change My Sleep Cycle The First Rays of the Sun Yes! On most of the Sunday’s, I get up as early as 3.00 AM to go to my Temple for my weekly prayer. But, other than that, I don’t remember, when was the last time, that I witnessed the early morning sunrise on a weekday. It’s been more than a decade, that I get up only around 6.00 AM in the morning. Thanks to my husband, who is practicing ‘Early to Office, Early to Home’, because he is traumatized by the traffic on the road. Just like school children, the moment clock strikes 7.10 AM, he is out on the road with his laptop bag and lunch box. His early schedule has made me…

Just like Books, Greens & Vegetables are My Best Friends

What I Consume Matters, but What I like also Matters… Vegetable Street Market ‘Would you like to eat an apple?’ ‘Some grapes, maybe?’ ‘Do you like to have an orange?’ And the answer was always a silence with a subtle smile or no. Maybe, if the mood was right, the banana was the only constant answer. I was always a little different child. Unlike other children, whose eyes sparkled hearing the names of fruits, my face frowned when heard one. My hands never approached fruits. The too sweet or too sour taste never attracted me. Not just in the house, even in public gatherings, it was the same. There were hundreds of times, when my parents, had to face mysterious faces of others during social gatherings. I have never had…

Yes! It is evident that there is a rise of standup comedy in India. Yet, the future seems to be shaky of this entertainment circuit, if one of the core…

The Malign Impact of Self-Criticism

The Malign Impact of Self-Criticism

Blog, Education, Personal, Relationship
Improving self-esteem and dealing with self-conversations Accept or deny, you are constantly judged and criticized. You can shout it on a loudspeaker that, ‘You never judge anyone’. The reality is all of us judge each other from the moment we get to know each other. If this is not enough, we have self-criticisms that run parallelly. All this cohesively has a malign impact on our self-esteem. Regardless of what the external world says, if the little inner voice understands you, there is nothing that can stop you from living a happy and content life. Don't Let People Hamper You It is very rare that we appreciate ourselves and look up to the best qualities and strengths of our personality. Most often, the self-criticism has been negative talk with the inner…

Honesty or Diplomacy: The Muddle of Life

Blog, Education, Parenting, Personal, Relationship
How do you declutter the clutter of honesty and diplomacy? There is one question that is part of every childhood. Irrespective of which era you are born, you will undeniably be faced with this question. Guess which is this question?

Born in an era where there was hardly any technology around, book reading was one of my favorite habits and time pass that I had developed for myself. My friends were the first source of inspiration for book reading. Books have always played the most…

Atychiphobia – The Fear of Failure This morning when I was in the lift, witnessed a parent thrashing her little one for the marks she had scored. This took me to my school days.

An age when I dint even know how to pronounce this word, Atychiphobia – The Fear of Failure got deeply rooted into my system.
