new years resolutionsMake 2016 a New Year for a New You.

Start the year right by committing to a healthier lifestyle.  By introducing a few simple and practical lifestyle changes, you can make a positive impact on not only your health, but your happiness and sense of well-being..

Most New Years Resolutions lists are triggered by a feeling of enthusiasm for the possibilities of weight loss, eating right and dusting off that gym pass.

More often than not, most resolutions are unrealistic. “I’m going to drop three dress sizes in 4 weeks”, “I will go to the gym every day ” and “I am completely abstaining from alcohol”

Setting small, realistic goals, one step at a time is more often than not the more sensible approach in achieving your long term goals.

When taking these small steps, here are some examples:

  • I will limit my intake of soft drinks and alcohol and high-sugar fruit juices.  Stick to water and herbal teas.

Ganesha Festival in Mumbai!

This Ganesh Chaturthi was very special for me, as it was my hubby’s birthday and I was in Mumbai after My daughter’s birth in Himachal. My daughter also turned one this year in May and loved watching colorful streets, decorated pandals and lights everywhere. It is that time of the year again when the streets are dotted with pandits and loud music of the dhols & drums take off the air to celebration as the city wears a festive look. I love this time of year.
Ganesh Chaturthi is a ten day Hindu festival celebrated to honor the elephant-headed God Ganesha’s birthday and arrival at people’s houses. He is the younger son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. He is considered as Vighnharta mean Superhero to people in their bad times. The Ganesha Festival is made special by worshiping the elephant God, meeting relatives and friends with preparation of mouth watering dishes and gifting memorable(s) being presented to near and dear ones. You can see the lords very favorite & famous sweet called “MODAK” in every sweet shop throughout the city.
We also visited some pandals additional to our friends place and had lot of fun eating sweets, singing Aarti’s (Prayers to praise the Lord) and even got some return gifts. I can say it was really a well spent day!
Here are some pictures that I took this time, with decors of beautifully decorated pandals and at our friends place.

MANTRA for “Healthy Mind”


According to you what is most powerful part of Human Body? I feel the Greatest Power is the Power of our Subconscious Mind. I believe in that because I have experienced it in many ways. Whenever I am in a positive state of mind I have always achieved whatever I wanted…and when I am in a negative state of mind, I lost in life and also that has affected to my health in many ways. I believe that once we understand and learn to use the power within us, we can create wonderful changes in our life. We can achieve many goals. So, staying positive is first step, staying in healthy atmosphere and staying with positive people is very important. Our thoughts have a powerful influence; they affect what happens to us in many ways.So, keeping check on your thoughts is very important, our thoughts are the primary creative forces in our life. There are some suppressed thoughts in our subconscious mind DON’T you let them take over your conscious mind! Use your positive thoughts consciously and use them often and it will lead to a whole new life with power and opportunities. In my life I always do what I believe in and I like to stay with positive people around. In my opinion five steps which can lead to positive and healthy life are:
Self Disciplined: Discipline comes through self control. Whether in terms of your diet, fitness, work ethics or relationships, self discipline is one of the very important and significant trait to accomplish our goals and lead to a healthy lifestyle and ultimate happiness and for that self control is important. Removing of temptations and distractions is first step that leads to self control. Improving self discipline means changing up your normal routine, which can be uncomfortable and awkward.
Be Ambitious: Our desires and vision should be very clear “Ask the Universe for what you want, and believe in it – Act, speak, and think as you have already received what you’ve asked for and feel the way you will feel once your desire has been manifested.” Many times I have followed this Mantra and believe me it works!!! So keep your focus strong.
Knowledge is important: I am not talking about degrees; here I am talking about general Knowledge and Lifelong Learning which comes through experience. Legends such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Sachin Tendlukar, Walt Disney all of them don’t hold a Masters Degree but they have knowledge of their craft. They keep on improving and adding to their Knowledge, which makes them highly successful people around the world. So keep on adding to your knowledge and keep learning. Try to think laterally coming out of the routine..which has to break the constraints leading you to innovation.
Good Health: For Healthy mind, healthy body is important. No person can imagine good thoughts without good health. Good Life is equal to good health. So keep a constant check on your health and make your lifestyle healthy by eating healthy and by exercising daily. As it is teuely said that “we become what we eat” so eat healthy and think better.
Keeping Good Company: People around us have a huge impact on our life. Healthy and positive company of people around you makes you healthy and leads to healthy mind. We should think about the people we are spending time with, the same way we think about what we are eating and how we exercise. Actually, all of us have a connection with the universe that brings us unlimited (positive) energy. Staying with Positive people gives a boost to our energies in positive way. A positive aura is created around us as a BUBBLE SHELL, While the challenge with dealing with negative people is that interactions with them tend to be draining our energies. No matter what you say, they always have a negative opinion to offer. So try to be Positive as much you can and company matters a lot.

“Healthy Mind means Healthy Body” So Stay Positive and keep Smiling 😊

Father : Our Friend & Hero :)

He is friend and our hero….A Father is an angel (A guardian Angel) in our life. Who always stand’s by us during thick and thin of our life. A best friend one could probably ask for, a father brings a unique contribution to parenting that no one else can replicate. I belong to generation where fathers never said “He LOVE’s YOU”, not because they did not want to but because they really didn’t want to express their love in words ONLY! My father was strongest person who always stood by me & always tried to provide me the best of what he could- be it best education, best information and discipline. My father is my first hero and also my  friend. I have never told my dad that what I feel for him, I saw him working hard day and night for our bright future. I learnt life lessons by observing him. I adore and miss time when I used to play chess & carom with him. He is my guide and a philosopher.

Coming to the very next generation, my one year old daughter also adores her father too! When her father is back from work she only wants to be with him, she starts throwing tantrums and feels on top of the world. She plays, giggles and dances with him And I feel really overwhelmed & happy when I see them both playing together. Her father communicates in a unique and different manner with her. The interaction has different tones of language & approach.

A number of studies suggest that those fathers, who are involved and playful with their children, eventually nurture their children with better linguistic and cognitive capacities and tactics that can handle stress in a better way. I feel father & kids relation is cherish-able, It is as important as any mothers & their kids relation. If a mother gives you birth in this new world then father teaches you to survive in this world. He provides you wing to fly high. I adore my relationship with my father.

So what special we can do for our father:

  1. Tell him how much you love him.However busy you are, call him at least once a day. Ask him how his day was, did they eat etc. Just keep the conversation going and be a good listener.
  2. To make your dad happy, share some moments of your life with him. Share your daily activities, new hobbies, new friends, and details of your life with him. When you receive any awards, accolades or appreciations share it with him. It gives him immense pleasure seeing his child successful.
  3. You can always teach him how to use the latest technology. If he is not a tech savvy! For instance how to use Skype, video calling, chatting. Once a week you can have a video chat with him.
  4. You can always discuss the problems you are facing at work or can take his advice on any investment ideas. He would be so elated to share his knowledge with you. Express your wishes, and make him familiar with your goals and dreams. After all, no one can be a better friend than your dad.
  5. Spend time with him; go for dinner date with him. Your father might be an extremely busy man, or he may be reserved and silent. But one thing that he always cherishes deep down is spending time with you, in whatever way he can.

Fathers day is around so plan something for your father, Happy Fathers Week 🙂
