15 points to prove that you are watching excess of TV

Do you have TV lovers at home who can't live without watching TV? I'm married in a family where watching TV is a family trait that is passed from one generation to other. My in-laws are big-big TV lovers, my husband is another TV freak whom I know and now my son is following the path of his father with developing his liking for TV. Basically I see my whole family as a TV addict tribe. Thanks to new era of technology we can watch TV any time and anywhere. And this concept of repeat telecast has given people the opportunity to catch their number one shows irrespective of schedules and timings.
Below are the few points with which, if you can relate yourself (or your family) then you may be watching too much of TV:
1. You measure how many daily soaps you can accommodate within the time you have, before going out for work or any other commitment.
2. You do multitasking with watching TV, like chopping, cutting, repairing and even anything which can be done with gazing TV.
3. You want to have breakfast/lunch/dinner in your living room (where TV lives).
4. You started liking your favourite show's theme songs. No matter they are good in listening or not. 
5. When you bother to stand up for any reason during the TV show telecast, you can see a clean indication on the cushion/sofa/mattress where you were sitting.
6. You can control even nature's call while watching TV and you can regulate it to happen after show ends.
7. You started considering yourself as an expert for the matters like politics, crime, economics and medicines. All thanks to those countless news channels.  
8. About few episodes before show's final episode, you start worrying what you will do during that time when show ends.
9. In every new daily soap, you can recognize its characters and you can tell in which shows they have already worked. 
10. You have mastered placing things around TV so that you can easily get them when needed. For example, water bottles next to sofa. 
11. You feel pain for the TV characters when they are not well or are injured.
12. You can't remember your daily schedule but you remember timings of your best shows.
13. You don't want interruption while watching TV so you have learned ignoring what is happening around you. For example, cries of your baby.
14. Immediately after coming back from market, you switch on the TV rather than wearing off your shoes.
15. And you become tensed with the thought that your TV is not working and you are missing your "so natural", "so real" and "so entertaining" TV soaps.
This idiot box has become the most popular entertainment medium for millions of people around the world. But apart from entertaining and relaxing us, it is damaging us also. Watching excess TV can cause diabetes, depression and heart diseases. It can pile up extra kilos in our bodies. Also, TV watching affects kids with hampering development of their brains and concentration abilities. So please put down the remote and go for a book or other healthy time pass options. Do it for yourself and most importantly for your kids.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
