I want to be a Low-maintenance mother

We,mothers, deserve to be appreciated, respected, and admired. One way we think, we can make it happen, is by improving our appearances. Makeup, beauty treatments and surgeries are only few methods which today's women are opting to enhance their looks and make themselves attractive. But in today's over taken, over done and over glammed world of women, if you are the one who doesn't have "much time" to work upon pimples, aging, fine lines and wrinkles, then you come under the category of a "Low-maintenance mother". Although, you notice it every day but you fail to take immediate action. You focus on minimum skin/body care and spend maximum of your time with your family.
Believing in this concept LMM (Low-maintenance MOTHER) doesn't mean one should not work to maintain herself. It rather means,instead of hitting the gym, doing yoga at home for keeping ourselves fit. It means, instead of using expensive cosmetics, using natural homemade skin care products. It actually means, instead of wearing only in-fashion clothes, being in classic and all time clothes. I admit, looking beautiful is every woman's right but what we are doing to achieve this beauty becomes an affecting matter once we have families. We can always go for a massage or pedicure, or for any other beauty treatment but low maintenance actually is caring for our body in a less expensive way (in terms of money and time both).
Low maintenance says NO to things lifted, enhanced, or lasered. It supports shopping at inexpensive stores and look for items that are stylish but on sale, and to buy only clothes that we are sure we would wear. Brands should not matter and should never be used as a status symbol. Low-maintenance suggests "Don't long for beauty all the time because beauty is volatile, subjective and short lived." Low-maintenance mothers believe its okay to be less than perfect. Taking care of our body is important and worth it, but a little moderation is necessary. This concept states if we have a childlike heart and caring nature then we shall remain young always. Age is just a number. We know that new clothes, cosmetics, shopping always cheers us up but real contentment is finding an everlasting source of happiness. Real beauty is having a purpose of life that allows us to brush aside the unimportant and focus on the super important. 
And the most crucial thing is Low-maintenance mothers (and wives) are actually a gift for the family. Because such mothers are always busy with significant things of life that they don't give much importance to scrutinize their body. For that matter they don't try to be what they are not. They believe every woman is already beautiful and she can always be more beautiful. It just needs appreciating ourselves, highlighting our natural beauty so that we can shine like a gem regardless of time and age. It is rightly said by someone that "Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart." I am proudly saying that I want to be a Low-maintenance mother.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

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…

The Young Chronicle - A Personal News App For Kids

Our kids these days are spending a good amount of time checking and using today's smartphone. And the most amusing thing is kids are getting, even more, smarter to understand this whole world of apps, games, selfies and video recording. In no time they understand how such and such app works. In very less time, they skill those gimmicky games and challenge us showing the score. However, this screen time should be controlled for good health of a child. For parents, it is a responsibility to keep an eye on what content kids are watching, what types of games they are playing and what things they are sharing on social media.

 Being a new generation people, we can't live separated from our phones. Neither can we keep our kids completely away from using phones. But what we can do is to facilitate things that can be helpful for kids even if they come in the form of phone apps and games. Educational apps and informative games can provide our kids much-needed insight and knowledge. One…
