9.5 Reasons why I am a better person now

If anyone asks me to describe my pregnancy in one word, I would say it was "amazing". Amazing because it has changed the deepest end of my soul. Some days that amazement was more about how I could be so emotional and unwell, and still expected to go office and work at home, but overall it was by a little human being who was growing inside me. I was astonished to see my body's ability to handle so many things even being pregnant. I was also amazed at the changes in me. Beyond the obvious, physical things that no one can ignore, I changed for better as a person after my pregnancy. I’m not saying that I was a jerk until I got pregnant but I had spent 28 years of my life  mostly taking care of myself and worrying about my career.
Here are some of the points which can prove how I am a better person after becoming a Mother:
Point 1: I now appreciate my mother so much. After becoming a mother, I realized the challenges that a mother faces in handing baby, first when it is inside and then when the baby comes outside. I finally understood the depths of what my parents have gone through all these years. I even have a greater appreciation for all my loved ones now.
Point 2 : I now can handle people vomiting next to me. Honestly, I am more humble for sick people now. I puked so much during my pregnancy and I found people helping me in those difficult public situations. This has really changed my heart. I am more generous and noble with people now.
Point 3 : Love is of three types : Love, worship, and Relinquishment. I now have a true understanding of unconditional love which is type 3 on this list. To surrender is the most difficult nature, isn't it? This love is the purest as we don't expect anything in return. And the most wonderful thing is, only a Mother has this love for her Babies. It is really a gift to be able to feel this way for another human.
Point 4 : I’m more sensitive towards the needs of others. Sometimes I am too sensitive (I admit) and thanks to those hormones that have changed my body and my nature. These feelings, since I got pregnant, have made me a more considerate wife, daughter, sister, and friend.
Point 5 : After becoming a mother, you need to master one important thing. LET GO. After getting pregnant, I have learned to let go of the little things. I was never a control freak but now my priorities have changed and shifted more towards my family. Is my family safe and healthy? All Is Well. Everything else is just gravy.
Point 6 :  I have slowed down and this is for good reasons. Immediate action for everything makes every mother stressed and tired. So if the house is dirty, clean it in a slow pace. If guests are coming, slow down, shorten the menu and work easily. I don't seek perfection. Rather I focus on fixing things. It’s such a relaxing and much less stressful way of living life.
Point 7 : I am now careful for wasting food. I have even started making good food choices so that I can stay healthy and wastage is minimum. As I am more empathetic towards people, wasting food makes me think about those street people who are facing challenges of getting food to eat. I am grateful to my life that I have enough food for my family but I don't want them to throw this essential thing.
Point 8 : Somehow I see every child lovable now.Whether it's about my son or any other baby. I feel love for babies in my friend circle and neighborhood. I even feel pain for babies who beg on the street. If possible, I try to give them something ( I refrain from giving money) which I can bring smiles on their faces. So I always keep extra biscuits or fruits in my bag so that I can give it to such kids.
Point 9 : I have started taking my body seriously. I care for each discomfort and strange bodily condition, and take action for it. I want to stay fit and healthy so that I can enjoy each moment of my life with my son. So I am more aware and informed now.
Point 9 1/2 : My house is cleaner now.Okay, this one is just for fun so it only counts as half on the list. I now try to keep my house clean and sanitized because of health reasons. But sometimes we can't avoid the mess and it happens in my house also! But again I try to keep it tidy with best of my slow and mindful efforts.

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…
