My New Year Resolution That Never Changes

Ever since I understood the meaning of New Year resolution, I wished just one thing "I want to keep myself Happy". And for this coming year also I'm taking the same purpose for myself. I’ll try to do everything that it takes to make myself happy. People make different resolutions with every new year. I would admit, I did that also. I made new resolutions for me and tried to complete them. But soon I realized that everything in this world is related to happiness one or the other way. Happiness is so important to us, both as individuals and as a world, primarily because happiness is really everything.

My New Year Resolution That Never Changes by Vibhu & Me
We tend to forget how important happiness is and get consumed with our own negative feelings of doom and gloom from time to time. We sometimes don’t consciously realize that we are doing this to ourselves. As human beings, although we are highly "thought" oriented, the quality of our lives is ultimately ENTIRELY determined by our emotions. How we feel, how we think and then how we do. As individuals and as societies, happiness should be both our highest goal and an extremely effective means of achieving many other goals. And that's why I have stopped making new resolutions every year. I stick to just one goal for the whole year. BE HAPPY, SEE HAPPY

Being happy could be a mix of these things (or more) for me:

1. Facing life's challenges with smile
2. A healthy and Stress-free living
4. Some form of spirituality
5. Balancing family and work
6. and most importantly my son's happiness

I believe feeling happy is intrinsically important for oneself. If I am happy, I shall be more compassionate and feeling healthier both physically and emotionally. I shall be more creative, energetic and jolly only if I am happy. I shall try to make myself strong enough to face outside distractions and influences. Very few of us live our lives in complete isolation. We have kids, families, friends and work colleagues with whom we interact on a daily basis so if I am happy, then it’s likely to mean that my family and friends feel happier too. I know that it's hard to achieve complete happiness because I am trying this for last few years. But I want to continue my efforts. Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect, it means that I have decided to look beyond imperfections.

So here are my 7 mantras to happiness that I try to follow every year:

1. Think Less, Feel More
2. Frown Less, Smile More
3. Talk Less, Listen More
4. Judge Less, Accept More
5. Watch Less, Do More
6. Complain Less, Appreciate More
7. Fear Less, Love More

What are your new year resolutions? Did you get time to check your earlier resolutions and how much you achieved? Now is the time to start doing this exercise. The year 2018 is so close to joining the party. And if you are making resolutions for the new year, please include one point from my side. "I want to keep myself Happy".  This is the one thing that is all.

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…
