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.

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…
