4 Things Moms Should Do Alone Everyday

Being a mom can be overwhelming. You get no time for yourself. You barely talk to your friends. You have given up all your hobbies. And even TV remote control doesn't like to come in your hands. You feel as if you have no personal identity other than being a Mother. You are always there for your husband, kids and family member. But you often deem that no one understands you. You are doing things for doing and change of the day brings no change for you. Okay, enough of feeling negative!

If you are able to put yourself in a position like above para then you should know that you are not giving time to yourself. Other than loving your family, you should love yourself as well. You should keep yourself also in priority. Else the surge of dissatisfaction, loneliness, and tiredness will keep on haunting you. I am not saying that you should ignore the needs of your loved ones. However, I do believe that a mother needs to take time to remind herself of her identity beyond just being a mom. You should do a few things every day for yourself that can help you reclaim your inner self back.

1. Go for a Walk Alone
I love going for evening walk alone. During this time, I buy vegetables, fruits and stuff I need for myself. I spend time in enjoying the aromas of fresh fruits. Without any hurry, I buy green vegetables with having a little chit-chat with vegetable sellers. I get this alone time and I make most out of it. Walking alone always gives me clarity and time to organize my thoughts, and it leaves me to come home to a more peaceful mind. So, it is ok to ask your husband to watch the baby and then just go and get out of the house. By allowing yourself this alone time, you will be able to align yourself with the priorities of life. You can decide how I should react to problems instead of allowing your emotions to decide for yourself.

2. Read Alone 
I know for mothers with kids under 3, it is difficult to manage reading with all chores and baby care needs. But even if you can manage to make 15 minutes only for reading alone every day, this could make a huge difference in your life. I don't want to list down how reading is so beneficial, but other than giving you wisdom, reading also improves your personality. You can either read a chapter of any book or a post online. If you want to be a mother who is insightful, believes in educating herself, and tries new things, then you must read every day with a focused mind.

3. Call your mother/parents
For a mother, one best friend for life is always her own mother. So call your mother every day and talk to her in peace. Why I am saying talk her being alone, because this way you can ask the silliest thing of the world to her without fearing that your husband would make fun of it. You can make your mother realize that she is the most important person in your life even if you stay in a different city or place. I do this every day.

4. Give some time to your face and health 
Being a mother is the busiest job in the world. And most of the mothers, keep their health in the lowest priority. They keep on ignoring their body signs and delay visits to the salon and even to doctors. This is one such thing you must improve. Give sometime every day to your health and overall body. You can do some yoga or give a quick clean up to your face. Scrub your face in every two-three days. Massage your feet, oil your hair and follow a daily skin care routine to look younger for a longer time.

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…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
