No WhatsApp/ No Facebook Challenge - Can You Take It?

You must have heard of ice bucket challenge, dare to do challenge, rock climbing challenge, fitness challenge etc. But have you heard about the recent No WhatsApp/ No Facebook Challenge?

No Social Media Challenge - Vibhu & Me
Yes, this is a new and exciting challenge that brings a lot of rewards to those who take it.Taking on the No WhatsApp or No Facebook requires you stay offline on one or more of your social media accounts for a certain period of time (say, 24 hours). Basically, the idea is to keep you look and feel things beyond the virtual world. There is no doubt that the virtual world has become a very important part of our lives. Simply because of the huge means of benefits and aids, it brings to us. But there is no justification for being addicted to it.

There are comics circulating on social media about the social media addiction of people. But to be frank this is a serious psychological issue we all need to be aware of. When I had heard about this  No WhatsApp or No Facebook challenge for the first time, some six months back, I was quite reluctant of taking it. However, a description of the possible advantages encouraged me to try at least once and I gave it a shot last week.

The No Facebook No WhatsApp challenge might cater to you the following amazing benefits:

  1. Remaining offline gives you enough time to pay attention to the real world that is incredibly beautiful.
  2. Feeling the real world and meeting people in person instead of on typing and sharing a way of life gets you a better contentment, greater confidence to face the world and improves you intellectual thoughts process.
  3. You would certainly attain a better sleep if you stay away from social media for some time. Continued social media chats linger your brain to what more is going on in a post you were following today and thus affects the time of rest to your brain resulting into loss of sound sleep.
  4. Social media is a means not an end. But when one gets addicted to it, your way of looking at the world is also affected resulting in more stress, whether one realized it or not. Staying away from social media for a while helps in managing stress in a better way.
  5. There is no counting of seconds that one social media addict wastes on typing in a day in which he needs to attend to more important jobs. At least your focus on your job is badly affected in this way. You can get time to reintegrate your focus to your responsibility. 
  6. Not just this, many people staying away from social media for a certain while cite that they could get time to pay attention to their own selves. They afford to eat better, sleep better and perform better in their job too.

When you go back to a life where there is no WhatsApp or Facebook, you don't worry about the notifications, you don't care about battery getting low, you get enough time to pay attention to yourself. You look at your figure in the mirror you make better diet plans because merely keeping away from these two apps for a day will give you enough

I know, some people might simply decline it as they find it extremely difficult to spend a day without getting online on WhatsApp or Facebook. But that's the challenge for you!

If you have played dare in school/ college, you are well aware of the self-esteem that you earn after completing such a challenge. But along with the same, this No WhatsApp No Facebook challenge brings you many other advantages. Give it a shot and share your experience with us too.

Take this New &Exciting Challenge and experience benefits like never before!!

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…
