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!!

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…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…
