When there's too much to do...

There are moments, sometimes entire days or weeks when you feel like you simply cannot take any more tasks or chores. Stressful days such as these, leave you exhausted and feeling absolutely drained.
Avoid this "busted" feeling by doing a few simple things like:

Soak your feet in Warm Water:

Research shows that your feet are connected to your feeling of exhaustion. As we know, our feet are connected to the rest of our bodies by the Central Nervous System. Apparently a fungal infection or some sort of bacterial growth can lead to an increased risk of depression or exhaustion. 
So after a long day out, I suggest you soak your feet into lukewarm water for around 20 minutes. Not only will you feel fresh, but also more energetic than before.


EAT!:

"An empty stomach, is the Devil's lair". So when in doubt, just eat. 
Staying hungry throughout the day or forgetting your meals regularly is neither an option, nor a smart thing to do. Observations have shown that hungry people or those who do not take regular meals, get tired easily throughout the day. In contrast, people who maintain good eating habits, and have regular meals every day show better productivity at their respective jobs!


Sleep Better:

We all have known since elementary school that 8 hours of peaceful and undisturbed sleep is necessary for good health. But how many of us actually follow it?
People who sleep at irregular hours over a long span of time, or do not sleep at least 5-6 hours every night are more prone to heart diseases and hypertension.
If you are tired, sleep. It is as simple as that. A better sleeping pattern can only help you handle your daily stresses better, if nothing else.

Meditate:

Now that's not something our generation seems to have time to do any more. Yet, studies have once again proven the power of meditation. It actually helps you calm your frayed nerves and gets you to relax after a long and taxing day. 
I know, some feel sleepy during meditation, but apparently that's OK. Our psychology teacher used to say that feeling sleepy during meditation is a sign that your body has relaxed and is calm enough to go into "sleep mode".

Indulge Yourself:

Be it your favorite book, movie or ice cream...indulging yourself to lighten up the mood is never a bad idea. Favorites exist for exactly that reason...to make you feel better.
All those who have heard "I simply remember my favorite things" from "The Sound Of Music" will understand me fully.

Call Up a Friend (Or Visit One):

Even when we are far away and completely busy with our lives, we shouldn't ever forget our roots. Friends are such a great example of favorite things (or people). A close friend is the best remedy after a taxing day. They never fail to cheer you up, no matter what.


So go ahead and free yourself from your burdens. Time and tide wait for none. The best you can do is face each day with some spirit. Relax and enjoy some of your time, because that is the only way you can work harder and do better.

6 Confessions of a Coffeeholic

The fresh scent of coffee, wafting in the air as soon as you open the can of beans/powder is one of the great ways to start any day, in my not so humble opinion. It takes time to master the art of coffee making, especially when it comes to that particular flavor, which you prefer and that too early in the morning, every single morning.

My obsession for coffee began while I was studying in the higher grades, trying to keep up during exam times to study late into the night (because that is when we ACTUALLY study, no matter what the experts ask us to do). There are so many different kinds of beans out there, combinations of which can lead to an even interesting and sometimes not so exciting flavors. My point is, you need to try it to know it. 
I am a die hard coffee lover and here are my confessions:
1. One cup a day is never enough:
I'm sure this stands true for every coffee drinker out there. How can simply one cup of that steaming, bubbling, aromatic beverage, ever be enough? One…

How to Groom a Groom Classes (Part1)

Ethics classes at Loreto college, in the third year, are different.

Quite... different...

As a young lady, the extent of your education or skill set should not depend upon how well you can cook "butter chicken" or how nicely you drape your saree.

To be honest, I can't do either very well.

But the bottom line is that I'm willing to learn all of that, for my sake and not for the purpose of bagging the next best groom on an online match-making website.


Gender based qualifications required for marriage: Sister (our principal), started class by reciting a few posts put up on a certain match making website.

Interestingly...the guy's resume would go something like this...."Tall banker/engineer/doctor/etc. earning --- of 40 years, coming from well educated Brahmin/Kshatriya family. Looking for fair complexioned, 5'4" or taller girl between ages 20-30, coming from good Brahmin family."



And vice versa for the prospective bride's ad.

Therefore... In …

Little Things

Have you ever wondered exactly what makes your mornings good or your sleep a peaceful one? Why a small text can make your day or how an old friend can bring out your smile? What makes you happy and why do you need those regular encouragements from people that matter (or sometimes even form those who apparently do not)?
To start making sense, I would now have to narrate to you this one particular experience that lead me to think on this matter for a relatively longer period of time...
The Grumpy Walker: Yeah, that's me. For my dear readers, here I am going to specify that when I'm in one of those moods, I prefer a walk. So a few days back when I was upset about some or the other completely obscene matter, I'd chosen to walk it off on the streets of Gariahat Market, just because. The vendors shouting out new offers along with the regular crowds didn't seem to be helpful either.  As I headed down towards main market from Golpark, I got slowed down due to the early mornin…
