Caring for Yourself

Leading our lives under variant day to day pressure and uncertainties very often leaves us careworn and it is quite natural. From the fear of running out time of while on the way to office, to the nags of your loved ones for not being able to manage some time to ask for their well-beings, from the frustration of not getting the desired hike/ promotion or recognition at your office to the irritation of missing your favorite TV show at home, gives birth to an unsatisfied you somewhere. You do start writing an email, but end surfing the internet uselessly. You think of joining a gym to shape yourself up, but feel too lazy to make a call for an appointment.

If you face these things in your life, you need to take some time out for yourselves. After all, charity begins at home. Here are some of the ways to give yourself the required boost to regain your lost fervor and will make you find tune with the life.

  • START YOUR DAY with having a glass of lukewarm water. Studies suggest that our body needs to regulate its temperature around 98.6 degree, and drinking cold water needs to burn out some calories to maintain the temperature. So quite obviously, some droughts of lukewarm water can help you save those calories and purify your body by removing the unwanted toxins. It will make you feel fresh and energetic.

Go for a morning walk, if you can and if you can't, don't worry, have a stroll on the roof and let the morning breeze unwind your worries.


  • LEARN TO SAY NO- If you feel it difficult to say NO, you burden yourself with unwanted activities which eat up your leisure time and finally make you hurry all the time. Remember, when we strive to save minutes, we actually had already spoiled hours. But yes! Learn to recognize the necessities.


  • KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR DIET- Its not important how much you eat; what you eat makes a difference. Try your best to include all the nutrients in your diet. It goes without saying that one needs to have the proper diet to make the system of body run smoothly. Once you are sure of your healthy diet, even this thought leaves an positive impact and makes you feel sound inside.
  • LOOK YOUR BEST- Looking beautiful or handsome is something not within the reach of every one of us, but we can look our best. Keep yourself spruce and neat. Now looking best does not mean putting on fashionable attires and wearing expensive make-ups.
  • GIVE YOURSELF A REWARD- Whenever you succeed at doing what you always longed for, give yourself a reward. Seen a child getting beyond him/herself to get his/her favorite present at the Birthday? Truly, we still have a child somewhere in our heart even today. Give it a wing to fly by rewarding.
  • DON'T IGNORE THE SMALL HAPPINESSES- Yesterday you felt like enjoying the rain, but you thought you would catch a cold and you abstained from it. But why don't think, it could have given you the peace of mind that millions can't buy. Don't hold your emotions all the time; learn to enjoy the greater happinesses in small packages too.
  • SAVE SOMETIME FOR YOUR HOBBIES- Manage to get sometime for your hobbies. They help you keep those stresses at bay. It enhances your efficiency. So if you like listening to songs or dancing let your toes dance on the rhythm.
  • GET THE SLEEP OF 6 TO 8 HOURS- The sleep of 6 to 8 hours is necessary to give you a fresh mood when you wake up. Watch out for your sleeping arrangements; keep the surrounding peaceful to give yourself a sound sleep. Avoid taking any nicotine product while going to sleep.
  • MAINTAIN PROPER TIMINGS FOR YOUR MEAL- Stick to your meal timings and do skip your meals. However opting for a full day fast every month or fortnight is supposed good for the digestive system.
