How to slow down in life ?|Why is it important to slow down?

I already feel some relief as I make up my mind to slow down in life. If you take out a moment and reflect on what all you have done through out the day, you would realise how unnecessarily seeded up our lives are!

This speed causes a lot of stress and anxiety. Speeding up not necessarily means increasing your productivity but a lot of misses, confusion and chaos.We get up in the morning,skip our breakfast , forget to smile at our dear ones and end up in our offices to finish our work. If you think logically, that is not what we are living for.

All I want to say is, we are here to ” Live” and it means , pausing to feel , enjoy and cherish what really matters!

These are things I do to slow down :

  • So this weekend, don’t make a plan to party, to eat out,to meet some not so important people but stay at home and spend some time with yourself, &your family .
  • Let the morning sink in slowly, wake up on a happy note with your loved ones.Cherish your favourite breakfast to kick start a beautiful day.
  • Soak in some Sunlight.It has something that boosts your mood and your health.
  • Go out for a walk in morning or evening. Hear the sounds of nature, chirping of birds and not the alerts of your phone.
  • No social  media for a day. I know it’s not practical to leave social network sites but you can definitely take a break for a day or two.
  • Make it a rule to disconnect from work and tune in with your family once you are in.
  • Stop binge watching and cherish the beauty and taste of food on your plate.Don’t be in a hurry to share the pic on social media.
  • Observe your surroundings, notice what is around.
  • Take out time to know people around you and talk to them

I have made it a point to follow these rules and help my self to unwind from the day to day stress and anxiety.

Never do these things while cooking for your dear ones!

Do you get angry  while cooking? or feel too irritated as you are tiered?do you still cook while you sob in the kitchen due to a fight you had?Do you still cook when you are stressed out ?

If your answer to all these questions is yes ! Please pause and read this before going back to kitchen.

The food we eat nourishes our physical body as well as our etheric body. It nourishes our soul along with our body.

Every food has  two part one is the taste of it and the other is emotion of it.The emotion which some one prepared it with.Now you realised why “Maa ke hath ka khana” is always very special.

These are few of the things which you should never do while cooking or even eating:

Never cry, crib or get angry while cooking. If that is your current situation, calm down, have a glass of water, play some light music. Talk to someone if needed and go back only when you are feeling calmer.

Never watch, discuss or read about a negative news while cooking or eating. Mostof our family members have this weird habit of watching news or some negative or scary series. Please don’t do that. You food has the power to absorb thenegative energy

Never blame the food for making you sick, fat or unhealthy while eating, even for fun: Most of us have this habit of blaming the food for making us fat as it has fat or cholesterol. Food catches our vibration. If you are cursing your food or saying it will have a negative effect on you, it will.

Bless your food: If you remember our grandparents used to pray the food before they started eating. It was a way of showing gratitude which created abundance of food in our lives. It was a way to charge your food with positive emotions to nourish your body and soul. This is exactly we have festivals like Lohri, Pongal and makar-sankranti in our country.

Try doing this and see how positively it will affect the mood and health of your family.

How To Bring Positive Energy Into Your Home This New Year ?|9 Easy Ways To Create Good Vibes In Your Home!

Who doesn’t love their house? It’s a place you make most beautiful memories of your life.

Your home is a place which welcomes you back after a long day, shines and smile on your special day and holds you tight in not so good days. It’s home, we all want to go back to after a tough, tiring day in the word.

Sometime with passage of time, the same house starts feeling not so special and if that is the case with your house as well, it’s time for some change.

What better time than New Year to refresh our homes?

I have tried these things to fill my house with positive energy in 2019.

I have personally tried and discovered a few easy steps to increase the energy of our house for 2019:

Cleanse the air of your house:  Open the windows, you have kept closed for a while and let the fresh air come in. If you stay in a polluted area, an air freshener can bring in some fresh air. Lighting up a Himalayan salt lamp can create positivity around you as well. You can use other crystals as well at home.

De Clutter and clean your surrounding: If you been feeling very low, confused or irritated the reason can be that your surrounding is cluttered and dirty. If that is the case, invest some time in cleaning your house. Remove things that you are not using. Remove things which gives you a bad vibe: Any painting, gift or clothes which make feel bad or negative or sad, just remove them.

Decorate a bit: Put up an art piece: Put something that increases the vibration of your house, it can be any painting, any Fengshui piece or anything that makes you feel happy. You can make little adjustment to your furniture’s or add a few plants indoor. You can even change the curtains or throw a fresh sheet.

Let your house smell good: You will agree that there is something amazing about a fresh smelling house. Good smell brings in a feeling of happiness and well being. Ensure your house smell fresh .You can use scented candles or even keep fresh flowers in your room. You can even use incense sticks or aroma candles.

Let there be light: Let some sunlight enter your room. Proper sunlight kills germs and reduces the chances of you getting sick.  It enriches you with vitamin D, it also reduces high BP. Sunlight increases your serotonin level which boosts your mood and makes you happier. Lite some candles ,have some beautiful lights, it will create ambience and set a very comfortable and happy tone.

Add soft materials: This is something I read on a blog which talked about a science like fengshui, it  called Chi. It says that any tough or sharp edges on your furniture signifies the toughness of life and reflects it to your relationships or home. Add soft textured things to your furniture and decor like soft throws, non- sharp furniture. Use decor items with soft finish and feel.

Play music: We have been listening to this a lot but I have always under estimate the power of music. Make it a ritual to have some music on, in the background and work. Start your day with some music or wind down with light music. Music will release your stress and will calm your nerves.

Add colours: Bring some colours to your surroundings. Colours will not only make your house look beautiful and bright but also create happiness around. Try having at least one bright coloured wall and see the magic. Add some beautiful curtains, cushions or throws around. You can get some bright yellow coloured flowers or a painting representing your taste.

So , what are your plans to re energise your home? I hope you enjoyed reading this article. Please show some love to my article by leaving a comment ,liking and sharing it.
