Outwitting Boredom

Children's boredom is a very grave problem. As the children's vacations start,initially the children are very exited and roam about the house or veranda celebrating their vacations but then as the vacation proceeds, it leaves the children in a problem called 'BOREDOM'.

Here I am sharing some activities that children as well as adults can do:

1) Learn New Things:
It is said that learning needs no age. Always try to learn and search new things. Doing this will drastically improve your confidence and it is also a nice pass time. You can gain extra talent. You can learn any dam thing like a new language, mobile repairing, cooking, meditation, yoga, games etc. There are innumerable such things.

2) Join New Classes:
Vacation is the time to join extra classes than regular tuition classes. I have just joined a yoga class that has brought immense benefits in me. Make children join various classes in which they learn new things and that they can make new friends.

3) Carry Out Good Deeds:
Carrying out good deeds is the activity that should be done every single day. Make your child feed cows, dogs,cats etc that wander about the roads or streets. In India, this is a very auspicious deed that earns you blessings(punya). Do donation to needy and poor people. This activity will teach the children to share.Doing good deeds is the most most important activity that a human should include in his/her life. Carry out one good deed at least,everyday.Children will feel good after doing such things.

4) Improve Your Skills:
 Improving ones skills is a nice option to boredom. Suppose, improve your English or any other language. Like I know English very well but to improve it, I read the Newspaper everyday, underline the words that I don't know and then I search their meanings. This has helped me a lot increase my vocabulary. You can do many such similar things like improve cooking,reading,languages,speaking etc. This will help children improve.

5) Come out of the house:
You should always come out of your house when you are getting bored. This will benefit you. It will be a relaxation to your eyes and the body. You will feel fresh and your boredom will vanish on seeing the surroundings and the people.

6) Draw Or Make Some Craft:
It is very nice to do some drawing or sketching in the vacations. You could even make some nice craft.Do some coloring and just stay lite. 

There are many of things that one can do when he/she is bored. Yet, nothing can completely outwit the problem of boredom :p

Today I have come up with a topic called MEDITATION. Meditation is the state of complete thoughtlessness of the mind. In simple it is the process of stopping our minds completely from generating thoughts and thus relaxing it.

Benefits Of Meditation :
  • Mind always stays to positive thoughts and far from negative ones and thus sorrow also decreases slowly.These positive thoughts make you happy.
  • The negativity becomes less and its effects on life also decreases.
  • The mind only looks at the goodness of other person and always tries to seek happiness.
  • A person gets the strength to face difficulties,people and situations by practicing it regularly.
  • Practicing it generates radiant energy in one.
  • Your aura becomes clean and meditation prevents the entry of bacteria or virus is ones body.
  • Practicing it will improve ones remembering power.
There are numerous benefits of meditation. Practicing it is really an art.

Guidance For Meditation :
  • Prefer doing it in the morning after bathing, because bathing makes one peaceful and improves blood circulation.
  • The best time of meditation is the time between 3:30 AM to 10:00 PM.
  • Time duration of meditation is not fixed, but 15-30 is enough for making mind calm. Ones who can do more should not stop and continue it.(In ancient India the saints did meditation for years together by sitting at one place without food and in every weather, and thus they attained eternal peace.)
Some Facts And Reason :
  • Meditation should be done only between 3:30 AM to 10:00 PM because after 10:00 PM the dissatisfied souls wander in the atmosphere. Thus you should not do meditation in this time period as to save yourself from their evil effects.
  • During meditation do not worry if your hands and legs get a little warm or you feel a tingling effect. This is a sign of negative energy going out of your body.
  • After some time of regular meditation when all the negative energies of your body drain out, you will feel cool waves coming out of your hands and feet. This will be a good sign of entry of positive energy in your body.(All this will not happen in a sudden. It will take considerable time even after doing regular meditation.)
So, these are some meditation facts that will, I hope inspire you all to start meditating as it inspired me.

And....Remember that all this will not happen in a day or two. Firstly you will not even be able to meditate as it needs much concentration. As you close your eyes, your mind will surely take you to cinema,your problems,food etc every dam thing, but slowly and steadily you will overcome all this.

Before starting meditation it is very important to learn it. There are different ways and means so you can just learn one from a meditation teacher or even the internet.

Cheese Oregano Toast...

Today I have got a new exciting recipe for all. It called a Cheese Oregano Toast.
So, I would like to share its magic(recipe).

So for the ingredients:

We will need
  • 2 layers of bread(white or brown)
  • 1 cheese cube 
  • Some oregano
And we will need a toaster.

So now lets have a look at its method..
  •  First of all take a layer of bread and place some thin layers of cheese on it. Put more layers if you want extra cheese oregano toast.
  • Then sprinkle some oregano on it. I would prefer to sprinkle more oregano as it would taste superb.
  • Then cover this layer of bread with the other one and carefully place it in the toaster. Preheat the toaster before placing the toast in it.
  • Apply some butter on the upper surface of your toast so that when it goes in the toaster, it will get a nice brown color on it. 
  • Keep looking your toast time to time by opening the toaster. 
  • Take it out when it seems to have turned brown and crispy.
  • Place it on a plate and serve.
One specialty apart from its taste is that this toast is equally tasty when it is cold and hot.

So, enjoy your special Cheese Oregano Toast and just enjoy life  :)

Ways To Improve Your Communication Skills...

Hey there! Today I have a nice and important topic to discuss which I know will surely be helpful to all who read this post.
This topic is about the ways to improve one's communication skills instantly.
So, how can you do it? Lets have a look at some ways -


By thinking about your thoughts before you speak, you will increase your effectiveness as a powerful communicator. So, think before you speak and know fully what you speak.


Fear is the biggest obstruction in the way of fluent communication. Thus, overcome it.
Focus on the-

  • Listener and not yourself
  • Topic


Conversation should be like a match, each person having a turn to give and receive. Allow your opponent to speak and respect his/her point of view.


This is the most important part of any successful communication. Speak with passion and allow your feelings and body language to flow naturally.If you will believe in your own message then you will easily be able to make others believe in your thought too.


Remember your major points and repeat them time to time to put a strong impact on the opponent.


Avoid daydreaming and focus on your speaker. Do not take long time to think about your speech.


Mind mapping is a system of recording our thoughts so that we can remember them well. In order to do this, use symbols, words and colors etc. These markings will definitely be helpful in your conversation and to remember things and topics.


In talking to others be prepared to give more details. Put your most important statement first and then support it with details to make a strong impact on the opponent. The details with your main point will help to a great extent to make your opponent believe in you.


Shorter sentences contain more power. They are also easier to interpret.


Negative feelings drain out your energy. Thus, gain control of your feelings.


Good manners are always nice to use. Say such things as"please, thank you, excuse me" with sincerity. Show your interest in the conversation.

So, these were some points to improve your communication skills instantly and very effectively.
I hope you all will like it and that it becomes useful to all.

Last but not the least, here is a quote -

Your words are the clothes that 
thoughts wear, so dress them well

Some Inspiring Thoughts

Hello all. I just came across some very nice sayings and epigrams in "Sanskrit"(an Indian language) and so just thought to share their meaning.
I couldn't write the sayings in Sanskrit but i am writing its translation and its meaning...

1)  A saying told by good men with ease is written on stone. Even the oath taken by an evil men is like a letter written on water.


Anything told by good men even casually is so effective and valuable that it is worthy to be engraved on a stone so that it remains permanently. But an oath even taken by an evil person is so false and temporary that is can be compared to a letter written on water(so temporary). Thus by this saying the poet is trying to tell us the value of saying of a good and an evil person.

2)  As a big stone is placed on a mountain with great effort, within a moment it is made to fall down. Similarly soul in matter of virtues and vices. One finds it difficult to rise up to acquire virtues but easy to fall down to be acquainted with vices.


In this verse the poet is saying that as a stone is place on a mountain with great effort, similarly within seconds it is made to fall from the mountain. Making it fall down is much much easy compared to taking it up. Similarly for a soul, to go towards the path of goodness is very difficult but falling in the wrong path is very easy. Ex. if a person wants to become a good men who is very kind and without any evil intention then it will take a considerable time and even strong will power. But if the same person wants to become a evil one then it will not at all take time or will power. It will be very easy for him/her.Thus this is the message given by the poet.Constant efforts should be done to become a good men and to make our lives meaningful. 

3) As gold is tested in 4 ways-by rubbing,cutting,heating and striking, similarly a man is also tested by 4 ways-by knowledge, action, character and qualities.


In this verse the poet is describing the tests by which gold and a man can be examined. The gold is tested of its purity in 4 ways-by rubbing on stone,cutting,heating it in fire and by striking it. By these tests only the purity of gold is tested and it is made beautiful. Similarly a man is also tested by 4 ways for this purity of soul and character-by his/her knowledge,character,skills/qualities and actions. Thus these are the measures to check the purity of gold and a human being.

4) With the change of time whatever is learnt is lost.The trees having strong roots fall down and water existing in reservoirs dry up. Whatever is offered as an oblation in fire and whatever is given remains as it is for ever.


By this verse the poet is trying to tell us the changes that time can cause.Time is such a thing that it can change even the most hardest or toughest thing. But there is a limitation also. Time cannot change the thing that is offered as oblation in fire during a ritual and the thing that is donated to others by us. This was said by Karna(a character of Mahabharata who donated his divine earrings and arms to an other person) to his charioteer Shalya who prevented Karna to donate his things. By this verse we get to know the importance of donation to others and oblation in fire during a ritual.

5) Indeed happiness looks good after having experienced sorrow like a sight of a lamp in thick darkness.A man who becomes poor after happiness lives like a dead having a body.


It is a universal truth that 'happiness is indeed more appreciated when it comes after sorrow'. It is like a sight of a lamp in the thick darkness. In happiness man forgets all the sorrows of the past and even if he remembers them then they do not affect his present happiness. On the other hand if a man after experiencing happiness becomes poor then then he remembers his prosperity in the past. This memory adds to his sorrows. Due to good past but bad present he always feels like a dead. Thus we should always try to be balanced in happiness as well as in sorrow.

6) A good person engrossed in doing good to others does not bear enmity even at the time of destruction. A sandal tree when cut makes the edge of an axe fragrant.


A really good person is naturally inclined in doing good to others.He is selfless in the sense that his being good is not dependent on how others behave with him. This is supported by an example- A sandal wood tree makes the edge of an axe fragrant even when it is cut. A person who is good to those who are bent on destroying him is the rarest human being and goodness can never be arrested from him.

 These sayings have deeply affected my life and I am strongly trying to implement these in my life.
I hope you must have liked it.

Beauty Tips

Here are some beauty tips for our lovely beauties and for the future beauties(those after trying these tips).

Beauty Tips:

  • Instant face lift :
Wash your face with ice water or simply rub an ice cube with a tsp of honey on the face. Beat an egg white  until it peaks and brush onto your skin and let dry. You will feel the stretch in the skin. wash face with icy cold water.
  • Apply vinegar to your hair before a hair-wash to give your hair a nice shine.
  •  Eat strawberries to cleanse your skin. They are rich in salicylic and ellagic acid,which reduces dark spots and removes dead skin cells giving you a clear face.
  • For dull, oily and combination skin:   
Massage the skin with iced yogurt and sprinkle some sugar along with it. Now take orange halves and scrub gently until the granules melt. Wash the face with iced water and see the difference.
  • For tired eyes:  
Long hours at work, then shopping and getting things organized for the festive season can be tiring. I would suggest you make this wonderful eye wash which will make you feel refreshed instantly. Take iced spring water in a bowl and add a few drops of rose water, 2-3 drops of honey and immerse one eye into it. You can also open your eye a little and then close it. Throw away the liquid and make the same water for the other eye and repeat the process. After this, splash the eyes with cold mineral water. There maybe slight redness for some time but it will go away soon and your eyes will be refreshed soon.
  • Dealing with under eye bags and dark circles: 
Take used chamomile tea bags and store them in the freezer. Grate half a cucumber and massage around    eye area and then lie down with the tea bags on your eyes for 10 minutes.You will find an instant difference in the way your eyes look and feel.
  • Quick Hair Care:
Don't have the time to shampoo and blow dry your hair even though it is oily? Well, sweat not. Sprinkle talcum and amla powder onto your hair brush and overturn the hair over your head and brush from the nape of the neck to the tips.Now throw your hair back and voila you have bouncy oil free hair in minutes.

  OK so that was it.
