I have seen so many cases when a person’s health goes downhill and they are completely ignorant towards it. Now this happens not because they are deliberately doing it but because they simply are already so preoccupied to actually pay attention to such things. The values nowadays have changed and health has gone down the priority list with money coming up towards the top. We are losing our health while chasing money but does this have to be a trade off? Well, the ones who have it all figured out and are leading balanced lives beg to differ and claim that in this regard, you can very much have it all.
There might be many of us, like me, who want to do something but often find themselves needing a push or just a helping hand from someone who can not only just motivate but also has some pragmatic knowledge and preferably some experience. The worst experiences that I have had to hear from some loved ones are when not paying attention to their health landed them in fatal situations. One of my uncles ignored pain in left side of his body for several days and ended up on a hospital bed because of his carelessness.
We are a fun sized as well as fun loving family. With my hubby and two kids, we love having fun as a family every moment that we can get. Both I and my hubby are complete extroverts and since we met as college students. In fact we met during multiple outdoor competitions. I believe we have passed on the fun genes to our kids too since both of them excel not just in academics but are also good at all the extra-curricular activities that they participate in at school. Now the fun during the holiday season just doubles.
Every year my family gets all dressed up for Halloween.
It is in fact the favourite holiday of all of us. We like getting creative with our choices of costumes and often end up clicking a lot of photographs. This gave an excellent idea to start putting together family portrait ideas that we can all use down the years. Not only will this create a memory lane for us but as a collection, it can prove helpful to all our family and friends. If done in an orderly manner, we can also make good use of this collection year after year so that the family time never gets boring.
The other day when my son asked me about which is the best shampoo for oily hair according to me, my husband was surprised. He was surprised because he had never even thought of his hair type in the forty years that he has lived so far and here was his boy asking this wonderful question. I am not surprised at all with his behavior. The times have changed now and the males are equally conscious of how they look and how to take care of them as are the women in their lives. Some might call it a metrosexual lifestyle, but I think there is something in between the metrosexual and the rugged when it comes to men.
My son is not all about grooming himself physically all the time but he does pay a tad bit more attention to his outward look than his dad. He is more aware and makes conscious choices on a small scale that make a lot of difference to how he presents himself to his peer group and to the society in general. This has become a norm nowadays and I personally am all for it. A healthy and positive attitude fueled by looking great at all times is much needed.
Magnets are usually a favorite of all the boy students in my class at the junior most classes. The day of introduction of a magnet to them when I narrate and show them all the properties of a magnet is the one which they remember year after year. The experience does not vary much with every batch and I see the boys carrying around magnet and checking its properties most practically in the playground or else where ay home once they have learned how it works. I observed the fascination and somehow I registered it in my mind at some level.
All this observation stored in the form of memory came back to me when I was designing my toddler boy’s room. I could envisage him having a great time with magnets once he grew up a bit. This seemed like a perfect time to plan for a gift in future. I decided to use magnetic paint in his room so that he could grown up and discover the fabulous gift of a magnetic wall in his room. I could see his eyes open in amazement and wonder as he discovered that he had had it for years but discovered it just now.
If you are anything like me then you will understand what a challenge feels like. I like to challenge myself almost in every aspect of my life and believe me when it comes to eating or food, tying new stuff is hardly a challenge although it is thought to be. The real challenge is eating right when you have limited options. All my life, I have been inspired by the sheer determination of people who have opted for a vegan lifestyle. It is one of the most difficult decisions that you can make in a lifetime, especially if you plan on sticking to it.
There are many known celebrity figures too who claim to be vegans. I have been inspired but also felt a little perplexed whenever I sat down to think about what exactly they ate. There are so many no-no substances that you can say yes to a few things to eat. Checking every dish for exclusion of no dairy products at all is a very hard task after all. I have recently undertaken this challenge to be vegan for at least as long as I can be. The only relief that I have discovered so far is quinoa salad. It is hands down the winner among all the options that I have as a vegan.
The Asian culture and other cultures have vastly adopted many nuances of each other; especially the ones that they thought will contribute towards the development of their respective cultures. The youth was in early times dependent on their families until they attained the age of 18 when they were supposed to become financially responsible for their own self. Influenced by western culture mostly, now even the other cultures are inspiring their young ones to realize and respect the value of money.
Whether the child belongs to an affluent family or a middle class one, getting a job at young age so that you can at least provide for yourself is a highly essential exercise that can lead to exceptional mental growth in the young mind. The jobs for 16 year olds are designed in such a manner that the individual can learn much more and contribute to the best of their ability. If you join a company or an organization at this age, you will find yourself mostly shadowing a mentor who is a mixture of being your manager as well as professional guardian. If you take up an informal role like working as an assistant in personal tasks or tasks like household chores, you will find that even through familiar work, you can learn a lot of new skills.
The reason that I can think of why Mickey and Minnie mouse are so loved all over the world is because as a couple they represent some of the best relationships and bonds that we can form with others. They are best of friends, the best husband and wife and they have lots of fun together. They learn from each other and help each other. I think it is admirable that children like these cartoons because on the face although they seem having fun and laughing all the time but these qualities are also being passed on to the children who are watching.
Kids learn the most and best by imitating. They might do the innocent naughty stuff that these cartoon characters do but I also find it adorable when my kids draw me a Minnie mouse card and write you are the best mommy ever on it. I can see and observe every day the little positive changes that these cartoons bring into my children’s behavior towards others. Never in a hundred years would I want them to not be as close to these cartoons as they want to be. In fact I have started looking into Minnie mouse party ideas for planning my own wedding anniversary this year.
We, the working professionals, are always on the lookout to save our time nowadays. The monetary value of time is what has become very significant in our lives. One of the most common activities that we spend time on in our routine lives is cooking. After all food is the necessity of our lives as humans. Many of us still like to cook in the comfort and sanctity of our homes even if we are struggling with busy working schedules. Like all other areas of our lives, we love to cook but we have to be aware of the time limits that have become an acceptable part of our life due to most of our time of the day that we are awake, around 10-12 hours spent in an office or our work place.
We cannot cook at leisure and we cannot cook everyday. We can cook a limited number of meals. One of the best options in such situation is what is commonly known as casserole food. Corn casserole is one such dish that tastes amazing when it is fresh. Also, it is healthy (as much as you want it to be) and can be stored for a few days at least. The best thing is that it takes less time to cook in comparison to the utility that it provides.
