For most of us, 2020 wasn’t a good year. We’ve suffered in our ways. However, it gave us the biggest life lesson so far — the crucial need to devote your time to loved ones.
In a world where people are constantly running faster than the clock, relationships had taken a back step until 2020 dropped a bomb on us — a time bomb.
It took uncertainty to make us realize what we really should care about, that materialism won’t do any good.
Both work and…
If you're a new vegan or someone thinking of transitioning to one, my strategies will certainly make your life easier without spending a million dollars and constantly worrying about what to eat!
Vegetarianism or being a vegetarian essentially means that one consumes vegetables, fruits, grains, and dairy products. Vegetarians are the middle ones i.e. they aren’t hardcore plant eaters and certainly aren’t the sole consumers of meat or animals based produce.
Vegetarian diets are inclusive of all plant-based foods either mixed with dairy foods or made with a fat base of a single dairy source. A good example of this…
Imagine a 23-year-old, single, and lawyer by profession. What do you see? An independent career-oriented girl who is a sole decision-maker? Wrong.
Welcome to India.
I belong to a land of deeply rooted patriarchal culture. Decisions are made right from the conception of a fetus. Traditions are valued more than laws. My parents being a tad bit liberal allowed me to build a career— of their choice. My father is a lawyer, so I followed suit. I did everything a girl is expected to. The consequences of rebellion were harsh.
At 23, it's no different. I have little control over…
Right off the bat, I want to make it pretty clear that overall health means more than diet, exercise, and those fancy supplements popularized in advertisements.
There are some habits that most of us are guilty of. By eliminating them, you will be able to feel certain changes in your body that will not only help you keep fit but also boost your mental health.
Before you judge me by the title of the story, let me tell you two things:
Growing up as an Indian girl, my parents would often joke around the fact that no matter how educated a girl is, she has to serve her household before anything else.
When most people hear the word ‘Feminism’, they picture angry, topless, and man-hating women demanding rights. Those are the graphics portrayed by pop culture and mainstream media.
In reality, few people understand that Feminism is a movement that puts forward the sheer need for equality among the sexes.
The fact that Feminism is misunderstood by men as a mechanism to be dominated by women, creates an urgent need to spread awareness in order to unite them in the movement for gender equality.
Below are some modern works that are regarded as a source for a better understanding of the notion…
I’m a human mess. In fact, I check all the boxes of having poor mental health. As an introverted human my safe place lies within the four walls of my house. As soon as I step out of my comfort zone, I am accompanied by my toxic best friend — hello anxiety!
Most introverts like myself with traumatic past experiences tend to struggle with overthinking. Most people experience overthinking when their minds aren’t occupied. “Just stay busy”, they suggest. For me, it starts when there is a gap or waiting period in between something that is beyond my control.
If you're someone like me who constantly struggles with procrastination, self-doubt or even overthinking, author and motivational speaker Mel Robbin’s 5-second rule will come to your rescue!
This rule is pretty simple to follow through as it restricts your thought process if these thoughts seem to turn negative and make us feel less productive in any way. Often such toxic thoughts are formed in the brain to limit our productivity and destroy self-confidence.
“The 5 Second Rule is simple. If you have the instinct to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will…
While mindlessly scrolling through my phone in a coffee shop, I overheard a conversation between two teenage girls discussing the best vegan protein food for their cats. I shamelessly overheard the entire conversation but before I could recover from an absolute shock, they paid the bill and left.
Veganism started with the idea of creating a positive impact on the planet. However, in recent times vegans have been forcing their pets to follow the same. Right off the bat, I want to get it out there that I'm not generalizing vegans. …
