5 New Year resolutions that everyone can make

Resolutions written in a paper
Resolutions

So let’s see what are the five simple resolution ideas that everyone can make 🙂

1.Start doing something you love

 “When you start doing what you love to do, you will never work another day”. Starting a blog was one of my biggest dreams and I was thinking it for almost 7 months. I searched a lot of websites because I’m not a pro and there is a lot to learn. I started it by the end of December and I felt it like one of my biggest accomplishment 🙂

2.Traveling

 Traveling will give you a lifetime full of memories, understanding different cultures, knowing about their cuisines and lot more. This year I wanted to Travel to India. Traveling to India is not a very hard thing for me because I’m an Indian and I can travel to my country anytime I want, but there was a lot of restrictions from both the financial point of view and all those traveling hassles.It’s almost a 24-hour journey from the USA to INDIA. But finally, I did it.

3.Accomplish one thing you fear the most

 Do one thing you fear the most like bungee jumping, paragliding or simple things like getting a tattoo. Getting a nose pin was one of the hardest decision I ever made. Because while I was growing up I always wanted to look like boys and I don’t like getting my ear’s pierced or getting my nose pierced and even my father didn’t like the idea of piercing my ear and I finally pierced my ear when I was 10. I came to that decision when everybody in my school started calling me a boy, even though I secretly want to look like a boy at that age, I partially don’t like the idea of looking like boys because I had a huge crush on earrings of other girls. And the end story I got a nose pin on Jan 6, 2017. Getting a tattoo is also one thing on my wish list.

4.Reading every day

 Reading every day. It sounds easy but it’s very hard to keep up a routine. Start from 5 pages weekly and increase the pages.

5.Writing gratitude journal daily

 Just like I said in my earlier post, giving gratitude is a simple thing we can do in an everyday life. So far so good. I’m writing the gratitude journal for the past 3 months and I want to continue it. It makes me feel really good with what I have, rather than worrying about what I don’t have 🙂

7 things we can do for a quality life

1.Gratitude

Giving gratitude is a simple thing we can do on an everyday life . We are lucky if you have a roof above our head. If we are writing some thing positive it will give us a positive attitude towards life . You don’t have to buy any expensive journal for this you can even write it in a plane sheet of paper. If you want to make it a bit more fancy you will find millions of website to take printout of gratitude journal for free.

2.Reading

Reading something inspirational everyday can give us a positive way of thinking even if we are down. THE WILLPOWER INSTINCT by Kelly McGonigal is a very good book that will give you simple explanations for lot of things and how to get will power to do something.

3.Meditation and Yoga

The benefits of yoga and meditation are endless. It will give you deep relaxation both mentally and physically. A five-minute body muscle relaxation exercise will help you to have a peaceful sleep.Do both meditation and yoga daily, make it as a routine.

My favorite book for yoga  is LIGHT ON LIFE by B.K.S Iyengar, though the book is partly written for yoga teachers ,everyone can benefit from this book .

Exercise:

Exercise daily, even if it is for five or 10 minutes it will create a positive change in our brain without our knowing.

4.Minimalism

Throw away those unwanted things which we no longer needed or using.Buy only those things which we are sure we are going to use it for a longtime. It will help our mind to declutter.

5.Avoiding Junk Foods

Eat healthy for at least  3 or 4 days in a week and make it as a routine. Healthy foods definitely includes home cooked foods.

6.Planner

Planning a day ahead has shown proven benefits to declutter our brain in many ways.

7.Love yourself

The  most important thing is loving yourself, how can someone lead a positive life if you are not taking care of yourself both mentally and physically. So start loving yourself 🙂

Traditional Indian Ginger Tea

Generally I’m not a big fan of all these complex cooking recipes. I just love simple but clean and delicious recipes which we can make in minutes. whether it’s desserts or main course, I love it.

Who doesn’t love tea? even if its cold or hot most of us love tea.I still remember the tea I once drank in Mumbai and the taste of it is still in my mouth.  The moment I reached back home I wanted to try that  tea. I experimented with a few little ingredients and it turned out pretty well, just try it and you will love it. Remember, it is not a very complex kind of recipe and it’s not a very big thing in India to  make  tea which even a five year old knows how to make it.

Ginger tea have lot of benefits.A cup of ginger tea can help improves our digestion.Drinking a cup of ginger tea can help prevent the nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness. If you are a vegan you can try it without adding milk.

Just imagine drinking this tea when it’s raining outside 🙂 .

Ingredients :

  1. Tea powder-2 tablespoon or according to taste
  2. Ginger-2 inch
  3. Milk-1 cup
  4. Water-1 cup
  5. Jaggery-according to your taste

Method:

Boil the water and put the crushed ginger and jaggery in to it and cover with a lid.  When it boils, put tea powder and let it boil for few seconds and switch of the flame. In another tumbler boil milk. At the end just filter the tea and mix it well with the milk. If you want to make it a bit more fun, you can try to pour the tea like the Chaiwala’s do in India :-).
