Do You Need New Year's Resolutions That You Can Actually Keep?

New Year's Resolutions

Hello! This is again that time of the year when we spend all our time deciding what to do next year? or what to start new this new year? or what should be our new year goals? We get so excited that we start making such lists of all imaginary or impossible goals that we end up neglecting just after 2 or 3 months of the new year.

Why can't we keep New Year's resolutions?

Following are some of the reasons behind our failure to stick to our yearly resolutions or goals:

  • We have set unrealistic goals.
  • The goals are not inspiring.
  • There is no reminder to us about our goals.
  • The goals are copied from others or taken as such goals that are trending.
  • The goals do not match our interests our aim or our nature.
  • Some of the goals need some time to complete which may be more than a year.

Tie or Untie Hair: The Emotional Difference

Tie or Untie Hair: The Emotional Difference
Ok, this may seem a little bit of a weird thing to you. But give it a chance. Maybe you also feel relatable.

This evening I was busy doing my work on the laptop, and then suddenly I realized that I had untied my hair and was playing with it unknowingly. I thought why I did do this. I mean what is the difference between tied hair and untied or open hair. So these were my observations:

I used to tie my hair:

  • When it is hot like in summer (Obviously).
  • When I need to focus.
  • When I am doing something in which my body is moving, and I have to maintain my eyesight clear.

Should Parents be Happy Without Us?

Should Parents be Happy Without Us?

 Hey! A few days back, it was my parent's wedding anniversary. It was not the first time when we were not together. They actually don't celebrate much. But they try to do at least one thing to make the other person feel special. We, as kids, used to suggest them better gift options.

All You Need to Know about Bullet Journal: A Beginner's Guide

All You Need to Know about Bullet Journal:  A Beginner's Guide is all about making your life easy through journaling. Let us understand what journaling is through this video:

One such journaling tool is Bullet Journal i.e. BuJo.

What is a Bullet Journal?

There are many definitions available. The one which I liked the most is:

" Analog Tool to Manage your Digital World"

Let me make things simple for you. A journal is basically a diary or notebook which we use to jot down stuff or to record something. And 'bullets' are usually symbols or something which are usually used to write important points. So, by combining these two definitions:

"A Bullet journal is a Record of some Important points of your Life."

All You Need to Know about Bullet Journal:  A Beginner s' guide
A Bullet Journal is your own personal diary which can be treated as a combination of several other types of journals, like art journal, planner, gratitude journal, doodle journal, fitness journal, and many more.

54321 Technique to deal with Anxiety

54321 Technique to deal with Anxiety
Despite being confident every time, there are some scenarios where we lose our confidence and a train of unnecessary thoughts starts running at a lightning speed. This anxiety can lead to many setbacks and insecurities in our life. To deal with it, we need some grounding tool that grounds us in our safe zone. Ok, now you will be thinking about what is a safe zone. The safe zone is present

While that train of thoughts makes us go in either past or future, we forget that we are in present and start panicking as a response to the situation which either has arrived in the past or is yet to come. This clearly means that at present you are not in that vulnerable situation or we can say that we are in our safe zone. And we can reduce the impact of past situations or prevent future ones by focusing on our present. 

So here we have one of the famous grounding tools that will help you with anxiety or any other such issue:

54321 Grounding Technique

So in this technique, first try to take 2-3 deep breaths and then acknowledge:
  • 5 things which you see around. It may be a door, window, paper, fan, or anything.
