Is everyone in Diwali mode ? Diwali is a Festival of Lights so we should lighten ourselves. Turn the light on. Right ? Hosted a Diwali dhamaka last night with my yoga friends. Theme was explore another state , culture different from your home state. In India we have so many cultural varieties. Each state has difficulty dresses, food etc. Unity in diversity.
Dhamaka turned out real Dhamaka . We had Kashmir, Marathi , Punjabi, Gujarati, angel also descended. We danced on “bumro bumro ” song , did Bhangra , garba what not. Everyone had fun.
I did Bengal and wore Bengali style saree. Made shukto, cholar dal, bhap doi. We did hula huli.
We had fun while learning new things , explored new unknown territory . It was a thought that everyone picked up on and made into fun filled evening.
Also I did yoga demo for aches and pain at my company’s Diwali festival. So that was good karma along with my own learning. Few ppl from audience tried movements since they were so simple. Anything we do is first our own learning. Am learning to go on stage , do a demo , speak while am doing it. For me , it’s an opportunity that came my way and so I just do it . Many times I see ppl don’t grab opportunities that comes their way and let it go saying not now, or too busy what not. Anyone who wants to do things, live life there’s so much happening everywhere.
Happy Diwali !
My teacher says we should put our feet picture on fb profile since they take us places and so treat them well. Treating them well doesn’t mean just getting pedicure.
Check your toes, see how they look. Do a forward bend on your toes and see how they all respond. For more info, you can check yoga book links I had posted earlier .
What will cause more problem pimple on a face or feet? Think abt it. Check also bottom of your feet and see where you put more pressure , what color is it. Wearing wrong shoes messes up feet too.
First of all, we all gonna lose everything at some point , right ? So the only option is use it while we have it . That applies to everything money, time, mind , body, ppl … whatever that we can’t live without.
So now we have a option to use it while we have it. Let’s talk abt few:
- As we age, seems ppl don’t want to use brain anymore.It’s important we do some brain exercises too. Learning new things is important. When I say new , it should be something that challenges your brain and so will make new connections in brain.
- Eyes, ears . Surprised? Well, I notice ppl don’t see things well. Someone once said her 3 rd eye was open. When one is not able to see with 2 eyes , forget abt 3rd eye. Ears… do you listen ? We all have observed people who just don’t listen. If I have to keep repeating same thing over and over again to someone, what does that mean? Eventually they start losing ability to listen. And my lesson is not to say anything.
- Money – sensitive subject .lol … all I will say spend when, where it’s needed and just not hoard it . Money is also just a form of energy. If there’s a money crunch all the time in your life then try laxmi mantra for 40 days.
- Time – it really annoys me when ppl say they don’t have time. Yes there are ppl who truely are busy living their life. Others just behave like they are president of some country or running the universe. Make time for life and life will be so much rewarding.
Hope you got some ideas and know what you need to use and what to lose.
Spend sometime everyday doing things you enjoy.
There will be some stories of food coming here from another continent. So stay tuned…
At my work, today our group got some crayons in mail from company and email with some pictures that we can print and color. It was called coloring for adults and it helps with depression, improves concentration. I totally agree.
It helps you to focus and when you are coloring you forget everything else including food , if you are going through challenges in life or too much going into your head, then it will help clear your head. If you are so much of a logic person, then it will help to activate artistic side.
So if you looked at the picture, you might be wondering why am I coloring giraffe blue? Think of it this way: I am given a picture and set of creyons to color. Now it’s upto me how I color it. Who said I have to color it brown only? Think of life the same way. You have a picture and set of colors . These are the only things you are given but you can play with them any way you like.Color your life the way you like. Open your mind . It doesn’t need to be like anyone else ‘s. Your life , your colors, your picture.
If you have your kids’ color book , try it. Or get one for yourself . There are some yantra books to color too.
When you find something good , what do you do? You want to share with ppl around you , right? It comes naturally. I went on a trail to walk in lunch time at work, then it occurred to me that I should show this trail to whole team. So I took the picture of trail and as soon as I got back to my cube, I sent an invite to the team for the walk. Most of the team accepted immediately.
Today was the day when we walked in lunch time for an hr. And most of the team showed up excited including mgr. Everyone had fun, liked trail and thought it was a wonderful idea.
If you enjoy taking a walk at work or know who goes for a walk , then join them or take others too .We sit all day long so it’s good to walk in lunch time. Little walks goes a long way. Am sure everyone has heard “walking is the best exercise “.
Enjoy Walking , strolling around !
