8 Simplest habits to stay happy in life

Who doesn’t long for contentment & happiness? Who doesn’t long for twists?

We all do, no? But the coincident is we all go wrong mostly due to one reason – i.e.- We take happiness as a mandatory gift that needs to be gifted by others compulsarily.

Satisfaction is an inside work, and like anything more, requires a little reasonable level of investment.

However, through basic everyday propensities, we can Make satisfaction and train our brains to be in a mindset of bliss and harmony more regularly!

All in all, truly, who doesn’t yearn for somewhat more harmony and happiness in the day?

In the grown-up universe of perpetually obligations, I’m consistently keeping watch!

Also, while these will immediately support your state of mind and help you have an improved outlook on your day, the genuine monstrous effect accompanies doing them over the long haul.

I personally practice these 8 points that keeps me happy & contented all the hours.

1. Be grateful

Are we paying attention to the right things? Everything is about perspective.

Gratitude has been dubbed the “happy pill” because studies have shown that it increases feelings of well-being.

We all have bad days, and this has the greatest impact when we need a mental shift. I instantly feel better and can regroup when I can think of a blessing during the day and realize how ridiculously blessed I am. Do you have the same sensation?

In addition, Tony Robbins points out that it is difficult to be sincerely grateful and unhappy, nervous, or furious at the same time.

Start reflecting on all the positive aspects of your life if you are experiencing any of those feelings. even if your only ideas are obvious or basic ones!

I pick three items and three moments each morning and evening to be grateful for, but you can design this anyway you like !

2. Practice Self Care

A cup that is empty cannot be poured from! Consider the last time you experienced stress. Overwhelmed. Exhausted. You weren’t all that happy, I’m prepared to bet. And for some of us, that occurs constantly!

Make sure that every day, your health comes first. You ought to be buoyant, content, and prepared to take on the world!

Here are only a few suggestions!

Honor Yourself

Start out easy! Wear clothing that gives you confidence and a positive body image. Put on a little makeup in the mornings and try to look your best. It seriously influences your attitude toward the day and your degree of confidence!

Exercise

Move that body to reduce stress, improve sleep, and boost happiness in general. Exercise is one of the MOST crucial things you can do for happiness, according to research.

Spend alone time to recharge

Every individual should schedule alone time every day. Whatever the case may be. Get up early if necessary, but make it happen!

3. Get pumped up

There are many people I know who enjoy music more than I do. Darn it, I just forget to turn it on. But when do I? My mood has already improved! Even if it occurs frequently, the difference generally astounds me. Do you also observe it?

There is a reason, of course! According to research, music makes us happier by releasing dopamine.

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of including music in daily life because it is one of the routines that produces enjoyment with the least amount of effort.

4. Try to be your healthy version

When I’m unwell, I feel awful (and still have to take care of everyone). When I consume fried food, I feel disgusting. And I’m the world’s biggest grump when I don’t get enough sleep.

Can I consistently avoid these problems? No.

But when your body isn’t in tip-top shape and you last felt energetic on Tuesday, it’s tough to be truly happy. Therefore, we must take action and be proactive.

Consume a lot of fruits and veggies.


Since I’ve struggled with this ever since my last pregnancy, I started my day with a smoothie. I’m now focusing on eating a salad every day for lunch. Include as many salads, smoothies, and side vegetables as you can! Remove that garbage!

Consistently moving our bodies


See how crucial it is to exercise! It appears twice in this piece! Set a daily goal of 30 minutes of MOVE. It doesn’t matter whether you walk, run, or do yoga!

Prioritize sleep

I occasionally have to decline late-night activities since I am aware of the effects that lack of sleep has on me.

5. Control your spending

How we manage our finances has a significant influence on how we live. One of the main sources of stress for people is money (or a lack thereof). And it causes MASSIVE friction within relationships. The fact is that it needn’t, though.

6. Build Relationships

Spending more time with others makes people happier. Numerous studies have demonstrated this.

Therefore, be sure to give at least one connection some priority each day. Moreover, have in-depth discussions. Make yourself vulnerable and talk about the important issues. Get to the good stuff, because the quantity of honest discourse you engage in has a beneficial impact on happiness.

7. Meditate often

Because the thought of a mom having some quiet time is such a novel concept, I find meditation to be very fascinating.

However, the research on this is OVERWHELMING. Better pain tolerance, less anxiety and despair, and improved stress resilience are all benefits of meditation. Your brain is ACTUALLY changed by it!

Start with meditation if you want more tranquilly and contentment in your life. Take 5–20 minutes off to focus only on breathing. When you take a moment to notice how many thoughts are circling in your head, you’ll be surprised.

If you’ve ever wanted to work on the unfavourable things you tell yourself, meditation has helped me become much more aware. I can train myself to think differently!

8. Uplift your environment

Not to mention, if you live in a bad atmosphere, you will live and breathe that. Whether you like it or not, you will degrade both yourself and others.

So, give it some thought and make sure you are living your day to the fullest! Are there positive people, media, and words in your immediate environment?

Start by surrounding yourself with more intimate and motivating images and beginning each day with a motivational read. Small changes have a bigger impact than we realize!

9 Action Steps to start organizing your life

How to get your life together and start getting organized?

Is your pieces of thoughts & life in place? or is it pretty messed up? If you’re reading this post, then chances are that you want to get yourself together and get organized. If it’s so, and you want to know how to begin organizing your life, then you have clicked the right link.

In this post, I share exactly how you can start to organize your life even if you’re a total beginner to all things organizing.

In this distracting era, if you’re not intentional with your time, life can soon feel pretty messy and all over the place. 

I have divided this into three parts:

  1. How to begin with organizing your life
  2. The actual physical act of organizing and
  3. How to stay organized

How to start organizing your life?

1. Pen down what you want to begin organizing

Start observing the areas of life that you feel is messy or unorganized. It could be in the form of any physical place or in the form of your thoughts.

Try to visualize them & list them down on a piece of paper or a diary might help.

Pro tip : Don’t keep it inside your phone.

Before you actually start organizing, understand what is going on in your head and what needs to get organized.

This can be as simple like, ‘I need to organize my……’

  • Room
  • thoughts
  • files
  • Inbox
  • Phone
  • Workspace
  • Wardrobe
  • Purse
  • Finances

2. Set a schedule to organize your life

We get overwhelmed and are reluctant to even start getting our life back together because we have this false notion of the enormity of the task in our mental image.

Even the thought of organizing our life feels like a big difficult thing in our head, but when we write it down and see it on paper, I assure you that it’s actually not.

Once you have put your mind on paper, this false notion of it being enormous immediately vanishes and feels doable and achievable.

Now the other thing is that you don’t have to organize your life in one go. But you need to set up a schedule for it.

For example, like this:

How to set a schedule to start organizing your life

Set your own schedule.

Estimate how much time it might take for you to get the area organized. You can give it a day, a two or even a week if that’s the amount of time you need.

Then as you start and finish one, tick those boxes off one by one.

The actual physical act of organizing your life

3. Declutter

Declutter to organize your life

Next comes the actual physical act of organizing. Once you go according to your schedule and pick the area to organize, you need to start with decluttering.

Organizing cannot happen without decluttering.

Indeed one could say that the actual organizing consists of only two things:

  • Decluttering what you don’t need
  • Having a home for the all things you do need.

If it’s your room you’ve picked up to organize and you think the room is too big and too messy to start with, then pick one corner of the room. It can be the corner where your workspace is and you can start with your workspace.

Declutter all the unessential and keep what’s not in place in its right place.

I always keep my workspace clean and tidy. It motivates me to work better and have focus.

Anyway, as you’re decluttering, chances are that you won’t know whether to throw or to keep. We tend to attach to too many things.

So if you get stuck with that, simply ask, ‘Did you use it in the past week or past month?’. If no, then you most probably won’t ever use it.

After you’re done, tick it off from your list and pat yourself for the work you did.

4. Have a home for everything

How to start getting organized

There was a time when if someone asked me where the stapler is, or where the scissor is or where a book is, I would go on and on searching and still wouldn’t find it.

It still happens for some of the things, and I’m trying to get better at it too. But for the most of the things that I actually use, I now have a home for everything.

For this, three things are essential:

  • decluttering
  • Keeping the things in its right home right after using it. We tend to say ‘Not now’, but it actually takes just 2 minutes or less if we do it right away.
  • Having less stuff

I had my diary and other stationery all over my table and because my table is already full with my other diary and books, so I keep my stationery and my journal in this box.

For my blog, I have kept its home in the app called Notion which I use to organize and plan all of my blog post topics.

For all the passwords that I have, I have kept a list for it in my diary and also on my phone.

Having a home for everything makes things so much easier.

How to stay organized

5. Have a daily routine to organize your life

How to start getting organized

If you want to be an organized person, then having a daily routine is a must, and more so, a morning routine.

Having a morning routine is the beginning of organized life. When I first decided to organize my life and get my life together, I first decluttered my messy room and then slowly worked on creating my morning routine.

Having a morning routine brought back things in order and focus. It helped me eventually form my daily routine.

Intentionally creating a daily routine adds structure and focus. It is a must if you want to organize your life.

  • P.S here is my morning routine before 8 am
  • How to create a simple daily routine and stick to it
  • How to keep up with a morning routine

6. Make lists to get yourself organized

Lists to make to get organized

Have a notebook where you keep lists. Writing down lists is by far the most super helpful method to remain organized.

Here are some of the lists I have:

  • List of books I want to read
  • List of books I have read this year
  • List of pending things to do
  • List of my blog related passwords
  • List of my college work related passwords
  • List of my goals till 2030
  • List of my goals for the next three months
  • List of courses I want to take to up level my blogging skill
  • List of my blog posts for each category in my blog
  • List of the things I want to buy

Whenever you feel that something needs your attention and focus, make lists. If you think you’ll forget something, make lists. Keeping lists will make sure that you always remain organized.

7. Follow the 2 minute rule

The 2 minute rule is simple – If it will take less than 2 minutes, do it immediately.

This really applies to putting things right back to where it belongs right after using it. So many times we end up just putting it off for no reason and then it keeps piling up.

Immediately doing things (even if it takes 10-20 minutes at most) saves so much time and clutter!

8. Schedule or delegate the tasks that needs to get done

For every task that doesn’t get done immediately, write it down in your ‘List of things to get done’.

Then schedule for when you will get it done. And if it’s not you who needs to get it done, delegate it to someone else.

9. Use sticky notes

Use sticky notes to always be organized

There are so many apps and digital tools for productivity, but I still like pen and paper and sticky notes!

I tried going digital, but because of the fact that I didn’t actually see my to-do lists in physical form, in front of my eyes what was in my head or what needs to get done, I had a hard time doing it.

In front of my desk on my wall, I have a sticky note for my daily routine where I have put out time blocks for the things I want to do in my day.

When things come up, I put out a sticky note for the to-dos that need to get done in the day.

Sticky notes work wonders when it comes to organizing your life.

So these are the ways you can organize your life. To sum it up once again:

  1. Write down what you want to begin organizing
  2. Set a schedule to organize your life
  3. Declutter
  4. Have a home for everything
  5. Have a daily routine
  6. Keep lists to keep yourself organized
  7. Follow the 2 minute rule
  8. Schedule or delegate tasks that needs to get done
  9. Use sticky notes

Hope you have fun organizing your life!

Hope you have fun taking your power back! <3

3 Mistakes No One will Tell You about Your Relationship

Relationships can be the best or the worst part of your life depending upon the vision you are perceiving it. It is relationships that define the kind of a person you are or you’re not.

I am coming at this topic with a freaking six years experience dating with lowest lows & highest highs. Had I known these facts earlier, I would have developed a majestic personality 6 years back itself. Learn from my very mistakes & keep your charisma alive.

Do not Raincheck your Self-respect.

  1. Are you not happy with the reverts you’re getting from your relationship?
  2. Are all your efforts going into vain?
  3. Ae you not being celebrated by the people you love?

You’re not too late to read & understand one of the major mistakes you’re doing since years or months. Respecting your own self & putting your opinions (right or wrong) in front of the person you love adds a lot of value & accentuate your personality in a lot ways.

People often forgot to put their views in the fear of losing the person they love, in the fear of getting judged, in the fear of getting misunderstood. Do not raincheck your self respect in the fear of the above mentioned stuffs.

If you really want to know the nature of a person, you have to put forward your thoughts, your opinions in order to understand the POV (Point of View) – Positive or Negative from the corresponding person & that will decide your stay in that particular relationship.

Do not take update of the other person, all the time.

Sounds strange in the first place right? however in the name of showing love & concern, knowingly, unknowingly we usually keep tracking our loved ones 24*7. Knocking people time dilutes your own personality & helps the corresponding person take you for granted. Certain experiences of mine suggests me that the more you invest in yourself rather than investing in others, the more, people, will feel the void of your absence in their lives. Respect the relationship, embrace the bonding, developing yourself as an self sufficient individual simultaneously & you’ll feel the lost romance.

Do not try to change the other person as per your wish.

In every relationships, one need to understand & acknowledge that they are unique individuals. We often drawn to people opposite to our traits & after a while with them we feel so tempted to mold them according to our assumptions of perfection. this is indirectly snatching the freedom of your loved ones. In certain cases, we should remind ourselves that a person breathe freely where he or she is allowed to breathe freely. Learn to embrace the person as he or she is. Accompany them to being a better version of themselves & not a version of you. Fight to give them the wing beneath their wings & feel the difference.

Practice the mentioned things & comment down the results.

How to Develop your Personality

In this digitally driven world where trends are dominating over authenticity, personal development has taken a back Seat.

We have developed the hunger for taking limelight via copying others.

Personal development is a phrase that refers to activities designed to improve talents, potential, employability, and even wealth. Any time you are consciously making an effort to improve yourself, you are participating in personal development.

For example- You have come here reading this to build yourself right? in the contrary if you don’t scroll down then somewhere your mind is diverted into other things. Your attention needs to be focused, and for that your learning factor should be > than your excuse factor !

Self-improvement helps enhance strengths, improve mental health, and even heal relationships.

Some ways of self-improvement include simple tasks such as unfollowing spectators from social media handles, reading a book, trying something new. Challenge yourself regularly.

Broadly, there are five areas of Personal Development.

To initiate with the above five, the vision to change yourself should be your primary lookout. Changing yourself starts with building self confidence. Self Confidence is like adding the cherry on the baked cake !

To comprehend the Prime Brick to assure personal development, self-confidence deserves to be at the beginning. Below are listed 3 hacks for you to gain self-confidence. 

Talk to Yourself right in front of a mirror

Your Confidence Should be Your Foremost Accessory. Wear it or get Underdressed

Develop a Spiritual Lookout to Every Situation

Yes, it might sounds dramatic but you know this works. Spirituality gives a sense of peace, resilience and balance among the physical, emotional, and social aspects of our lives. We should celebrate the sacred connection within our mind, body, and soul.

Prayers exudes relaxation response, along with feelings of hope, gratitude, and compassion. People who are rooted in the belief that there is a unforeseen supreme power that has some level of influence over our life. This belief can provide a sense of comfort and support in difficult times. So it is advised to be spiritually responsive. Hear the unheard. Marry the almighty’s plan.

Nothing can break a person who have tied the knots with Spirituality

– Tista

Exude a Deaf Attitude at the Societal Judgements

The third key to building Self-confidence is to exude a deaf attitude towards societal judgments. We all are indeed being judged at some or the other phases of life. Human beings are open to judgments, no? however allowing the judgements to percolate our mind is none other than, us, inviting those toxic guests. We should train ourselves in such a way that our mind responds those judgements lightly not rebelliously.

The fear of judgements can affect all the aspects of our life, for ex- friendships, family, relationships, & certainly in the workplace too. It can take us miles away from our dreams & goals.

Three tried & tested methods to Overcome Judgements.

  • Take Notice of your Inner Voice – We often overlook our self instincts, our self guts & walk down the roads paved by others.

Affirm today that “I’m my biggest judge”. Do whatever you think yields the best from you regardless of others opinions. Practice cropping negative people not only from photographs but also from your Social media & surroundings. Refrain yourself from taking updates. Take the power to control your thoughts & actions.

  • Acknowledge your strengths – People often hesitate to show up their strengths & talents in the fear of someone commenting them ” Show off chick”. learn to introspect yourself & make yourself aware of the things you are great at. Accept your shortcomings. Be so proud of your attributes so that there shouldn’t be any space for confusion. Absorb the positivity from the talents you have, because when you absorb positivity, you radiate the same.
  • Give your Wellbeing the first priority– Exerting a nature of investing yourself in setting a new hobby, taking a new diet plan, learning a new skill leads to Personal Development.

And then I realized, I’ve crossed that threshold of strength, when I saw myself, being nice to people TIMELESSLY.
