Impact of Landmark Worldwide on Parents and kids Relationships

Hello everyone,

Hope you are doing well!

This is probably my last blog post of the year 2019 and the one I am most excited about to share with you. It's about our kids and the way we raise our kids.

While thinking of all the ways to make our kids happy, we shower them with immense love, attention, outings, gifts, toys, the best of facilities and a lot more. However, take a moment and consider what could be the best ever gift for your child?

What is the best gift for your child?

Is it the fancy, expensive toy on the nearby toy store, a new animated movie your kid has been waiting for, an outing with family, his favorite pizza or bicycle that he wants? Of course, these things are important and add to the quality of life you want to provide to your child. But, what is that one thing that will remain forever with him and will continue to inspire him, fill him with love and happiness? It can't be toys, expensive gifts or accessories that you bought for him. All these have a limited time…

Self-Growth of Parents - Is it required?

Hello fellow Parents,

Hope you are having a good time while raising kids!

In my previous post, I had shared about the importance of aliveness while parenting and bringing aliveness in relationships through various ways. One major aspect that was part of my previous blog was Self growth. Is it required or not, while you are totally occupied and absorbed in parenting your kids?

Self growth or personal growth includes attaining understanding about yourself, your strengths and weakness and the ways in which you try achieve your full potential. It also includes- 
-acquiring new skills and habits, 
-letting go of such habits or thought process that dis-empower you or adversely influence your effectiveness
- embracing new way of life that invites happiness and abundance for you and people that matter to you.

Bringing Aliveness in Parenting and Relationships


In my last post, I shared about feeling aliveness and its impact on you and on the people you care for. Let us take it a level deeper and discover what can make you and me feel alive. How we can include aliveness in our everyday relationships as well as parenting.

We already know absence of aliveness brings a certain way of living that is deprived of enthusiasm, spirit and connection with our present. On the other hand, bringing aliveness can create a whole new world of happiness, hope, high spirits and connection with present day. So, what all can help us to feel alive and live our life fully?

Here are certain important aspects which I consider bring forth ALIVENESS-

Physical and mental well-being

Regular workouts, walk, running, playing sports or yoga create good health and positive body image. In addition, regular physical workout of any nature enhances stamina, strength and flexibility. This, in turn, gives you the confidence to perform tasks that you love without hindrance and pro…

Importance of Creating Aliveness while Parenting

Hello everyone, 
Lately, I have been working on the possibility of creating aliveness in everyday life. In younger times, we engaged in creativity, laugh, tease, play, dance and act in much more ways that created lively atmosphere in our life. However, as we grow older, responsibility, accountability, tight schedules, etc., etc., take over our once lively persona. 

Is absence of aliveness bad?
It is though it is not apparent to us. The absence of aliveness deprives us of the element of  feeling enthusiasm and hope at times. Emotions of stress, pain, self-doubt, fear, resignation and indifference take over our everyday existence. That translates into our family atmosphere as well. We exist, work, sleep and perform tasks necessary for survival. However, that is not the reason we are blessed with life of a human.
Absence of aliveness in our own being manifests in relationships; especially affects our kids. Carrying the emotional baggage of past erodes the aliveness and happiness of today. Yo…

Protection of Kids during Rains

Rainy season is always associated with cool and breezy atmosphere. Everyone welcomes the rain with smile and cheer. Especially kids like to make paper boats and sail them in rainwater. However, there is another aspect of all this enjoyment.
Rainy season and kids' healthChildren hardly bother about their hygiene. They splash dirty rainwater on each other. Moreover,C they like to spend hours in the rain that is a major cause of concern for parents. Prolonged wetness is     not at all good for the health of kids. They may invite cold and other serious infections.

Lack of hygiene can lead to stomach infection and gastroenteritis. It can cause severe setback to the health of the affected child. Sometimes, children forget to wash their dirty hands and this helps in catching the infection faster. In rainy season, carelessness can prove to be fatal. Diseases like typhoid, cholera and Hepatitis A are common in monsoon season. Therefore, parents need to take extra precaution in this regard
