100 days

Day one-   It’ll be August 8th in 100 days, and for the next 100 days, I intend to mindfully incorporate healthy habits into my daily life because my excuses were getting bigger than me. My tomorrow was never coming and I was dangerously blurring the lines between making healthy choices and letting loose to indulge. By the end of the 100 days, I aim to be and feel as fit as I used to back in college, and be stronger mentally and emotionally. So I started my day one unceremoniously today. Did a quick 20-minute workout. Although the plan … Continue reading 100 days

Age is catching up faster than I thought

I had never imagined I had to start worrying about a skin care regime and sticking to a routine as early as 23!! But I’ve decided to take up and keep up certain resolutions starting March 1, one of it being doing some good for my skin every damn day. I’ve dabbed with different products the last couple of months and having combination skin made it really difficult to figure out what worked best, what I really did try was focus on reducing the number of products I used and I think I may have landed the perfect blend! Like … Continue reading Age is catching up faster than I thought

Try again

12th January, 2018 Two weeks into a new year and some of my resolutions are going good and some not so great. I initially thought not writing them down would make me want to keep them, but now is a good time to bring in accountability into the picture. Some of things I wanted to work on this month were the time I spend using my phone, time spent on social media. I’m quit all beverages for as long as I can and am even planning on removing milkshakes starting 15th. So far so good, I’m reading three books at … Continue reading Try again

Book #1: The PCOD-Thyroid Book by Rujuta Diwekar

Starting sometime in March I decided to start reading at least one book per month. There used to be a time when I loved reading but it has been nearly three years since I have finished anything that I have picked up, and I figured it was high time I start on a healthy habit!! Just so that I can keep myself accountable I thought I’d log everything I read on here. I can’t guarantee presenting a detailed review of everything I have read but I am going to try and that will have to suffice for now! For March, … Continue reading Book #1: The PCOD-Thyroid Book by Rujuta Diwekar

No turning back

Attachment. Are humans inevitably to feel attached to things? What happens when you do lose something that you thought you would never lose, and you feel nothing? Maybe just relief. Like lightning of a burden, like finally waking up and realising the answer to your problem was always there, was so simply, was just waiting to be seen. I have always quite honestly found myself more attached to things and people to an almost unhealthy level. That coffee mug I HAVE to have my morning cuppa every day That one pen I carry with me for important work That one … Continue reading No turning back

Routine is not Rut?

The week’s been quite reflective. It seems to me, that every 20 something year old goes through a phase where they realise that there was always so much beauty in you, in me and in everything and for whatever reason we believe the lies that are fed to us, until one day you look at an old photograph  and wonder why you did not believe in yourself enough. No, I’m not going to go off on a rant about self-love and self-appreciation, trying to convince you and me that you are beautiful, you always have been, it’s just been a … Continue reading Routine is not Rut?

Picture Wednesday

Week one This week’s picture is of this beautiful canopy I found just outside my workplace. It’s been a very slow week, constantly plagued by fear of not doing the right thing, fear of letting things get by and worst of all the fear of slipping back into the slump that I might just have crawled out. Sitting under this just for a few minutes because I wasn’t quite sure what to do next made me realise how I am almost forgetting that the most simple things bring me joy. In a city clogged with traffic, where there is barely … Continue reading Picture Wednesday
