The Pause and Re-start #HumansOfHeartfulness

After hearing about it, I looked it up on the internet and learnt that there was a meditation center in my area. I eagerly started the practice. There was a period when I had to briefly…… Read More.

How Meditation Changes Habits and Personality

“Being someone who consistently meditates was not my cup of tea for very many years. Who doesn’t know the wondrous benefits of meditation?

What is your Attitude?

It happened a few days ago. Despite a regular meditation practice, there are days when I struggle to feel grateful. I feel frustrated, disappointed, jealous, insecure, and just muddled. As humans, we can feel complex emotions. My mind was done with being all calm, happy, and peace loving. It took control. It decided to inject thoughts of everything that is…… Read More.

Celebrating Life – Way Easier than you Think

I fancy holidays as I truly feel merry and bright. It’s the time when I book a hotel and tickets for a flight, and I’m off to a destination that keeps my laptop away from me.

I was 21 years old and working in the East Khasi Hills, in Shillong, Meghalaya which is a beautiful hill station in India with lovely weather. Those were the days when I was…… Read More.

How Meditation Helped Me Cope With A Heartbreak

What does life have in store for us? We will never know until it is revealed, and this counts towards its beauty. To live our life to the fullest in the present is a way to keep ourselves sane. “People and relationships are hard to handle” is the prevailing illusion.

Call of the Heart #HumansOfHeartfulness

A Morning Routine for a Productive Day

One should never underestimate what a productive day can do to our mindset. When we’ve had one of these and ticked everything off our ‘to-do’ list, we yearn to find ways to replicate it. After all, who does not like to feel accomplished and satisfied? I recently had an extremely productive day, and that gave me the motivation to go…… Read More.

Does success lead to crises?

There are several types of crises. There is the mid-life crisis around your fifties; a quarter life crisis where young adults (like me) find themselves overwhelmed at a juncture in their mid-twenties. And in more recent times, the year 2020 is the year of crisis where every day that passes, brings with it an uneasiness of the future for almost…… Read More.
