develop emotional stability

8 Ways to Develop Emotional Stability

In today’s stressful life, to be Healthy and Happy one should be emotionally sound. Being a daughter, wife, mom or daughter in law we are the spark or our home. To keep ourselves and our surroundings happy and joyful here are the 8 ways to be emotionally well.

1. Socializing is the best stress buster. Hangouts and holidays with your friends or relatives or any of your circle. When you are with your favourite people you will definitely forget your stress. So be with them and have fun.

2. Learn to say “NO”. If you are not able to say “NO” for anything to anyone, which you can’t do you will be surely irritated and that leads to disturb your mind and make your surroundings stressful.

3. Practice yoga regularly. Studies say that one who practices yoga regularly enjoys a great peace of mind. Her mind will be in her own control, no one can shake her. Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi is the best example of a mentally stable person who practices yoga every day.

4. Don’t just overreact to the situation immediately. Whether it is good news or bad news. Try to understand the situation, if it is sad news. Try to go with the flow and tackle the particular time.

5. Don’t feel guilty in small- small things. If any mistake has happened by you, don’t feel ashamed to say sorry. Better put your ego aside and solve the matter. Don’t think yourself as a criminal.

6. Develop some hobbies, whether it is singing, dancing, swimming, drawing or any other of your choice that makes you happy. While performing your duties whether family or professional don’t forget yourself. In a day, spend some time for your own entertainment that makes you happy and fresh.

7. Enjoy every festival with full of zeal. Celebrating festivals traditionally will bring positive energy in you. Don’t avoid the festivals’ celebrations by going away from home just to run away from traditional rituals.

8. Don’t blame others for your failure. No one other than you can make you succeed. Let the bad time go away calmly. Don’t give up and lose your hope, success will definitely touch your feet if you try hard.

Girls don’t forget, Happiness is within You, don’t search Outside!

5 Strong Reasons Why a Girl Should Work after Marriage

A Girl, after her marriage from daughter – she becomes daughter in –law, wife and eventually a mother. And thus she gets so busy in her family responsibilities that she forgets her own dreams. She leaves her work and performs her routine duties.

In a country like India, a daughter is brought up with the thought that her primary duty is to take care of her family after marriage.

But trust her, she has the capability of doing both the things simultaneously i.e. taking care of the family as well as work professionally.

Here are the five strong reasons why a girl should “WORK” ever after marriage.

1. Self-Respect: When a woman curtailed herself from professional life after marriage, she loses her creativity, productivity as well as confidence in herself. Better, she should work, although with time management that will definitely give her self-satisfaction of doing something.

2. Financial Freedom: Although her husband is earning a handsome amount but spending your own earned income gives you different joyful feelings. One will not be dependent on a husband for small things. Even she can do savings for her future necessities.

3. Family Support: All the time is not the same, you never know when the time changes. Working women will definitely give a hand of support to her family at the time of crisis.

4. Role Models for your Children: Parents are always the first teacher of their kids-specially moms. If mom is professionally active, her children will definitely follow her. At the same time mom will always be respected as she is learned and contributing productively in the society.

5. Self-Development: Learning new things means giving oneself a chance to develop. One cannot develop herself only by sitting within the four walls. For her own development, she has to go out and experience new things which help her to develop to the fullest.

Career options available for girls are a Nutritionist, Digital Marketing, Financial Advisors, Company Secretary, C.A., Hospitality, Aeronautics and many others.

So girls, what are you waiting for? Just pull your socks and paint your life with flying colours!

precious gift

The Most Precious Gift of God – Kids

Being parents is not an easy job. It requires a lot of patience, understanding, strictness as well as happiness. No human is perfect, so don’t go behind your child to make him perfect. Let us be our children’s best friend.

1. Never compare: Every child has different potential. No human is the same, so never compare your child with anyone else child, this may make your child either violent or depressed.

2. Have two-way communication: Don’t give unnecessary lectures to your kids on small things. If he is listening to you, he will respond to you and if he is not responding to you that means he is not listening to you or ignoring your lecture. Give him a chance to reply you as well as share his views.

3. Read books with them: Books are said to be the best friend of man. Your child will follow your footprints. To make your child read books with them and also discuss the contents of the book that will motivate him for reading books.

4. Teach your kid to face failure: While playing with your kid, never defeat yourself to make him win the game. Because if he does not face the failure from the beginning his future will be dark. So make him understand the reality of life.

5. Try to handle your work pressure: Don’t spoil your home’s atmosphere because of your work pressure as it will create a negative impact on your child’s mindset about your career.

6. Keep the atmosphere of your home happy: Atmosphere of your home plays a very important role in your child’s brought up. If possible try to avoid arguments amongst family members in front of the kids, as it creates a negative impact on the little mind. If you are happy, you will help your child to be more productive.

7. Teach them to develop a good relationship: Every human being is a social animal, so we need people to be with. Teaching your kids to maintain good relations and making friends will make his life happy and comfortable.

8. Allow them to play with mobile and watch television: Watching TV and playing with mobile is not wrong. The only thing we should keep in mind is to restrict the timings. It will definitely help them to upgrade and another thing is, they will not divert to someone else who offer them such gadgets. Better help them to use it productively.

9. Cherish them: Appreciation will motivate them to perform better. Admire them on their good behaviour, good habits  even their small success which will motivate them to do better in the future

Let’s enjoy our child’s childhood!

Run Varachha – Run For A Healthy Heart

ઉફ્ફ્ફ! આ  ઠંડી તો કે મારુ કામ!  પણ સવારે રજાઈમાંથી બહાર નીકળવાનું મન થાય તો કસરત કરી શકાય ને! પણ આપણે સુરતી અને ખુશમિજાજ! ચા ની સાથે ખમણ કે લોચો ના મળે તો એ સવાર કેવી!

આજની સ્ત્રીઓની વાત કરીએ તો એ ગૃહિણી હોઈ કે વર્કીંગ વુમન, એકને પરિવાર અને ઘરને સાચવવામાંથી અને બીજાને ઘર અને જોબ બંનેની  વચ્ચે સંતુલન જાળવવામાંથી ફૂરસદ મળતી નથી. અને વિકેન્ડ આવે એટલે થોડીક હળવી ક્ષણો માણવા આપણે બહારનું જંક ફૂડ પસંદ કરી લેતા હોઈએ છીએ કે પછી આ લગ્ન સીઝનમાં જમણવારની વાત હોઈ, આપણે સ્વાસ્થ્યની અવગણના કરીને મીઠાઈ અને ફરસાણ આરોગી લેતા હોઈએ છીએ. પણ શું બીજા દિવસે આપણે કસરત કરવા માટે ઉઠી શકીએ છીએ?

દોડવાનાં  ઘણા-બધા ફાયદા છે. તેનાથી ઘણા-બધા રોગો દૂર થાય છે. હૃદયની બીમારીથી બચી શકાય છે. તેમજ શરીરની તંદુરસ્તી જળવાઈ રહે છે.સવારે જલદી ઊઠીને ચાલવા જવું, દોડવા જવું, યોગા કરવું , કસરત કરવી ખૂબ જ  જરૂરી છે. જેનાથી આપણા તન અને મનની તંદુરસ્તી જળવાઈ  રહે છે. આ ઉપરાંત  તે એકાગ્રતા વધારવામાં પણ ઉપયોગી છે. શિયાળાની ઋતુમાં વસાણાની સાથે સાથે ફક્ત 1 કલાકની નિયમિત કસરત જરૂરી છે. દરરોજ 20 -30 મિનિટનું વોક તો કરવું જ  જોઈએ. આજકાલના લોકો આવી સોશિયલ વેલફેર એકટીવીટીમાં ભાગ લઈ રહ્યા છે અને આવી ઇવેન્ટની આતુરતાથી રાહ જોઈ રહ્યા છે કે જેથી તેઓ પોતાની તંદુરસ્તી માટે પણ એક વખત સમય કાઢી શકે.

આજનાં  આ હેક્ટીકટ સમયમાં સ્ત્રીઓ પોતાના આરોગ્યને લઈને બેદરકાર હોઈ છે. પ્રોફેશનલ અને પર્સનલ લાઈફ બેલેન્સ રાખવાના સ્ટ્રેસમાં પોતાને લાગુ પડતી દરેક વસ્તુને નજર અંદાજ કરતી હોઈ છે. આ જ હેતુથી જ હવે ફક્ત સ્ત્રીઓ માટે મેરેથોન દોડનું આયોજન કરાયું છે. જેને તેઓએ “Run for Varachha” નામ આપ્યું છે. જેમાં સ્ત્રીઓ તેમની બધી ચિંતા મુશ્કેલી દૂર કરીને સાથે મળીને દોડી શકાશે. દરેક સ્ત્રી પોતાના સ્વાસ્થ્યને લઈને સજાગ બને તે હેતુથી “Girl in Neighbour” એ પણ Run Varachha સાથે જોડાઈને સુરતની દરેક મહિલાઓને આ દોડમાં ભાગ લેવા પ્રોત્સાહિત કરે છે.

તો ચાલો, આ ગુલાબી ઠંડીમાં સાથે મળીને દોડીએ અને આપણી તંદુરસ્તી જાળવી રાખીએ જેથી આપણું જીવન વધુ લાંબુ અને સારું બની શકે અને બીજાને ઉપયોગી બની શકીએ.

Surat Celebrates First Ever Digital Marketing Day on 16 December 2018

Recently Oxford Economics released the list of World’s Fastest-Growing Cities. Surat, a diamond processing and trading center in Gujarat, will see the fastest expansion through 2035, averaging more than 9 percent, Richard Holt, Oxford’s head of global cities research, wrote in a report. While the average annual growth of Surat between 2019-2035 is projected at 9.17%, that is the highest among any other city in India, Surat is undoubtedly the future address for business houses in India. SMEs have played a significant role in the growth of the city along with constant evolution of diamond and textile industry. No doubt Surat needs more exposure in terms of knowledge and learning. One such event is going to be organized on 16th December 2018, Sunday in Surat. Surat is celebrating the first-ever Digital Marketing Day on the said date. The pioneer of Digital Marketing consulting and training in South Gujarat – iVIPANAN Digital Marketing Services- is going to organize this event.

Surat is celebrating Social Media Day since 2016 on 30 June and the objective of celebrating Social Media Day is to sensitize people of Surat to leverage the power of social media. In these 3 years, hundreds of people have witnessed talk shows of experts. While iVIPANAN is celebrating this day on a larger scale, they decided to celebrate the Digital Marketing Day in a very short time span.

Common myths

Common Myths Related to Diet & Weight Loss

  1. Jaggery is a good substitute to sugar: Both come from the same source i.e., Sugarcane. Jaggery is made traditionally whereas table sugar is bleached & refined which is why it is crystal clear. But both are SUGARS!!! 1 gm of glucose (be it sugar/jaggery) has 4kcals. So, don’t swap jaggery for sugar to lose weight/control sugar levels.
  2. Slimming belts & creams burn the body fat & make you fit: Slimming belts generate heat on skin surface leading to sweating. The body gets dehydrated because of water loss in form of sweat. Slimming creams are messaged on target areas like tummy, thighs, arms for “Spot Reduction”. They work on the same mechanism as slimming belts. They dehydrate the skin and “InchLoss” is seen after water under the skin is lost.
  3. More sweat = More calories burnt: Not at all!! Sweating is the body’s mechanism to maintain right body temperature. It has got nothing to do with burning fat/calories. So, STAY AWAY from products like “Slimming Belts and Creams” which promise you a healthy and fit body.
  4. Warm lemon water is the best thing to have an empty stomach in the morning: The warm lemon water has nothing to do with burning up the fat. It has negative effects on the body instead!! The molecular composition of lemon water at warm temperature pulls out the calcium from the bones, increasing the risk of osteoporosis. Also, people drinking warm lemon water in the morning are diagnosed with lower serum calcium levels.
  5. Brisk walk post meal aids digestion & weight loss: NO!! It doesn’t After meal our stomach starts digestion (breakdown & absorption) of food for which it needs a maximum blood supply. When you rush for a walk hoping to digest all that you had in the meal, you are actually obstructing the process of digestion by diverting the blood supply to your arms & legs. Just do some light roaming within the house (not more than 100 steps) to feel easy after a heavy meal if you feel.
  6. Cutting carb intake is the best way to lose weight: All carbohydrates are not responsible for making you overweight. The carbohydrates are categorised in 2 types:

a. Bad Carbs (Simple Carbohydrates)

  • They lack fibre & low in nutrients
  • They have empty calories. Which, if in excess, get stored as fat in the body

Example: Cane Sugar, Refined Bread, White Rice/Pasta, Bottled Sauces, Cakes, Biscuits, Sodas, etc.

b. Good Carbs (Complex Carbohydrates)

  • They are high in fibre and nutrients.
  • They are calorie dense (i.e. the feeling of fullness in less calories)
  • They naturally stimulate

Example: Oatmeal, Brown Rice, Sweet Potato, Whole Grains, Quinoa, Beans, Nuts, Vegetables, Seeds.

SO, DON’T ELIMINATE WHOLE CARBOHYDRATE GROUP FROM YOUR DIET. Just stop having simple carbs & feel the difference.

Itna Mota pet bhi aaj chhota pad gaya. 24 panelists team hone ke bavajud bhi Bahot sari items skip karni padi, like Handva,Panaki, sevpuri,Val nu shak, puranpoli and many more items. Last me garma garam Mohanthal & Sukhadi ko to koi compete nahi kar sakta ,very balanced sweet. Surat me out city ya out state ya out country koi aaye to jarur yaha actual Surati -typical-special Indian khana Khane le ja sakte hai. Ab aap sochenge ki kon Si item skip kar sakte hai ? As per my view, Misal Pav ko. Kami kiski rahi ? Toh mukhwas me Pan ki. Bahot kuchh add kar sakate hai like State-wise decoration/ presentation,
The fragrant atmosphere, Indian music/ culture etc. Thanks to Mr Nishant Jaiswal and also Yogesh Gupta. But at last, don’t miss the food of Indi…yah. NRI ko bhi vaha jarur le ja sakte hai jisse ek saath bahot varieties kha sakte hai. Keep it up Indi…yah!!

8 Dos and Don’ts of Eating Habits to Follow This Diwali

Diwali is the time we can’t contain our excitement. be it for shopping, new clothes, crackers but the main thing that tops our Diwali excitement is food. All the Diwali delicacies are amazing. Especially, homemade. But nowadays we avoid having them like we used to have a decade ago.
The craze has gone down because of two reasons:

1) No time to make at home
2) The items are mostly sweet or deep fried

But is it really right to do so?
Is avoiding Diwali delicacies going to help you stay slim? The answer is NO!!!


1. Make food items at home: Making them at home is going to give you a good workout the process of grinding crushing and skillfully making the items really requires a lot of calorie burn so the ball is in your court if you think about workouts

2. Follow Grand mother’s recipe: It is true that old people were quite wiser. All the exclusive ingredients that are used in food during Diwali have special nutritional value they are high in micronutrients and act like special treat do your otherwise “micronutrient depleted” body.

3. Most of the sweets are made by adding ghee in it. So the diabetic people don’t need to completely stay away from it, they can enjoy a small portion for satisfying the taste buds. But mind you, the sweet has to be homemade & in pure ghee.

4. Same applies to namkeen items. There is no harm in having these. Don’t count calories in terms of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Look at how rich is the food in nutritional value.

5. Eat nuts and dry fruits. They are going to help you stay strong during the winters.


1. Don’t have chocolates: Forgetting the laddoos and Barfi, we have started this chocolate exchange trend on Diwali. But it is the worst thing you can feed your body under the name of Diwali gifts. Our traditional sweets stand on the top in terms of “health benefits”!!!

2. Avoid ready-made items: Because you never know how they are fried or in which ghee or oil they are made. We don’t reuse the oil for frying at home. But outside items don’t come with that guarantee. And it is very harmful to our health.

3. The thing that makes us put on Diwali weight is not Food but Lifestyle. So, stop blaming the traditions.

  • Alcohol: It has become a trend under the name of Diwali party to consume alcohol, which is one of the reason that liver metabolism slows down & you don’t burn fat efficiently.
  • Late Nights: Sleep pattern is completely disturbed because of late Nights we spend drinking and playing cards. Also, we end up eating more in the time period we were supposed to sleep.
  • Going for a fat-free and sugar-free substitute: These only suppress our guilt and increase the body’s craving for REAL food. Better have a piece of the sweet or fried item rather than a big portion of fat-free or sugar-free replacement.

So, in short, celebrate your Diwali in the way you have been celebrating since childhood. Forget the calorie count because our body needs nutrition food rich more than lower calorie food.

If you still worry about whatever you have consumed during Diwali and the holidays after Diwali, it is always a good idea to go on a light food or Detox diet for a day or two before resuming healthy routine.

But go for any diet only under the supervision of a dietitian. You can connect to me (Dt. Srushti Bothra) for the same.
