7 ways to keep yourself young inexpensively? 

7 ways to keep yourself young inexpensively? 


1. Take proper sleep : our worn-out cells are repaired when we sleep, so, ensure that you take adequate sleep (5.30 –  6 hours). It will keep you young. 

2. Intake of antioxidants: anti-oxidants are known to slow the ageing process. Fruits contain anti-oxidants & therefore they must become a part of your diet. 

3. Take a nap : you will not only feel energised after it but it is also healthy


4. Laugh/Giggle/Smile : read jokes, watch comedy clips, etc. & ensure that you laugh & giggle a lot.

5. Exercise : you need not to join jim for this. Just brisk early morning walk for about 10-15 minutes will suffice. 

6. Travel less : avoid jobs that require frequent travels. It has a negative bearing on your health. While travelling neither the provision of healthy food can be ensured (over a sustained period of time) nor you can maintain your routine activities easily (like cooking healthy foodstuff, exercising, etc.)


7. Take life lightly : the more you shed away the tension from your life, the younger you look. So, be at peace always. Never be in a hurry. Get better at scheduling your tasks so that you have time for everything you want to do.

Beyond all of the above, include Black Tea & Green Tea in your breakfast, avoid over-eating after evening, get rid off junk food from your diet & maintain a sustainable lifestyle (by being disciplined).

Life is unforgiving. 

Life is unforgiving. 

Life is very complex & unforgiving. Our mistakes add up over time to result into irreparable losses (that’s why life needs to be monitored on daily basis). 

It is futile to “invest” or “waste” time over convincing someone doing something wrong to mend his/her ways (*of course, until and unless that person is a fast friend of yours’ or a family friend). 

~ People get offended : even if you want genuine change & progress in someone & offer constructive criticism, it often goes unheeded & unattended. Many a times it can be a reason for building up of rift in the relationship.

~People are prisoner’s of their habit : no matter how much they may want to get rid off their habits, simply, they end up continuing with them. It is hard to quit bad habits & pick up the good ones. 

So, at times, people must be left at their own fate/will (considering them that they are “rational-being”). 

Life has its own way of revealing the right & wrong we do over time. Whatever we do today will have some bearing on our future. Looking back, everyone realises one’s fault. The only thing is that sometimes it is too late by then & irreparable losses have already being incurred. 
So, you must always keep evaluating your life. Because, what you lose due to your silly mistakes, may never be regained again (could be a dream, relationship or wealth).

Be ready to get “uncomfortable”.

Be ready to get “uncomfortable”.

It is very essential in life to think along the varied ideas. One must be open even to “uncomfortable” ideas. There is always a possibility that one may miss an important insight/idea. 

We come across various ideas that are floated to us via newspaper & TV & other sources. Many of these ideas may not be useful in your life as such but few are very effective & could bring about a revolutionary change in your life.

Always keep on searching for “new ideas/ways” to accomplish your goals. If you dwell on to find out a better way via application of your intellectual ability, you will surely be able to find it out. 

The only condition in life to discover such “innovative ways” is by continously making effort in this direction. 

The advantages are massive. It provides you with an opportunity to manage your daily affairs, relationships, career, etc. in a “new” & more effective way. 


The beautiful thing in life is “to keep growing”. The fun begins & stays in life as long as we believe that we can change it if we want through our ideas & actions.

How to know that you are being “used”? 

How to know that you are being “used”? 

Men who wield power show the below attribute:

” They do great (praiseworthy) things by themselves but things that are unholy & sinister by others.” 

So, in case, you are being “used”, it would be potentially for “something evil”. 

Consider an example: Person A wants to destroy the goodwill of B. He identifies that person C is an arch enemy of B. So, A approaches C & instigates him to take some action against B. In the whole process, A remains behind the veil but benefits from the actions of C.

So, how to escape such evil-plots: 

~ doubt when people want you to do “something bad” to others. It could be that you might well be used just as a means to accomplish someone else’s task

~ if someone becomes extremely generous & welcoming to you suddenly then doubt his/her intentions

~ never allow anyone to override your sovereignty (by not being dependent upon anyone) 

~ never share much about your friends & enemies (especially about the people you despise) 

~ never take interest in other’s life & usually avoid talking about people 

~ focus on your work (most of the time)

How to avoid giving a way to others interests over yours? 

How to avoid giving a way to others interests over yours?

Suppose you have just returned from a movie & someone asks you to accompany him/her for a movie which is to start after few hours. Consider another scenario, someone pays a visit to you after his/her exam & you have a deadline approaching for your work. 

In situations like above, it is better to “let the other person know & understand about your priorities”. 

For a person coming out the examination hall, fun & entertainment could be an agenda, but not for you!

There are some who seek pleasure 24*7. Don’t entertain much such people. 

Some quick hacks for life: 

~ be disciplined even when you enjoy. Enjoyment without boundaries & constraints is dangerous 

~ have fun & enjoyment but it must never come in way to your dreams (you must know when to reduce the intake of activities that are mere the source of pleasure in your life) 

~ you must have control over yourself (just because someone offers you “something free of cost” doesn’t means that you should fall for them. Most often, they are a ploy to get you into “the team”)

7 reasons why you should not use “Sarahah”? 

7 reasons why you should not use “Sarahah”? 

While there might be many reasons to use Sarahah like to get honest feedback, to improve yourself, etc. But it all comes at a cost. 

1. Feedbacks may not be honest : especially in case of girls. They could be baised.

2. Friends are few : only few people get to know your “true nature”. With them you spend most of your time with. They keep on giving you feedback regularly, why you need it from people who might be mere acquaintances? 

3. Feedbacks, do they count? When was the last time on Earth, when you tried to improve yourself after receiving an honest feedback? We all have lot many flaws which we wish to hide & get away with.

4. Online Bullying : since the feedbacks are anonymous, one can use it for bullying 

5. Simple Principle of Life : does the feedback of those who can’t speak up in front of us counts? People should have the balls to speak to us in person (whether good or bad). 

6. Will it change your life? : Facebook helps you to stay in touch with friends & acquaintances. How does Sarahah is going to help you in life at large? One day people will get bored of “giving feedbacks” to you. 

7. Don’t care about others : if you want to keep your life simple & joyfull then don’t get into any creepy thing like Sarahah to satisfy your ego.

So, what you should do?

What should be the nature of the relationships after you have graduated? 

What should be the nature of the relationships after you have graduated? 

They should not be one-way. Only during your college-time you can afford the relationships which are one-way because “you may find few good friends there”. The possibility of nurturing a relationship that converts into a life-long friendship is very unlikely after you step out of the college life. Try to develop relationships which are mutual in nature. After you cross the boundaries of college life, you are seen “as a means” rather than as an end. So, be:

~ family-oriented: after graduating, look into the matters of the family, take some responsibilities & spend most of the time with family members. 

~ focus on dreams rather than people : work hard for your dreams. Only few people will stand by you in times of need. So, don’t expect people to be very warm & welcoming. That could be a BIG MISTAKE to do.

~ Say “No” & “Sorry” : express your inability to attend get-togethers, parties, marriage ceremonies, etc. 

~ Don’t explain : never give a justification for your actions (explain only when you think 80% or more people around you are offended by your actions) 

~ Know your responsibilities : never give advice to anyone on anything. Let them choose the way they want to live their life (of course until & unless that person is very close to you). Most of the time people just need your company to feel better (& not an advice!).

Why you must always pick low-hanging fruits? 

Why you must always pick low-hanging fruits?

Opportunities have a multiplier effect. One opportunity opens the way for another. So, you must try not to miss opportunities that are easy to seize (the low-hanging fruits). Let’s understand why I say so:

~ Just as we have social security schemes to take care of us in times of crisis, so, becomes the case of “low-hanging fruits”. They act as a security net for us. Like passing 10+2 examination is not a big deal but still many fail (from non-marginalised background) so they kill the opportunities that are available to one after 10+2. 

~ Knowledge too has a multiplier effect. That is, it increases as you choose to put more efforts. Sometimes, picking up low-hanging fruits may seem a bad idea but when you pick them up consistently, they add up & the opportunity seized translates to a BIG ONE. 

~ Ideally you must aim for big opportunities but usually you should never leave the low-hanging fruits-type opportunities (as you can easily catch them with ease without much of your time & efforts & maybe working part-time)

~ As you successfully pick up the low-hanging fruits, your confidence boosts. It is not important in life how you start/from where you start but how you end/finish. So, everything depends on “what you learn & do along the way”. 

So, while you focus on to seize the best of the best opportunities, don’t forget to pick up the seemingly not-so-good opportunities too.

Why you should pay more to your employees? 

Why you should pay more to your employees? 

As an employer you can choose to pay your employees at “market wages” or “pay more than the market wages”. 

All firms have the objective of profit-maximization.  So, wouldn’t paying more than the market price to the employees hurt your profits? 

The answer lies in “The Theory of Efficiency Wages” of economics which says that the productivity of the firm rises when the wages are higher than the equilibrium (market rate). 

~ when you pay more, the employees know that “they can’t get greater wages than your firm”, so they tend to work with more responsibility 

~ the attrition rate is lower & hence you need not to spend on recruitment & fresh – training

~ you can expect greater support & cooperation from employees

~ productivity of the firm rises which reflects in greater profits 

The above approach is also applicable to relationships. The only difference is that instead of “wages” what counts in relationships is “how you treat others”. The better treatment you give, the more cooperation you receive. 

Hence, always find some time to :

~ help others in small ways

~ eat, laugh & have fun together

~ share the fruits of your hardwork

Guide to a better life after first job. 

Guide to a better life after first job. 

1. Stay away from “pleasure-seeking people”.

Once in the job, you should stay away from pleasure-seeking people –  be it acquaintances, colleagues, and not-so-close-friends. However, if you remain close to them it only manifests into:
– going for late night-parties, picnics, weekend parties, trips etc. (it not only involves wastage of your money but also your time). Discipline is very necessary, more so in case of limiting pleasure activities. 

– it hinders you to find time for self-learning & self-development 

– it restricts you to spend more time with your family 

2. Stay away from those who are not laborious. 

Stay away from people who are not hardworking. Habits are highly contagious. So, the best is to stay away from people who are not so hardworking.

It is advisable to stay-focused to your career & dreams after your first job. 

3. Family matters a lot. 

This is the best time to contribute & give back productively to the family. Remember, they always stood with you (& never left you alone). 

4. Keep your life simple. 

Don’t go after taking a loan to buy a big car, fancy items, etc. Keep life simple with less “material items”. Devote most of your time to learn, skill yourself, make connections, etc.

You must have a long-term goal (5 years from to 10 years) but you should work with a kind of urgency to their fulfillment.
