    9 Mistakes to avoid while trying to fix your sleep schedule

    I always say that Good productivity comes from Good rest. And what better way to rest than get cozy under the covers, right? Studies say that humans sleep for 26 years of our lives. As much as that horrifies me, I am far from giving up that dear bed of mine and of course, my precious sleep. But, don’t believe me if I say that my sleep is restful. I often wake up tired, drowsy and often with aches in my body. This weird occurrence is common to most students, millennial adults and nomophobics (yes, Google that) given the circumstance where we look at screens for 6 plus hours a…

Part of being a daughter of God and learning to love has been this- keeping calm and silent, even in the midst of anger and chaos. So, today, I’m going to be throwing light on this: How to keep your peace and calm, in a negative situation, in the midst of a conflict.

    7 Christian YouTubers you should be watching

    Last week, I came across a very unfamiliar term. GAMOPHIBIA – fear of marriage. I thought to myself: “Why would anyone be afraid of marriage?” “You get to wear a designer wedding dress, go to your dream destination for your honeymoon, have sex, play with the babies, read them bedtime tales and grow old with the high school sweetheart you married. What’s not to like?” I know. I know I’m being unrealistic. Marriage is difficult. Given the world we live in, it’s quite easy, I would say, to have a fear of marriage. Broken families, divorce, extramarital affairs, financial problems, family complications- everything is a mess. It’s sad, but it’s…

    What does ‘be you’ really mean?

    I was talking to a friend once as I stood up a stack of chairs fixing something at the top of the door. We were getting ready for a CYP event. Now, if you live in Vasai and don’t know CYP- you suck. So, I told her I was a little nervous and hadn’t prepared to say anything. I was in charge of hosting that evening. “Be You. If you try doing something that’s not you, it won’t work. People will start to notice that. Just BE YOU” – was her very quick answer. I just smiled, thinking, “That didn’t help a lot now, did it?!” Sometimes, it can get…

    10 Reasons I don’t have a boyfriend

    Of all the luxuries a teenage girl can ask for, wanting to have a boyfriend is a huge one. Whether or not you ask for it, the urge to be some cute guy’s girlfriend comes naturally. And, it can get distracting especially when we’re in the middle of, say a science experiment. So, what do we do? If you’ve been thinking about stuff like dating, cute guys and a whole lot of romantic feelings, then maybe we should talk about it. When I was 15, school was a crazy time. All the boys in class were suddenly taller, my friends were talking about romance novels and I couldn’t see why…

    8 Reasons you should avoid vulgar pop music

    We’ve all been there. A friend recommends a new pop song to you. You listen to it and the next thing you know- You’re obsessed with it. You play it on repeat for days and wouldn’t listen to anything else. Until, of course- there’s another song that’s even catchier. But, I’m sure you didn’t check out what the song is about or what are they actually singing, or what meaning are they providing, right? Is that entertainment really worth? But, as long as pop music makes you feel good, you don’t care- right? It certainly doesn’t matter if pop comes with a generous filling of vulgarity, right? It is okay…
