Daily Meaningful Mindfulness Routine

​Since learning about Mindfulness and passing my ‘Mindfulness Diploma‘ last year, my life has shifted. Living in mindfulness simply means living in the moment – in the now!  Mindfulness helps you to calm the compulsive chatter in your head and to get some rest from your problems, your worries and your issues and […]


Cheers to 2017

You’ve only got one life

I plan for the upcoming week on a Sunday and decided to treat myself to the movies, I’ve heard so much about ‘Me Before You’ that I’d decided that’s the movie I wanted to watch. I booked the tickets on Sunday itself and scheduled it my journal and my Google […]

Love & Relationships

A couple of days ago I was downloading various inspirational podcasts for my iPod to listen to while I am working out, going for a walk, travelling and for those times I need a little ‘pick-me-up’. The first one I listened to today (call it coincidence or whatever), was a […]

Do you feel guilty about practicing Self-Love & Self-Care? I am a big advocate of the importance of Self-Love & Self-Care (check out my calendar here). On my travel to India in April, I came across Happinez Magazine where I read a beautiful poem by Charlie Chaplin; ‘As I began to love myself’. This poem really […]


Enjoy Your Own Company

Until we moved to the UK Summer 2008, I had never been alone. I always used to have my family (parents, siblings, niece and nephew and of course Khushi). Once we had settled down and ‘normal’ life had commenced, I started feeling lonely those hours Khushi was at school. Somehow […]

Do you feel guilty when practicing self-love & self-care?

When I take time out for myself or do something for myself, I feel guilty. I always feel like I should be working more on ‘Building my Empire‘ and spend quality time with Khushi (or use the money I want to use on myself on Khushi or save it for […]


Dealing with negative feelings and emotions

We all have at times felt having negative feelings towards people who are close to us, but how do you deal with it? I struggled with this for years, I had all these feelings and emotions inside of me but didn’t have anyone I could openly speak to about without […]


Reflect & Reminisce

I am sitting here reflecting and reminiscing over my life (so far!) – listening to ‘Liquid Piano Bar‘, sipping a glass of refreshing Apple & Elderflower Cordial while watching the flame of a tea-light burning; PURE BLISS! It’s not often I sit down like this, but I now realise this […]


101 Things I am Grateful for! (80 so far)

Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks […]
