5 Things a woman needs to do just for HER – I
Life of a multi-tasking Woman!
We are so much engrossed in our daily lives being a woman, be it as a professional or as a Mother or even when we play the dual roles. We have always been dedicating ourselves towards our families and the official tasks. All of this makes this life so tiring, atleast I feel so sometimes.
Very less do we plan to please ourselves, to make “our” souls happy. Usually we don’t have much time to think, plan and do to charm the “Woman” in us amidst taking care and loving all. So I wanted to explicitly write this post, for you, for the “Woman” in us, to get a “WOW” from your souls. It will be a 2 post series, the list of 1st five imperative tasks is mentioned in this post.
Ladies, here are some tasks, I feel which are vital for our existence :
1. Exercise/Yoga :
Well, I need to rate it no.1, looking at the lifestyle we lead. Sometimes, I hear mama’s saying, “We are all the time running to complete the tasks, so where comes the need to exercise”? But a dedicated 20-30minute exercise or yoga is something you are doing for your body. It may not be necessarily aimed to get you back to your previous figure, but it is for sure to keep your essential organs healthy. We need to have an oxygenated blood circulating around for the hectic day ahead. It freshens you up and makes you more happy. It not just increases your energy levels, but also helps you have a quality sleep.
Try to make a routine to take a jog and exercise in the nature for atleast 4-5 days a week to gain that happiness and inner satisfaction.
2. Meditation :
Meditation is powerful, a compelling but peaceful force for your mind and soul. I see very less of us practising Meditation. I got certified in this course when I was very young and from past 15 years I have been practising it. Though after having baby, the routine has disturbed somewhat, I’m working out again to make it a regular practise. 15minutes a day, that’s it what it demands. If you have time and can stretch it to 30minutes, no comparison to it.
Meditation not just helps in Physiological benefits as in stronger Immune system, nerve relaxations, it also helps in reducing the ageing effect.[Well, I guess, we all want that, right?]. When disturbed, meditation can help you immensely. It helps in boosting self-confidence, and strengthens the will power. It also helps in making us emotionally stable and brings a calming effect towards our life.
The positive impact of Meditation is immense and I plan to write one dedicated post for my readers soon:)
3. Cook one meal of “Your best choice” :
I remember my mama always used to cook meals which I craved for or which my dad fancied upon. Then, I never cared to ask or even think, whether she also enjoyed all those meals or she wanted to have something really different. I saw her always cooking with love for us and family.
But then tastes do vary and I realized this after I got married and now when I have my kid. Most of the times, I cook what my husband and kid loves. But sometimes, I just “Eat” rather than “Relish” due to a different taste I have. And so I realized, that it is absolutely okay to make a meal to satiate “your own palate” once a week. If your kids and husband relish that, then its great but if not, no worries. We can have a day to prepare and relish a “meal of own choice”.
4. Play out music and dance crazily :
Our lives are so much set into daily routines that we forget the craziness we had. We’re all time doing work and looking after the family and kids. We don’t even have those 10minutes to get insane. Ya, I mean getting Insane. Ha ha, those kooky moves with my family on silly songs just heightens up my spirits and I’m all over with smiles and laughs. We plan a family dance party once a week and it is just fun. No worries, just dance as you wish to and rock the floors. Try out once and share me, how did that go for you?
5. Hangout with Friends :
Socializing is so important. After becoming mama, handling bountiful responsibilities leave us with rather no time to socialize. The little time we get are spent on FB, Whats app and other digital media. Meeting and greeting creates a lot impact on the relationship. It creates a good bonding and a great understanding. Having friends is a blessing in life and we all need some to be a part in the ups and downs we face in lives.
A beautiful friend circle can help us love a big win crazily and even become our support system during the somber days of life. Hang out with your friends atleast once a week and leave the stress – at home.
I am a firm believer that practising these 5 rituals can help us so much as a Woman.
Happy finding “Woman” In you!
