Tips for Enjoyment and Relaxation (Part:2)

New Blog!!
(Holidays & Sundays)

Continued from Last Blog. dated : 14.09.11

Generally people spend a large amount of money to purchase things or services to make them Happy, they have to move outside of Home to get enjoyment. They go to parties, join some clubs, gradually they start spending quality time outside their home.

If they do not understand reasons well in time, they make distances with their family in the pursuit of Happiness. Sometimes they have to seek advise of Consultant to explore Enjoyment in daily life.

During weekdays, it is hard to share ample time with family members, but we can utilize Sundays and holidays to bridge the gap and meet family grievances by spending quality time with them. It would not only make them happy, you would also share this big deal too.

I am submitting some tips, these are practical ones , most importantly … very economical ones, you have to be with family and mind the given suggestions.. 

Morning :
  • Surprise your spouse with bed tea, Remember that aroma and taste of the tea should be better.
  • Go for a long walk. Feel the beauty and greenery of nature.
  • Spend sometime in your garden, involve kids, plant some new flowers, teach them Gardening techniques.
  • Organize your Home, remove clutter from your desk, maintain separate files for important documents.
  • Wash your vehicle, ask kids to clean their cycle, roller skates etc too.
  • Enjoy bathing with kids, teach them to arrange their cloths and accessories,
  • Enjoy a family Breakfast with lot of chit-chat conversation.
  • Take account of kids studies, check their notebooks and teacher's comments. 
  • Teach something new to your kids to enhance their creativity.
  • Call your friends and relatives whom you miss a lot. Delete unnecessary sms and phone no from your mobiles.
  • Do something to speed up your PC/ laptop , as like disk cleanup and defragmentation.
  • Watch some knowledgeable content on TV channel.
  • Join your spouse in kitchen with kids , Cook some new receipe and enjoy Family lunch.
  • If you love and miss naps after lunch on weekdays, you can enjoy 2-3 hours sleep also, if not interested with Sleeping, Read a good Book..

  • Play a game of cricket or hockey with family members and kids. Involve your neighbors and their kids too. You will get a chance to know them also, who used to play regularly with your kids.Train them the basics of the game too if you can.
  • Motivate your spouse to learn driving scooter  / 4 wheeler etc, if she is not skilled.
  • Visit local worship place to participate in prayer, teach kids about spiritual ritual and beliefs being followed in society.
  • Go for shopping , your spouse would love too, it may be that during week days, she has to go for shopping alone. Two person can make a good deal and bargain effectively.
  • Visit local grocery store with your kids and let them learn about identifying quality vegetables, fishes, meat etc.
  • Pay visit to your local  old aged relative, spend some time with them.
  • Visit to your new neighbor and enjoy tea during introduction. You can develop your relationship as new family friend. A good neighbor is as good as a good relative or friend.
  • Arrange a common prayer session of your family members.
  • Enjoy movie at local multiplex or you may opt for watching a new DVD at your home also.

Most important thing, never miss a chance to chat with your wife as and when you feel free. Don't think about place or time to start the conversation, just be with her and share her ideas and feelings regarding several issues. She can inform you about your kids good and bad habits, their performance at school etc.

She will be happier, you may explore hidden aspects of her personality and she would enjoy your company all the way.I am insisting on this point because I have experienced that We should respect the individuality of our spouse. Our likes and dislikes may be different, but we can share the feelings. She bears greater responsibly to perform, we must explore the ways to please her. She can make your day.. she can be inspiration behind your success. After all She is the "Better Half"   of our life.

 I have learnt that people who seek "Happiness" outside their home and love to spend quality time with outsiders (persons , not in the group of family or friends), they have to suffer and remain restless in future too 

All the mentioned tips would enrich your life with enjoyment directly or indirectly, sooner or later. You must give these tips a try.. no side effect at all. I repeat and  insist  explore "Happiness" inside your Home, along with family members. The Gods of happiness are all around you... your spouse and kids. If you belong to a joint family, then  its a BONUS for your Happy life. 

Wish you all good luck and happy life.

Special Sunday (04.09.11)

New Blog!!

It was a charming Sunday, 4th Sept, 2011. I was very excited about  this plan to be executed on this Sunday. Actually, I have planned a “7 Km morning walk”. The decided path was Masodha (Factory colony) to Naka bypass, Faizabad city. My office subordinates were also agreed to participate. You will wonder to know that my elder son “ Param” also participated very happily although I had to share the idea with him in the last minutes only.

Actually, I wanted to do something different on Sundays, the colonial life at our Factory is not very entertaining. Generally people like to spend they their whole day inside their home. If they meet their neighbor, they usually talk about Factory.. factory.. and just factory.

Back to the main topic, So we started our walk by 8am, I tried to convince  Manu (nick name of Param), but he succeed to convince me that he is tough one to complete the morning walk. Manu is my elder son , He is just 9 years old, studying in Std Vth.  Although I had a secret plan that if any where mid way during the morning walk he feels tired, I will send him back to home by Auto rickshaw along with anyone of colleague.

My followers were Sachin, KP Singh, Parmeshwar and Ranvijay. Everybody aged between 26 to 36 except Manu. We were talking about greeneries, streets of the villages turning to the left or right of the main road. It was a good weather, temperature about 25-27 degrees, sky was clouded and there was slow breeze of wind blowing from east to west.

I just whispered the lines of Robert frost :

The woods are lovely dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
I have miles to go before I sleep,
I have miles to go before I sleep.

We talked about Agriculture practices by villagers, paddy fields , water irrigation system and child hood days at villages. There were chirping sounds of birds all around us. But the most important fact was that Manu was leading all of us. He was moving quickly, there was a time when he was about ½ Km ahead of us and I had to send one of my colleague to run behind him. Manu was very happy. I still wonder about his zeal for the walk.

We observed starting traffic on road, during the walk, there were some moments when some Autorickshaw just stopped beside us expecting to get 5 customers at one point. Some times, we saw people were staring to us  as we are going for a march past etc.

We reached to our destination after 1 hour 20 minutes, it was 10-20 minutes more than my estimated time, if we could have walked with speed of Manu, we would have reached after just 50 minutes. We looked for any good tea stall , but there were tea stalls but no one has prepared “Jalebi”. We decided to return by Auto and enjoy “ garma-garam-jalebi” near by Masodha at “Chauhan’s restaurant”. Jalebi seemed to be tastier than any other days. We had completed the walk successfully.

I mean to say that we should challenge our limits. Step by step, one by one. We can be better. We can be strong. I just wanted to test my fitness and stamina. Now I can say that I can walk 10km in a stretch and it would not take more than 2 hours. So this is the short story of one of my Special Sunday.

Sundays are very special days of the week. Sometimes, I wish to make it special by doing something new, something challenging. I just try to do something to please my inner self. I used to re-organize and re-charge myself to face new upcoming challenges in next week.

We never know our capacities unless we test it or we had to face as challenge. Generally we under estimate our strengths, we used to live in fear of failure.

We can win, we can overcome our fears. Have faith and self-confidence, There is a “Winner” inside us seeking for a Chance to prove.  Don’t let the lucky chance get away from your hand, seek for opportunities. Very few people know about their abilities, we must explore our abilities.
