Reasons why you are seeing 222

222.jpg

When you see the number 222, 2:22,2.22 etc. repeatedly, it means that you are at a point in your life where you are looking for some balance.

Seeing 222 is your angel’s way of confirming to you that you are on the right track. You are about to find harmony, balance and success in whatever you are doing.

It is a confirmation that you will soon get desired results for your past efforts and should just have faith and patience. Let go of any negativity or insecurity and focus on the positive side.

When you see 222, be sure to not have any doubts regarding the decisions that you have made or are about to make. You are on the right track and should undoubtedly take the desired actions.

The number 2 means duality and seeing this number means you are about to find companionship either physically or spiritually. This could be a good sign for someone looking for love since you are about to find that special one soon.

Whenever you see this number, please pay attention, as your angels have very limited ways to connect and guide you through this physical world. They want you to know that they are always there with you to guide you.

Next time you see 222, make sure to show your gratitude by saying ‘Thank You!’

Stay Blessed. Stay woke!

Is Meditation Overrated?

Have you ever felt that..

No matter how much you sleep, you are still sleepy.

No matter how much you try, you lose focus easily.

No matter how many vacations or breaks you take, you are still tired physically and mentally.

Then this post is just for you.

   In our daily hustle and bustle, we are well aware about our surroundings but we often forget to be aware of what is happening to us on the inside. In this fast paced world we need to constantly work towards our goals to achieve success. But, what will all that success mean if you are not mentally at peace.

    I know you have heard it a million times that meditation is the answer. Trust me, even I felt that meditation was a hoax which was nothing but a waste of time. After all, as far as I understand, meditation means ‘doing nothing’. Not even thinking. How hard could that be right.

I started practicing meditation a few years back. What harm in trying it out I thought after all,  all I was supposed to do was to just sit in a comfortable position, back straight, eyes closed and relax. I was supposed to not try to think anything, just observe the thoughts. Seemed easy, so, I gave it a shot.

I opened my eyes within 10 seconds. My thoughts literally bombarded me. In fact I felt like I had more thoughts while I was meditating. This got me startled as I couldn’t believe that doing nothing could be this hard…to not think just for 10 seconds..the mind just won’t shut up. That’s how occupied our minds are all the time. I was determined and knew I had to control my mind through meditation.

I got better at meditating with time. The key here is to not stop yourself from thinking while meditating. Just observe your thoughts. Let them come and go. You literally don’t have to do anything. Sometimes I like to put on some calm instrumental music in the background. Sometimes I just observe my breath.

You may ask, what is the use of meditating after all?

I’m gonna be very straight forward with you on this. Like some other blogs I’m not gonna give you this crap that it is a miracle or it changed my life. But yes, I’ll tell you this one thing that it helps, it makes you strong mentally.

All the decisions we make, each of our action, depends on how and what we think and when you are thinking clearly, obviously you make better decisions. I strongly recommend to try out meditating. Start with 30 seconds and gradually increase the time as you get the hang of it. I am now able to meditate for 30 minutes non-stop.

Daily Awkward Moments

It happens to the best of us..

  • Sending a text to the wrong person.

  • When someone catches you staring at them.

  • Going in for the hug when they are going in for the handshake.

  • Tripping in a public place and pretending like nothing happened.

  • When you go in for a high-five but no one bothers to high-five you back.

  • When someone smiles at you and you smile back only to realise they were smiling at a person behind you.

  • Pushing a door that says ‘Pull’

  • You start picking your nose and realise you are at a public place, so you look around to check if anyone noticed.

  • Forgetting someones name right after they introduce themselves to you.

Quitting caffeine was the best decision I made!

Cup of coffee with coffee beans

    Feeling grumpy in the mornings and don’t want to have any human interaction unless you have had your favourite cup of coffee. Feeling drowsy after 3-4 hours and crave for yet another cup of coffee. Then this post is just for you.

Caffeine_Addiction

    Let me share my personal experience on how I quit caffeine. If I can do it, anyone can do it as I was addicted to tea and coffee and needed 3-4 cups of either of these hot beverages to function normally. My husband would complain that I become the meanest and rudest person on this planet if he dared to speak to me in the morning before I have had my cup of chai(tea). Which I kind of agreed with him(Poor husband! had to see me at my worst).

    My mother turned vegan a decade ago when she decided to follow Naturopathy and I have seen how she has recovered from her illnesses. I asked her that how does she have so much energy throughout the day and manage to sleep so well. I really wanted to have at least half the energy that she has. She didn’t force me to turn Vegan but just asked me to do a lil experiment for 1 month which was to stop caffeine intake completely. I had many doubts, how would I have energy throughout the day and won’t it make me feel sleepy without having tea or coffee. But, I anyways decided to go for it as what’s the harm in trying i thought.

    I went cold turkey on caffeine, no tea or coffee for 2 days straight. I did feel the urge to have my tea out of my daily habit but I was determined to quit. I have to admit the 1st week was the toughest. My body was craving for caffeine, which clearly showed how addicted I was. I was grumpy, sleepy, irritated, had frequent headaches and also felt nauseous sometimes. I felt like I can’t do it any more but still managed to be strong, as I was shocked to see how I could be so addicted to something.

youll-sleep-better

    Finally, things changed week 2 onwards. I started sleeping better, I felt more energy throughout the day (which was a pleasant surprise for me), my acne and fine lines started vanishing and my skin became clearer (as caffeine tends to dehydrate your skin), Less hair fall, I also lost some weight after a month as I was consuming less sugar (yes I liked sweet teas). As time passed I was able to focus better on things and was more alert, My anger also disappeared (No wonder my husband is happy for me!) and I started to be in a good mood overall.

    So, to conclude, I have successfully quit caffeine which seemed impossible to me. I don’t think I will ever go back to consuming caffeine as I now know the health hazards it causes. I wouldn’t say I don’t like tea any more..I still love it. I occasionally have just 2-3 sips of tea when I feel like. But I can surely say that I am not addicted to it any more. All thanks to my Mother, my biggest motivation.

    I would like to tell all you guys who read this post that you can google the health hazards of caffeine in a long run and decide for yourself if you want to consume it or not. It seemed impossible for me to quit but I did it and so can you. Heres wishing all of you a good and healthy life!

Start Your Mornings Right!

The moment we wake up in the morning, the first thing we do is that we reach out for the mobile phone and just scroll like maniacs on social media. We lose track of time and are bombarded with all the useless information which takes up space in our head and not let us have a clear mind which ultimately results in us having a shitty day.

What if from now on, when you wake up, Smile (yes! you are alive..just smile), Stretch your arms and legs, Hop out of the bed (you don’t wanna fall back to sleep in your cozy bed), Open the blinds and look out of the window for a few seconds, make your bed, take a nice warm shower, Have a healthy breakfast or at least have a fruit and lastly Make a list of things you are about to do for the day. Let me remind you, you have not even touched your phone yet.

What this simple daily routine will do is that you will feel like you have accomplished so much in such little time. This positive attitude will automatically make you feel like you are having a good day and trust me you will have a good day as you have finally started your morning right!

Try yourself and let me know how it worked for you because it sure works for me!

Happy Mornings!
