Conversation of two master of wisdom 

1. Swami Vivekanand:- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

2. Swami Vivekanand:- Why has life become complicated now?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Stop analyzing life.. It makes it
complicated. Just live it.

3. Swami Vivekanand:- Why are we then constantly unhappy?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Worrying has become your habit. That’s why
you are not happy.

4. Swami Vivekanand:- Why do good people always suffer?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Diamond cannot be polished without friction.
Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials,
but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

5. Swami Vivekanand:- You mean to say such experience is useful?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard
teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons.

6. Swami Vivekanand:- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where
we are heading…

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- If you look outside you will not know where
you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the
way.

7. Swami Vivekanand:- Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Success is a measure as decided by others.
Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

8. Swami Vivekanand:- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Always look at how far you have come rather
than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you
are missing.

9. Swami Vivekanand:- What surprises you about people?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When
they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”

10. Swami Vivekanand:- How can I get the best out of life?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Face your past without regret. Handle your
present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

11. Swami Vivekanand:- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers
are not answered.

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the
faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to
resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

Squirrel on pine tree (joke)

A squirrel is living in a pine tree, when one day it starts to shake
and rock so violently she almost fell down.

So was barely able to walk with holding on to the wood and
looks outside and he sees a large elephant trying to climb
up the tree.

“What the heck!” the squirrel exclaims. “What the heck do you
think you’re doing climbing up this tree, you almost had me
killed?”

The elephant responds. “I’m climbing up here to eat apples.”

The squirrel is befuddled. “You moron! This is a pine tree!
There are no apples here!”

The elephants stares at him for a moment before
replying, “I know. I brought my own.”

Simplify Your Life in 20 Easy Steps!

Let’s face it, life has become way too compilated. Between spending huge parts of our time at work, paying our taxes, making sure everything in the house is in order, fixing our cars, making sure our kids are ok, working for their future and dealing with the ever increasing demands of technology from us, sometimes we just feel screaming: “Enough! Leave me alone!”. 
But life doesn’t uncomplicate itself, we have to do that, and so, with the goal in mind of having a simpler life, you can have it without moving to some remote countryside and milking cows. Here’s how:

1. Get up 20 minutes earlier: If you find your morning tight on time, try to go to bed a littler earlier and get up 20-30 minutes before your usual time. You’ll be surprised how this little addition of time can start your whole day better.

2. Be 10 minutes early for meetings: It’s hard to be late when you’re planning to get there early, and it’ll some of the pressure off. You’ll also have time to smooth out your thoughts and think about what you’d to say.

3. One thing at a time: Don’t be fooled by those around you who brag they can do it all. Everyone has a problem concentrating on several tasks at once or even pay attention to one while thinking of another. Try to put your entire focus on the most urgent issue. Finish it and then move on to the next. You’ll be surprised how much faster and more efficient you are at problem solving when you’re solving one problem at a time.

4. Ask yourselves some questions: 
Stop yourselves from time to time and ask: “Am I making things more complicated?” and “how can I simplify the problem?”. Sometimes we miss simple solutions because we don’t stop to look around us.

5. Ask yourselves: 
“Will this still matter in five years?” Most of the time, it won’t even matter in 5 months or even 5 weeks. If you find yourselves facing a mountain, maybe check it’s not a molehill.

6. Write down everything: 
There is no memory that doesn’t ‘leak’ from time to time. The few minutes you spend writing things down will be worth having those things out of your head and memory, resulting in less pressure.

7. Remember that there is something greater than yourselves:
 We don’t know everything, nor are we always right. There are always going to be causes bigger than ourselves.

8. Enjoy the simple things: 
Sometimes we need to stop, shut our eyes tightly, and then open them again and truly FEEL the moment we’re in, the way it looks, the way it sounds, feels, smells and tastes. This is the meaning of living in the moment and enjoying things that are so basic we hardly really pay them attention anymore.

9. Drink a glass of water: Water is the essence of life, and sometimes we might be better off drinking than binging on junk food that will just increase our anxious feelings.

10. Kindness is a blessing returned: Be kind to others. One day you may be old, sick and in need of kindness yourselves, knowing that you were kind to others and that they want what’s best for you is a load off, and will reduce the fear you feel about the future.

11. Simplify your life by simplifying your home: A cluttered house is a cluttered mind, some say. Try and keep a place for everything in your house, keep it clean and tidy. It may seem unrelated, but a clean house makes us feel good about ourselves and helps us concentrate on what’s important.

12. Stop and find the roses: Instead of jumping from thing to thing, try taking some extra time with certain tasks, relationships, work and personal projects. That extra time will give you confidence and help you discover things you may miss when you’re rushing about.

13. Spend some time with simpler folk:
 Spending time with those that lead a simple life will help you simplify your own. Their slower pace and calm will leak into your own life, and you’ll learn some of their tricks for simpler living. 

14. Ask advice from those who have been there:
 When you encounter a problem, remember that most of them are not new, they have been challenging others as well. Turn to those who have been there, and ask for their advice. Sometimes it takes a village to get through life.

15. Forget about perfection: 
Don’t try to do everything perfectly, you’ll probably not succeed. Let go of the illusion of perfection and focus on what you have that is good and true.

16. Take a breath of fresh air a few times a day: 
a smoker on smoke breaks, take breaks to go out and get some fresh air. You’ll be surprised how quickly those anxious thoughts can die down while you take a minute to disconnect from anxiety and reconnect with the world around you.

17. Take 30 minutes on the weekend to plan your week:
Weekends are a great time to relax and take a little time to plan out what you are going to do this week. Make a list. It will help you remember and you’ll feel more calm dealing with the coming week’s challenges.

18. Ask people around you more questions:
 Sometimes, the things that make us anxious could be solved with a simple question. Don’t be afraid to get answers you may not want to hear – in the long run, it’ll help to know.

19. Take some time to be lazy: If you can simplify your lives a bit, you may find out you have some spare time. Take some of it to relax, you deserve a little laziness.

20. Remember life is longer than you think: 
You may change your mind a couple of times throughout, you may grow as a person and want different things, love different people. Accept this fact, and you’ll see how things won’t bother you as much. We promise

how to control these mood swings?

Below are some points which you need to ponder on:
1- Analyze yourself on what are the triggers which cause your mood swings? is this an event, or comment or act or presence of a person? Fix the problem or start loving it. 

2- Respect the fact that every single soul is a unique in terms of thinking and acting. You cannot order people to follow your way of thinking and living. Relax. Give respect to earn respect. It takes two hands to clap.

3- Write down your triggers on a paper. You will notice that your problem is not that much big!

4- Discuss your issue with the person and find out a solution. Be flexible. You may not be right in your demands or you may be completely wrong in your demands. Be honest, analytical and logical while you share your comments and desires.

5- Observe others on how they react in different kind of circumstances. Find out a mentor in your life you can follow. Or even you can observe everyone because everyone has something to teach you. Closely observe. 

6- Avoid taking stress. The more you take stress the more you lose control on your emotions and become unpredictable. Read my article on Stress by clicking here and clicking here 

7- Develop Trust in your relations so that people feel easy to get along with you.

Engineer and doctor (nice joke)

An Engineer was unemployed for long time. He could not find a job

so he opened a medical clinic and puts a sign up outside: “Get your
treatment for $500, if not treated get
back $1,000.”

One Doctor thinks this is a good opportunity to earn $1,000 and goes
to his clinic.

Doctor: “I have lost taste in my mouth.”

Engineer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops
in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor: “This is Gasoline!”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be
$500.”

The Doctor gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days later
to recover his money.

Doctor: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Engineer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops
in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor: “But that is Gasoline!”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will
be $500.”

The Doctor leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Doctor: “My eyesight has become weak.”

Engineer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for this. Take
this $1,000.”

Doctor: “But this is $500…”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back!

That will be $500.”

Must Read about your KYC docs

Dear All,


Wanted to highlight one very important aspect.

 In ordinary course we keep issuing and submitting our KYC documents (identity and residential proofs..such as PAN card, electricity bill etc.) to various people. 

For housing or car or other loans, bank accounts,or even for buying new sim card we submit these documents.

 At almost all these places they ask for self certification on these documents. We immediately sign those documents and hand over.

 Just imagine your self certified copies are freely available in the hands of such persons & those documents can be used by him for EVERYTHING! 

Its really serious and its been seen that in most of the terrorist activities, KYC documents are sourced from the SIM card sellers. 

Hence, please inculcate a habit of writting the purpose for which you are submitting the self certified KYC Documents so that those documents cannot be used again. 

10 Tips to Keep Our Bones Strong

1. Consume milk products – 

Every child knows that milk is rich in calcium and is essential for strengthening bones. 

This goes for all milk products, including cheese, yogurt and alike. 

If you don’t like cow’s milk, try soy milk enriched with calcium.

2. Add nuts to your diet – 

Although milk has the highest ratio of calcium to volume, it is not the only source. 

Some nuts and seeds have handsome amounts of calcium. 

A 30 gram course of almonds contains 75mg of calcium, 30 grams of sesame seeds contains 37mg of calcium and sunflower seeds have 33mg of calcium.

3. Eat dark green vegetables – 

Broccoli, Chinese cabbage, arugula, parsley, lettuce and others are excellent sources of calcium, and contain many additional health advantages. 

This will help you to also diversify your sources of calcium, which is important to maintain your health.

4. Take the right Vitamin A – 

Vitamin A appears in two forms. 

The first is retinol, which appears in animal products, such as the liver. 

The second is beta carotene and it is the way the vitamin comes from plants, especially orange vegetables like carrot, squash or sweet potato. 

Studies have found that consuming too much of retinol vitamin A raises the risk of bone fraction, while vitamin A in its plant form, Beta Carotene, does not damage the bones.

5. Strengthen your bones with Vitamin K – 

This vitamin helps activate 3 essential proteins that are crucial for bone health. 

As in the case of calcium that comes from green vegetables, vitamin K also comes from the same sources. 

Two daily helpings of green vegetables a day give the body as much as it needs.

6. Physical activity strengthens the bones – 

Sorry, you knew this was coming and its of very little surprise. 

When we carry out a physical activity, we create pressure on our skeleton. 

While it is bad to overdo it, a moderate pressure is actually very health, as it sends the body signals to create more bone cells, increase the density and make it stronger. 

Operate the body with moderation, and don’t go to far with it.

7. Eat fish – 

100 grams of sardines contain an amazing amount of over 400mg of calcium! 

It’s recommended to consume the fresh fish of course and not the canned variety. 

The little bones are also edible and contain a lot of calcium. Sardines, like the salmon, are also a great source of vitamin D.

8. Reduce your consumption of carbonated drinks and treats – 

The acid that exists in some of the popular carbonated drinks raises the amount of acid in the blood. 

To compensate, the body uses the body’s minerals, including calcium. 

If the calcium is not readily available in the blood, the body will take it from the bones and this will hard the density and strength of the bone. 

There is no problem drinking them once in a while, but if they are a daily habit then you can do a lot of damage to your bones over time.

9. Avoidance measures – 

Like a lot of other health problems, we return to smoking. 

Studies have shown that smoking harms bone density, as well as over consumption of alcohol and caffeine.

10. Resource allocation – 

We must carry out our calcium consumption in a smart way. 

Our body absorbs calcium best when it is no more than 500mg at one time. 

So, if you are planning on consuming a large amount of calcium rich foods or drinks, try to perhaps divide the meal or eat again later, to make sure the body is able to absorb all you are giving it.
