How I Deal With Anxiety On A Daily Basis

I recently did a post on how anxiety impacts my daily life and a lot of you asked me about how I deal with it. While therapy is the key to dealing with anxiety, there are multiple things I do on a daily basis to help me cope with my day-to-day anxiety. These aren’t things…

My May Shopping List

When May started, I challenged myself to stick to a budget this month. If you’ve been following me for a bit, you might know that I’ve started my own small business which means that I’m practically living off of my savings (and crashing at my parent’s home). I’m also trying to be more sustainable and…

Old Shoes Wear Best – Spring Cleaning

I spent the weekend doing what I called “spring cleaning” though we’re deep into summer here in New Delhi. It just felt like what a “main character” from a movie would do. I finally got to sorting through some of the shoes that I wear regularly. Weirdly, I get sentimentally attached to some clothes and…

It Is A Beautiful World, uhh, Patriarchal World

Note: This post has been in writing for a while now. I wrote some bits of it a year back but never completed it. It is a long post. These are some snippets from some of the conversations I have on a daily basis as a small business owner. Most vendors I interact with assume…

My First Love

Disclaimer: This is a very random post and not sponsored. 😛 The year was 2011. My family and I were travelling through Egypt. Our tour stopped at a local bazaar for shopping. As we scrutinized the shops wondering where we should go with all the vendors trying to catch our attention, we heard the words…

An Adult’s List of Favourite Animated Movies

The first animated movie I saw was the original Lion King. I remember howling through bits of the movie. The first animated movie I saw in the hall was Toy Story and I was sold! I am not big on movies anymore. The only genres of movies I watch are – horror and animated. While…

May 2022 Life Update: Trying Out New Hobbies & Skills

After spending April in purgatory, I decided to get my life going again and pick up some new hobbies and skills this month. My way of working around my anxious phases has been to just be lazy and watch re-runs of favourite shows. But this time I want to try keeping myself extremely busy and…

Sustainable Gifting Ideas For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, the 8th of May. While I am not a fan of celebrating these Hallmark holidays, I do think that mothers are the most underappreciated people across the globe and hence, deserve a day of pampering and love. I decided to combine my love for being more sustainable with this holiday…

Dating Life: What I Want In A Man?

While growing up I had this long checklist of what my ‘prince charming’ will be like – tall, dark, dimples, rich, funny, etc. But over the past 3-4 years, the list has gotten a lot shorter and way more practical. The men I’ve dated have helped me identify the qualities I’d appreciate in the person…

My April Reads

My target for the rest of 2022 is to read atleast 3-4 books every month. The problem is that I usually don’t pick up a book till halfway through the month, then start panic reading books and then usually fall in love with the book and spend entire nights reading. I want to read more…
