Embrace the solitude

“How much better is silence;  the cup of coffee, the table. How much better to sit by myself like a solitary sea-bird that open its wings on the stake” – Virginia Woolf (The waves)

Solitude gives birth to the original us. There is  a pleasure in the pathless woods, there is a rapture in a lonely shore, there is a society none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in it’s roar; I love not people less, but nature more.

Guard well your spare moments, they are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in useful life.

Cake themselves in Make-up

Caked herself in make-up

“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone” – Coco Chanel

“The most beautiful make up of a woman is passion. But,  cosmetics are easier to buy” – Yelv Saint Laurent

Dear Doves!

I know how much we love doing ” make up”!

But,  there is a difference between blushing little rouges on your cheeks,  kohl and eyeshadow to highlight your preety eyes and dipping your whole face down on the foundation and colour palette.

But,  it is one of my petpeeves when I see women (girls) apply 70 percent of their make up kit in one go (:D). Perhaps,  you make fun of yourself in public. And,  sometime it’s annoying for men (sssshhhh). Please,  do not apply too much of mascara that looks like thick spider web..don’t apply red and orange lipstick you have broad or stretched lips,  else you look like joker of a circus. Don’t apply too much white or silver shimmer on under your eyebrows. .you look like witch on a broom. Do you know the reason why street hookers wear too much make-up?  Right?

Make up is,meant to define women’s best features and conceal those which are less desirable.  There is no need of being nasty.

Try to look natural even under your make up; and glow from within 💜💜💜💜

 

 

Meditation

meditation

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.” ― Voltaire

Why are you so afraid of silence? Silence is the root of everything. If you spiral into its void, a hundred voices will thunder messages you long to hear. ~Rumi

KEY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION:

  • It lowers oxygen consumption.
  • It decreases respiratory rate.
  • It increases blood flow and slows the heart rate.
  • Increases exercise tolerance in heart patients.
  • Leads to a deeper level of relaxation.
  • Good for people with high blood pressure as it brings the B.P. to normal.
  • Reduces anxiety attacks by lowering the levels of blood lactate.
  • Decreases muscle tension (any pain due to tension) and headaches.

  • Helps in chronic diseases like allergies , arthritis etc.
  • Reduces Pre- menstrual Syndrome.

  • Enhances the immune system. Research has revealed that meditation increases activity of ‘natural-killer cells’, which kill bacteria and cancer cells
  • Also reduces activity of viruses and emotional distress.

According to a fascinating New York Times article, researchers have shown that daily meditation-like thought can shift brain activity toward “positive emotional states…that make us more likely to engage the world rather than to withdraw from it.”♡
