How to Make the most of the 21 Days LockDown!

Hello, how are you? It’s been a really long time since I last wrote to you. I wonder why I stopped. Anyways, today I had this important idea to make the most of this lockdown that was just announced yesterday by our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi. So I thought, that I’d share it with you.

Honestly, I feel like the world was not ready for the Corona virus and we were also not ready for this 21 day lockdown that seems like a punishment to so many.

I know it’s tough but it’s the need of the situation. Also now that we got no other option, isn’t is better to actually make the most of this time instead of spending it cribbing and being sad?

21 days is the perfect time for creating a new habit. You can implement so many new good habits in your life. For me, it’s already been 9 days in self quarantine and now 21 days are added to it. So it’s going to be a month long thing for me. To be honest I’m actually quiet enjoying this time at home doing all the things I love and spending it productively.

So, here’s 10 things you can do during this 21 day lock down to make the most of your time and to create some new good habits that will be super beneficial.

1. Home Workouts

Staying at home can be boring and not being able to do any movement is not good too. So now is the best time to start working out at home. You can either do HIIT workouts, yoga, stretching or any other workout you want to do. You can simply youtube home workouts and you’ll find thousands of it. Now is the time to get in better shape and lose the weight you wanted to. You have all the time to focus on fitness. Me too, I have been doing regular workouts at home since a week now. I do 50 burpees, 50 squats, some skipping and stretching and resistance band workouts and trust me it feels so good. By the end of 21 days if you have been following this genuinely, you will then have created a habit of working out Sand come out fitter than you were before 21 days.

2. Read Books/ Gain Knowledge/ learn new skills

Now is also the time to start reading all the books you have been wanting to read since a long time. Once completely engrossed in a book, you lose track of time completely. I have been currently reading Ikigai and how to Ikigai. Some book recommendations from me are 1. Ikigai 2. How to Ikigai 3. Secret 4. The Giant within you. 5. Alchemist and other Paulo coelho books

If book reading is not your thing, then you can make the most of the Internet to research and learn more about topics that interest you. Could be about a country, about some science topic, or about an electronic gadget, whatever interests you and you have no idea about, Google it or YouTube it and learn about it.

Also, this is the perfect time to learn new skills. Use the Internet to learn what you want to learn. Maybe learn new makeup techniques, learn a musical instrument, learn how to dance, learn how to cook. Anything you want to learn , now is the time to do it!

3. Clean Eating

Since you’re at home now and eating from out should be completely cut out keeping the current situation in mind, this is the best thing to do. Eating at home will give you a detox and make your system clean and also make your immunity stronger. It will also break your habit of eating junk if you have it. Even though you don’t enjoy it, why don’t you take it as challenge? Also if you want, see what favourite or yummy dish can you prepare at home to eat and try making yourself happy. Trust me with the kind of lives we live, this is the kind of detox we all definitely needed.

4. Watch new movies and shows

The best thing to keep yourself entertained is to watch movies and shows. There are plenty new ones to watch. Chose the ones you want. You can watch it on Netflix, on amazon prime, hotstar, google play movies or any other subscription you know. But this is the best thing to do to keep yourself from being bored and will also make time run faster.

5. Give a shot to TikTok!

Well I’m not really a fan of this app, but I have to admit that when it comes to entertainment and passing time, it can be of great help.
You can keep Dragging through so many videos and also try out the new tiktok dances and challenges to keep yourself occupied and entertained. Give it a shot if you’d like .

6. Self Pamper

No better time than now to self pamper. If you never had the time to do it before, now you have all the time in the world. Also if you have never tried pampering yourself at home, give it a shot. You will love it. It relaxes so much and will give you a break from this corona stress!
pick up a face mask or a scrub, or a hair mask and start pampering yourself . All the more better, you can also ask your moms or grandparents for some great gharelu nuskas n try them out.
After 21 days, you will be super groomed and pampered. Trust me it feels so good .

7. Organise your home/ room/ wardrobe

So many of us have our wardrobes, our rooms and our houses in a mess. We just ignored it all this while, because well we didn’t have the time. But now, since you need ideas to kill time and the boredom. Why don’t you organise and de clutter your home?
one of the days, take the time and clean out and organise whatever you feel is in a mess. You will not only be making the most of your time, you will also feel so good after seeing everything neat and clean. You’ll feel the positive vibes you know. Cleanliness is next to Godliness!

8. Get in touch with your friends.

Now no matter how many things you find to keep yourself busy through this lockdown. Nothing can fill up the void of your friends, right ?
Why don’t you call your friend every now and then and talk to them or just use watsapp video call and video call them to see their face. Let’s admit it their faces can light up our lives.
Also if you want the whole group to come together, I just got to know about an app called “House Party” which a friend told me about. Your group can join in and all of you can video chat and play games simultaneously on that app together. Totally recommend it. If you know any other apps like these, let me know.

9. Strengthen the family Bond.

Now that all of us are stuck at home. Isn’t it the best time to strengthen your family bonds? Honestly our lives have been so chaotic and in the past whenever we got time on weekends, most of us decided to spend it with our friends or just party with them. Family life has been really compromised.
This is the best time to spend time with your family. Eat meals together, play board games, do movie nights everyday, or do a nice house party at home and dance together, pray together or try out family pamper sessions( like all put on face masks n all together) Trust me it’s fun.
Make your time at home a wonderful one. It’s time to give your parents the love and attention they deserve.

10. Take a nice bath, everyday!

During this time, the most important thing to focus on is self hygiene. I know a lot of you must be thinking we are home all the time so it’s not necessary to have a bath everyday especially the lazy ones and the boys. Taking a bath will not only let u kill some time in the day but it will also keep you clean. Take a nice bath you know, use a body scrub, a nice bath bomb session and have a nice pampering shower. Trust me, it will relax you and make you feel so good.

So that’s it. I hope you found this helpful. If you like this, Don’t forget to share it with your friends and others.
We are all in this together and we will over come this.
“Remember that in everything, no matter what, you can always find something positive.”
At the end of this we shall all come out stronger and better than before!
Sending you and your family lots of love.

Till then, stay home stay safe .

Doha, Qatar- affordable destination for Indians !

 Hello everyone,
Today I’m going to talk about an affordable international destination you must include on your list for a budget friendly yet a fun destination you could travel to. It’s Doha, Qatar!

When you think of an affordable international destination for vacations, the first 2 destination that come to your mind are Dubai & Thailand. Of course!

But no one thinks about Qatar. Qatar is a Middle East country just 3 and a half hours away from India. You could hop onto a flight, preferably Indigo airlines and get yourself a ticket between 16,000₹-24,000₹ depending on how prior you book it and in what season you’re planning to visit.

Also, you can easily get a hotel room or an airbnb for  5-7 days within 30,000₹. The food and travel also are not that expensive. Per person you would spend approximately 40,000-50,000₹ including flight, stay, food and a bit of shopping


Now, in 2019 I have been there twice. Once in February and now recently in November. Both for 1 week. I’d like to highlight, the best months to visit Qatar are from November to March. ( December to March are the coolest months, so make sure to carry your jackets if you want to walk out even in the afternoons)


A lot of people don’t even think of it as a place worth visiting. But going there twice, I can assure you it’s worth a visit once in your lifetime for sure.
There’s more to it than just a place where Qatar Airways crew are based. You just need to know how to plan your itinerary.


Here’s all the places you must visit and the food you must try to really have a wonderful experience in Doha, Qatar.

Express it with black!!

Well hello ,its been a long time hope ypu are doing well:)

So today I’m going to be talking about the color “Black” which I’m sure is the favourite or the go to colour of most of us.

I don’t know if you have ever heard this liner from your mother or grandmother when your going for some special event or if its a festival or someones wedding , “don’t wear black today , its not lucky!” Well I hear it a lot of times from my mom , but I don’t take it into consideration at all because Black is my absolute favourite and 90% of my wardrobe is full of black !

Black is a color that suits every skin tone , everybody type and also no matter what the color of your hair ,which makes it all the more favourable. Black in itself is the strongest and most attractive color of all the colors and also if your wearing a black outfit ,you can play with different colors when it comes to accessorizing  to add more look & glamour to it . Also im sure you have noticed it but a black outfit is never a miss when you wear it for a special occasion it makes you attract eyeballs towards yourself  for sure. So next time your confused about what to wear to a party ,for someone’s wedding or for a special event where you need to make a lasting impression express it with black!!

Attaching pictures below of a simple black gown that I got from this brand called “Miss Chase India” and styled it up with a simple gold bohemian neck piece to make it look extremely elegant.
