8 Random Acts of Kindness

14 Nov, 2012 0 comments All life areas

The goal of random acts of kindness is to bring a smile to someone’s face, whether you know them, or they are a stranger you pass on the street. The idea of kindness is so subjective, it could mean an entirely different set of things to each of us. But what binds the whole structure of kindness together is the relative sense of selflessness and the pure joy of giving without expecting anything in return.

Bali, India, Italy: Your Search for Love and Freedom can begin at Home

02 Oct, 2012 0 comments Health

Elizabeth Gilbert’s memorable memoir Eat, Pray, Love is the story of a woman’s search for love and freedom miles away from her home, in foreign lands. While the desire to travel and be like Gilbert might be hidden in all of us, not everyone can afford the time and resources to head anywhere. But that doesn’t mean the search for love and freedom stops there, on the contrary home is the best place to begin. The idea rests on the understanding that the place we live in is invariably the closest, more or less most comfortable environment available and plays a key role in shaping our lives. This is not an epic journey on the road of self-discovery we’re talking about. It’s very much rooted in our daily lives as ordinary people. It’s about taking on life right from where it begins – your home.

Be it friends, family, work or health, we’ve all experienced worry in some form or the other. While saying the words “Everything will be okay” is often used as a quick mechanism to take your mind off things, the problem still continues to persist and we all know that. So what is the solution for worries? The answer often lies in attitude. Your worry can be quite different from your colleague’s or at times can be the exact same thing. And don’t we all find ourselves saying that he or she somehow must have an easy way out because the effects of the problem don’t seem to bother them as much. But is that so? Every person is different in dealing with problems and worries, and sometimes the answer can lie in the way you look at things. Perspective can change a lot more than you think.

One cannot emphasize enough on the importance of being open to new experiences in life. Adding the adventurous streak to an everyday routine can not only make your life interesting, it can also help you learn. There is something different and exciting to gain from every adventure, enabling you to get important insights into things about yourself that you’d been unaware of, and to test your strengths and weaknesses. Your next adventure could change your life and alter it in unimaginable ways. While you might experience new things as and when they come, it’s never too late to have a list of your own adventures to try. A bucket list of adventures will give you a head-start if you’ve been trying to add adventure to your life but can’t zero in on one particular idea.

Social Service can Change your Life: The Challenge of the Unknown

26 Jan, 2012 0 comments All life areas

Anyone who has ever engaged in any form of volunteer or social service with a non profit organization or an NGO would know the vast amount of satisfaction charitable or philanthropic work can bring. The beauty of volunteering to bring about some change in the societies we live in is inherent in the understanding that change is after all in our hands. Be it in the social or personal arena, the power to effect change in our lives as well as others’ lives lies with the individual self. Social Service is an extension of this concept. When we speak of social service, our minds instantly go on the lines of working at an orphanage or organizing a petition to save the environment or something similar. This is social service to the regular citizen who doesn’t have the bent of mind to invest all his time in this work and become a full time social service volunteer, but at the same time is willing to find time to give back to the community. This lies at the heart of social service. The intent and the act of finding time for something that is purely for the benefit of someone else is different experience for everyone and has the ability to transform lives. Here are 5 ways in which Social Service can change your life:
