I’m reading books that help you find focus in life, help you feel much more at peace, and help you in making the best of the situation in hand because it is not much you can do what is happening outside your house. So, you might as well try and create a peaceful environment at home, so that everybody has pacified nerves and you don’t feel as if the world is going to end.



    So, I’m reading the book which a lot of might have heard, and it’s called Zen- Art of Simple Living. So, Zen is all about changing your habits, ideas and it gives you hints for living a happy life. Happiness is a typical question because we all have different benchmarks for it. But for me I think if I’m at peace I’m more or less happy. If I’m not at peace, I’m not happy. The same might work for a lot of you, and this book gives you simple tips on how to be at peace, how to feel that life is good and this is not the end world, how to remove all your negative thoughts from your life.

We might wake up every morning thinking that everything will be fine by the end of the day everything is going down.



    * You should make time for emptiness

    * Take out some time for yourself, shut out everything and just relax

    * Shut down your devices for some time and have peace within yourself

    * Start a habit of reaching everywhere 15 minutes earlier so that you don’t get anxiety of getting late

    * Wake up 15 minutes earlier to your alarm time

    * Do a little bit of stretching after waking up

    * Enjoy your favorite cup of tea or coffee in the morning, and just relax

    * Don’t rush for other works that are pending, make a mental note of what you want to do today

    * Enjoy the morning air, it makes you feel alive

    * When you come home; don’t throw your shoes all over the house, line them properly

    * Do introspection, discard mental and physical baggage

    * Give your unused clothes or shoes to someone who is needy

    * Be kind, focus on good things in life

    * Say thank you and sorry to people you have been wanted to say from a long time

    * Sort out things, organize yourself and move on

    * Organize your workplace and desk, don’t make it look untidy

    * Give yourself a break, enjoy your favorite beverage at your favorite place

    Hi, this is Fitness Radio Episode 19, and you are back with Priya Dogra. Today, I am here to talk about something very important that many of us are ignoring amid the serious Coronavirus pandemic.  Yes, the situation is getting worse, and we already are reading a lot about it from the past several months.



    But this time, I want to talk about how to properly care for your dry hands caused by over-sanitization and washing amids the Coronavirus threat.  I am the type of person who is very fond of soft and nice-looking hands. Generally, what we do is in our attempt to look pretty and presentable, we tend to forget our hands and feet. So I made a habit of keeping a hand cream in my bag, on my bedside table, at my desk, and lots of people used to wonder at it, but honestly I didn’t care.



    It’s a nice habit to pamper your hands, and to make them look nice and smell nice. Since the pandemic came in, we are washing our hands all day long, and then we are sanitizing them.  Sanitizing them to the extent that our phones are not recognizing our fingerprints.  Even if when we try to use our hands to do other things, our hands feel so dry and lifeless, as if the outer layer has been peeled off.  Washing is important, but then we need to take care of our hands too.



    Also, there are many reports which suggest that too much sanitization is not actually good. Eventually, a sanitizer penetrates the first layer of the skin of our hands, and somewhere there will be some side effects. So ensure you are using a good sanitizer, and ensure that you are keeping your hands soft and taking care of them too.



    I have some basic tips that you can do, and for that you don’t have to buy a fancy cream or something which is expensive. There are so many things that you can do at home.



    * Take a small spoon of Malai/milk cream and just rub it over your hands, and just let it be

    * Have Omega 3 supplements

    * Have Vitamin D and Vitamin C supplements too

    * Add ½ teaspoon of baking soda in water with you are washing your dishes or start wearing washing gloves

    * Massage your hands with equal parts of dried coconut and sugar, after washing your dishes, do it every two days

    * Keep a bottle of your favorite body oil near the sink where you wash your hands, and apply two drops of it every time after you finish washing your hands

    * Put a thick layer of Vaseline on your dry hands/feet, then wear gloves/socks overnight

    * Apply sweet almond oil

    * You can use aloe vera creams or gel

    * Stay hydrated, drink a lot of water

    * Use a good sunscreen, especially when driving



    These were some handy tips to take care of dry hands and skin that we are facing nowadays. Take out some quality time for yourself, pamper yourself, and give yourself a home manicure or pedicure. If you don’t have time for this, just moisturize your hands, or put a drop of lavender or any essential oil in Malai or whatever oil you are using to keep your hands soft. Believe me, when your hands are smelling nice, your day is made.



    Till then take care of your health, mental health, stay positive, and be safe.

    Hi, this is Fitness Radio Episode 18, and you are back with Priya Dogra. So there has been a survey done in which parents of children of all ages are asked that are they ready to send their children back to schools. So I thought that’s the burning question for every parent today. Since the lockdown opened, and I have children of my own, I am worried what are we going to do? Because everybody is worried about every other thing, but nobody is thinking about our state of mind. Are we really ready to send children back to schools?



    So from the online survey, the figure which came out says that 90% of parents are unwilling to send their children to schools back. And I am happened to be one of them. 56% said that they will watch for a month or two and then they will send them back. 8% said that yes they will send kids back to schools. One day the school will open then, what are we going to do after 50 days of lockdown? There is no vaccine, there is no cure, there are clustered areas with positive Coronavirus cases and cases are still coming.



    I don’t think we just have two choices, whether to send them or whether to not send them, because education is important and how long we can keep them at home? But then the debate actually comes down to dropping a year.  Because when the schools are open teachers will not provide them online classes. They will teach them in the physical classes, and you left with no choice other than sending them back to schools.



    In the same survey, 64% of parents said that they are not going to send their children to social gatherings like birthday parties, pajama parties, or group studies. So when we are not comfortable sending them to each other’s home then how can we send them to schools?  That’s a very valid question. Only 1% of the parents said that they would be comfortable taking their children to malls again. I will not be. What is the burning need to go to a mall or a public place, which is air-conditioned, where people are walking out in the whole day? Why? What is the urgency?



    35% of parents said they would be willing to let their children to go out to the parks, to play with their friends, till the time they maintain social distancing. 45% of parents said that they will not let their kids play any sport this year. Then what how our post lockdown will look like? I have no clue. How will schools manage a mishap of a school person or child due to a positive case? 1% of the parents also said that they will not be taking their kids to any holidays. It makes sense to me.



    Nothing is important than our kids’ security. So please think thousand times before taking the call to send your children back to school this year. I am hoping for better times and more clarity.



    Till then be safe and stay healthy!

    Episode 17: How to Find “Me Time” During The Pandemic

    Hi, this is Fitness Radio Episode 17, and you are back with Priya Dogra. So today I am going to talk about how to make time for yourself in the noisy homes we are living in, during this lockdown. There is really no ‘me time’ for mommies and people like you and me. Even for daddies. So what do we do? We either go insane and become robots, where we are doing one task after the other, where we keep balancing our role between online classes, household work, office work, or taking care of all the family members, and we forget about ourselves and importance of me time.



    Firstly, 'me time' is not supposed to make you feel guilty. Believe me, when you will schedule a slot for yourself, which is called me time actually, your productivity increases, your relationships get better and it also reboots your brain. If you feel you are snapping at everybody, losing patience or you are not feeling like your old self then it’s high time for you to think to spend some time with yourself. So what you need to do for that? Firstly, you need to schedule the ‘me time’. I am not somebody who can do random things; I do that when I am in a break or when I know I have the leisure of free time. But otherwise, in these times I like to schedule things.



    What do you do in that ‘me time’? Firstly, you switch off all your gadgets like your phone, your desktop, or laptop. Sit in the most favorite corner of your house and just stretch your legs, and just shut out the world.  Forget about what you are going to cook in dinner, what you are going to pack for a breakfast tomorrow, what you are going to wash in the machine tomorrow, just forget about everything without feeling any guilt. This is your time to focus on yourself. If you are really tired, you can take a nap, relax and just rejuvenate your energy.



    Believe me, these power naps, which are in a jiffy really feel good. Also, remember when we used to pen down poetry, sketch, or draw things just to express ourselves. Probably this ‘me time’ is the right time to recall your old hobbies and create something out of the box. Those were the things that gave you actual satisfaction or pleasure, which no amount of any other thing or activity can do.



    Give time to your forgotten hobbies. Do some painting, gardening, or just take out some old albums to revisit old memories. There is so much you can do.



    If you think expressing yourself makes you feel better, then why don’t you write a journal? Pen down your few thoughts on your favorite diary, or on your phone. Pen down how was your day, and you will feel much better.



    If you want to pamper yourself, download your favorite movie and watch that. One more thing you can do relax your soul is to stop having those jiffy showers. A shower is supposed to be a relaxation time. Pamper your body, buy some fancy shampoo and shops and just relax your mind and body. Breathe in and just relax, because that’s the best time when nobody will bother you.



    If you like to eat, take some time to give yourself a treat by cooking your favorite dessert or a cup of coffee. Just make a batch of ice-cream you have been waiting to have and share it with the family. These small treats will rejuvenate you and will give you a boost of energy.



    It’s all about feeling good inside. No matter how many good clothes we wear, if we don’t feel good from inside then everything feel...

    Hi, this is Fitness Radio Episode 16, and you are back with Priya Dogra. So toady’s podcast is very special to me, and I am sure many of you will be able to relate to it. Today we are going to say thank you to all the people whom we ignored or took for granted. In this lockdown, I have realized that we should appreciate the existence of people who play such an important role in our lives. When they are there we don’t even realize their contribution they are doing to make our life comfortable.



    To start off the list, I want to give a sincere thanks to all the people who work in our homes. The maids, the cleaners, the driver, the gardeners, the cooks, and the list go on.  We just take them for granted, we think, they are paid to do things they are doing, and we are paying them. It’s not the right attitude.  We get paid for our work in our workplaces, but then why we sulk when the boss shouts on us, and ask us to lay back late? The same rule we should apply to the home workers also. They are also a human being, they also have to go back to their families and play s many parallel roles. So, big thank you to them for bearing our moods and tantrums. We generally take out the boss’s anger on them. We shout on them when our children make the mess for no reason. We all should thank them for bearing with us and not leave us. We should thank them for coming to work every single day so that we can go to work.



    So after the lockdown when they come back, remember, this they are there as a fellow human being but not as somebody we have bought just because we are paying them. Be grateful for them for being there and helping us out for keeping our house clean and for making it function properly.
