Motivational Monday Episode 1 – UNPLUG

Those complex mathematical problems that never seem to solve, logical reasoning that doesn’t make logic to you anymore, English that almost seems like French and that never ending pile of current affairs. Have all these started haunting you in your dreams? And you have spent days studying and nights awake revising but still didn’t get any success? Do you feel that you have put in so many efforts but you are still far from placement? Are you unable to find where you are lagging behind?

If all the questions above have a yes as an answer then you need to relax and take a deep breath!!!

The bottleneck competition has led us to study continuously for hours and hours. It is good to put in so many efforts to achieve your goals. But it sometimes takes a toll on your physical as well as mental health. Your mind is a part of your body and it requires rest too. So take a break and give the most important organ of your body some time-out.

Now, by taking a break here does not at all means completely ignoring your studies. It only means to slow down a bit. Don’t exhaust yourself with long study hours. Instead, just analyse yourself. Analyse your study routine and modify it to something better. Because let’s face it, monotonous routines can give you a seriously boring personality and none of us wants that. The motive is to enjoy the whole learning process. Burdening yourself will make you anxious and anxiety leads to irritation and less productivity. Whereas we need to be as much as productive as one can be.

The IBPS schedule will take a high gear in August. So, this is the perfect time to rejuvenate yourself so that you can get back with full determination and mental readiness to face the challenges that await.

Give yourself time to breathe a little. Let your brain and heart rest a little. The world won’t stop for you but you will catch up. Listen to some of your favourite music or dance your heart out. Basically, do anything that makes you feel happy. Free your mind from the stress of competition.

Plan your strategy in a fresh way. Find out your strongest and weakest sections and scheme out your time table accordingly and you will be back with new energy ready to face the tests. Always keep in mind that your ultimate goal is to achieve the success that gives you happiness more than any monetary support. This will help you put your heart into whatever you are doing. And of course, the mind leads you to achievement but the combination of mind and heart lead you to make yourself better at it with each passing day.

To sum this up, we need to understand that rest is as important as activeness for your mind and body so never underestimate the power of rest.

An unforgettable interview

More than 24 hours and I can’t stop thinking about it! Probably because it was the most interesting thing that happened to me in the past few weeks, eh, months. Yes, I have a pretty boring life. Now before curiosity kills you, let me tell you that I am talking about the interview I attended yesterday, exactly 24 hours and 53 minutes ago.

Interview? Interesting? What are you talking about girl?

Well, the presence of a clumsy version of me can make the most boring and menacing thing like an interview, a laughing exercise. Everyone had a good laugh in that room. The only difference was that they were laughing at me, on my face and I was laughing at myself, after leaving the room. I was embarrassed at my performance. Continue reading

I Wish

Sometimes I wish I could be a little kid again,

So whenever life gets tough I could always play pretend.

I wanna go back to the time when Santa did exist,

And my wishes were a long list.

When Disney world was the best place to be,

When only my mom was the closest to me.

When my biggest problem was learning to write my name,

People didn’t change and my friends were the same.

Every time I was sad or had a bad day,

I could just run to mumma and it would all be okay.

I wanna go back to no hurt no pain; just laughter,

When everyone always lived happily ever after.

Happiness – A peep into my Thoughts

Are you happy? Ask yourself that question again and again, till your heart answers you. Because the mind will always give you a biased answer.

Breathe in. Breathe out.

Happiness is not the smile that people see on your face. It is something that your eyes reflect. And it is not measurable by the things you own or the life you live. You may have all the wealth in the world but if you cry yourself to sleep at night, you are not happy. You may be surrounded with the most awesome people but if you still feel lonely, you are not happy. You may have the perfect job, but if you want to run away from your office in the middle of the work, you are not happy. You may have Mr Perfect as your life partner but if your heart still does a flip-flop on seeing your high school crush, you are not really happy.

Then what is happiness? Can someone really define it? Can someone find it? It’s a huge world. So, shall we pack our bags and go out in search of happiness? Continue reading
