Guess what, we’re already 2 months into the new year and you’re lucky enough to still stuck by the resolution you made on the 1st Jan. Well I may just give you ways on how to break them? Want to give them a try?

1. Blame Your Circumstances


My girlfriend keeps too much junk food at home!” OR “My Mom makes such yummy food that I can’t resist it!” Hey, the people around you didn’t ask you to make your resolutions you made them on your own! No reason should stop you from achieving what you need! When you blame the environment, you are a prisoner of those “things” and will be until those “things” change.

2. Going Too Hard Too Soon


Do you really think you’ll be able to dedicate 4 hours daily to your workouts? It might seem like not challenging yourself, but if you truly want to achieve a resolution, set one that’s easy to tackle from day one, say half an hour of workout daily will make your more productive! And you could always add another 30 minutes to it if you feel like. Success is more achievable when you can scale up to a more difficult resolution and you’ll get the much-needed boost of self-esteem.

3. Listen to That Negative Inner Voice



Hey, you can have that ice-cream, only one won’t affect you!” We all have that little voice inside our head that makes us break resolutions. That Ice-cream may just give you the craving of having another and then your diet’s gone down your belly!

4. New Year… New You!


New Year... New You!” is just a myth! It’s the same you but with hell lot of positive energy and also a hell lot of anxiety of meeting your resolutions! Be the old you, but with a high level of motivation to do something new! People who lose their “motivation”, try to wait for it to come back, but mind you often it never does.

5. Letting Resolutions Govern You


Don’t be too focused on achieving your resolutions that you lose sight on better opportunities, don’t let your resolutions govern you! This will make the changing process less enjoyable and more of a routine. Remember, tweaking or even discontinuing a resolution if we see an even better direction to head in isn’t wrong. Resolutions are meant to inspire us, make us feel more alive!

Let’s face it... Resolutions are actually meant to be broken… Happiness is something that needs to be constant.

To Food...With Love

Dear Food,
            I Love You! Sorry for hitting that straight to your face, but who doesn't! I had no idea on how I could just begin this letter! But just want to let you know, I LOVE YOU! 

Every day after a hard day working, you've always been there to cheer me up. Just the thought of you gives me butterflies in my stomach! You always smell good, look good and Yum... Taste Good too. Without you, I would have the shittiest life anyone could even imagine. Well probably not, cause I won't have shit! But never mind... When I don't have you around, all I can do is think about you with an open watery mouth.

Icecream

I don't remember how and when we met, but ever since you've been part of my life, you've never disappointed me! At times of sorrow, you've been there in the form of a large ice cream cup. In happiness, you've been my favorite pasta. When it's movie time you've been popcorn, and during date nights, the amazing things around the candle! I just can't imagine a life without you!

Pizza

And remember the time you were a pizza! Ahha... What an amazing day that was! And the mornings were just satisfying! *cough* *cough*

You know that I love it when you're all dressed up for me in that sizzling hot Vada Pav! And never stop teasing me in the nooks and corners of Mumbai's streets... How I hate you for that! (You know I love you for that!)

Blueberry Cheesecake

Hey, do you remember, when I had to choose between my (ex)girlfriend and you (that blueberry cheesecake)? You knew it very well I would choose you. I could guess it from all that gestures you made at me! You naughty thing!

I'd like to make a confession before we end! I'd just like to let you know that I've always preferred you when you're nice and warm... The colder and chilled version just "beeps" up my throat!

I know I don't say it to you enough, but I do love you! And I just want thank you for being there. I know I can always count on you. Thank you for making this evil world a better place...

Hugs and Kisses! 😘😘

With Love,
Bhavish Shah...

Hector Beverages, the maker that brought in a trunk full of memories, nostalgia and most importantly some refreshing juices under its ethnic Indian beverage brand Paper Boat, has come up with yet another one of my cravings, the Chikki!

When Live Mint asked Neeraj Kakkar, chief executive of Hector Beverages Pvt. Ltd. about the reason behind choosing a Chikki over any other food product to enter the snack category, he says, "Our overall thesis is that we are protectors of traditional recipes. We intend to keep launching old, traditional recipes in contemporary packing. We did this first on the drinks side because of our background in beverages."

"So chikki is the first snack we are launching and are contemporizing it", he adds.


So, what's a chikki you ask? Chikki is the perfect concoction of peanuts and jaggery, made to make crisp, crunchy and sweet. And the Paper Boat Chikki provides the same desi taste of the chikki you'd probably get from Lonavala's Maganlal Chikki! To top it all, the authentic taste of chikki hasn’t been tampered at all.


And worry not, all this is available for just Rs 10! For this price, you get a Chikki slab smaller than a smartphone.

I've got one more good news, coming summer, we may soon get a taste of Paper Boat Aam Papad 😋

Nothing in this world compares to the comfort and security of having someone just hold your hand.
- Richelle E. Goodrich
People have always been in search for that one person who can make them feel warm when the harsh cold of loneliness sets in. Of course, you need, someone who makes you feel comfortable and with whom we can just hold hands and stare at the stars....

Holding hands isn't just meant to be a significance a newly cropped up love, but it should be the gesture of affection to anyone who may need it. Holding hands can have many different meanings, depending on who you are holding hands with. It symbolises different feelings and thoughts, depending on the situation, or the person, so let's just know about various meanings of holding hands!

Holding Hands in Relationships


If you're in an intimate relationship holding hands may seem as just a simple gesture, but it screams mutual consent of affection. It may have a big impact on your relationship and symbolises the connection you have. It is also a message you send to your better half letting them know, how proud you are to have them in your life.

Holding Hands with Friends


Holding hands of your friends is a symbol, that shows how bonded you'll are. It is a sign of respect or deep friendship and may not indicate any type of romantic relationship when it comes to the same sex or even opposite sex. Holding hands may also just indicate friendship and sense of comfort the person have between them.

Holding Hands With Family Members


Once, I was holding my mother's hand for crossing a busy road together we crossed the road to ensure she was okay. And I just continued holding hands afterwards, as we entered the vegetable market. Later that day, my mother shared how she'd never really held my hands since the time I entered my teenage. That's when I learned about the importance of showing affection, through just a simple gesture of holding hands.

Remember, in hard times family members will often reach out for each other's hand as a gesture to comfort each other. It indicates support and compassion and the huge connection the family has.

The belief that people do not appreciate simplicity, in my opinion, is prevaricated. Keep in mind, holding hands costs nothing. But this simple act of holding a person's hand might just save a life! So #LetsMakeHoldingHandsASimpleImpactfulGestureAgain :P

Think about the last time you held hands. Who was the person? Why did you hold hands? What is your fondest memory of holding hands? Share your views in the comments.
