You may have every ingredient to be happy in life…. Yet you may not be happy.
REASON??SURPISINGLY, YOU KNOW IT WHY…
There could be a person, thing or a behaviour in your life ,which you are aware of, that you could be over obsessive about.
That makes your day Gloomy.
Makes you feel low… Rejected… Suicidal…
Everything around you may seem useless… You may start feeling detached from your near and dear ones because of this obsession.
Understand it ,that this is not sorrow…
Real sorrow kills…
You’ve made this look like a sorrow and want to kill yourself.
It’s how you look at it… How you VIEW it…
Happiness or Misery… The choice is yours.
MANY WOULD SAY…
Stop expecting! Leave it behind …Look ahead… Move on…. Live…
All this may sound BOGUS !!!!#@$##
But Believe you me…
ITS NOT DIFFICULT!
ITS EASY! DAMM EASY!
N YOU GOT TO DECIDE YOUR OWN PATH TO FREEDOM…
PATH TO YOUR CUP OF HAPPINESS.
N I’ll share how I got over a serious obsession that changed my life completely.
Initially, I watched several videos and listened to audios that I thought could change my life.
After days of crying n wasting time…
One night @12 o clock🕒 I sed to myself…
I will SMILE… I will be HAPPY…. NO TEARS…NO SADNESS…LIFE IS GOOD…
My Strategy 🎲I ASKED MYSELF…
WHAT IS IT THAT TAKES ME ON THE DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY TRACK??
Social Media was the first answer.( Disconnect till such time you can’t take charge of things. )
STEP 1- I deleted FB intsa apps from my 📱
STEP 2- I STOPPED looking for Sympathy. SHOW that you are strong and that nothing can shake your inner being to death.
STEP 3- I Live minute by minute to keep myself busy. I would plan my next day such that I don’t get a minute to think about my obsession.I chanted sacred mantras. Even if thoughts ran in my mind, I did not let them stop me from remembering GOD. CHANTING ANYTIME OF THE DAY as soon as I FELT I’M ABOUT TO GET RESTLESS AND GET THAT ANXIETY ATTACK , I WOULD GRAB ONTO MY CHANTING BEEDS N BEGIN.Om chanting & Soham Chanting have been my favourites.
Gayatri Mantra … Hanuman Stotram also contributed in giving me immense strength n will power.
STEP 4 – Pranayama session (20 mins)
Walking atleast 1 HR ▶2 Hrs
STEP 5 – DETOX YOUR BODY… FEEL LIGHT. ▶DRINK 15 GLASSES OF WATER💧 EVERYDAY ,GREEN TEA, NUTS .EAT FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.
▶BATHE WITH SEA SALT IN WATER TO REMOVE NEGATIVE ENERGIES.
▶USE AROMA OILS TO CALM MIND.
LAVENDER N JASMINE ARE SOOTHING .
▶OIL YOUR HAIR… GO TO PARLOUR EVERY 20DAYS. Love yourself.
STEP6 – WHILE DOING HOUSEHOLD WORK, KEEP THE SACRED Mantras Being sung all around. THEY are very helpful to keep negative energies around you, at bay.
STEP 7-FOCUS on Family/husband/child.
STEP 8- Study Books, Write Blogs, not in lonely places but in public places, Like ur yoga class, a coffee joint ,Park etc.
STEP 9- SET ACHIEVABLE GOALS. UNREALISTIC ONES MAY AGAIN LEAD TO ANXIETY ATTACKS.They need not necessarily be fitness orientated.Cleaning a room or your Garage could be a useful one.
STEP 10- USE THE SECRET. IMAGINE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL THINGS. IMAGINE GETTING YOUR DIGNITY BACK. IMAGINE THE OBSESSION BECOMING MEANINGLESS.
STEP 11- MEET FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS. CALL THEM UP, BE IN TOUCH WITH PEOPLE WHO GIVE YOU POSITIVE ENERGY. GO FOR FUN OUTINGS OR WATCH INSPIRING,COMEDY MOVIES.
STEP 12 – 30 DAYS COMPLETE??? REMEMBER !!
THEY COME BACK ONCE YOUVE MOVED ON.
MAKE YOUR OBSSESSION “”A REMINDER””
A reminder of the hardships you’ve gone through.And that you never deserved even a bit of all that. U will realise yourself, It was easy,The moment you decided to look things differently.

Embracing every morning with a beautiful smile and a deep inhalation, my day brightens in my little yoga hub with my ever energetic yoga companions, waiting for me to deliver to them a yogic hour .Yes…I feel absolutely beautiful being a Yoga Teacher. Having mastered several modern fitness regimes from leading organizations like Reebok, Pilates Institute of America, BFY, AHA etc, I eventually found my calling in the traditional Indian Wisdom of Yoga.
My tryst as a wellness coach began eight years ago, with a desire to loose the stubborn fat that was lovingly clinging around me. So I stepped into the studio to join the fitness classes to lose weight. It was sheer coincidence that a Fitness Trainer batch was about to begin there. I instantly changed my decision and signed up to learn the science behind loosing weight. This implied being empowered to help myself and many others to stay fit ‘n’ healthy for the rest of the life. Soon as a trainer I would have cheerful mornings and evenings with my aerobics students flowing with my choreography on the latest aerobics music and then rushing to multiple gyms helping folks use weights and equipment. The pace and students ever increased .till one day. when a minor mishap left me with a badly injured ankle and I was advised rest for a month. A Setback! Now what?
My only GOAL was to pass this sedentary period without adding a single pound. I began thinking out of the fitness manuals and designed my own set of rehabilitation routine for my injured lower body. Simultaneously working hard enough for my Upper body. I practiced a lot of yogic breathing techniques and yoga asanas that were showing remarkable result… Soon I successfully recovered from my ankle injury… and was stronger than before… I development a love for yoga…and wanted to learn more of it.. I would join different yoga classes to feel nourished… and also switched to delivering yoga sessions instead of aerobics.. It wasn’t about what was better….and not what the world was doing… It was about what I was passionate about and what suited me more… I learnt ” My Mind…My Body…My Rules,Explore…Feel…And then configure… ”
My life as a Yogi is a quest much beyond the realms of asanas. I have discovered Pranayama magnifies your life force energy, while Dhyana (meditation) uplifts you spiritually. This ancient practice harmonizes mind, body and soul by offering mental, physical and spiritual benefits. Initially I needed to blend Yoga with modern fitness regimes but over the past two years people are actually seeking its traditional pristine format. This largely was due to the stellar efforts of our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji , which is his finest gift to humanity.
As enshrined in the Yoga Sutra – “tapahswadhyayeshwarpranidhanani kriyayogaha” meaning self discipline self study and devotion is yoga in form of action. Whatever be your objective, get yourself a Yoga mentor and get going. Being too much result oriented often leads to break in consistency. So begin with small steps…Keep adding to your steps… Progressively keep growing… Set backs are quite a blessing… Welcome them with a positive attitude.

~Fitsvilla Fitness Challenge 4~
This was quite a Challenge for me.
The 5km walk in less than 50 mins and 50 situps was a cake walk though….The challenge I faced was in 50 squats n 500 jumping jacks.
On day 1… having completed my challenge… I was still ok…
But on Day 2 #MY SORE QUADS# delighted me…. ~SORE~… The most satisfying pain…I had earned it… not all are blessed with it… It meant I’ve worked hard….Day 2 was a little strain on my quads (muscles of our thighs).And the 500 jumping jacks would literally suckkk alll the breath outta me.But motivation from all my fit and strong fitness friends kept me going…I WILL NOT GIVE UP ON THIS TILL MY DAY 5 ….was something that I was very CERTAIN about.
Day 3’s squats were scary… With the muscles sore….challenging me
BUT I DID NOT GIVE UP…
Day 4 I was awarded….This was quite a miracle.. Muscle soreness VANISHED…. I WAS STRONGER…
DAY 4 AND DAY 5 Were EASY….
Or may be I GOT STRONGER
I personally experienced this famous quote
~”The pain you are in today,turns into your strength tomorrow.”~
My muscles adapted to the 50 squats n 500 jumping jacks by day 5.
Lesson learnt *
~Challenges are difficult in the beginning…
Most difficult in the middle and Glorious at the End . …leaving you Strong and happy~
And also that ….
~The End is always a new beginning~
Few more observations During this challenge…
When you are on a journey to self improvement….and completely drenched in it…There will be haters…They will try to demotivate you…They’ll laugh at you…
Assume things about you…Copy you…. And try to fight you… but at the end
●A clarity in your mind that you don’t have to be part of the RAT RACE…and your PERSISTENCE will help you WIN !
