Amazing to be "SHE"
Are you a working woman or a homemaker? Doesn’t matter who
you are, a CEO or a school teacher. What matters is that you are a woman!
Every woman is indulged in their own lives in one way or the
other. Shilpa, a homemaker starts her day at 5 a.m., cooks food, nourishes her
family and finally rests herself at 11.00 P.M at night. On the other hand,
Maitree, CEO of a multinational company, starts her day boosting up her muscles,
helps her maid in preparing the breakfast for herself and her family. Before
she leaves home, she makes sure that she is ready with her presentation that
she has to deliver to her client.
This is a scenario from every woman’s life where she hardly
gets time to breathe and hence needs space for herself. After spending time for
their family, kids, office commitments, I think a woman needs a particular day
to rejoice, relax and entertain herself.
Hence, I proposed a question in my last post as how a woman
would like to relax and enjoy a day for herself every week. I am proud to have
a few ladies on the forum. In spite of being in a busy schedule, women should
be able to spend time for themselves, just to relax and make their soul happy. However,
most of us are not able to do it due to family commitments, improper planning,
time management and some because of laziness.
Give me a day of yours and I will make sure when you will
come back to bed, you will feel awesome. The only thing you have to do is try
the below steps. I hope I will not disappoint you.
- Take a Sunday Morning, get up at 7 a.m.
- Start your day by breathing exercise not more
than 30 mins.
- Prepare something new in Breakfast; a South
Indian should prepare “Poha” and a North Indian should go for “Dosa”. The main
motive is to try anything you are not habituated with on your breakfast table.
If anyone like a continental breakfast but somehow had to hop on Indian
breakfast every day, please give it a break and go for an Italian or Mexican
- Today you are not going to do your laundry
neither cleaning your house
- Time is 10 a.m in the morning. Dress up as
comfortable as you feel. Loose T-shirts and Jeans or if you are comfortable in
something Ethnic, go for it!
- Hop in to a bus or a Rick. Today we are going to
meet someone new. Yes! You heard it correct, A stranger, whom you don’t know.
- The perfect way of meeting a stranger is an NGO.
It all depends on you which NGO you want to visit, an orphanage or an old age
- Try to connect with the kids by providing books,
toys, and clothes if you are visiting an orphanage. Spend some quality time
with the old people if you are visiting an old age home.
- Enjoy your lunch with those kids or the old age
people. After lunch, now it’s time to move on and enjoy the rest of the day.
- Spending time in a NGO is a way of sharing new hopes, a new life
with people whom you don’t know. You end up with a feeling --- “We make a
living by what we get but we make a life by what we give”.
- Hobbies! Evening is the perfect time to do
whatever you love. If you love reading go to a book shop and pick your best
book. Enjoy your favorite story over a cup of hot coffee or green tea. If you
love shopping, you should shop only for yourself today. But people love to buy
gifts are exceptions.
- For people who loves gardening, spend some time
in your lawn and plant a new plant today. Don’t forget to give a check at other
saplings also. Spraying water at your garden gives immense pleasure. Just for a
day, do it by yourself. Give a day off to your gardener.
- Now time to relax our body as well as mind. Go
for a head massage or Pedicure. I hope you will feel great. Go for a hot oil
- Ensure that you are home by 8 P.M. don’t cook
your dinner today. Order your favorite food, it can be anything. Include
Desserts also. I believe every 8 out of 10 women love ice creams or Panna cotta.
- Hold on! Your day doesn’t end here. It’s 10.30
P.M now and you have still half an hour to bed. Take a notepad or tablet to
jolt down the best moments of your day.
- Capturing the best moments helps you to
understand yourself better. It will help you to figure out who you are, what
you are and why you can do things in a better way than others. It is a good way
to pick yourself up.
How are you feeling now? I am feeling happy and contended J Let me know your thoughts about this day and please let me know if you have better thoughts to pamper yourself. Cheers to Womanhood!
