Sunday’s Chat & Cuppa: My First Week Back in Lisbon

My parents’ cat and new editor of thewellbeingblogger.com

It’s a blessing that I have this moment of silence and quietness to write a few words of reflection upon my first week back in Lisbon.

I’m sitting at my parents’ kitchen table with an espresso cup at my left and an albino naughty cat at my right. The cat is a ‘she’ – and she likes to tap my hands while I type. The only time she let me cuddle her so far was yesterday, and only because I was holding her food. Other than that, she’s mean and always ready to attack. Being a dog person, I can tell you… I’m satisfied with how far our friendship has come. In fact, she became the editor of thewellbeingblogger.com in less than a week. What can I say, she’s clearly an alpha female while I’m a sigma, so she gets to be the boss much quicker than me.

Your Heart Knows Who You Are Looking For

I was almost coughing my lungs out when he said he loved me, right in the middle of his kitchen, a few days before my flight. That’s something that probably doesn’t happen often after a certain age, I would say, but it was something I knew he would end up doing.

Would You Like To Be Famous? | Questions to Fall in Love | Q2

I recently started a new series at The Wellbeing Blogger, in which I will answer and reflect upon 36 different questions. These questions were used in a Psychology study to promote closeness between strangers and, since I’m often a stranger to myself, I decided it would be a good idea to follow Stephan’s steps and surprise myself with what comes out of my fingertips.

The second question on the set to fall in love is the following:

Would You Like To Be Famous? In What Way?

I Can Breathe Again, Away From The Queen’s Land

I only noticed how poorly I was breathing until I landed yesterday night in Lisbon. How did things become so heavy? At what point did I stop being positive and turned into a grumpy, annoying, all-the-time stressed, little gnome? When, exactly, did I stop being ‘me’ to become a human black hole?

How To Effectively Manage Your Pre-Workout Meals

SpecialBlog Guest

I have never waited this eagerly for my salary to get credited. That is because just like my luck, all the money is spent in buying the expensive pre-workouts, with the hope to get bigger and more vitalized. It was good but then pondered if it was that necessary to spend so much on the expensive pre-workouts. On one hand talking about “Gareebi mai gym” and on the other hand buying expensive stuff. There’s a saying that, “Necessity is the mother of inventions” and who other than us can think of easy jugaads to fix things up. By “us” I refer to my fellow Indians.

3 Important Steps When Meditating at Home

In this blog post you will learn about three important steps to make your meditation at home work for you. 

Meditation can help us embrace our worries, our fear, our anger; and that is very healing. We let our own natural capacity of healing do the work.

Thich Nhat Hanh

From time to time I get some messages in my inbox about practising meditation and the first steps to integrate meditation as a daily habit. Most of the messages I get are from people who are not sure about whether they are doing the “right” or “wrong” thing so, with that in mind, I recently recorded two Youtube videos in order to provide (hopefully) some answers:
