You To-Do !!!

Hello Everyone ! Welcome to the New Year 2010!
We all expect something great to happen when the new year strikes. There is no magic pill you can pop to change what you want to . So long as you don’t put yourself first and take care of you mentally and physically there is no way we can offer a 100% to our family and friends who love and respect us.
This new year vow to put yourself first and do things that can make you feel happy atleast one moment in a day . It could be as simple as enjoying a cup of steaming hot tea with your favourite gossip magazine or that delicious piece of fine chocolate .

Taking time to do things that will not only make you healthy but help lead a fulfilling life. Healthy does not mean joining expensive gym or going on crash diet.Instead play with your kid or do some your tube video dance with them. No one ever understands what baby steps mean anymore in this world of instant gratification.

No one expects us to run a marathon or do some olympian effort , so start slow .I personally like it to play under-dog ( A person from whom people don’t expect much :)).
Think of you as an under-dog. Still do it so you can surprise yourself.I may not be in the perfect shape/phase but here are the things that I have developed over the years

- Eat fruits
- Drink milk
- Cut down on caffine
- Drink Water
- Park car far away and walk to the store
- Climb stairs when I can
- Adapt healthy cooking methods
- Dtich 2 wheeler/4 wheeler once a week and try to walk.
- Cut down on too much soda/sugary drinks
- Replace one meal a week with non-traditional carb such as quiona/cracked wheat/barley
- Develop a beatuy regime :)
This past year I have been to doctor to do a master health. Don’t ignore your health concerns .If you see too many people falling sick due to flu , get a flu shot if you can. As a woman I tend to have more tolerance for pain . This year I decide to keep it 5on a scale of 1 to10. We don’t manage our pains but mostly live with it. Don’t be paranoid but be informed about your wellbeing.

I wish that this year everyone takes better care of themselves especially those who take care of others :)

Happy New Year !!!

புத்தாண்டு வாழ்த்துகள் இலா, நினைத்து எல்லாம் கைகூடும் வருடமாக இருக்கட்டும்...ஏறக்குறைய ஒரு வருடமா தூங்கி கொண்டு இருந்த இதயம் தூக்கம் கலைந்து பேச ஆரம்பித்துவிட்டதே.. ரொம்ப மகிழ்ச்சியா இருக்கு

வாழ்க வளமுடன்
