Happiness may arise in the moment, but it is often the result of good decisions made over years. Take a look at these everyday good habits we need!
Happiness! A simple word that is the essence of the entire human race. Whatever we do today, we do to make us anticipating future happiness.
That’s not being selfish; that is in fact the absolutely correct way to enjoy this gift we have, called life. In a life span of 30 years I have lived a million moments wherein I went through a gamut emotions but the irony was that many of them weren’t mine! They manifested out of the insecurities of people around me.
I learnt my lesson, that a life spent in making others happy and focusing on others’ choices is definitely a life wasted.
Instead, it is our choices and actions that matter, because the actions we take today will affect life in the future.
Here is my list to ensure that whatever happens a few years from now, my past actions would have ensured some balm on my future battered heart!
Work that butt off, for the more you move that body now, the better it will treat you when you are touching your fifties. The stratagem is simple; pick up any of the below, make it a routine and voilà! You will be paying back your body for all that it has done for you.
I learnt this one from my personal experience. My husband taught me really early in our marriage that if your money is sorted then that’s directly proportional to a sorted life. My hacks are yours now.
Watch this video below on maintaining the ‘My Money Book’ – indeed the answer to the pray of many who find it hard to keep track of their investments.
If you are married, maintaining a ‘My Money Book’ with your spouse is a great way to discuss your financials as well as your long-term financial security and happiness. The My Money Book ensures that your marriage is a true partnership where you are both involved and aware of how your finances are invested.
Believe me, the time at which you have your meals impacts your overall nutrition. Here are some other things to consider:
The only plausible way we get to experience unadulterated innocence is by being with a child. My son is my source of happiness and I realized that by being with him I was not just tending to his needs but also teaching him amazing stuff unconsciously. And in return he takes care of stress-busting for me, and helps me discover the kid in myself. Time invested in your child is never wasted. (And remember presents don’t substitute for presence.)
Repeat after me, I will brush twice a day. Now after all the pearls of wisdom this might sound like a measly thing. But the truth is that brushing and flossing now is easier than dental visits later, not to forget those awful dentures. (My grandparents are living proof of this fact.) So pick up this habit now to smile at all your happy moments in the future.
These big and small ideas for a happy future are things that truly work for me. Share your own habits for happiness too!

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
When Jaya Bachchan speaks her mind in public she is often accused of being brusque and even abrasive. Can we think of her prodigious talent and all the bitter pills she has had to swallow over the years?
A couple of days ago, a short clip of a 1998 interview of Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan resurfaced on social media. In this episode of the Simi Grewal chat show, at about the 23-minute mark, Jaya lists her husband’s priorities: one, parents, two kids, then wife. Then she corrects herself: his profession – and perhaps someone else – ranks above her as a wife.
Amitabh looks visibly uncomfortable at this unstated but unambiguous reference to his rather well-publicised affair with co-star Rekha back in the day.
Watching the classic film Abhimaan some years ago, one scene really stayed with me. It was something Brajeshwarlal (David’s character) says in troubled tones during the song tere mere milan ki yeh raina. He says something to the effect that Uma (Jaya Bhaduri’s character) is more talented than Subir (Amitabh Bachchan’s character) and that this was a problem since society teaches us that men are superior to women.
