We all know the importance of being heard when weary and tired. This is the perfect time to lend a hand or willing ear to someone that needs it. When you help others, you instantly get gifted with the feel-good factor.
Does someone need your expert advice?
Is your acquaintance moving home and could do with some help?
Who knows, you might earn yourself a great friend in that acquaintance or your advice might take you places professionally!
Do yourself a favor by doing someone a good turn.
Shopping is therapeutic when you do not carry a to-do list in your bag. Otherwise, it is as good as a mundane chore. If you find yourself getting jittery, just go shopping. You do not have to buy a lot to feel good. You may buy that one item you have been eyeing since long. Always remember to keep away such purchases for special days.
Of course, there is no special day to love and feel good. But a little passionate shopping cannot do any harm.
Have you been putting off meeting family and friends due to time constraints? Well, here is your chance to make amends. Wake up, dress well and go visiting family and friends. Share memories and come back feeling warm and happy.
Yes, you read that right. Whoever told you that spa days are exclusively meant for dates is totally misled. You can always go to a spa and get a total makeover done. Looking good has no equal when it comes to building confidence. So, book that appointment immediately. Who knows how your evening might turn out to be?
Now, this option is always sidelined for birthdays, anniversaries and memorial days. Why not Valentine’s Day? Go to an old age home or a blind school and spend some time there assisting them in activities. If you can, make some donation as well. This gesture is noble and the need of the day as well.
If nothing else works for you, you have one last thing that is always available to you.
Do you find this funny? It is anything but that. If your space needs a good spring clean, get right down to it. This is just the day for it. When you are done with it and your space looks inviting, pamper yourself with tea and snacks.
Who knows, you might have some unexpected guests that evening?
Now that you have many options to choose from, c’mon smile and get going.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
