Honour the incredible women who have shaped your life – share their stories this Mother’s Day! Let’s pass on the #legacyofstrength!
In this forced hiatus due to lockdown, do introspect, focus on what you want from life, put yourself first and see the magic happen!
Humans have learned to and are adept at multitasking. With the advancement of science and technology, instead of finding more time to relax and enjoy life, unfortunately, we have made our lives more complex and stressful in chasing our dreams.
When people are asked to rate in the order of priority your work, family, and you, the normal tendency is to rate work and profession first of course, and then the family as you work for your family, and if you have any time and energy left, then you come last in the list.
While this may appear a natural way of living life, it is not what you should want from life.
Use this lockdown period as a once in a lifetime opportunity to pause introspect and think counter-intuitively.
Refocus on what you want from life, from your professional life, from your family and your personal life, your hobbies, and things you love doing but couldn’t find the time for.
Rethink your goals; try chasing happiness as against material needs and success.
Learn when to say an assertive ‘No’. Learn to draw your boundaries.
Learn to face your fears. Learn from your failures.
Learn to prioritize. This process makes you more confident and more likely to succeed in whatever you focus on.
It makes you more present and grounded, allowing you to give more in your relationship, be it your partner, your family, or your friends.
The stronger person you become by this can bring out the creative best in your professional life as well, where you can now multitask without stress. You will be in control of when to relax and how you will prioritize your work, where success becomes an outcome rather than something you need to chase.

We need to stop stereotyping women's bodies, and also be more sensitive towards our children who are growing up with terrible self-confidence leading to loneliness and depression.
When Kate Winslet said, “Young women should enjoy their life instead of worrying about how they look,” it stuck a cord with me. I am one of those women who struggle with body image issues in a society heavily influenced by unrealistic beauty standards and societal expectations, and Kate’s statement was empowering.
I grew up listening to unsolicited advice about wearing clothes a size bigger than what I wear; everyone took a free ride to comment about my bra and how big it was. I have spent most of my life loathing how I look—my size, weight, clothes, appearance, skin tone, and hair. This isn’t because I’m not too fond of how I appear, but rather because I’ve been told repeatedly by most trusted people around me that I have one or more flaws.
It is imperative that, as a society, we shed our stereotypical thought not just to support women but also our children who are growing up with terrible self-confidence leading to loneliness and depression. We can significantly impact our mental health and well-being by fostering a culture of compassion, understanding, and empowerment.
