Fun Indoor Games for Kids and Adults

Covid 19 virus proved that work can also be done from home. It was never in the culture of India. Now a lot of companies are planning to implement Hybrid Environment where employees can choose to work from home or office. However, when you stay at home, there are certain disadvantages as well. You could not get together with your colleagues, and sometimes life becomes boring. So today I thought to share some easy, fun-packed ways to help you stay relaxed and enjoy a playful life at home.

Believe it or not, lockdown has slowed down our pace of lives like a speed breaker in between. Needless to say, staying indoors has reduced our regular physical activities. And with kids being stuck in four walls of a home, it is important to keep fun alive to have a healthy and fun-loving atmosphere at home.

So, here I bring you some easy ways to help you relax and enjoy playful life, every moment. Here we go...

Games for Kids:

Hula Hoops: It's fun for your kids, and if being a parent you’re reading this it’s not for your kids but also for you. It is an excellent way to keep your mind at peace. Hula hoops are affordable and can be brought in different sizes, to whatever suits you. It has lots of health advantages, which help in maintaining better body balance, burning calories and can completely fulfill the gap of not visiting the gym. This helps you staying indoors with your family and working out together.


Camping Indoor: Another great sport can be camping indoors with your kids. Yes, nothing can be more fun for them to make their own playhouse. Depending on your kid's age you can plan to set up the tent either at your backyard, balcony, terrace, or beside a fireplace. You can also plan a movie night in your balcony with the sitting arrangements in the tent with food and popcorn to feast on.


Ludo: Getting a Ludo game online is easy to find however it's more fun with the physical ludo game. It has been the favorite choice for years and may never get old and can be enjoyed by your kids. Ludo has always been a family game and can be a fun time amidst lockdown.

Balancing Beam: It helps younger kids and toddlers to improve motor skills and their balance and is easy to play with. You will need Colored tape and a flat floor. Stick different colored tapes tape on the floor. Each colored tape can have a different rule to walk on. For example, you can ask the kid to walk on one leg on the Yellow Colored tape. The child has to walk only on the tape. If he falls off the tape, he will be out of the game. The child that walks the entire length of the tape without falling off the tape wins the game. You can change rules accordingly to suit your kid.


Puzzles: Give your child access to various puzzles that can be both engaging and educational. It can be in the form of pictures, rubber-made animal pictures. Ask your child that he needs to set the pieces of the puzzle together to form a picture in case of a picture puzzle. If you have younger children, you can try some 3D puzzle toys. Words puzzles are excellent for older kids in order to improve their vocabulary. Puzzle books are always good at home that can be given to your child when they cannot get out.

Read: Introducing your child into the habit of reading is a great way to keep them occupied on most days. This is a must skill every child should develop. Pick up a book with pictures and read with your child.

Freeze: It is enjoyed by both kids & adults. Play the music and dance till the music stops and ask everyone to freeze in the position they were in.

Hide and seek: It is a fun game that kids enjoy a lot. Ask one child to close his eyes and count till 20 until the rest of them hide in different places. Once the seeker is done with counting, he will have to go to find others. The first person to be caught must count the next time when the others hide again.

Games for Adults:

For all the adults working from home, physical activity has reached point zero. Eyes gazed at the laptop screen while you are completely placed on your bed or either sofa to the most. Let us make your times at home a little fun:

Raja Mantri Chor Sipahi: You may recall this game and if not you have to brush up on your childhood memories. This game involves four players. Chits with raja (king), Mantri (minister), chor (thief) and Sipahi (inspector) written on them are made. Shuffle the chits thoroughly and let every player pick one. Raja calls out to his Mantri and asks him to guess who the Chor and Sipahi are. If his guess is right, Raja gets the highest score, Mantri, the second-highest, Sipahi, the third-highest, and Chor gets a zero. If the Mantri’s guess is wrong, his score is interchanged with that of the chor.

Tip: At the end of the game, the one who loses can clean or mop the house.

Video games: It is another leisure activity you can engage in, if you have old cassettes at home it’s a great time for you to enjoy some good old games like Super Mario, Super Contra, Mustapha, Street Fighter, Tekken 3, etc. And the ones who do not have play station can invest in buying one. Getting glued to your phone's small screen, I considered it pretty unhealthy for eyes, playing some games on the big screen is worth a shot. In fact, there are studies that claim that playing video games can be good for our mental health and can help relax our minds.

Tic Tac Toe (Zero Kata): You can easily start playing it with a paper and pen, it is one of the classic little mind strategic game which you can try playing with your kids.

Dumb Charades: It is the best game to play if you have enough time. You can involve all your family members or just two people. All the players get divided equally into two or three teams. One person from each team has to enact (perform acting) the name of a movie using the actions for their respective team. If the team is able to guess the name, they get a point. As a punishment, the losing team can do all the household cleaning for a day.

Darts: Darts is another option for you to enjoy and have some physical movement staying at home. It not only gives you the thrill of hitting the target but also increases your mental agility. It helps you improve your eye to brain coordination and increases concentration. Too So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get, set, go!

So do you have your game plan set for the week? Do let me know in the comments below.

Itchy Scalp due to Dandruff - Solution, Remedies and Oil

We all know that oiling is essential for healthy hair. But which one should you be using, especially during the winters when Dandruff is severe? Let's check out quickly:

Believe it or not, your hair and scalp have different needs during the winter—just like your skin. A change could be as simple as switching your shampoo, to doing something a bit more involved like finding a hair mask to leave on overnight. These are all the things you should think about investing in for the winter months ahead to help keep your scalp moisturized — for thick, strong, and healthy hair.

There are some essential oils for hair and remedies you can use to get rid of Dandruff and to get shiny silky-smooth hair in winters:

1) Apple Cider Vinegar:

In winters, most people suffer from dandruff and it results in an Itchy scalp. Apple cider vinegar can help you treat dandruff as well as itchiness right at home. All you need to do is mix apple cider vinegar with water in a ratio of 1:4 and with the help of cotton, apply the mixture to your scalp. Keep it applied on the scalp for one hour and then wash off your hair with a mild shampoo and see the difference, you will get a squeaky-clean scalp.

Tip: Apple Cider Vinegar is easily available online or in any Grocery Store.

Buy it online easily from Amazon:

Dabur Himalayan Apple Cider Vinegar: https://amzn.to/3qVnaZy

2) Avocado Hair Mask:

The Avocado homemade hair mask is highly moisturizing and adds a natural shine to the hair. Mashup 1 ripe banana and 2 ripe avocados together. Now apply the mix on the hair and leave it on for about half an hour or longer. Next, wash your hair as usual and you are done! You will find your hair will be well-nourished and moisturized.

Tip: Both Banana & Avocado can be easily available in nearby fruits market.

3) Tea Tree Oil:

Tea tree oil helps with an itchy and flaky scalp. If you’re looking for something light yet nourishing, tea tree oil is for you. Try mixing it with a small amount of coconut oil and apply the oil overnight and wash it off the next day with a mild shampoo. There you go, your scalp will be itchy-free and winter-ready!

Buy it Online from Amazon: https://amzn.to/3qTWnwN

4) Aloe Vera Gel:

If you have tried everything from lemon to camphor for dandruff and got no results, you must try aloe vera gel. It’s also recommended for skincare. However, it is great for dry and flaky scalps too. Apply some gel on your scalp and hair. Leave it on for a while and then wash your hair as usual. You are sure to see instant results with this one.

Buy it Online from Amazon:

WOW Aloe Vera Multipurpose Beauty Gel for Skin and Hair, 130ml + 20ml: https://amzn.to/3klBJmN

Patanjali Saundarya Aloe Vera Gel, 150ml:  https://amzn.to/3suWY8N

5) Hot Oil Massage:

Whether you have an oily scalp or a dry one, a hot oil massage is a must for everyone in the winter season. Just mix olive, coconut, and almond oil over a sim flame on gas for a couple of minutes. Once they are mixed well, you can apply it to your scalp.

6) Rice Milk and Honey Mask:

This next mask is a bit tricky to make but has great results. You can find rice milk in the markets or make your own using rice and water. Take 2 tablespoons of honey and mix it with some rice milk to form a thick mixture. Apply the mixture on your hair and scalp and leave it on for about half an hour. Wash your hair using a mild shampoo and you are done. See the difference after.

Additional Hair Care Tips:

In winters, we generally like bathing with hot water. Alongside the above occasional treatments, remember to keep your hair away from steaming hot water, chemical products, and hair dryers. Hot water can damage the cells of your hair. Also, minimize the use of hair styling products like gels and wax. Whenever you do use them, make sure that you treat your hair with a good wash afterward.

Friends, the above remedies must be tried at least twice or thrice for best results, however, if you want quick relief from Dandruff, try the below medicine:

Nizral Shampoo: It neutralizes dandruff-causing fungus & clears up the itchy, scaly & flaky scalp.

Method: Try mixing Nizoral shampoo with Clinic All Clear in ratio 1:2, mix it well and apply on the scalp and gently rub for 3 to 5 minutes and wash your hair. You can also use Nizral Shampoo alone without mixing it with another shampoo in case of severe dandruff. After wash, you will find quick relief from dandruff and itchy skin.

It contains Ketoconazole IP 2 % and is considered a very powerful shampoo in controlling flaking, scaling, and itching caused by dandruff. It's marketed by Johnson & Johnson Private Limited. Try it after every 3 to 4 days to control Dandruff from returning

Tip: You can easily get it at any nearby Medical Shop. I am personally using it and don't have any side-effects. It's similar to a normal shampoo having Ketoconazole effective in removing dandruff 100%.

I hope you will try the above treatments to get rid of dandruff and enjoy a clean itchy-free scalp and smooth shiny hair.

How to Increase Height (100% Ayurvedic Routine)

To check whether height can be increased we need to study and check ancient ayurvedic scriptures and have a discussion with medical doctors to understand the truth behind it.

While modern medical doctors can help with modern growth hormone injections to increase the height. On the other hand, Ayurveda has a set of simple practices through which a lot of people have already grown taller. Where modern science broadly suggests a healthy diet and daily exercise, Ayurveda on the other hand goes much deeper to identify certain foods and herbs in nature that directly impact the height. It may be a hard pill to swallow for many modern doctors but Ayurveda clearly states that irrespective of your genetics, if you are under 21 years of age, all you need is a few simple ingredients, a conviction in your mind, and a strong will power to shoot up your height. And that’s what this blog is all about. So, measure your height today, and let's get started with the below-mentioned routine to increase height.


Follow Daily Routine:

1. Early morning, after you have a glass of water, the first step is to have 50 gm of Bamboo Murabba. As the bamboo tree grows faster and taller, ayurveda scriptures identify bamboo shoot to be one of the most potent medicine for height growth and overall body strength. Even scientists have found bamboo shoots to be exceptionally rich in calcium, phosphorus, protein, and various amino acids that are vital for taller.

Process of taking it: 

Bamboo Murabba is made by boiling the bamboo shoots and then soaking them in sugar syrup. You don’t have to start searching for a Bamboo Tree near your place. It’s easily available online. Early morning, when your stomach is empty eating a bamboo muraba will have the most impact. After having it wait for at least 30 minutes before you eat your breakfast. If you find it to be sugary, you can even wash it under clean water.

2. Make homemade ayurvedic tonic:

Process: 

400 gm of Ashwagandha Root Powder, 100 gm of Shatavari Powder, and 500 gm of Thread Mishri, mix it and keep it in an airtight container.

Take 2 Tb spoons of camel milk powder and add 200 ml of hot boiling water. Add further Ashwagandha Shatavari powder and thread mishri for sweetening to make it tasty. Have it slowly and don’t eat anything for at least 2 hours. You don't have to take it with milk or buffalo milk as Camel milk is most potent for increasing height, its property is to boost height. I understand it's hard to find it, however, it's easily available in Powder form.

Note: If you are eating roadside junk food like samosas and oily foods in the day, it may not harm the body right away but in later run, you will regret your choice of food. It’s always better to have homely food. Best foods for increasing height according to Ayurveda are desi cow dairy products, curd, fresh butter, paneer. Fruits such as Bananas and chiku are excellent. In Lunch eat at much Black Urad Dal which is good in dietary fiber, isoflavones, vitamin B complex, iron, copper, calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium, phosphorus.

3. Stimulation of the Pituitary Gland which secretes the Human Growth Hormone which is responsible for increasing the height.

Process:

Sit cross leg on the bed or any comfortable position with spine erect and close your eyes and try to concentrate in between your eye-brows. Yes, this is where the Pituitary Gland is located. It's also referred to as a 3rd eye. Keep all your concentration at this point. You don’t have to overstress and bring yourself into a relaxing state of mind. You may experience pain in the start but it will become normal after 2 to 3 days. Thought will rush at a speed of light, but keep concentrating and ignore them. Do this exercise for just 2 minutes before sleeping. You can increase it to 5 minutes slowly & gradually. It can be a game-changer and then finally go to sleep.

4. Sleep Well:

it's not hidden that our bodies grow when we are sleeping. When it comes to optimum sleep quality proceeds quantity. So at least have a minimum of 7 – 8 hours sleep.

Summary:

Early morning 30 minutes before breakfast have a piece of bamboo murabba, then 2 hours after breakfast have one glass of warm camel milk with one teaspoon of Ashwagandha Shatavari Powder and have the same tonic 30 minutes before going to sleep at night as well. The final step is to practice stimulating the Pituitary Gland for 5 minutes. Do ensure you don’t ignore a well-balanced homely diet with stretching exercises and quality sleep.

Increasing height might sound like a difficult task but if you follow every bit of what I have mentioned in my blog I assure our ancient text assured that you will be amazed to see the result. Do measure your height after 1 month, but I want you to follow the above routine consistently for at least 3 months to see amazing results. It’s a one-time investment and the satisfaction you will enjoy for the rest of your life.

You can get all products mentioned in this blog on any ayurvedic store offline and also online easily.

5 Quick and Healthy Breakfast Options you must Try

Breakfast is the first very important meal of the day. It provides physical energy to start your day and helps your mind function actively. When we wake up fresh early morning our body requires energy and our breakfast therefore becomes very important to fulfill that need. I would be sharing the 5 best breakfast recipes in this blog post which would be quite easy to cook with all ingredients easily available in every house. First, let's understand the importance of breakfast and the consequences of skipping it.


In our fast-paced life, a lot of people either not have their breakfast properly or eating the same thing every day like any parantha, biscuits, bread, and tea which is not enough for our body and moreover, it's even harmful. Tea in a lot of quantity makes acidity and bread is made up of refined wheat (maida) which is hard to digest and takes time.

The food that’s digested quickly, generates energy quickly. That is the reason breakfast should contain a balanced diet rich in fiber which gets digested quickly and controls the blood sugar and weight of your body. A healthy breakfast helps the body to perform physically and mentally at its best.

To understand completely the positive benefits of a healthy breakfast, we should also consider the consequences of skipping or leaving breakfast. If you skip your first breakfast meal, you could feel headache, inactive, slow, lethargic, and low blood sugar.

Let’s discuss a few benefits of Breakfast:

  1. Blood Sugar remains controlled: If you skip your breakfast the blood sugar level could increase. Research proved that the weight of people is always less as compared to people who skip breakfast.
  2. Cholesterol remains controlled: People who take well-balanced breakfast on time have generally a habit of consuming less fast food which in turn reduces cholesterol and the risk of heart problems also gets reduced.
  3. Helps increase concentration & focus on tasks: Researchers found that breakfast helps increase concentration and sharpen memory. It reduces tension and keeps the mood good the whole day. Like other parts of the body, the mind also requires energy to work and helps decide what’s good and bad for us.
  4. Reduces the desire to eat fast food: If you don’t take a balanced breakfast diet, you start craving for food soon, and because of which a lot of people consume unhealthy food that is harmful to the body. Always take a well-balanced breakfast.
  5. Breakfast makes the immunity system strong: If you consume fruits like oranges, bananas etc which are full in vitamins & fibers, it helps you build your immunity system strong and helps you fight diseases and stay protected.
  6. Breakfast helps reducing Tiredness and Insomnia the whole day: When you take a balanced diet, it keeps your body energetic and helps you fight insomnia as well.
  7. Reduces obesity: If you are follow dieting, it's recommended to never skip breakfast. According to health experts, having a well-balanced breakfast can help you reduce obesity. If you skip breakfast, irregular eating desire takes place which ultimately results in obesity.

What should you eat for Breakfast?

Choosing the right well-balanced breakfast is very important. It can include fruits, vegetables, Dalia, dairy products with fewer fats and protein shakes.

One should take breakfast having a good amount of calcium, iron, vitamin B, and fiber. I would like to share 5 quick and healthy breakfast options along with their recipe process.

5 Practical Easy Steps to reduce Stress

In the fast moving life, people hardly take out time to Relax their mind. Sleeping for 6 to 8 hours is not enough for the mind to function efficiently. Road-rages, Politics at the workplace, Quarrels with partner or Breakup in the relationships and other issues fill the mind with Stress and our productivity stops decreasing. We all deserve to be relaxed and calm. Let's find out how to make it possible.


One doesn't need a Spa or vacation refreshment to get relaxed, although they have their own benefits. I have tried gathering a few easy practical Stress-Relieving strategies & tips which can revive you from mental stress to a relaxed healthy mind by simply investing 5 to 10 minutes on each step as per your ease. Let's quickly get into the relaxation mode:

1) Focus on your breathing: 

Sit down on a Chair or on a Yoga Mat for 5 to 10 minutes in a quiet room. Try practicing deep breaths (also known as belly breathing). While breathing, gently disengage your mind from distracting thoughts, sensations, and focus only on the counting of your breaths.

Once you start counting, distractions & thoughts moving at the speed of light in your mind will automatically start reducing and your mind will become calm clutter-free.

Tip: Try Focusing on breath count for 5 to 10 minutes daily whenever you find time to relax.

2) Try to be in your Present Moment:

Try having awareness near you to gather info about the truth. Being in whichever situation, either bad or good, the focus should always be on living the present moment fullest. Studies reveal that being in the present moment helps reduces stress. It helps you live in reality rather than in a state of illusion or future possibilities. People have forgotten enjoying their life every moment, as life is precious, they are just living for the sake of living and passing their time.

From now, whenever you walk in the park, feel the air on your face and the feet hitting the ground. Enjoy the taste of every meal rather than just eating it. If you start focusing on how you to live this present time to the fullest, you will be productive, and stress-free.

भूतकाल व्याकुल करे और भविष्य भरमाय, वर्तमान में जो जिए तो जीना आ जाय 

Tip: Develop a habit of being yourself in the present moment. Live it completely to make it the best moment of your life. Each minute of your life matters. Life is short, live every second to make it cheerful.

3) Disconnect with Technology:

Try switching off your mobile phones for at least one hour daily. Doing this, you will get two benefits. One is you add life to your mobile, and second, you will get at least one hour time to start thinking about yourself. What all you have? How you can improve? What all would be required to achieve your goals? Answers to these questions can't be provided by someone else. You are the best person to know yourself. If you ask your mind, I guarantee you will definitely get the answers. Jot down in the diary and start working on them from today itself. Once you start improvingstress will automatically reduce.

Tip: Try disconnecting yourself from the mobile & social media for sometime daily and trust me your mind would become most productive during that time.

4) Consider reading your favorite book to upgrade your skills:

"Reading is a habit which will never let your thoughts become negative." By Reading, I mean something productive which can add knowledge & upgrade your skills at your job place, or let you become a part of a story. Rather than wasting time on TV, chatting or gossiping with others, the habit of reading can be seen to be the best way to reduce stress.

Today you have plenty of options to choose your desired book such as Amazon Kindle (also available as an Android App on Google Play Store), Play Books App (Android platform), Pdf books on Computer, or buy them in hard copy if you wish to read them on paper. You even get the option of Audiobooks on Audible, try 1 month free, it's available.

Tip: Reading your favorite blog or book for at least 30 minutes a day can never let you become negative in life. Start today itself, Tomorrow never comes. Remember What is not started Today is never finished Tomorrow.

5) Exercise Daily:

Any form of exercise, such as walkingrunning, or yoga can ease depression and anxiety by helping the brain release feel-good chemicals. It also gives your body a chance to practice deal with stress. You can go for a quick walk in the park near your house, or do some stretching exercises to relax your body & mind. 


Cardio and Yoga can play a major role in making your body stress free. It is said “A Sound Mind dwells in a Sound Body", and when we have a sound mind, we learn faster and get better results.


So from now whenever you feel stressed, remind yourself to follow the above easy steps to de-stress yourself. I hope this blog will surely help you bring closer to an idea on how you can reduce your stress level.

1) Walking or the best would be Running: 

I read a lot of comments of youngsters asking ‘How does moving legs shrink love handles?’. By walking, we are not actually targeting Belly Fat, but its helping in reducing calories from our body. And reduction starts from that part where fat is mostly collected, i.e., at the belly. So the best you can do is start moving your body.

As while exercising in the Gym or Running in the park, calories are burned and your body fat percentage decreases. Hence, exercising not only helps you lose belly fat, but it also sheds fat from other areas. Walking and the best is running are two of the most results-producing fat-burning exercises. The best part of these two steps is it doesn't require any equipment. It requires the will to stand up and run for 10 minutes until your body starts sweating.

Important: Start and Make a habit of Running at least 10 minutes daily to see the results.

2) Bicycling:

Have you ever seen a rickshaw puller or anybody who does cycling daily having belly fat? I hope never. I understand the work schedule doesn't allow us to take the bicycle out. However, if we can give an Excercise Bicycle some space and start exercising for 10 to 15 minutes daily, it can give us enormous results. The bicycle exercise is ranked as No.1 as it requires body rotation, abdominal stabilization, and more abdominal muscle activity.

The Real Bicycle lovers can still be seen with helmets and cycling for few Kilometers daily on Roads. It all starts from within. Whether you have the will to be fit and looking good. An average person can burn between 250 to 500 calories during a 30-minute bike ride depending on the speed and intensity.

Tip: Bring the gift of Exercise Cycling at home and give it space if your schedule is tight.

3) Crunches:

Crunches are the best way to burn belly fat and are considered the topmost fat-burning exercise. It’s the right time to start performing this exercise.

Process:

a) Lie down flat on a yoga mat with your knees bent and feet on the ground.
b) Place them behind your head, or keep them crossed on your chest.
c) Inhale deeply, and as you lift your upper chest off the floor, exhale.
d) Inhale again as you get back down, and exhale as you come up.

Tip: Try crunches for 10 times as a beginner. Increase the sets until it becomes easier for you to do two to three sets everyday.

4) Simple Jumping:

We all have seen children jumping in the park or on the playground. Try jumping like the children for 5 minutes. Simple jumps for daily 5 minutes can help you to get a flat belly. You can jump in your home or you can go out in the park and can do jumps for 5 minutes to 10 minutes.


Tip: Start with 10 or 15 jumps. After some days you can increase your number or time. Repeat and complete at least 50 to 80 Jumps every day.

5) Bending Side to Side:

It's the simplest exercise and can be performed anytime at home or even at the park. Try it in the early morning after waking up for 5 to 10 minutes and increase slowly. Try it 2 or 3 times a day. This exercise is considered to be a good exercise to lose belly fat.

"I think age is just a number & not nearly as important as health. You can be in poor health and be pretty miserable at 40 or 50. If you're in good health, you can enjoy things into your 80s as well" - by Bob Barker.

Remember, you cannot get the results by looking at someone. It has to be started with you, from you, and within you to get the results.
