9 Corporate Holiday Party Ideas Your Employees Will Be Talking About for  Weeks | Inc.com

Make every gathering a party

Don’t wait for the right circumstances—a vacation, a trip, a birthday—to experience extraordinary things. With the right frame of mind, every day can be a celebration.

You don’t need a special day or a reason to celebrate…..Its’s MY LIFE

You can celebrate every moment, even if there are only two-three of you, even with a small cup of tea or coffee, a glass of cold drink or Lime water…laugh more, appreciate more, pay gratitude to everything and everyone around….Love more, send hugs and kisses to near and dear ones….With light music you can relax or rejuvenate!! With peppy songs and fast music dance as if you have never danced before….Make each and every moment a memorable and cherishable moment..

Cheers

Ichigo Ichie Lesson #4- Apply mindfulness to your five senses. 

Post — Journey Through Wellness

Apply mindfulness to your five senses

Train yourself in the art of listening, watching, touching, tasting, and smelling to give each moment the richness of human perception. This will also allow you to be more alert to others and increase your level of empathy and influence.

The key to embodying mindfulness is to actually turn into a keen observer. Using the five senses — sight, sound, smell, taste and touch — can help you take in the world around you. They can be of great help in slowing down and living in the moment.

Ichigo Ichie- Lesson #3- Do something you’ve never done before

Becoming aware of ichigo ichie helps us take our foot off the gas and remember that each morning we spend in the world, every moment we spend with our children and with our loved ones is infinitely valuable and  why-being-present-is-so-difficult-and-what-you-can-do-about-it.

The cultivation and practice of ichigo ichie will allow you to lead a happier, more fulfilled life, without feeling weighed down by the past or anxious about the future. You’ll learn to live fully in the present, acknowledging and appreciating the gift of every moment.

Do something you’ve never done before.


Just do it!! DO NOT OVERTHINK!!

As Einstein said, you can’t do the same thing over and over and expect different results. Another way of achieving an unforgettable moment is by giving yourself over and allowing something new to blossom inside you.

Shabdhon ka Sansar

शब्दों का संसार-

शब्द रचे जाते हैं,
शब्द गढ़े जाते हैं,
शब्द मढ़े जाते हैं,
शब्द लिखे जाते हैं,
शब्द पढ़े जाते हैं,
शब्द बोले जाते हैं,
शब्द तौले जाते हैं,
शब्द टटोले जाते हैं,
शब्द खंगाले जाते हैं,

अंततः

शब्द बनते हैं,
शब्द संवरते हैं,
शब्द सुधरते हैं,
शब्द निखरते हैं,
शब्द हंसाते हैं,
शब्द मनाते हैं,
शब्द रूलाते हैं,
शब्द मुस्कुराते हैं,
शब्द खिलखिलाते हैं,
शब्द गुदगुदाते हैं,
शब्द मुखर हो जाते हैं,
शब्द प्रखर हो जाते हैं,
शब्द मधुर हो जाते हैं,

फिर भी-

शब्द चुभते हैं,
शब्द बिकते हैं,
शब्द रूठते हैं,
शब्द घाव देते हैं,
शब्द ताव देते हैं,
शब्द लड़ते हैं,
शब्द झगड़ते हैं,
शब्द बिगड़ते हैं,
शब्द बिखरते हैं
शब्द सिहरते हैं,

किंतु-

शब्द मरते नहीं,
शब्द थकते नहीं,
शब्द रुकते नहीं,
शब्द चुकते नहीं,

अतएव-

शब्दों से खेले नहीं,
बिन सोचे बोले नहीं,
शब्दों को मान दें,
शब्दों को सम्मान दें,
शब्दों पर ध्यान दें,
शब्दों को पहचान दें,
ऊँची लंबी उड़ान दे,
शब्दों को आत्मसात करें…
उनसे उनकी बात करें,
शब्दों का अविष्कार करें…
ध्यान से सुने …..
गहन सार्थक विचार करें…..
व ध्यान से समझें, फिर उत्तर दें

क्योंकि-

शब्द अनमोल हैं…
ज़ुबाँ से निकले बोल हैं,
शब्दों में धार होती है,
शब्दों की महिमा अपार होती,
शब्दों का विशाल भंडार होता है,

और सच तो यह है कि-
शब्दों का अपना एक संसार होता है

Different shades of the sky from my balcony

It’s a treat to watch the beautiful shades of the sky with different cloud formations daily…From Sunrise to sunset..There are so many shades of grey colours…blue colours.. shades of red orange yellow as well…Then the night sky covered with blackish grey clouds or a full sheet of stars covers the sky scattered here and there…Moon shining brightly…WOW!!

Amazing magic of the Universe. I just can’t take my eyes away from the sky.

Feels like I have another home amongst the beautiful clouds..so many friends and as well as different creatures to live with…horses, lion, rabbit, Fluffy dog…

Wow!! .Wow!! WoW11…..Awesome world!! It’s truly said imagination has no boundaries….It can take you anywhere….Sometimes, I imagine seeing Lord Krishna playing flute, sometimes Arjun’s chariot with horses, sometimes a complete village scenery, sometimes lakes, oceans, beautiful sunrises, sunsets, birds flying…

A different world where you can soar high and high, fly wherever you want, see the whole world from the top and enjoy its beauty….

What is your Kaika moment??

Kaika moment is a typical moment when something unknown starts or begins to blossom within us…

There is a kind of magic whenever a new passion sparkled. 💥💥

It can be well explained by the moment we fall in love..someone who didn’t even exist in our thoughts or hearts a moment before becomes our everything, our life, suddenly sweeps us off our feet becoming our central focus.

A writer says he didn’t know he will become a famous author until he came across a book that haf been left behind on a table at a hotel swimming pool, when he was on vacation…

The Kaika moment for me is that moment when I came across a book called “The Secret” and “The Law of Attraction” Universal law has been changing my whole world since then.

Kaika moment that makes you think YES this is it…I need to seize that moment and valur it…it xan light up the rest of my life…

What is your KAIKA moment?

Ichigo Ichie -Lesson #2 Dwell in the present

The practice of ichigo ichie will allow you to lead a happier, more fulfilled life, without feeling weighed down by the past or anxious about the future. You’ll learn to live fully in the present, acknowledging and appreciating the gift of every moment. 

Dwell in the present. 

We know we need to move ahead with our life. We can see clearly that we need to go forward. But sometimes we tend to take a U-turn to check back. But journeys into the past and the future are often painful and nearly always useless. It will never let us enjoy “NOW” Past might give us pain and Future gives us worries.

You can’t change what happened. You can’t know what will happen. But here in this moment, all the possibilities in the world are alive. So dwell in the moment. Make this moment worthwhile.

Live it to the fullest, enjoy the journey do not wait for others or things to be the reason for you enjoyment. Find your happy reason now…this moment…which will be soon gone and slip away like the sand in your fist.

Live, Laugh and Enjoy!!

Cheers

Ichigo Ichie Learnings #1

As described in my previous blog the meaning of Ichigo Ichie, I am back with some of my learnings

Ichigo ichie

What this wants to tell us is that each meeting, everything we experience is a unique treasure that will never be repeated in the same way again…So if we let it slip away without enjoying it, the moment will be lost for ever.

The practice of Ichigo Ichie will allow us to lead a happier more fulfilled life without feeling weighed down by the past or anxious about the future. You will learn to live fully in the present acknowledging and appreciating the gift of every moment. We need to learn to capture these moments mid flight and savor them, as these are once- in- a -life time experiences.

For example: Remember the first time when you achieved something on your own and you felt on top of the world. That experience or that feeling was unique to that moment…there will be second third…fourth…time…But the first time will never come back again…

Hold onto that feeling…and learn to live in the “NOW“😊

I need to be sad as currently others will not approve!!!

Isn’t it weird!!😱😱 I am sad as I do not want others to judge me..confused??🤔🤔 Well let me put it in a better way…

Now, suppose all the family members are suffering or sad about something. In some way I am not suffering or sad, but I go in front of them to talk to them, to make them feel good.to be with them and help them with all my heart to come out of that suffering.😊

On reaching out to them they expect me to express the same sadness, to feel what they are going through…talk about all those things with them again and again…Gradually, I fall into their emotional trap, guilt engulfs me and I also develop that feeling of sadness or suffering🙃 …and gradually start to feel like them….I fear of being judged by them, of being insensitive, of being selfish..

Is this correct??🤔🤔 The question here is can we tend to a sick person by being sick??? Can we help the poor person by becoming poor? Can we calm down a frustrated person by getting frustrated first??😊😱

A big NO, right?? Why do we have to mould ourselves and switch our feelings according to others. This will not help anyone.

Caring too much what others will think about will pull you down more .

🙃🙃

What I believe is that we need to uplift our feelings in such situations inorder to be of any help to others and also get them out of the miseries. When we keep our own mind clear and calm then only will get that courage as well as ability to guide them. For me positivity and calmness is the best tool.

Irony!!

I look at a distance

What do I see I do not know

Feel at peace from inside

But a silent storm is still there inside

Love to sit quietly for hours

Also look for someone to talk with me for hours

Enjoy my time at home

But want to travel around the world and explore new places

Not sure what I want to eat

Although sometimes I yearn for something to eat I dont know what

What an irony??

Irony of life

🙄🙄😑😑
