Go for a walk.

That's one thing I do almost every day. .

A walk in the morning is a blessing for the whole day. *In picture:  @clubmahindra ,Poovar .

Clear the clutter.

When my mind is confused I declutter and organise things in my surroundings. It acts like a therapy to me and brings clarity to my mind. I enjoy decluttering and organising and when I do it, I am truly absorbed in it.

Weekends are generally when the cluttering in my house starts. It's a fact when the man of the house is in the house nothing stays in its designated place. So Monday is the day when I put things in order in the house it helps me sail through the week.

I bought this

Okay. Well I do think that I could do better than flaunting these loafers here. But seriously I am damn too lazy to find something better to share right now for the fms prompt - I bought this

I bought these loafers long time back from @bata.india and they are pretty good and comfortable. Great for every day use. .

Call a dear friend.

Day 9 of the 31 day selfcare challenge.

Nothing refreshes me like a good talk with a dear friend. So called my #bff from college days today. It had been a while and a call was long due. Can't complain, she is a mommy of 2 - a toddler and an infant and has her hands full. It was wonderful catching up with her

Sometimes for months we don't hear from each other but when we do it's like we catch up from where we left. Some relationships are with out any pretence. Ours is like that. I am so blessed to have a friend like her in my life.

And I am so excited at the prospect of meeting her and her two little munchkins in Jan. Fingers crossed.

In picture : GD and me enjoying a cup of coffee.

Soak up some sun this Saturday.

Day 8 of 31 day selfcare challenge @shailajav 
This is my favourite activity - soaking up some sunshine every morning.

Recently I came to know that I am vitamin D deficient, so can't really risk skipping enjoying some sunshine. The best thing the balcony in our home is easy facing and there is plenty of sunshine in the morning. A cup of tea and a book for company often adds to it.

Go to bed early tonight.

Day7 of the selfcare challenge @shailajav 
Early to bed and early to rise
Makes a man healthy, wealthy & wise.

Even the nursery rhymes gives us the wisdom we need today. I so very want to hit the bed early every day because I wake up earlier than others, but my two boys have very different sleeping preferences.
So, most of the times I don't succeed.

I did hit the bed early. But could I sleep. Well, you would know the answer.

Write a diary entry.

Day 6 of 31 day self care challenge by @shailajav

I will be honest here. While I love the idea of journaling and making diary notes, I am quite erratic in jotting down them down. My daily diary entry is just a list of to-do things for the day. Nothing fancy.

Some days when I am inspired to write something creative, I just type it into #notes or on #evernote on my mobile. 
I love this quote on journaling and I am hoping someday I will be inspired enough to do it regularly.

Mail (Read Caption)

For this prompt I was trying to find some mailbox in my photo archive but couldn't find one. 
So clicked a picture of the mailboxes for flats in our apartment complex.

With the advent of emails, we no longer receive letters in the mail these days.

I used to be a letter person - I mean the kind who loves writing hand written letters to friends and loved ones. During school days, I remember eagerly waiting for the postman to deliver the mail for the day and see if I have received a letter from my good friend @dasjumi  or from Zee. Gone are those days. Communication happens at the touch of buttons today and the charm of exchanging letters is sort of gone.

All we receive in the mail today are some bills. Not exciting! Right.
