This beautiful picture looks my dream to me. I want to spread my wings and fly where the earth meets the sky. Like the hot air balloons which starts from earth fly in sky and reaches where these two meet.

Life is as colourful as this picture. I am seeing all colours in my life. Every day a new flower blooms leaves its fragrance and goes away after few days.

From the core of my heart I thank my magnificent Mother Earth for everything I am today!

Stay safe and healthy 😊

Test Your Hunger!

When you are feeling hungry, here is one Ayurvedic way to find out whether it is an emotional craving or a real biological need.

Drink some Licorice Tea, Chamomile tea or Mint Tea. If it is an emotional hunger , the warm soothing tea will take care of it and you will feel better.

If you are really hungry and need some food, the tea won’t diminish your appetite.

Try it out! It really worked well for me and  many whom I have advised.

Stay safe and healthy!
