Navratri: Celebrating the Divine Feminine and the Triumph of Good over Evil

Navratri is a nine-day festival that is celebrated with great enthusiasm and devotion in India. The word Navratri is derived from two words, ‘Nav’ which means ‘nine’, and ‘Ratri’ which means ‘night’. It is observed twice a year, once in the spring (Chaitra Navratri) and then in the autumn (Sharad Navratri). This festival is dedicated to the worship of the divine feminine, the goddess Durga, and her various incarnations.

During Navratri, people across India fast, pray and perform various rituals to honor the goddess. The festival begins with the worship of Maa Shailputri, the first form of Durga, and is followed by the worship of Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalratri, Mahagauri, and finally, Siddhidatri.

Each day of Navratri has its own significance and rituals. People clean their houses, decorate them with flowers and lights, and wear new clothes. In many regions of India, people also perform Garba and Dandiya Raas, which are traditional folk dances that are performed in circles. The dancers move in a circular motion, clapping their hands and hitting sticks in time with the music.

One of the most important aspects of Navratri is fasting. People abstain from food and some even from water during the day, and then break their fast in the evening with a special meal. The fast is observed to purify the body and mind and show devotion to the goddess.

Another important part of Navratri is the puja, or prayer ceremony. During the puja, devotees offer flowers, fruits, and other items to the goddess and seek her blessings. Special mantras and hymns are recited during the ceremony to honor the goddess.

Navratri is a time to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and to seek the blessings of the divine feminine. It is a festival that unites people of all ages and backgrounds and brings them together to celebrate the power and grace of the goddess. May the blessings of the divine mother be with you always. Jai Mata Di!

Mental Health: Why It’s Important and How to Take Care of It

Mental health is an integral part of our overall well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and behave in our daily lives. Good mental health enables us to cope with the stressors of life, form healthy relationships, and lead fulfilling lives. On the other hand, poor mental health can lead to a range of problems, including anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.

Despite its importance, mental health is often overlooked, stigmatized, or ignored. Many people feel ashamed or embarrassed to seek help when they’re struggling with mental health issues. This is a significant problem, as untreated mental health problems can worsen over time and have serious consequences.

So, what can we do to take care of our mental health? Here are some tips:

1. Prioritize self-care: Self-care is essential for good mental health. This means taking time for yourself to do things you enjoy, like reading, exercising, or spending time with friends and family. It also means taking care of your physical health by eating well, getting enough sleep, and avoiding harmful substances.

2. Seek support: It’s okay to ask for help when you’re struggling with mental health issues. You can talk to friends, family members, or a mental health professional. There are also many online resources available, like support groups and hotlines.

3. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is a practice that involves being present in the moment and paying attention to your thoughts and feelings without judgment. It can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.

4. Reduce stress: Stress is a common trigger for mental health problems. To reduce stress, try relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation, or yoga. You can also try to simplify your life by saying no to commitments that don’t serve you and delegating tasks when possible.

5. Stay connected: Social support is crucial for good mental health. Stay connected with friends and family members, even if it’s just through a phone call or text message.

Remember, mental health is just as important as physical health. Taking care of your mental health is not a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of strength. By prioritizing self-care, seeking support, practicing mindfulness, reducing stress, and staying connected, you can improve your mental health and lead a happier, healthier life.

Elon Musk explains why his daughter can’t marry a poor man!

Wealth is first of all a state of mind.

A few years ago there was a conference in the United States on investment and finance. One of the speakers was Elon Musk and during the question and answer session, he was asked a question that had everyone laughing.

If he, the richest man in the world, could accept that his daughter marry a poor or modest man.

His answer can change something in everyone.

Elon Musk – First of all, understand that
Wealth does not mean having a fat bank account. Wealth is primarily the ability to create wealth.
Example: Someone who wins the lottery or gambling. Even if he wins 100 millions is not a rich man: He is a poor man with a lot of money. That’s the reason why 90% of the lottery millionaires become poor again after 5 years.

You also have rich people who have no money.
Example: Most entrepreneurs.
THEY are already on the road to wealth even though they have no money, because they are developing their financial intelligence and that is wealth.

How are the rich and the poor different?

To put it simply: The rich may die to become rich, while the poor may kill to become rich.

If you see a young person who decides to train, to learn new things, who tries to improve himself constantly, know that he is a rich man.

If you see a young person who thinks that the problem is the state, and who thinks that the rich are all thieves and who criticizes constantly, know that he is a poor man.

The rich are convinced that they just need information and training to take off, the poor think that others must give them money to take off.

In conclusion, when I say that my daughter will not marry a poor man, I am not talking about money. I’m talking about the ability to create wealth in that man.

Excuse me for saying this, but most criminals are poor people. When they are in front of money, they lose their mind, that’s why they rob, steal etc… For them it is a grace because they don’t know how they could earn money by themselves.

One day, the guard of a bank found a bag full of money, he took the bag and went to give it to the bank manager.

People called this man an idiot, but in reality this man was just a rich man who had no money.

One year later, the bank offered him a job as a receptionist, 3 years later he was a customer manager and 10 years later he manages the regional management of this bank, he manages hundreds of employees and his annual bonus exceeds the amount he could have stolen.

Wealth is first of all a state of mind.

So … are u rich or poor?🙂

5 reasons why Career Counselling is important!

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.”

Students are under a lot of pressure – pressure to perform academically, pressure to be popular, pressure to ultimately, make a good life. The one thread that touches upon all these is the choice of one’s career. It is a decision that is often taken under parental or societal duress. However, one must seek proper career counseling and guidance to make the right decision. Career counseling is really beneficial for students, and there are many reasons it is imperative:

  1. Spot an Aptitude: Career counseling helps a student realize true aptitude. While at a junior level, most students perform evenly across subjects. Aptitude tests, conducted by counselors, bring out clearly the strong intellectual areas of a particular student. This empowers the student to make an informed decision when choosing future studies and making career choices.
  2. An Objective Guide: Many times, students grow up with preconceived notions – “I must become a doctor, since my father is one”. Good counseling can quell these notions, and help the student view himself for the individual that he really is. After all, the doctor’s son can actually be more suited to, and more interested in, being a musician!
  3. Evade Confusion: Often, students haven’t developed a clear idea of what they’d want to study by the time they’re due to make those choices. This isn’t necessarily due to any lack of interest; one is simply too young. Seeking career counseling leads to clarity of thought in a student, helps to identify interests, pick the appropriate subjects, and finally, make the choice of the right career.
  4. Career Relation to Education: It is also likely that a student has decided on a particular career, but is not sure of how to qualify for it academically. Seeking counseling helps to put things in proper perspective – the student chooses the right higher education for the chosen career, and likewise, is able to land safely on the career track, due the interest, motivational factors and the chosen stream of education.
  5. What’s Out There: Perhaps the most important facet of career counseling is to simply know what career options abound today. Say, a student has great flair for writing. It is important that the student or individual is well informed about the prospects of taking writing as a career. Lack of information on the will let the individual or student abandon his talent and intellect.

Sadly, career counseling is often overlooked by students, institutions and parents alike. It is a mistake that can prove costly, for it is sound counseling that leads to well-informed, correct career decisions!

The young man ran from Rajasthan to Delhi, the reason is very special

Suresh (from Seekar, Rajasthan) runs from Rajasthan to Delhi to inspire Army aspirants

Recruitment rallies have not been organized in the Army in the last two years due to the Corona epidemic. Yes and there is a lot of resentment among the youth of Rajasthan regarding this matter. Churu, Jhunjhunu, Sikar and Nagaur districts have been affected the most by stopping the recruitment process here. Let us tell you that now from campaigning on social media to picketing demonstrations are being organized to start recruitment in these districts. Amidst all this, Nagaur resident Suresh Bhichar has done a shocking job to attract the attention of the government to this issue. Yes, Suresh has completed the journey from Sikar to Delhi by running. According to the information received, Suresh, who left the district stadium of Sikar at 9 pm on 29 March, reached Delhi at 6 pm on 2 April.

After reaching here, he submitted a memorandum to the MP Hanuman Beniwal. Let us tell you that Suresh completed the journey of 300 kilometers in a total of fifty hours. After completing the journey, Suresh told that he had set a target of completing the 6 km run in one hour. Yes and there were three more friends for patrolling with him in the journey.

The hybrid work model: welcome to the new way of working

6 best practices for successful remote working

A hybrid work model offers the best of both worlds – a mix of on-site and remote working. For instance, an employee could work from home three days a week and spend two days in the office. Or there may be specific days where leaders expect staff members to attend in-person meetings. This kind of arrangement allows employees to retain the flexibility they’ve enjoyed when working from home yet still have those vital face-to-face connections with colleagues that are so important for collaboration and wellbeing.

Hybrid work is slightly different from a hybrid team, where some of the group work on-site together some or all of the time while others are fully remote.

Let’s take a look at the different types of the hybrid work model:

Remote first

This is where anyone who has the tools to work remotely is allowed to do so most of the time. Most organizations adopted the remote-first model at the start of the pandemic when it was considered unsafe to travel on public transport and mix with people outside your household. And some of them, including Shopify and Upwork, have said they’ll stick with the remote-first model even after the pandemic begins to recede.

Office occasional

Businesses continue to work remotely and seek to take advantage of in-person meetings and employee team-building that a workplace environment can nurture. In this model, employees come into the office for one or two days a week, allowing them to chat with co-workers and attend important team meetings face to face.

Office first

where organizations prefer that most people work from the office, although they still offer a remote policy. Some employees have the freedom to work from home as and when they need to, but it’s not actively encouraged.

Why Hybrid work?

For a while now, hybrid work has been growing in popularity thanks to faster internet, cloud collaboration tools, and a greater emphasis on promoting a healthy work-life balance. But it only really came into its own during the pandemic in the urgency for businesses everywhere to sever the ties of traditional working.

Although not every organization can adopt a hybrid model, it’s becoming the dominant way of working in some sectors like finance and tech. Major brands like Facebook, Microsoft, PwC and KPMG are among the companies now embracing hybrid work.

Jon Holt, chief executive at KPMG UK, says: “We trust our people. Our new way of working will empower them and enable them to design their own working week. The pandemic has proven it’s not about where you work, but how you work.”

Working from home has many benefits that employees don’t want to lose. So much so that it’s becoming increasingly important for organizations to offer hybrid working to attract and retain talent. In fact, 30% of employees say they would consider switching jobs if their organization returned to entirely on-site work after the pandemic.

We’ve yet to see how the hybrid work model will play out in the long term. Policies, practices and collaboration technology will evolve as organizations find their feet with it. But it’s a fair assumption that going into the workplace just for the sake of it will no longer be a necessary part of working life.

What are the advantages of hybrid work?

A well-thought-out hybrid work model can be great for collaboration, productivity and employee satisfaction. Reasons for adopting a hybrid model include:

• Public health
Covid restrictions, including social distancing, are still in place in many countries, and there is still a lot of anxiety about returning to offices. Hybrid work makes it possible to have some office presence while helping people feel safe.

This is particularly critical for people with compromised immune systems or those caring for them. A hybrid workplace can also reduce the spread of illness as employees can choose to work from home if they don’t feel well.

• Improved work-life balance
By offering hybrid working, you’re giving staff the chance to achieve a better work-life balance, with reduced stress, less commuting and more time for activities other than work.

More than 50% of employees say they’d like to work remotely at least some of the time,2 with many preferring a hybrid working pattern because it gives them the freedom to choose where they feel most comfortable working.

• Wider talent pool
If your organization offers a combination of in-person and remote working, you’ll be able to cast your talent net wider and attract people who otherwise would not have applied for a job with you.

It means you’ll no longer be confined to hiring employees in the local area. Someone who lives further afield may want to work for you if they only have to be physically in the office, say, one day a week or just for meetings.

• Greater productivity
Even before the pandemic hit, evidence suggested that remote working could boost productivity because of fewer distractions at home. Employers can see the benefits too. After adopting remote working practices during the pandemic, many business leaders saw that their organizations were at least as productive as before.

• Employee satisfaction
Hybrid working is popular with employees because of the flexibility to work outside the office at least some of the time. Some people prefer the buzz of being in the office, whereas others like the solitude of being at home. Hybrid work can provide the right employee experience for both groups. It also brings opportunities for collaborative working, which can boost morale and a feeling of togetherness.

• Savings on office costs
Remote working reduces the need for office space, saving organizations a lot of money, both in terms of office size and the cost of maintaining the building. Savings on utilities like heating and air-conditioning, as well as printing and stationery, can be substantial.

• A huge opportunity to change culture
If there is a silver lining to the past couple of years, it’s that the pandemic has brought about a positive shift in the mindset towards a work-from-anywhere culture. It’s shown that business leaders can trust most people to work on their own initiative and, in many cases, has cultivated more caring relationships between managers and their teams.

A hybrid workplace can also help build a resilient culture by preparing you for future disruptions. With many employees already working from home, you can easily go back to a fully remote operation if necessary.

What are the challenges of hybrid work?

While the hybrid workplace model seems to strike the right balance, it’s not without its flaws. Challenges of adopting a hybrid model include:

• Mismatch in expectations of hybrid work
Broadly speaking, employers are keener for staff to return to work in person than employees. That disconnect is made clear in a recent report by McKinsey[SC5] . More than three-quarters of senior executives surveyed say they expect the typical ‘core’ employee to be back in the office at least three days a week.

But nearly three-quarters of employees say they would like to work from home for two or more days a week, and 52% want at least three days of remote working.

• Difficulties in maintaining relationships
Being in a hybrid team is a bit like being in a long-distance relationship. It requires trust, regular contact and a lot of determination to make it work.

When people are working together all the time, it’s relatively easy to collaborate, give feedback, get help, participate in meetings and build solid foundations within teams. And when everyone is working remotely, people become familiar with virtual collaboration and know to stay in touch with regular check-ins and virtual chats. But when teams are split, a disconnect can develop between those in the office and those at home.

• Lack of spontaneous interaction
Many people enjoy the random chats that happen in the workplace. Remote employees can feel they miss out on office culture, spontaneous communication and team activities. Being there in person makes it easier to interact with each other, have instant catch-ups and socialize after work. Many of the challenges hybrid teams face come down to ease of connection.

• Having to engage hybrid teams in new ways
Keeping remote workers engaged can be hard work and time-consuming – which is why some leaders perhaps don’t give it as much attention as they should. Previously, you could walk around the office, notice body language and problem-solve when needed. Now, it’s much harder to pick up on people’s emotions if you can’t see them in person. There’s a risk that disillusionment will fester unless you find ways to recreate the office culture at home..

• Imbalance in the way off-site and on-site workers are treate
Rightly or wrongly, people sometimes feel that on-site workers get preferential treatment to remote workers. Leaders may view employees ‘seen’ in the office as more dedicated and give them more support. Remote workers may feel overlooked for training and promotion opportunities because they’re less visible than those in the office.

• Harder for new recruits to learn from more experienced staff
This is one of the biggest challenges of hybrid working. New hires can find it very difficult to learn the ropes if they only spend limited time with colleagues in the office. Not only that, forming bonds with co-workers is much harder if they don’t have any in-person interaction. This can lead to feelings of isolation and frustration.

• Impact on culture
The sense of belonging in an organization may not be as strong as when people are there all the time. Remote workers can feel less connected, out of the loop and like they can’t contribute as much, ultimately feeling like they don’t really fit in. All team members need to feel invested in the success of each other and the business.

The hybrid work environment

When you’re managing a hybrid work environment, there are a few things to think about that you might not have had to consider before. One of the major ones is the physical space. If, for example, you have 150 employees in total, you won’t need a building that can accommodate all of them at the same time.

Some employees might only work in the office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, while others may come in for a weekend shift, so you can use a hot desking system instead. It’s essential to get an accurate understanding of when people will be in the building so you find the right space for your needs. Facebook offices in some countries, for example, are open at 10% but accepts requests for people to be in-office via an online form with a 1-2 week turnaround time for approval

Many organizations are now completely reimagining their physical work environment to function better with hybrid work. Modern offices are becoming more of a flexible space for collaboration and team building rather than a formal full-time workplace with rows of desks.

Your set-up could include having more social spaces so people can make the most of collaborating when they’re on-site. Another idea is to have hubs where people can meet clients and meeting rooms fully equipped for physical and virtual meetings. Some companies are also investing in new touchless technology to replace surfaces like buttons and handles to address Covid health concerns.

How to do hybrid work

Simply telling people they can split their time between home and the office and hoping it will all be fine won’t cut it. You’ll need to develop a solid hybrid workplace strategy. Here are some things to think about to help you get it right.

Transparency in hybrid work policies

Put policies in place that clearly outline what’s expected of your workforce. If some staff are allowed to work remotely but others aren’t, people need to know the rationale behind this decision to avoid conflict and resentment. Questions to answer include:

• how many days should people be on-site?

• what work is done better in person than virtually?

• should certain members of staff be in the office at the same time for meetings and collaboration?

It’s important to get feedback on new policies and make tweaks as you move forward until you’ve found a hybrid model that works best for you.

Hybrid work schedule

Just like many businesses have rotas for different shift patterns, consider the same for your hybrid workers. This can avoid employees always being on-site with the same people or being in the office on their own when everyone else is working from home.

As well as showing where employees are working, rotas can help you see what people are working, so everyone is in the loop. Alternatively, you could use shared calendars, so they know when people plan on being in the office.

Task allocation

Team leaders can optimize schedules based on what type of work is better suited to the office or home environment.

Asynchronous tasks are the ones you can complete without input from others, like data entry or putting together a solo presentation. These are ideal for doing at home, where people can schedule large blocks of uninterrupted time. Synchronous tasks, on the other hand, are better suited to an office environment. These are jobs that require group collaboration, brainstorming, chat or creativity.


Trust is the bedrock of any hybrid workplace. Even after the success of home working during the pandemic, some managers still think that remote workers take advantage of their freedom and regularly slack off. Managers need to trust those working remotely to get their work done without micromanaging.

Gartner research shows that employees who feel trusted are 76% more engaged than those in workplaces with low levels of trust. Learning to let go can create an altogether calmer working environment, especially for remote workers who often feel they have to put in more hours to prove they’re working hard. That said, you do still need to check in with them regularly to make sure they’re happy.


Communicating with remote workers is different from those on-site and may need more thought. You might need more frequent check-ins to see how people are coping with working from home and if they need any extra support, whether that’s more IT, a better chair or mindfulness guidance.

It might be helpful to carry out regular pulse surveys and ‘ask-me-anything’ sessions that give you instant feedback on employee engagement and morale in a hybrid working environment. Show that you welcome honesty and expressions of vulnerability and that everyone has a voice.


Give some careful thought to inclusivity and how teams can work together seamlessly in a hybrid set-up. It’s vital not to add to existing inequalities by sidelining those who mainly work remotely, for example, carers, working mothers and people with disabilities. There is often an unconscious bias against home workers, so make sure they’re given the same opportunities and feel as valued as those who return to the office.

Managers should also pay particular attention to onboarding new recruits so they don’t feel left out and unable to forge relationships with their co-workers. Initially, it might be a good idea for them to spend most of their time on-site sitting next to colleagues who can mentor them and answer any questions they might have, making sure they feel included in your new, hybrid workplace.

6 best practices for successful remote working

Virtual workers can overcome the challenges of not being together in the same workplace. Follow these six key tips for successful remote working.

• Create boundaries between work and life
Working from home can blur the lines between your work and personal life. It’s essential to separate these two worlds and switch off after your working day ends otherwise you risk burnout. Ideally, create a workspace that you can physically walk out of when you’re done for the day so you can distance yourself from your laptop and other work devices.

Get more advice on balancing working from home with your personal life.

• Keep track of your time
One of the golden rules of remote working is managing your time effectively. As a homeworker, you’re likely to work longer hours and take fewer breaks.

Estimate how long each task is going to take and set yourself realistic targets. You could also use a time tracker app or alarm to help you stay on track.

• Be present when you’re in work mode
Unlike in a traditional office, nobody is watching you, and colleagues won’t always know what you’re working on. Stay visible by replying quickly to messages and comments and regularly checking in with your co-workers.

• Be accountable
When remote workers know they’ll be accountable for their work, they’re more focused on doing tasks well. One idea is for each team member to share what they’ve achieved over the previous week and what their plans are for the week ahead. That way, you can see what others are working on and what they’re responsible for.

• Connect with your colleagues
When employees aren’t sharing a physical workspace, it takes extra effort to make sure they feel connected and still have those ‘water-cooler moments.’

Getting to know your colleagues beyond just work helps you build a stronger bond. Connect with your social communities and take time out for virtual coffee breaks and fun activities where you can have a laugh together.

• Evaluate your productivity
No one expects you to be at full speed all day, every day. That said, you probably shouldn’t be going AWOL for half the day when you have things to achieve. Being a happy and successful remote worker means figuring out what works best for you.

For example, are there times of the day when you’re more focused and can tackle some of your harder tasks? Or would a different break time mean less chance of flagging in the afternoon? Work it out and work accordingly.

5 best practices for managing teams remotely

5 best practices for managing teams remotely

As a manager, you need to strike the right balance between being visible to your employees and not micro-managing them. Follow these remote management best practices to create a happy and productive workforce.

Get to know your organization’s remote work policy

Your organization’s remote work policy should outline when and how employees can work from locations other than the office and go into detail about all aspects of remote work.

This includes things like flexible working, legal rights and security requirements. Knowing your way around the policy will support your decision-making and help you answer questions from your team.


How you communicate is a big factor in successfully managing a remote team. Reach out regularly, not just when things go wrong.

A daily check-in can be as simple as asking how everyone is, then following up with what deadlines you have coming up or what everyone is working on for the day. For weekly catch-ups, it’s a good idea to have video chats to keep the personal connection going.

Get good software

Make sure people have the tools they need to perform at their peak no matter where they work. Choose software that everyone on your team feels comfortable with and helps people share resources, make comments and work on documents together in one single location.

The 2021 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends Report shows that business leaders see introducing a digital collaboration platform as the most important factor in making remote working sustainable for organizations.

Offer training opportunities

But it’s not all about software. It’s your people, too. Remote staff still need training, just as they would in an office environment so don’t let development opportunities slide just because they need to happen online.

Invest in virtual learning resources for remote employees to access from anywhere. This can include a digital library, access to online learning platforms, regular webinars and lunch and learn sessions.

Recognize success

Working remotely can make people feel unnoticed and undervalued, so it’s important to create a positive workplace culture where team members feel appreciated. An effective recognition program motivates people and makes them feel part of a community even though they may be working alone.

Recognition doesn’t need to be monetary – it could be public acknowledgment, development opportunities or low-cost perks

India achieved 100 crore vaccinations target against the deadly CORONA Virus.

Before we congratulate ourselves, and thank our doctors, our nursing staff , other medical fraternity, vaccine manufacturers, corporates and democratically elected government….. Let’s spare a look for what some of our detractors have been telling us for last 12 months…

Here’s what pseudo liberal coterie said about India’s vaccination attempts.. 🤭

Chetan Bhagat – India cannot vaccinate it’s population before 2024. We will have to bet other rich countries for vaccines and will only get leftovers..

TMC leader and Ex- Prasar Bharti ceo (cong appointed) Jawahar Sarkar – India will take 100 months (8+ years) to vaccinate 100 crore.

Rohini Singh ( of WIRE) – India is doing nothing for vaccines, only trying to save cows.

Swati Chaturvedi (troll and dynasty worshipper) – Rahul Gandhi has rightly said that it will take many years for India to get vaccines and vaccinate it’s people.

Congress twitter -India’s vaccination is very slow. IT will take 12 yrs and 6 months to vaccinate 70% people.

Aam Aadmi party ( on twitter)
It will take 15 yrs to vaccinate India .

Surya Pratap Singh ( first babu to be relieved from duty due to incompetence) – vaccines are jumla. It will take 7 years to free people from corona.

India Today ( headed by pro Congress Arun Poorie) – it will take 12 yrs to vaccinate Indians.

Business Today – it will take 10.8 years to vaccinate 70% India.

The Hindu ( actually anti hindu ) -India will achieve only 15% of its vaccination target.

British Broadcasting Corporation – India doesn’t have vaccines to vaccinate it’s population.

VOX- ( leftist newsletter) – India cannot vaccinate it’s way out of corona…

Actually these people were right … Because for almost 70 years they had seen India as third world country with below par medical services, average track record of efficiency, high level of corruption and bureaucracy everywhere including government and health sector.

Because they mocked us, we became strong,
because they laughed at us , we decided to fight back
Because they told us that we can never DO IT… We went ahead and did it.
Because they said Indians lack fighting spirit, We FOUGHT BACK.

On Behalf of crores of Indians, I would like to thank all these negativity spreaders, all these doubters and opposition who made our resolve stronger, all those who through their sarcasm and taunts , United crores of Indians in our resolve to prove all them wrong, all these people who mocked us, laughed at us , tried to shame us as a third world country but ended up making each Indian aware of the vaccination efforts by our Medical and corporate fraternity.

Jai Hind, Jai Bharat 👍

Teacher And A Guru…What’s The Difference Between The Two? #GuruPunima2021

The way we use the term ‘guru’ in the west (since we don’t understand it very well) is like a sort of ‘super teacher’.

There are a lot of people that present themselves as gurus, and that has nothing to do with whether they’re gurus or not, in the real sense of the term ‘guru.’

The difference is that a teacher points the way; the guru is the way.

The guru is a cooked goose, all their seeds are burned and they’re free, so when you’re with them, they are a clean mirror, so you only see your own stuff; that’s all you see, you don’t see your stuff mixed with their stuff, because they don’t have any stuff.  With the teacher, you never know what you’re getting, because part of what you see is their stuff, and part of it is your stuff.

You can certainly pick very high teachers. I mean I’m a teacher, obviously, I’m sitting up here teaching – I’m not a guru, but I’m a teacher, and the only way you know them is by your intuitive heart; and my suggestion is that the only thing you owe a teacher is for you to get yourself free. You don’t owe a teacher loyalty. A lot of people say, ‘Well, I’ve been teaching you now, support me or take care of me, or sign and promise me you will’ and I think that’s all nonsense. I think you should take what you can from every teacher, and then go on.

I think that the idea should be to focus on teachings not teachers.

If you focus on teachers rather than teachings, you will spend all your time becoming a connoisseur of clay feet; you know, ‘Is this one pure enough for me to take a teaching from?’ while all I know is when I need a teaching of some sort, I go towards somebody who’s teaching that, and I take the teaching, and I keep taking the part of that which feels intuitively right with my own heart; I do not take any teaching from somebody that goes against my own heart. Every time I have done that, there has been a karmic cost to that, because only intuitively do I know what I need, and I must trust that more than I must trust somebody else telling me what I need.

– Ram Dass, excerpt from the 1989 Summer Retreats – The Listening Heart – Spiritual Practice/Daily Life (Q&A)

India clocked its highest ever single day vaccination numbers

Today, India has has given around 85 lakh vaccination doses. This is the highest single day number in the world. Thus India has vaccinated around the population of Israel or twice the population of New Zealand in a single day.

This has been driven by the efficient model of centralised model of vaccination along with ground level efforts by state governments.

NDA ruled states performed outstandingly in ramping up vaccination numbers. NDA ruled states accounted for around 70% of all vaccinations done today.

MP CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan had strived to achieve a big target today, which they did by vaccinating around 15 lakh. Similarly Karnataka vaccinated more than 10 lakh people. UP, Gujarat, Haryana were other leaders who all vaccinated more than/around 5 lakh people.

A stark contrast was visible with the lacklustre performance of opposition ruled states. Punjab, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Delhi on the other hand were not able to cross even 1 lakh vaccinations. Punjab, Chattisgarh & Delhi each have been given indicated availability of around 8 lakh vaccines till the end of this month. Chattisgarh has been indicated availability of around 3.5 lakh vaccines till the end of this month. Maharashtra also vaccinated around 3.6 lakh people, which is below par given its population and despite the availability of more than 33 lakh vaccines till the end of this month.

What are the 8 laws of karma?

“Simply, everything you do creates either a positive or negative consequence,”

Everything is energy, including your thoughts and emotions, which are energy in motion. So, in essence, everything you do creates a corresponding energy that comes back to you in some form.

Using karma as a set of powerful guidelines for your life can incentivize you to be more mindful of your thoughts, actions, and deeds before you make decisions. 

With that in mind, think of the laws of karma as guidelines to follow as you go through daily life. The 12 laws of karma can help you understand how karma really works and how to create good karma in your life. Let’s look at each of these laws in more detail.

1. The great law or the law of cause and effect

When most people talk about karma, they’re likely referring to the great law of cause and effect. According to this law, whatever thoughts or energy you put out, you get back — good or bad. In order to get what you want, you have to embody and be worthy of those things. It’s the concept of what you reap, you sow. “For example, if you want love in your life, be loving to yourself,”

2. The law of creation

The law of creation underscores the importance that life doesn’t just happen to us. To make things happen in your life, you need to take action, instead of waiting for something to magically come your way. “You are the co-creator of making what you want, based on your intentions,” Also consider how you can use your skills, talents, and strengths to create something that not only benefits you but others, too

3. The law of humility

Creator of The Daily Meditation, the law of humility is based on the principle that you must be humble enough to accept that your current reality is the result of your past actions. For example, if you’re blaming your colleagues for your poor performance at work, Harrison says you must accept that you created this reality by not performing as well as you could have.

4. The law of growth

Growth starts within us. To positively shape the world, you need to start with yourself. That’s because real change or personal growth begins with what you have control over, which is yourself, not others. The law of growth also looks at the things you can’t control and how you deal with accepting this fate. Ultimately, your focus should be on you, not trying to control the people or things around you.

5. The law of responsibility

Alex Tran, a yoga instructor based in Seattle, Washington, says the law of responsibility is her favorite law to teach in class. “It’s a reminder that you own what happens to you in life. It’s a great reminder that what happens to you is because of you. This eliminates the opportunity for you to look outward to find the cause of your problems,” Tran explains. She likes to use this to describe the karma law of responsibility: “You are the product of the choices you make.”

6. The law of focus

Focusing on too many things at once can slow you down and lead to frustration and negativity. That’s why the law of focus encourages you to concentrate on one thing at a time. “If you focus on higher values like love and peace, then you’re less likely to be distracted by heavy feelings of resentment, greed, or anger,” Patel says.

7. The law of here and now

To experience peace of mind, you have to embrace the present. This can only happen when you let go of negative thoughts or behaviors from your past. If you get too focused on past events, you’ll keep reliving them. One exercise Patel recommends to get in touch with the here and now is to get rooted into your senses. “Look around the room you are in, focus your eyes on something, blink, and say ‘I am here,’” she says.

8. law of change

According to this principle, history will continue to repeat itself until you learn from the experience and take steps to do something differently to stop the cycle. Change gives you a new path so that you can create a new future and a better version of yourself, free from the patterns of the past.

आज महफूज़ रहे तो कल मिल के खिलखिलाएँगे!

आज महफूज़ रहे तो कल मिल के खिलखिलाएँगे, गले भी मिलेगे और हाथ भी मिलाएंगे।।

आज सलामत रहे तो कल की सहर देखेंगे
आज पहरे मे रहे तो कल का पहर देखेंगें ।
सासों के चलने के लिए कदमों का रुकना ज़रूरी है
घरों मेँ बंद रहना दोस्तों हालात की मजबूरी है ।
अब भी न संभले तो बहुत पछताएंगे
सूखे पत्तों की तरह हालात की आंधी मे बिखर जाएंगे ।
यह जंग मेरी या तेरी नहीं हम सब की है
इस की जीत या हार भी हम सब की है ।
अपने लिए नहीं अपनों के लिए जीना है
यह जुदाई का ज़हर दोस्तो घूंट घूंट पीना है ।
आज महफूज़ रहे तो कल मिल के खिलखिलाएँगे
गले भी मिलेगे और हाथ भी मिलाएंगे।।।

This Diwali is more about being hopeful, for a healthy & happy tomorrow.

This Diwali is different. This Diwali is not about whether my house is sparkling clean, it is not about whether I have prepared a variety of mithais and namkeens, it is not about whether I have that perfect ethnic attire and jewelry for the occasion, it is not about a bucketful of bucks I would be spending on shopping and firecrackers, it is not about having a grand vacation at an exotic location, it is not even about whether I got a promotion or a raise…

This Diwali is more about Survival. It is about being grateful that we are still able to breathe and alive for this day. It is about being thankful for the love and care from our loved ones, It about being with the family under one roof and spending time together, It is about lighting a Diya for all those dear and near souls who left us, It is about extending support and spreading cheer to family and friends who have lost their people…It is about spreading happiness to those who have suffered losses in jobs and businesses…

This Diwali is more about being hopeful, for a healthy & happy tomorrow.

मोदी सरकार ने राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति 2020 (NEP) को मंजूरी दी और मानव संसाधन विकास मंत्रालय का नाम बदलकर शिक्षा मंत्रालय कर दिया गया गया। देश के बुद्धिजीवी जमात और शोशल मीडिया में जहां एक ओर इस नीति की प्रशंसा हुई वहीं कुछ लोग इफ बट मोदी जी किया है तो गलते होगा कि तर्ज पर नुश्क निकालना शुरू कर दिए। हमने जब इस नीति को धैर्यपूर्वक पढ़कर इसकी समीक्षा की तो सोचा आम जनों के जेहन में भी इस नई नीति के बारे में अनेकों सवाल उठ रहे होंगे, इसलिये हमने एक प्रश्नोत्तरी के माध्यम से अपने पाठकों की जिज्ञासा खत्म करने की कोशिश की है।

आइए राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति 2020 को विस्तार से प्रश्न- उत्तर शैली में समझते हैं!

1.सवाल: राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति 2020 में बताए गए सुधार व बदलाव कैसे लागू होंगे?

उत्तर:- राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति (NEP) में अभी शिक्षा सुधारों के सुझावों को मंजूरी मिली है।इन सुधारों का क्रियान्वयन होना बाकी है। जरूरी नहीं है कि नई शिक्षा नीति के सभी सुझाव मान ही लिए जाए, क्योंकि शिक्षा एक समवर्ती विषय है जिस पर केंद्र व राज्य सरकारें दोनों कानून बना सकती हैं। नई शिक्षा नीति में शिक्षा में सुधार के जो सुझाव दिए गए हैं, वो राज्य सरकारों व केंद्र के सहयोग से लागू किए जाएंगे।

2.सवाल: नई शिक्षा नीति कब लागू होगी?

उत्तर: राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति 2020 अभी इतनी जल्दी लागू होने वाली नहीं है। सरकार ने खुद राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति के सुझावों को पूरी तरह से लागू करने के लिए 2040 का टारगेट रखा है। हालांकि, इसके कई सुझाव आने वाले दो-तीन सालों में लागू हो सकते हैं। राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति 2020 के फाइनल ड्राफ्ट में कहा गया है कि 2040 तक भारत के लिए एक ऐसी शिक्षा प्रणाली का लक्ष्य होना चाहिए, जहां किसी भी सामाजिक और आर्थिक पृष्ठभूमि से संबंध रखने वाले शिक्षार्थियों को समान रूप से सर्वोच्च गुणवत्ता की शिक्षा उपलब्ध हो। शिक्षा नीति को लागू करने के लिए फंड अहम है, इसलिए असल दिक्कत इसे लागू करने में होगी। 1968 में बनी पहली राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति फंड के अभाव की वजह से पूरी तरह से लागू नहीं हो पाई थी।

3.सवाल: क्या बोर्ड की परीक्षाएं होंगी या नहीं?

उत्तर: नई शिक्षा नीति में दसवीं और बारहवीं कक्षा की बोर्ड परीक्षाओं में बड़े बदलाव किए गए हैं। बोर्ड की परीक्षाएं होंगी, लेकिन इनके महत्व को कम किया जाएगा। साल में दो बार बोर्ड परीक्षाएं होंगी, लेकिन विद्यार्थियों पर अब बोर्ड परीक्षाओं का दबाव कम हो जाएगा। विद्यार्थियों के रटने की प्रवृत्ति को कम करने के लिए विषयों के कॉन्सेप्ट और ज्ञान को महत्व दिया गया है। विद्यार्थियों को बोर्ड परीक्षाएं पास करने के लिए कोचिंग की जरूरत नहीं होगी।

बोर्ड परीक्षाओं को दो हिस्सों- वस्तुनिष्ठ और व्याख्त्मक श्रेणियों में विभाजित किया गया है।परीक्षा में मुख्य जोर ज्ञान के परीक्षण पर होगा ताकि छात्रों में रटने की प्रवृत्ति खत्म हो। विभिन्न बोर्ड आने वाले वक्त में बोर्ड परीक्षाओं के प्रैक्टिकल मॉडल को तैयार करेंगे। नई शिक्षा नीति के तहत कक्षा तीन, पांच एवं आठवीं में भी परीक्षाएं होगीं। 10वीं व 12वीं की बोर्ड परीक्षाएं बदले स्वरूप में होंगी। बोर्ड परीक्षाओं को लेकर ये अहम बदलाव 2022-23 वाले सत्र से लागू करने की मंशा है। दरअसल, 10+2 की जगह नई शिक्षा नीति में 5+3+3+4 की बात की गई है।

4.सवाल: जो बच्चे अभी नर्सरी में हैं, उनको क्या करना है?

उत्तर: जो बच्चे अभी नर्सरी में हैं, उनके अभिभावकों को 5+3+3+4 फॉर्मूला समझने में मुश्किल हो रही होगी। पहले यह बता दें कि अभी नई शिक्षा नीति का क्रियान्वयन नहीं हुआ है। इसलिए, सारे बदलाव इसके क्रियान्वयन के बाद होंगे। अभी जैसे चल रहा है, उसी तरह से चलेगा। लेकिन इसके लागू होने के बाद प्ले स्कूल के शुरुआती साल भी अब स्कूली शिक्षा में जुड़ेंगे। यह सबसे अहम बदलाव है।

अब बच्चे 6 साल की जगह 3 साल की उम्र में फ़ॉर्मल स्कूल में जाने लगेंगे। अभी तक 6 साल की उम्र में बच्चे पहली क्लास मे जाते थे, नई शिक्षा नीति लागू होने पर भी 6 साल में बच्चा पहली क्लास में ही होगा। पर पहले के 3 साल भी फॉर्मल शिक्षा वाले होंगे। यानी कि प्ले-स्कूल के शुरुआती साल भी स्कूली शिक्षा में जुड़ेंगे।

5. सवाल: जो अगले साल कॉलेज जाएंगे उनके लिए क्या?

उत्तर: नई शिक्षा नीति में उच्च शिक्षा में कई अहम बदलाव किए गए हैं। लेकिन ये बदलाव कब से लागू होंगे इसे लेकर अभी कोई जानकारी नहीं दी गई है। बारहवीं के बाद अभी जो विद्यार्थी कॉलेज जाएंगे, ऐसे में संभव है कि वो विद्यार्थी पुराने स्नातक और स्नातकोत्तर पाठ्यक्रम के हिसाब से ही दाखिला पाएंगे। दरअसल, नई शिक्षा नीति के हिसाब से अब ग्रेजुएशन में छात्र चार साल का कोर्स पढ़ेगें, जिसमें बीच में कोर्स को छोड़ने की गुंजाइश भी दी गई है। छात्र अगर कोर्स बीच में ही छोड़ देते हैं, तो उनको ड्रापआउट घोषित नहीं किया जाएगा।

  1. सवाल: उच्च शिक्षा में नई शिक्षा नीति में क्या अहम बदलाव हुए हैं? विस्तार से बताएं।

उत्तर: नई शिक्षा नीति में छात्र स्नातक में चार साल का पाठ्यक्रम पढ़ेंगे। इसमें भी विकल्प दिया गया है। जो विद्यार्थी ग्रेजुएशन के बाद नौकरी करना चाहते हैं एवं हायर एजुकेशन में नहीं जाना चाहते, उनके लिए तीन साल की डिग्री रखी गई है। वहीं, शोध में जाने वाले विद्यार्थियों के लिए चार साल की डिग्री रखी गई है।
चार साल की डिग्री करने वाले विद्यार्थी एक साल में स्नातकोत्तर कर पाएंगे। अगर कोई छात्र इंजीनियरिंग कोर्स को दो साल में ही छोड़ देता है, तो उसे डिप्लोमा प्रदान किया जाएगा। पांच साल का संयुक्त ग्रेजुएट -मास्टर कोर्स लाया जाएगा। अगर चार साल के डिग्री कोर्स में कोई विद्यार्थी पहले साल में ही कॉलेज छोड़ देता है, तो उसे सर्टिफिकेट मिलेगा। जबकि दूसरे साल के बाद एडवांस सर्टिफिकेट और तीसरे साल के बाद छोड़ने पर डिग्री मिलेगी। अगर विद्यार्थी पूरे चार साल पढ़ेगा तो चार साल बाद की डिग्री उसे शोध के साथ मिलेगी। इसी तरह से पोस्ट ग्रेजुएट में तीन तरह के विकल्प होंगे। जिन्होंने तीन साल का डिग्री कोर्स किया है उनके लिए दो साल का मास्टर्स होगा। दूसरा- चार साल के डिग्री कोर्स करने वाले विद्यार्थियों के लिए एक साल का एमए होगा। तीसरा- पांच साल का इंटिग्रेडेट प्रोग्राम होगा जिसमें स्नातक और स्नातकोत्तर दोनों एक साथ हो जाए।

  1. सवाल: नई शिक्षा नीति में एमफिल और पीएचडी के लिए क्या प्रावधान हैं?

उत्तर- नई शिक्षा नीति में एमफिल को खत्म कर दिया गया है।अब पीएचडी के लिए चार साल की डिग्री शोध के साथ अनिवार्य होगी।

  1. सवाल: 5+3+3+4 फॉर्मेंट क्या है?

उत्तर: नई शिक्षा नीति में 10+2 की जगह सरकार 5+3+3+4 का फॉर्मूला लाई है। इसमें 5 का अर्थ है कि तीन साल प्री-स्कूल के और उसके बाद के दो साल पहली और दूसरी कक्षा के। 3 का अर्थ है- तीसरी, चौथी और पांचवी कक्षा। इसके बाद के 3 का अर्थ है- छठी, सांतवीं और आठवीं कक्षा। आखिर वाले 4 का अर्थ है- नौवीं, दसवीं, ग्यारहवीं और बारहवीं कक्षा।
यानी बच्चे अब तीन साल की उम्र में फॉर्मल स्कूल में जाने लगेंगे। छह साल की उम्र में बच्चा पहले की तरह की पहली कक्षा में होगा। दरअसल, नई व्यवस्था में प्ले-स्कूल के शुरुआती साल भी स्कूली शिक्षा में जोड़े गए हैं।

  1. सवाल: 2030 तक हर जिले में उच्च शिक्षण संस्थान और नेशनल रिसर्च फाउंडेशन क्या है?

उत्तर: नई शिक्षा नीति में शोध के लिए नेशनल रिसर्च फाउंडेशन स्थापित करने की बात कही गई है। उच्च शिक्षण संस्थानों को बहु विषयक संस्थानों में बदला जाएगा। 2030 तक हर जिले में एक उच्च शिक्षण संस्थान स्थापित किया जाएगा। ऑनलाइन शिक्षा के लिए क्षेत्रीय भाषाओं में कंटेट तैयार होगा, वर्चुअल लैब, डिजिटल लाइब्रेरी, स्कूलों, शिक्षकों और छात्रों को डिजिट संसाधनों से लैस किया जाएगा। कला, संगीत, शिल्प, खेल, योग, सामुदायिक सेवा जैसे सभी विषयों को भी पाठ्यक्रम में शामिल किया जाएगा।

अब छठी कक्षा से ही बच्चे को प्रोफेशनल और स्किल की शिक्षा दी जाएगी। स्कूल में ही बच्चे को नौकरी के जरूरी प्रोफेशनल शिक्षा दी जाएगी। पांचवीं तक और जहां तक संभव हो सके आठवीं तक मातृभाषा में ही शिक्षा उपलब्ध कराई जाएगी। नेशनल एसेसमेंट सेंटर बनाया जाएगा जो बच्चों के सीखने की क्षमता का वक्त-वक्त पर परीक्षण करेगा।

  1. सवाल: यूजीसी को खत्म कर रेगुलेटरी बॉडी क्या है?

उत्तर: नई शिक्षा नीति में यूजीसी, एनसीटीई और एआईसीटीई को खत्म करके एक रेगुलेटरी बॉडी बनाई जाएगी। हालांकि, अभी यह नहीं बताया गया है कि इस नियामक बॉडी का स्वरूप कैसा होगा। कॉलेजों को स्वायत्ता (ग्रेडेड ओटोनॉमी) देकर 15 साल में विश्वविद्यालयों से संबद्धता की प्रक्रिया को पूरी तरह से खत्म कर दिया जाएगा। उच्च शिक्षण संस्थानों में प्रवेश के लिए कॉमन एंट्रेंस एग्जाम होगा। यह संस्थान के लिए अनिवार्य नहीं होगा। राष्ट्रीय परीक्षा एजेंसी यह परीक्षा कराएगी।

नई शिक्षा नीति में स्कूल शिक्षा और उच्च शिक्षा में दस-दस बड़े सुधारों पर मुहर लगाई गई है। प्री-प्राइमरी शिक्षा के लिए एक विशेष पाठ्यक्रम तैयार होगा। इसके तहत तीन से छह साल तक की आयु के बच्चे आएंगे। 2025 तक कक्षा तीन तक के छात्रों को मूलभूत साक्षरता तथा अंकज्ञान सुनिश्चित किया जाएगा। मिडिल कक्षाओं की पढ़ाई पूरी तरह बदल जाएगी। कक्षा छह से आठ के बीच विषयों की पढ़ाई होगी। फीस पर नियंत्रण के लिए तंत्र तैयार होगा। केंद्रीय विश्वविद्यालय, राज्य विश्वविद्यालय, डीम्ड विश्वविद्यालय और प्राइवेट विश्वविद्यालय के लिए एक ही नियम होगा। नई शिक्षा नीति में टेक्नोलॉजी और ऑनलाइन एजुकेशन पर जोर दिया गया है।हर जिले में कला, करियर और खेल-संबंधी गतिविधियों में भाग लेने के लिए एक विशेष बोर्डिंग स्कूल के रूप में ‘बाल भवन’ स्थापित किया जाएगा। मानव संसाधन विकास मंत्रालय (एमएचआरडी) का नाम बदलकर शिक्षा मंत्रालय किया गया है। विद्यार्थियों को स्कूल के सभी स्तरों और उच्च शिक्षा में संस्कृत को एक विकल्प के रूप में चुनने का अवसर दिया जाएगा। नई शिक्षा नीति में विदेशी विश्वविद्यालयों को भारत में कैंपस खोलने की अनुमति मिलेगी।

मित्रों नई शिक्षा नीति के तहत स्कूली शिक्षा से लेकर उच्च शिक्षा में कई अहम बदलाव हुए हैं और ये के. कस्तूरीरंगन की अध्यक्षता में बनी है। राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति (NEP) 1986 में ड्राफ्ट हुई थी और 1992 में इसमें संशोधन (अपडेट) हुआ एवं करीब 34 साल बाद 2020 में इसमें कई अहम व महत्वपूर्ण बदलाव किए गए हैं। जिसे इसके 108 पेजों के ड्राफ्ट में 21वीं शताब्दी की पहली शिक्षा नीति बताया गया है, जिसका लक्ष्य देश के विकास के लिए अनिवार्य आवश्यकता को पूरा करना है। बता दें कि 2014 के लोकसभा चुनाव से पहले से ही राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति सत्तारूढ़ भारतीय जनता पार्टी (BJP) के चुनाव घोषणापत्र का हिस्सा थी।

7 Desi & Practical ways to Avoid Distractions and Stay Focused

Here are 7 practical and desi tips to help you stay focused in education or at work by managing distraction, drawing healthy boundaries, and eliminating opportunities for procrastination.

1. “Ek Sadhey Sab Sadhey – Sab Sadhey Sab Jaye”

In today’s ever-demanding world, many of us think about part time jobs, careers or opportunities for alternate income. I personally don’t see much problem in that, it’s also said that don’t put all eggs in one basket. But such scenario surely leads to mess and confusing day schedules and leads to procrastination. That’s the problem. Now one of the practical solutions can be “One Time One Project” kind of focus. This idea I have got from Yogi jis ODOP policy. For me it works and for many of us it can work if we really define focus hours, weeks or days for a single project and then give our best to that.

2 . Keep Your Vision & Goals in Mind

First things first, why do you even need to focus? Do you want to become a skilled guitar player? Do you want to write a novel? Do you want to start working from home?

Think about it.

Knowing why we need to stay focused can help us push through the tough and tedious parts of accomplishing our goals. That’s when our ability to focus is really tested and when it’s most needed.

3. Become an early bird.

This is a simple thing, but the rewards are great if you can pull it off: Start your workday an hour before everyone else. Use that hour to organize your day and to get started before there are any distractions. Similarly, skip the long office lunches most days and instead give yourself a short break to take a walk or clear your head, with something light and nutritious to keep your blood sugar steady. You’re literally giving yourself time and energy.

4. Delegate.

Are you working long hours? Lagging behind? Let go of your ego and let go of your workload. Give your staff the challenges they want, and give yourself a break. You’ll become more efficient and your team will welcome the trust and faith you’ve invested in them.

We’ve given you some great tips. But are you really up for the challenge? If your answer is yes, then brace yourself — you’re going to be making significant sacrifices and changes in your daily routine.

5. Use Airplane Mode or Silent Mode

You can also use airplane mode to limit text message and phone call interruptions during certain times of day. If the idea of doing this gives you anxiety, you can always exempt specific numbers, such as those of loved ones or valued and important business associates. You can set “Do Not Disturb” mode on an iPhone to allow your designated “favorite” contacts to get through, while silencing other calls or messages.

6. Find the Right Place to Do Work

Some students work best with a little background noise, while others need complete quiet. Get to know your work style and the type of atmosphere you prefer. Are you the kind of person who works better in silence at the library? Or do you prefer the campus coffee shop with ambient noise? Try a few different spaces and see how each study session works out.

7. Break Down Your Work into Smaller Tasks

Defeat procrastination by breaking a large project into small pieces. It’s easier to motivate yourself to do something in smaller tasks rather than jumping into a huge one. If you’re having a difficult time studying or getting work done, break up your time effectively. Try giving yourself a 10-minute break for every 45-50 minutes of work you do. Studies show that taking breaks can help you retain information and increase productivity.

5 Work From Home Tips You Need to Be Super Productive during COVID-19

Are you struggling to work from home and be as productive as you were at the office?

But no matter how many work from home tips your boss gives you, your day always seems to take a weird turn around lunchtime. But just like any professional skill, being productive while working from home can easily be learned. So, in today’s post, we’re going to share 5 work from home tips for success that will keep you focused, productive, and excited about your work.

So get out of bed, read the rest of this article, and get ready to master the art of working from home.

1. Set a routine
If working from home is going to be an everyday thing, this is an essential step to success. Just like a structured day in an office environment, learn to structure your day in a similar way at home. Set hours for yourself and schedule out tasks so that you have direction throughout the day. Make the schedule and stick to it on a daily basis. Make sure to include time for lunch and also include time for breaks to refresh and recharge.

2. Separate work from home
One of the most difficult parts about working at home is separating your work-life from your home-life. To avoid having an imbalance between the two, stick to the hours you have set for yourself and when you’re outside those hours, disconnect from work. Whether that means turning off the computer, putting away your designs or turning off your phone. Also, creating a separate space to work in, like a home office, can greatly increase your productivity. Just because you work from home does not mean that work is your entire life.

3. Set up break timings
So you don’t work in a corporate office, that doesn’t mean that you’re stuck in one place. On days where you feel stir-crazy or unmotivated, switch venues and set up your office in a library or a study room for the day. This will prevent you from having an unproductive day and feeling antsy in your house. Even if it’s for an hour or so, venturing out of the house can help you regain your focus in a new setting.

4. Stay connected
Working at home can be feel lonely and isolated. To avoid feeling disconnected and bored, schedule coffee meetings, lunch dates and meet with clients outside of your home on a regular basis. Even heading to a coffee shop can prevent you from feeling disconnected from the working world.

5. Recognize distractions
Working at home will usually provide more distractions than an office environment. From kids to phone calls, your day can get interrupted more often than you’d like it to. In these moments it can be easy to get frustrated that your day isn’t going as planned. Recognize the distraction and take the time you need to regroup and get back to work. Going back and forth from life to work over and over can become exhausting and really dampen the quality of your work.
